alternate headline: man does job
Harbaugh’s team picked up some ground yesterday. They now stand in the top half of the field at -7. They need to pick up about 5 strokes on the field to get into the top 25 and make the cut. That may be a long shot, but is not bad, considering that Harbaugh’s pro partner continued his awful play (+7 for the tourney; only 8 of 156 players are worse).
The Harbaugh team was to tee off at Pebble Beach today at 11.22 am ET. But the fog has caused a 30 minute delay. That may help our chances to get TV coverage of him when CBS broadcasts from 3-6pm. But the pros in his group are not doing well, so CBS may not show much. A better bet with more extended coverage will be to watch the free streaming coverage of holes 10 and 17. He should hit the 10th at about 2pm ET (around the same time as the start of UM-Purdue BB) .

Mario Ojemudia was staying at my hotel in California this week. I got the opposite of the "Death Stare" when I said "Go Blue!" after recognizing him. He said he was bummed about missing "the best year in my career" due to injury. Hopefully he has a long, successful career in the NFL.
SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey is from New York.
He graduated from the State University of New York College @ Cortland
His masters degree in Education is from Syracuse University.
He was the Director of Intramural Sports at Utica College (NY).
He originally moved to the south to become Director of Compliance at Northwestern State University. He also coached the Golf Team there (two years).
He was commissioner of the Southland Conference before joining the SEC in 2002.
He likes to run marathons.
He is currently the chairman of the NCAA's Division I Committee on Infractions.
Sankey bolted onto the MGOBLOG in a jetstream fashion for his anti-opinions of the IMG Camp (and future camps like it for a variety of developing reasons). His background (above) might be helpful to those of you who did not know him last week at this time.
According the CBSSports.com, "Sankey does not want to dive into a war of words with Michigan's coach."
"I'm not going to reduce what is an important convesation to some childhood use of Twitter,"
he said. "This is an important issue".
Per the article, Chuck already has a job lined up for life after football with ESPN on SUnday NFL Countdown. And in my opinion a huge upgrade over Keyshawn.
Per McIntyre, Woodson will join the current cast of Chris Berman, Tom Jackson, Mike Ditka, and Cris Carter. However, many in the industry expect the lineup to last only one year, with even more changes coming in 2017 as the network tries to unload bloated salaries and simultaneously skew younger.
Hopefully Carter is on of the others that is asked to move on after next season. He's also brutal.
A few days ago, I had never heard of Greg Sankey. Now he's my favorite guy in the world. This morning, he officially asked the NCAA to make Jim Harbaugh stop.
