Former Michigan All America quarterback Jim Harbaugh has been elevated to the big time, he’s going to coach in the Pac 10 at Stanford. He’ll have his work cut out for him as departing coach Walt Harris has left him with the team that went 1-11, and only one of the losses was even close.

I noticed that the Stanford editorial staff isn’t quite on the ball, stating that Harbaugh was scheduled to “meet the media Tuesday at 2 pm, PDT.” Pacific Daylight Time? Gang, we switched over to Standard time several weeks ago.

If Harbaugh can turn things around at Stanford he’ll quickly jump to the top of list of potential Lloyd Carr successors.

  1. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to hear the Michigan crowd erupt on October 4, 2008 (homecoming, vs Illinois) when the score from the Stanford/Notre Dame game (in South Bend) is announced and Standford is in the lead. I only wonder how long it will take before people place Coach Harbaugh, rightly or wrongly, at the top of their wish lists to eventually succeed Lloyd Carr.

    Lets not rush things. Give Harbaugh time to prove himself without all the pressure of being the heir apparent. Would you go to Stanford if you thought that the coach would soon depart for another job? Nothing would lower Harbaugh’s chance for success than having players not wanting to come to Stanford because the coach was only using them to further his own career. Also, just being a former star player would not make him the right coach for Michigan. Remember the former star player coach that was replaced with Bo?
