SimpLLLLLe Jim "9-4" Harbaugh (chicken hater/lover/fluffer/Asp-hole)

    Get back on topic and get back to slamming these hapless dickheads.

    I’m forever thankful for the 2014 run; I really am. But the 2015 debacle made my perception of Meyer — opaque at best. That was one of the grossest mismanagement-of-talent occurrences to which I’ve ever bared witness as a football fan. I don’t know what his actions were in the locker room or sidelines but nevertheless I’ll alwaya have the sense that he essentially just let it happen.

    This was succeeded by the “that wasnt the game plan” response following the 31-0 game. That made even less sense to me. Are you telling me — by your own admission — your OC completely deviated from the plan your staff devised and you allowed it?

    I get it’s easy to blame coordinators but as someone who has managed managers, when their teams are making the same mistakes without explanation I’m asking the department head hard questions, not their staff.

    Sorry I’m done. Meyer was amazing and the guy won 90% of his tenure and I’m being a greedy little whiney bitch but I can’t let that season go.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    I'm definitely in the camp that, moving forward, Day is an upgrade and fits both the current game and mentality of high talent players better than Meyer. Now, we just have to hold onto him.

    I'm very excited about the road ahead with Ryan Day, but I'm gonna hold off on calling him and upgrade for a few years. If he surpasses Meyer's 1 NC, or wins >90% of his games and a NC after 6-7 years, then yep. Make no mistake, Ryan Day blasted out of the gates because of the program Urban Meyer built. One thing I am fairly certain of is that there will be no Zach Smiths or Bill Davis under Day.

    Back on topic, they both eat and will continue to eat Simple Jim's lunch.

    As did Earle when Woody left...might sound cynical but while I’m impressed I want to see the program remain on its projection. We didn’t have the insight then into recruiting and the daily team reports that we do today, so it is a bit hard to know the comparison. Absolutely love what Day is bringing so far.

    This.

    Earle was a 2 point conversion play away from a NC in his first year with Woody's guys who appreciated the fresh approach.

    Let's just see.

    In the meantime, Harbaugh's unmasked and Michigan still sucks.

    I feel pretty confident that Day is the real deal. I really did expect some drop-off in recruiting when Urban retired and the train has just kept on chuggin' along, even picking up steam in 2021. I love his choice in assistants so far. Hearing him speak, he is clearly a very bright guy. His relative youth (40) vs. Earle (48 when he got the job) helps make him more appealing to recruits. He seems to be a legitimate whiz with QBs. His work with JTB, Haskins and Fields speaks for itself, but maybe most impressive to me was what he did with Kaepernick in SF. After posting a 98 QBR with the 49ers in 2012, Kaep's numbers fell each season, bottoming out at a bad 78.5 in 2015. Be was hard-broken after the 2015 season. In one year, Day turned him back into a functional NFL QB with a very solid 90.7 QBR.

    Gene Smith and Urban thought enough of him to hand him the keys to a well-oiled machine without even looking at anyone else. That says a lot to me. But, the program and procedures that Urban spent 7 years putting into place made the transition unusually smooth. The guy was an unknown career assistant when Urban tapped him in 2017, and the offense, which had stagnated under the mismanagement of Tim Beck and Ed Warriner immediately became a ruthlessly efficient machine. Urban had his faults, but he built a program so strong that he could hand it to his hand-picked successor without missing a beat. Meyer deserves a ton of credit for how smoothly the transition has gone.

    On topic, Harbaugh looks like the kind of guy that farts in the Walmart checkout line while making eye contact.

    Cuomo in the Afternoon, Trump at dinner time, and Harbaugh nowhere to be seen.

    All joking aside, I just hope that during this time of dangerous Coronavirus contagion, Harbaugh has successfully been able to refrain from picking his nose.

    Are you kidding me?

    This moron ran into traffic with a coat over his head as a child, was hit by a mail truck and lived.

    I'm convinced he could go lick a COVID-19 petri dish and still be the last motherfucker left alive on earth.
