Jim Harbaugh wants more flexibility for college football players for the NFL Draft…is it time to change up some rules?

-Harbaugh wrote an open letter on Thursday that said he wants college players to be able to enter their name in the Draft whenever they’re ready to go—not having to wait the current 3 years before coming draft-eligible. He cites there are many “early bloomers” who are capable of competing in the NFL at a younger age rather than have to wait 3 years after high school

-Harbaugh also said (and was agreed to by BTN’s Gerry Dinardo) that players who leave early for the Draft but aren’t selected should be able to return to their school to play right away. Thoughts?

What If Wednesday: What if Jim Harbaugh doesn’t get it done at Michigan?

-Jake was doing some research yesterday and learned that Michigan has had 28 players drafted over the past 4 years (5 first rounders); which has equated to an 0-4 bowl record and no division titles

-Ohio State isn’t leaving the top, likely. Is Harbaugh at his ceiling or does he still have potential to get over the hump? He hasn’t defeated the Buckeyes yet, and there have been some blowouts against him when facing them. Is long-term patience the key for Michigan to eventually get over the hump or not?

Will we ever see a run of dominance in the Big Ten like we saw with Urban Meyer?

-And if so, could Frost be the one to achieve it as what Tim Brando described as a ‘transformational coach’?

-It’s hard to ever have that kind of success anywhere. Meyer was 83-9 at Ohio State, and 54-4 in B1G conference games. Absolutely unheard of. If Nebraska had a stretch like that again, we’d be losing our minds. But can Harbaugh ever get over the hump and be that kind of elite, dominant coach?
