“As Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh reiterated his intention Thursday to remain with the Wolverines in 2023, the NCAA is investigating the program for alleged violations during the COVID-19 recruiting dead period, sources told ESPN.

The violations include alleged impermissible contact with recruits during the NCAA-mandated dead periods, as well as the use of a defensive analyst for on-field coaching activities, a rules violation. Sources told ESPN that Harbaugh's cooperation with NCAA enforcement staff during the investigation is also being examined. Harbaugh could face penalties that include a multigame suspension, sources said”

The guy is basically doing a year to year contract with UM and interviews every time an NFL job opens up. I doubt he cares if the NCAA leaves their strip mall offices to shake their fists at him.

It really wouldn’t hurt my feelings if Harbaugh went back to the NFL. I think he’s better suited for that league.

Definitely better suited. I don’t care much either way. Until JM he was never on our radar as a threat. A few years ago I would said OhSt would’ve hated to see him leave. But he seems to be in Day’s head at this point, so they probably win if he leaves.

Are ‘recruiting violations’ really even a thing anymore, beyond maybe some selective enforcement? If you can win a national bidding battle for recruits, what really is the point of policing whether an analyst has some on-field interaction, etc.? At least at one time a lot of the shady dealings with recruiting were attempted to be hidden from plain sight. As it’s been described of late, the whole thing’s a Wild West Show and whether you agree with what it’s become or are disgusted by it, if you don’t jump in and start playing/paying, you’ve essentially relegated yourself to ‘has been’ or ‘never will be’ status.

Yes. You can entice kids with promises of millions of dollars ponied up by boosters to play at your school. Just not during the pre designated weeks of June 18-25, Dec 1-5, Jan 26-31, and between 7:30-8:00 on most Monday and Tuesday evenings(but that mostly to avoid interrupting Seinfeld reruns).

Odd, right? We let you pay kids but expect you to respect our rules, which really don’t make sense now anyway. Did I read correctly LSU was fined $5,000? Big deal..

Hope it doesn't get too tense for Booger Boy. He might not be the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Harbaugh already talked with the Panthers about a HC position, which tells you he's at least thinking about leaving. I think he may be a goner.

Harbaugh has already proven he can get it done at the NFL level. More money, less Mickey Mouse. He's gone.

Michigan has placed co-offensive coordinator Matt Weiss on leave amid a University of Michigan Police Department investigation into alleged computer access crimes that occurred at Schembechler Hall in December.

Quite the challenge for the Wolverines to be without their HC for their first 4 games. Especially considering how tough their schedule starts out:

East Carolina
UNLV
Bowling Green
Rutgers

(All at home by the way)

However will they survive?

Jimmy will just be using the down time for NFL interviews.
