Lol. UofM's endowment is north of $13 billion. And they don't touch the endowment money for athletics or football program. That's all self-funded through ticket sales, merchandising, tv money, and donations.

His buyout would be $6 million- what he is owed in 2021. If they really want to get rid of him, that isn't going to stop them and they could find any number of rich donors to donate the money to pay him off.
I was being facetious but only a little,meaning keeping expenditures in line.With no income from  empty stadiums and perhaps waning interest abroad they should be careful throwing away more money.Unless they are willing to take a chance on an up and comer with more favorable contract to the Program

Michigan Men have money
Does UM go after a Michigan man to replace him?  Are there any?  I know RichRod didn't work out, but adhering only to UM guys is stupid.

Youtube also allows you to tinker with the playback speed. So you can knock those minutes out in 30 seconds each, if you like.
Eureka! Fearless must've been watching it on half speed, making each minute last 2 minutes.

There's a youtube channel I use when I teach, which is really good and informative, but the lady is really shrill and speaks really fast.  Too fast for my students to really take in what's she's saying.  So when I share with other teachers, I specify to play the videos at .75 speed.  They laugh, but then later tell me I was right, lol.

There aren't any "Michigan Men" out there that would be legit candidates. They went after an outsider in RichRod. Didn't work out, but RichRod didn't work out at Arizona either.

It's going to be hard to find someone to replace Jim. They will probably have to roll the dice on an up and comer.

Why not call it a mulligan and get a free 2021 out of JH while you are looking and thinking about it?

Maybe they do a lot better next season.  Maybe not, and if not, the decision becomes crystal clear.  And you've had time to search carefully and explore and sound people out, like Fickell (who has to be on everyone's list).

Fickel could be the next Tom Hermann.

Every coach who does well at a smaller program might be the next Herman, or Saban, or whatever.  This doesn't always translate, as we all know.

I imagine Will Muschamp at USCe (remember them) is about to be a DC somewhere again.

they're beginning to tire of Hermann on the 40 acres, bring him back to the Big Ten

Making coaching change decisions based on this season is loony.

That's where I'm leaning as well, short of some "for cause" event.
