How’s this for a harbaugh replacement....Eric Bienemy.

That’s the style of offense I want to see. Explosive, vertical down the field passing game.

He’s got a lot of experience in the college ranks as well as nfl.

Go all in at him throw a ton of money at him.
That's who I want the Lions to hire

Didn't Hill go pro early, and Thomas opt out?
Yep, but they haven’t recruited anything behind those guys. 

Hill and Long were both 2016 class and AT was 2017. Pretty sure all 3 were GMatt/Partridge recruits. Harbaugh’s staff haven’t recruited anyone of note at CB in 2018, 2019, or 2020. 

2022 5 STARZ and top 10 player overall CB’s Domani Jackson and Will Johnson were early Michigan leans. Now both are more than likely going to wind up at Ohio State.

Greenberg over at ESPN is pushing for his Jets to fire Adam Gase and hire Harbaugh.

DO IT.

today kids seem to blow with the popular breeze,which many times creates logjams at positions.But this is a season Sparty would like to find out.

  And Michigan would have to be crazy to extend Harbaughs contract after losing to Sparty.IMO UM/JH are going to go their seperate ways.Save M running the table

I think that caveat at the end is very important and I'll add that I'm not even sure that they have to run the table.  

I think a lot of these posts are overreaction to what was, at the end of the day, ONE GAME.  
  • In 2018 Ohio State lost to by 29 points to a Purdue team that finished below .500.  That was an ugly loss, but the team was a great team that finished 13-1.  
  • In 2017 Ohio State lost by 31 to an Iowa team that finished 8-5.  That was an ugly loss, but the team was a good team that finished 12-2.  
  • In 2014 Ohio State lost by two TD's at home to a VaTech team that finished barely over .500.  That was an ugly loss but that was a great team that finished 14-1 with NC rings.  

I am not saying that this year's Michigan team IS going to recover to have a season similar to Ohio State's 2014, 2017, or 2018 seasons despite a bad loss.  All I am saying is that the season isn't over.  

The other thing I will note is that, IMHO, Michigan only has two-and-a-half games left that they will not be heavily favored in.  Check that, I see that they are only 3.5 point favorites over IU.  That is easy money, take Michigan.  The Hoosiers upset win over Penn State was a fluke, plain and simple.  They got outgained 488-211, got beat 27-16 in first downs and possessed the ball for less than half as long as the Nittany Lions.  They managed to eek out a win in OT only because PSU's three tunovers were more costly than Indiana's two and because PSU went 0-3 on FG's.  

Michigan's remaining games:
  • -3.5 @ IU:  IU is overrated.  Take Michigan and give the points.  
  • vs UW:  Who knows with this one.  The Badgers didn't play last Saturday and they aren't playing this Saturday.  Michigan could blow out a depleted and/or rusty Wisconsin or the game might not even be played, who knows.  
  • @ RU:  This will be an easy win.  
  • vs PSU:  Michigan hasn't lost at home to Penn State since 2009.  I still think Penn State might be the second best team in the league but they are 0-2 and didn't look particularly competitive against #1.  
  • vs UMD:  This will be an easy win.  

If Michigan beats Penn State and either beats or doesn't play Wisconsin then they should head to Columbus on December 12 playing for a spot in the B1GCG.  Even if they DO get blown out in Columbus (hardly a given IMHO), I still don't think you fire a coach who has you that close.

Agreed.  Time to extend his contract.  :93:

Michigan in general, and Michigan under Harbaugh, has not earned the benefit of the doubt in the way that Ohio State has.

Eh, they've earned the benefit to be fine.  They got blown out by Wisconsin last year, they lost to ND the year before, to a QB who was so bad he got benched a couple weeks later.

It wouldn't shock me if they went 7-2.

David Pollock suggested UM hire Hugh Freeze.  There is a 0% chance of the higher ups in Ann Arbor would sign off on that
