    IMO Ross never wanted Harbaugh to coach Miami

    IMO all this recruiting was for him to get Harbaugh to HC michigan. All these reports that miami offered him 7-8 mill is FALSE. You are technically allowed to interview coaches while you have another, but cant make offers. Also there we reporters that quoted sparano saying "there was no news here, nothing is changing" which leads me to believe that he was in the loop the whole time of what is going on. They NEVER went through the process of the rooney rule.

    Ross is a huge Michigan guy and the biggest donator they have and i truely believe he went on this trp to SF to try and pitch Michigan to Harbaugh one last time. Dont you find it wierd that before stanfords season was over, everyone was talking about harbaugh loving michigan and michigan loving harbaugh and they never even talked. He and Les miles have a buyout clauses in there contract to be able to go to michigan if they get a chance.

    I would like to hope that that was the case. It would def help remove some of this backlash MIA is receiving.

    There are $8,000,000.00 reasons why we know he was interested.

    You do not fly cross country and offer and $8million contract to someone your not really interested in.

    What most likely happen is Ross was informed by Harbaugh or his folks that he is going to return to Standford and wanted to save face.

    I'm not sure about the premise of the Michigan slant.. but definitely.. no offer was made. So I can't understand why the media is getting uptight. Discussions are one thing. Firm offers are another. And every outlet reported no offer was officially made.

    So the hype lies where?


    It takes discipline to not formulate opinions about something WITHOUT KNOWING ALL THE FACTS.

    Oh I beleive It was closer to $8mill then you think.

    Harbaugh didnt want to be here, only the offer we presented even kept us in the conversation.

    I believe the OP is in the denial phase of the 5 steps.
