If I had to venture a guess, he already has people at Michigan who are sick of his shit.

The guy did nothing but win in San Francisco and they couldn't wait to get rid of him. Every indication is he's very petty and vindictive. His tweets and comments are thick with it.

Imagine when he's mixed long term with the academics and administrators in Ann Arbor.

I think that he burns out in 5 years or less.

Question...is Lake Osceola saltwater or brackish? I remember being by the music building in the early 90s looking down at it and I swear I saw several barracuda floating near the surface. There was also a time that a manatee apparently turned up in there.

It is brackish, mainly fresh water to start but also connected to Biscayne Bay via the Coral Gables Waterway that runs through the area and much of Coral Gables.

That means almost all species of fresh and salt water fish could be found in the lake, barracudas included. Manatees would be rare due to access through canals and culverts they would have to pass through to get there, but maybe possible. It is also very possible for there have been gators and/or crocks in the lake at any given time but also not common.

I could give you a tour of Coral Gables that would blow your mind and make your head spin, including the location of the UM President's house which I have been to many times. It would cost you $20 of course but it would be the BEST $20 you ever spent.

At some point Jim Harbaugh's results have to supersede his rhetoric.

Exactly.

His routine will wear real thin if he doesn't accomplish major things in the next few years.

Didn't dad Bush get a job at U of Mich?

Don't know if he's allowed to officially recruit but Devin Bush is very connected down here. He was a nice pick up.

CaneRock

I just want him out of Florida.

Don't think that's happening anytime soon. Only 1 recruit from their 16' recruiting class is from Michigan.

Let him have Jersey. I just want him out of Florida. Saban is bad enough.

Also, hit me up when he finally wins a ship. In anything.

I guess you have to go to such extremes when the state of MI is the equivalent of a tipped over porta potty

Jim Harbaugh up the Recruiting Game to a New Level

Harbaugh's ties to Paramus Catholic keep growing stronger, and that helps Michigan's recruiting.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has already laid pretty substantial groundwork at Paramus Catholic, the New Jersey school that produced top overall 2016 prospect and Wolverines commit Rashan Gary.

Harbaugh is giving the commencement speech to seniors at the school on Thursday, after he hosts a big satellite camp there on Wednesday.

Now Harbaugh's program will host Paramus Catholic on its own field. The Paladins will open their 2016 season with a game at Michigan Stadium on Sept. 2, which will bring a couple more blue-chip recruits right to Michigan's doorstep.

The Wolverines are recruiting four-star Paramus Catholic linebacker Drew Singleton and defensive tackle Corey Bolds for 2017, plus four-star quarterback Allan Walters for 2018.

They'll all get a nice, close look at the Big House, and it won't count as one of their five "official visits," even though they'll literally be using the same facilities as Michigan's players. In that sense, it's a genius maneuver by Harbaugh.

It's not unusual for high school teams to play games in college stadiums, but it's definitely uncommon for teams to cross state lines (or several state lines) to do it. ESPN noted that, beside Paramus Catholic and its St. Frances (Md.) opponent, 14 other teams were slated to play this year at the Big House, and all were Michigan schools.

Star Michigan defensive back Jabrill Peppers played at Paramus Catholic, too, and former head coach Chris Partridge is now on Harbaugh's staff. The Wolverines' connection to the school isn't an entirely new thing. It's not going away anytime soon.

Water moccasins can be found inland in Florida anywhere there's water, like lakes, canals, etc. So it wouldn't be a shock for there to be one there.

In reading that article, I learned stuff I never knew. Like I had no idea that it eventually connected to Biscayne Bay. That would explain the variable salinity and finding both fresh and salt water species.

TonyCane

CaneRock...I once saw what I presume was a water moccosin being dispatched by workers alongside the lake in the early 90s

TonyCane

Awesome...that solves a 23 year mystery for me then. Fairly certain that it was a group of large barracudas (I've seen alligator gar and these were different). Fascinated to read that two American crocodiles were living there a few years ago. Shouldn't those have been removed as a threat to students? Some of the walkways alongside the lake, especially by where the architecture building was at in the 90s were fairly close to the water.

be somewhat brackish. Here's an interesting article from the Miami Hurricane:

According to that article it is connected to biscayne bay, and does have barracuda!

Go Canes!

FYI the Appalachian State Game will be at High Noon on ESPN or ESPN2 on Saturday September 17th.

Water moccasins?

Lur-ker

I personally have never seen a cuda or an alligator gar there, I admit that I thought it was a nice feature but never thought that deeply about it when I was a student or afterwards when I've visited campus.

I DID know it was manmade and assumed it was fresh, but I suppose it could be somewhat brackish. Here's an interesting article from the Miami Hurricane:

http://www.themiamihurricane.com/2011/10/16/the-depths-of-lake-osceola/

Go Canes!

There are gar and snakeheads in those lakes now. Even freshwater tarpon.

Could have been any of those.

Don't ever remember hearing about cudas being in any brackish lakes.

^^^^I'm pretty sure it's freshwater, Soup would probably know better. You might of saw an alligator gar which might look like a barracuda.
