So, Harbaugh moving on to L.A. to coach the Rams? If that happens, does that mean Les Miles to Ann Arbor?

Harbaugh moving on to L.A. to coach the Rams?

Oh, say it ain't so! As a Buckeyes fan, I was looking forward to years, maybe even decades, of sideline and postgame meltdowns. This year's game was the most entertaining Michigan-OSU game in 15 years, and even it was eclipsed by Harbaugh's theatrics and conniptions.

Harbaugh ought to beat Urban before he tries to go anywhere. He also ought to see what life in the Top 10 would be like once he had a chance to roster a few more game changers and difference makers.

Harbaugh makes 9 mil per year now. Kroenke would have to pay him a lot of Walton money to jump ship. The Rams would have to go into eight figures to make it happen.

If Harbaugh is not going anywhere, he needs to snuff this thing out soon. If UM doesn't play well in the Orange Bowl, people will partially blame him for allowing this to cause a distraction.

He'd be absolutely nuts to leave. He's the highest paid HC in college ball and he's in a perfect situation. The combination of him with that program creates a national presence that is greater than the sum of the parts. They're centrally relevant to the discussion regardless of their W-L record. The Wolverines were flat out not prestigious or relevant when they were screwing around with the likes of Hoke and Rich Rod.

And if he jumped ship before the bowl game, he knows that the ghost of Schembechler would make him lie down on his back at the 50 yard line and give him a facial with a volcanic Cleveland Steamer.
