In an explosive development I just tweeted on my twitter, the Cohn Zohn has learned exclusively that Stanford University has offered to change its name to Harbaugh University if Jim Harbaugh agrees to remain as head coach.

And that’s not all.

If Harbaugh stays, Stanford will throw in a new football-only dining facility featuring chefs from around the world. They will call this facility Harbaugh Hall.

And that’s not all.

If Harbaugh stays, Stanford will drop the nickname Cardinal for its football team. From now on the team will be called Harbaugh.

And that’s not all.

If Harbaugh stays, the mayor of Palo Alto has agreed to change the name of that exclusive hamlet to Harbaugh and the surrounding area will be known as Harbaugh Hills.

It is not known if California also will change its name to Harbaugh. Governor Brown is considering it. I’ve heard he’s not a football fan and that may gum up the works.

    What are you hearing as far as the a new Raiders coach?
    How are you feeling about the Lacob era Warriors so far?
    How bout Keith Smart as a head coach? Good, bad? No opinion?

    Lowell, I know you have a cultured sense of humor but so far this article/thread/post as zero posters – lol – ‘cept me.

    I get the point of this, but one or two references would have sufficed – IMO.

    Professor Lowell,

    Just to translate the latest annoying version of English language vernacular: LMAO = Laughing My Ass Off, and IMO = In my opinion. Ironically the latter, in it’s attempt at brevity, is redundant since it’s quite obviously the speakers opinion as they are writing it.

    You got to give it to Jed, he got it done without raising his offer, 5yr/25mil. Bring on the Harbaugh era!

    I’m on board, submitting papers to change my surname to Harbaugh, and will name my firstborn Harbaugh, regardless of gender. Maybe second child as well, just to drive home the point. I’ll call one “Harb” and the other “HarHar”.

    He went to the 49ers as Stanford “disrespected him” by only offering to rename East Palo Alto to East Harbaugh.
