How badly would Michigan fans like to see former Wolverines quarterback Jim Harbaugh replace Brady Hoke as its coach this winter?
Badly enough, for one of them anyway, to vote for Harbaugh as governor of Michigan Tuesday.
It wasn't the only write-in candidate that drew some attention in football circles Tuesday. Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper got a vote for Alabama governor, as well. But unlike the Cooper vote, this one was more of a statement on the state of the Wolverines as a program.
Hoke's ouster after the season, of course, is as likely as any pending coaching change in the college game. It's all the more certain after the exit of athletic director Dave Brandon last week, although with five losses already and a sixth loss to rival Ohio State looking like a lock, Brandon would have been in no position to save Hoke, anyway.
