They hired a former military guy to steal signs from future opponents. He broke a lot of NCAA rules in the process. They have dominated pretty much everyone since.

My favorite part of that story is how he decided to go to the Naval Academy. 

Quote
Stalions chose to attend the Naval Academy despite, he said, getting into Michigan, where both his parents attended. An article awarding him Coach of the Month honors from an organization called Soldiers to Sidelines said Stalions chose the Naval Academy because famous coaches from Bo Schembechler to Bill Belichick had either served in the military or had strong connections to the academies.

“I’ve grown up my entire life with a vision to coach football at Michigan,” Stalions told the publication.

So he wants to coach at Michigan.  Great.  Time for college.  Should I go to Michigan?  No.  That's what an idiot would do.  Instead I'll join go to the Naval Academy (?!).  FWIW, neither Schembechler nor Belichick ever served in the military.  Best I can tell is that Schembechler was an assistant at Army for like, a second, and Belichick's dad was in the Navy.

plus it isn't like the Naval Academy is a safety school or something. It's really hard to get admitted!

Yes!  But if you want to be a football coach at a specific school that you got admitted to, you should just go there!

None of this would have happened if they kept making the NCAA football game. Dude would be 100+ years into his Michigan dynasty mode instead of writing a manifesto.

This is kinda starting to feel like the alleged Ok State recruitment ‘Orange Girls’ or whatever the hell that was.

I don’t get why sign stealing is illegal. As a travel ball first base coach and father of an Astros fan I can tell you we steal the living crap out of signs. These 10U catchers have no clue how to load a proper signal stance.

Sign stealing isn't illegal. Everyone does it. You just can use electronic recording devices to do it or send someone associated with the program to a game you aren't playing in to do it. If the NCAA doesn't hammer Michigan I imagine this will just become the new normal.

If what Michigan did is against the rules, it's "cheating," imo.  And I think this is more "cheating" than paying players or basically any of the other NCAA violations I can think of are.

It's also a ginormous advantage for the big schools who can send these wannabe's around the country to get the signs and then sit around with other "analysts" and putting together their own "call sheets" that they feed live and in game to the coordinators to make the appropriate calls.

This all takes A LOT of man hours.  there's a reason that the biggest best schools pay 30-50 "analysts"

Also it's incredibly blatant and it seems pretty clear the entire staff was in on it. I think Harbaugh is going to either have to admit he lied about knowing or admit he has zero control over what happens in his program.

This is where "lack of institutional control" comes in or used to

I will be absolutely amazed if Jim Harbaugh is still coaching next week.

Harbaugh's Dr. Evil board meeting where each member of the staff was assigned to a different nefarious task.
