Will Michigan's Hire Have Ramifications on Richt's Inevitable Successor in 2012?

Meeeechigan is the all time winningest program in all of big-boy college football. Three years of mediocrity was all they could stand and Rich Rod was freed-up to take the Clempsun job as soon as they can afford it--what with them bank rolling the unemployed genius of Tummy Bowden. Huh......three years of sub-par performances gets you the axe in places that demand wins and greatness......imagine that.

Now despite the great wailing and gnashing of teeth from Richt-O-Philes their prophet is on his fair well tour.....The Mark Richt "Funky Like A Monkey" Tour 2011. Meechigan could alter the college football landscape depending on who they hire and how much they decide to pay him. Which will have ramifications in Athens when the coaching search begins at the end of this year or beginning of next year.

Conventional wisdom has Brady Hoke of San Diego State as the next head man. He has re-built two crappy programs, and most importantly he is a Meeechigan Man.
The problem with Hoke is he is clearly not the first choice and hiring him would amount to little more than a Marylandesque cock-teasing followed by a case of Edsall blue-balls. Meeeechigan needs a big hire considering the last one went over like a fart in church. The first choice of Michigan and the last choice of Kirk Heirbstreet is Jim Harbaugh.
Reports as late as yesterday had the Dolphins offering Harbaugh $8 million a year to take his talents to South Beach. However, it now appears the Fins will stick with their current coach. However, the 49ers are upping their offer and John Elway's horse teeth and mis-shapened torso have the Broncos in the Harbaugh sweepstakes. The question is now this. Just how cold blooded a group of sausage makers are up there in Ann Arbor? Will they pull the trigger on an eight or maybe even ten million dollar a year deal for Harbaugh? If they do no doubt Mal Moore scrambles to make sure the Mighty Satan stays at Bama and stays the highest paid coach in the college game. That would then put an immense amount of pressure on Georgia to break a brother off or settle for a replacement that is unproven when replacing Richt next year.

Of course Harbaugh could just be NFL bound no matter what. In that case the question is who is Meechigan's second choice. Is it Hoke? Or does Meechigan dare to buck the tide and ride the lightening's eye? Do they punch a ticket to ride on the Crazy Train? Do they hire Les Miles There is some question as to if Michigan did or didn't offer Lester three years ago. Things are different now and Lester could be looking to jump ship. Despite winning ten games this year LSU is still not overly excited to have Miles at the helm. Going to Michigan would mean that Miles will get a three year grace period and probably an additional two years considering the over-haul of the roster that will be necessary to replace Rich-Rod's spread option attack.

Should Les be Big Twelvine bound LSU will be in the market for a new Head Coach.

A school with a huge HS talent pool, in the SEC, totally devoted to the football program, and with seemingly endless money. Basically Georgia but with an iron grip on their HS talent. Coach Patterson.....LSU is on line one.
