Where does Michigan go? Jim Harbaugh is an option worth pursuing

In May 2011, just four months after Brady Hoke was named Michigan’s head coach, he secured a verbal commitment from a high school sophomore named Shane Morris, a five-star quarterback recruit from the blue-collar suburbs of Detroit.

This was to be the perfect old-school Wolverine marriage, a coach who understood the culture – “It’s Michigan for God’s sake” – and the return of the great pro-style passer that drove the program for decades. The spread was going to be dead.

Well, we see how well THAT has worked for our boys in Maize and Blue.
