Welcome Back To Michigan, Jim Harbaugh

It was a great day in Michigan football as Jim Harbaugh was hired as the new head coach last month (I wanted to post this when he was formally introduced but the holidays kept me away from blogging).

I think that some people were surprised that he was coming to UofM because of the allure of the other NFL head coaching job openings.

It will probably be a few years until we’re back in the mix of the upper echelon of top football programs but I have complete trust in Jim Harbaugh.

After watching OSU beat down on Oregon last night at the National Championship game, Harbaugh has a tough road ahead of him to compete not only when they play but recruiting. Michigan State is also no joke as a football program. Now with Harbaugh coaching, it raises the level of the Big Ten and hopefully the Michigan/Ohio State rivalry will become more relevant as the game to watch at the end of the Big Ten season.
