    This is a mess for Michigan that they created for themselves. They forced a restructured contract on Harbaugh and he goes out an finally beats OSU. He gets them to the CFP. Now he's suddenly worth more than MIchigan is paying him it would seem. If I were Harbaugh I'd have no faith in the administration there not pushing you out eventually. Time to leave.

    I read a few things that Harbaugh is interviewing today (Wed Feb 2nd) and it is a formality. He hasn't had a meeting with players, though has said goodbyes to some in the Michigan football offices, which I find strange because he very well knows this isn't going to stay a secret. The same articles both said that Matt Rhule would be their top target. Even with a pair of five win seasons at Carolina, I cannot see him leaving NFL for Michigan. I also don't see this as a place Luke would accept; there's too many decades of hate for Luke to have to take back. I'm pulling for internal promotions that were mentioned, Mike Hart or Josh Gattis.

    It's been 3 weeks, but let's fire this thread up again. A report is out suggesting Jim Harbaugh is likely going to take the Minnesota Vikings job: https://www.on3.com/teams/michigan-w...esota-vikings/

    We may be off the hook here. The GM at Chicago was also fired during this. He was the one pushing for Ryan Day.

    Day won’t leave aO$U to go to the NFL. He has one of the premier jobs in college football. Plus, he has been shaking up his coaching staff at aO$U. His team should be very good again next year and recruits keep coming to play for him. He is set for a long time at aO$U. As far as the other NFL jobs, I don’t see Fickell being interested in any of those jobs. UC should be safe for one more year.

    Yikes. This could really put UC back a few years. I can't see Fickell leaving UC high and dry so late in process, but if Day does go to Chicago I also can't see him passing on that opportunity. Urban Meyer (I kid) or Gino Guidugli as the next man in as head coach if it happens?

    Or he is going to jump ship before it hits the fan. He may feel that they won't have the talent next year to compete, maybe some rules, maybe he wants to get out on top after making the CFP and beating tosu.

    He won the big game . His value is up . Bears owner likes him and U of M talent goes to the NFL except for youg QB, RB and a few others. The two DEs are gone. Then again he took a pay cut last year and his value is high right now for a new contract at Michigan.

    Kicking an employee is usually ground for termination. Apparently there was also an incident of some sort with Trevor Lawrence.
    Proof is needed and even with that, settlements are made. The Jags don't want bad publicity. They do want the money and a scapegoat for the hire, but do they want the publicity and a trial in the state of Florida where Urban is well liked. The Jags need to sell tickets when they have a lousy team. Thus a reason why they hired Urban knowing his rep. Urban sells tickets. We often reap what we sow. I think many at UC would welcome Urban back as an advisor (maybe more) as well as the folks in Columbus and South Bend etc.

    People sure forgave Jim Tressel after a couple of years. Heck Kelly was welcomed back. People are forgiving when it comes to sport heroes (not Bonds), but in Cincy, Pete Rose and Marge Schott are examples. Winning works wonders. How many chances did Bobby Petrino and others get.

    I said it when he was coaching aO$U and it now is coming to light. Urban is a dirty person who will skirt any rules to win. It worked for him in college because he won and got players to the NFL - it was in his players best interest to stay silent. At Jacksonville, the players he coached were already in the NFL and did not have to put up with his antics. It was just a matter of time before he was exposed by the NFL as a mediocre bench coach. There is no way I want him associated with UC football now or ever. Keep your dirty hands away from our program, Urban.
    That is what you think and you are entitled. You answered a question which I never asked. What I said was saying it was for cause and proving it are two different things. Of course the jags are going to say it was for cause. What will Urban's
    lawyers say. The bible covered that years ago and I know they teach that in Law School

    New Living Translation
    The first to speak in court sounds right— until the cross-examination begins.

    English Standard Version
    The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.

    Proverbs 18:17

    It will be some mud slinging (maybe not), but I believe a settlement will be reached. The Jags just gave the opening shot. Just because they claimed it was for cause doesn't make it so . If you notice, Urban's strategy is taking the high road trying to do damage control for his rep and get the people. He apologized to the fans in Jacksonville, said they were great and said the Jag's ownership were really good guys. It is all maneuvering as money and reps are involved. The Jag's ownership need a scapegoat to make look bad so they get off looking bad for the hire. Urban wants the money and wants his rep cleared.

    Winning covers a multitude of sins and the Jags have been losers for a few too many years. Remember Urban coached at U of F less than 75 miles from Jacksonville. He has many fans who care for the gators and not so much for the Jags. There is a lot here.

    Bumping this -- would rather talk about UC's OC situation (GIno G if Denbrock leaves?) than Urban Meyer!
