2021 Michigan Off-Season Thread

Rumors of mass exodus if Harbaugh stays. Sounding like Harbaugh is staying put.

True frosh OL Zach Carpenter hits the portal. Milton is a goner, but that is to be expected. McNamara took his job and McCarthy is coming in early. He wasn’t playing in 2021 unless injuries. There’d be a mutiny on Harbaugh’s hands if he was dumb enough to start Milton again anyway.

Lot of smoke around Dax Hill, Chris Hinton, and Zach Charbonnet getting the f out if Harbaugh stays. There will be others as well. 

You’d think 2021 should be a rebound year, but if they lose double digit players that were starters/essential role players to the portal they just might suck ass again. 

What a shitty situation. They really just need to get rid of Jim and start over. Sucks balls that they won’t do it.

SR DE Kwity Paye declares for NFL draft. He was a senior who even before this season in which he missed a big chunk of games- he missed 2 or 3- put a lot of good stuff on film for NFL evaluators and he'll test very well at the combine. With the COVID rules he could've come back for another year, but he really didn't need to- he's been getting a lot of hype as a 1st rd NFL draft pick.

RS SOPH OT Jalen Mayifled declares for NFL draft. This one is more dicey in my mind. I think it's a mistake. He played really well last year as a RS Frosh, and then this year he missed literally more than half the games. Michigan played what, 6 games? Mayfield missed 4 of them with injury. Is he really a 1st rd pick based off a good RS Frosh season and 2 games in 2020? I don't see it. He should've come back for his RS Jr year and proven himself.

RB Christian Turner has entered the transfer portal.

bunch of Michigan players/grad assistants/coaches have started randomly following PSU Co-DC Tim Banks and Oregon OC Joe Moorehead- and they've followed back. 

Could this mean Michigan is trying to hire them? Moorehead would be a home run and Tim Banks has been responsible for PSU raiding Detroit area for recruits like Lance Dixon, Enzo Jennings, Jaylen Reed, and the King brothers. Harbaugh made a complete mess of 'crootin the Detroit area- Banks would help repair the damage.

Problems solved
I honestly hate that he's being scapegoated. Whatever happened to the defense isn't 100% on Don Brown. The coaching turnover on that side of the ball has been a real problem the last 2 years, and Harbaugh didn't do nearly enough to try and ensure Chris Partridge and Greg Mattison stayed their asses put in Ann Arbor. If Harbaugh is really "that guy"- he doesn't let either of them get away without putting up a huge fight and giving them extensions with huge pay raisers. Partridge was BY FAR his ace recruiter and Mattison built solid defensive lines year in year out and is one of the all-time great defensive line coaches. Sure, Don Brown should've changed up his scheme, and the 2017 PSU game and 2018 & 2019 OSU games were complete disasters on defense- but let's not get it fricken twisted- for vast majority of 2016, 2017, and 2018- Don Brown's defenses saved Jim Harbaugh's ass.

Don Brown and that entire defensive staff needed to go....but the guy who really needs to go ain't name Don. His name be Jim.

I think CBs coach Mike Zordich is a keeper.  The issue at CB this year wasn’t coaching.  And in past years when Zordich also coached safeties, they played better.

Totally agree.  I was referring to MDot’s suggestion of sweeping the whole defensive staff.

Yeah, I don’t see it. Zordich is average at best position coach, he is a terrible recruiter, and he teaches his guys to hold and commit PI and Michigan CBs get called for more holds and PI than any team in the conference. How is that good coaching ?
