Didn't need a crystal ball to predict this one back in August.

Doesn't look like Harbaugh is coming either. They may end up with Brady Hoke. That would make sense, and wouldn't exactly send OSU fans screaming in terror at the prospect of an imminent UM powerhouse.

IMO not a leak but Harbaugh didn't pick up the phone. At this point if they cannot get a legit guy, their guy, and one of their own, they are stuck b/c with RRod they suck and if he leave it is at least 3 more years of suck until a real system is reloaded into that program.

scum has nobody to blame but themselves, the second they hired RRod they set the program back 5 years, at minimum.

Can't see how you keep him now without a strong PR machine that basically puts this all on the media. That will make things worse for the program.

The AD has wet the bed here as well as this story continues.

Make your call and move on. One way or the other.

Word I hear is that Harbaugh is a divorced dad and his ex & kids live in the Bay Area. Allegedly, if he goes to AA and he has no shared parenting rights per Cali law.

He'll stay at Stanford of take the SF job, which is probably more likely, but he'll want power.

If he leavs and steps out of his kids lives for 18 hour days 50 weeks out of the year at UM, he's a bigger cock than the guy he replaces, if that is possible.

Thus he won't, and that's why he's giving UM the Berwanger from what I hear.

I have ESPN on in the background and one of their guys just said Miles would still be a candidate. You hearing anything along those lines?

Everything I've read is all in for Harbaugh and then Hoke as a sure-thing backup plan if/when that fails.

All I know about Hoke is he's from Ohio and coached at michigan under Carr. He had success at Ball State which is impressive and he just finished a 9-win season at SD State after winning only 4 in his first season.

His Ohio ties and being a "michigan man" would bring an interesting dynamic back to the rivalry.

Just exactly how much is Miles' buyout?

I figured that no amount would be too high for UM to bring in Harbaugh, but it sounds like there is no amount. But, I agree, if they get the right guy the turnaround can be quick.

BTW: Michigan, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Alabama, USC? (Texas?) Close?

I've got a love/hate thing going with Les right now. Everytime I get to the point where I want to cut ties, he reels me back in. Sometimes I think that maybe he's some secret genius that's just fucking with us. But to answer the question about what we're hearing... not much. Miles made some comments today about it, but it was typical Les-speak. I haven't found the decoder ring for his press clippings yet.

As for the buyout, it's 1.25 mill for Michigan (contract linked below). I believe they paid right at double to WV for Rodriguez.

The problem with Hoke would be that it would take a complete shift of recruiting and personnel, so it would be a couple year turnaround. He runs a pro-style offense, so the run/pass is usually 50/50 or thereabouts. The biggest question would be how he handles a couple more years of Denard Robinson. Ryan Lindley, his current SDSU QB, had 158 rushing yards and no more than 46 in a game. But SDSU's RB led the conference in yards.

They hung right with TCU, though definitely deficient of talent on both sides of the ball against them. I think he'd be a good fit and he'd bring the rivalry back to some level of respectability.

That's the rumor, anyway. Do a google search "les miles gary moeller wife" and several hits will come back to internet forums where "insiders" say that Miles nailed Moeller's wife while both were on staff and explains why Miles wasn't considered for the job that Carr got. Bo didn't want Miles after that and there was no way Miles was going to get back to UM while Bo was alive. This alleged affair also led to or contributed to Moeller's problem with the bottle.

Interesting story, anyways. But it's why some UM fans say Miles has some "loose morals."

Again, all rumors and conjecture - God bless Al Gore for inventing the internet.

And if they hired Dick Rod, who says they have morals in Ann Arbor? Ed Martin?

Ok someone please spark my memory if I am off-base.

Let's rewind to when JT was hired at tOSU. There were some interesting debates on the boards about Mason Vs. JT for sure but.... From perusing the Michigan board, isn't pretty much anything outside of Harbaugh going to create huge rifts? People seem seriously bent over there when arguing about Hoke, Miles, and whatever other rumors (Pelini??) of guys besides Harbaugh. So much so that you can see another RichRod situation brewing where the guys comes in with wavering support. (not that I give two shits).

I don't seem to recall the differences being this bitter, but perhaps 10 years of success makes me forget. Any comparison?

I've always been hot and cold on Miles, but at this point I don't want to see him leave. Not due to his credit, but more because I have serious doubts about this administration being able to go out and make a solid coaching hire this late in the game. A week ago I thought that there was no way Miles would leave LSU, but in the past 5 days (after a few occurences) I have changed my tune.

I understand why UM would have some appeal for Miles, but if reputation is distinguished from reality, he'd be leaving a better program for a lesser one, and I'm not sure how much sense that makes right now. He's with a top 10 program (on a roll) and the turnaround in Ann Arbor is not going to take less than 3 years, IMO.

Where's the upside?

Brandon and 3 prominent UM boosters met with Miles tonight in Baton Rouge. Smoke around here is that they'll consummate the deal tomorrow in Dallas (AFCA convention) and he will be announced/introduced to the public Wednesday. If I heard correctly, I think they have a home hoops game Wednesday night against Ohio St so I would imagine he'd get his audience there. Still a fluid situation right now, wouldn't be surprised if Miles has a change of heart.

Right now I'd list it 65-35 (leaning towards Michigan). Whatever will happen will happen tomorrow. In 24 hours we'll know where Miles will hang his big ass hat next year.

you guys will be fine, imho.

LSU seems to be a program that can be quite interchange-able with talent at the HC position and still be one of the elite programs in CFB due in part to the talent in louisana and texas.

Has there ever been a coach that is quite as clueless about late-game (or late-half) clock management than Les Miles? Seriously, can anyone come up with someone worse?

Eric Mangini would like to have a word with you about this subject. :pb:
"It's all about winning for me, and I think the Cavs are committed to doing that," he said. "But at the same time I've given myself options to this point, and like I said before, me and my team, we have a game plan that we're going to execute, and we'll see what we get."

"We had a great time together."

Brady Hoke is waiting for the call....for UM's sake, just hoping he isn't pissed off about being so obviously their third choice.
