Wojo: Harbaugh sells Michigan any way he can

When Harbaugh, Dantonio, Meyer and others gather Friday at the "Sound Mind, Sound Body" camp at Dakota High in Macomb, I imagine they'll be cordial. They might even share a chuckle about the SEC's hilarious outrage over Harbaugh's satellite-camp tour. If Big Ten coaches can look past their inherent aggravation with Michigan, they'll recognize Harbaugh's motive reflects their own, just more flamboyantly.

Ohio State and Michigan State are legitimate national title contenders again, and Michigan fighting back doesn't diminish what they've done. That's the whiny fan reaction, that all the Harbaugh publicity is producing meaningless "victories." He hasn't rocketed up the recruiting rankings yet, but rather than wait for players to bow to the winged helmet, he's actively chasing.


Quote
Now the SEC is pushing the NCAA to ban satellite camps because they create an unfair advantage, the most-amusing statement ever. Maybe if the Big Ten took a few more elite Southern kids off their hands, those schools wouldn't have to grossly over-sign, like gluttons at a Cracker Barrel.

Ah, Cracker Barrel, Harbaugh's favorite restaurant. Why does he like it so much? What does it all mean?!

Clues are sprinkled on Harbaugh's Twitter page, and they're probably not as deep as they seem. (Or are they?) A few days ago, he posted these lyrics from a John Lennon song: "People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing, give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin. When I say I'm OK, they look at me kind of strange."

That's the look all right, and by nature and calculation, Harbaugh is embracing it.

Harbaugh encouraging athletes to 'work a job' during summer practice sessions...

"they should know how to pay taxes by the time they graduate":

More than one coach isn't thrilled with Harbaugh:

I'm not surprised that he is one of those kind of guys that would not be at all well liked by his peers.  Personally, I kind of admire that as long as the results are there to justify it.

Well I think they did better than most fans actually expected... 

will now be interesting to see if there are any other 'raids' or losses to the existing coaching staff in the 'off' season...

I know there are plenty of opinions on the gaps they need to fill in the player talent holes...

Harbaugh may lose some more coaches but i bet he will be able to replace them with more talented ones.

He's as good at recognizing potential talent as they come!

Plus with what he's done at M this year he's in a much better position to recruit than he was last year.

#14 in the country with 3 losses shows the respect once lost for this program is back.

After the head coach carousel is done - I'm sure he'll do just fine getting a replacement!

Report: Boston College's Don Brown will be Michigan's new defensive coordinator

ANN ARBOR -- Don Brown guided the No. 1-ranked defense in America last season.

Apparently, that was good enough for Jim Harbaugh.

Sports Illustrated reported Sunday that Brown -- who spent the past three seasons running Boston College's defense -- will be Michigan's new defensive coordinator.

Brown, 60, led a Boston College defense that ranked No. 1 nationally with 254.3 yards per game allowed in 2015. BC's rush defense allowed 83.2 yards per game (No. 2) and its pass defense was ranked No. 8 (171.2).

I doesn't hurt that they actually pay the Assistants well either!

Not a bad hire at all.

I knew there was nothing to worry about.

Sounds like a great idea to me!

Michigan Wolverines head football coach Jim Harbaugh is always trying to stay one step ahead of the competition. His latest idea involves holding his team's spring practice out of state in Florida.
