The five things he learned at practice today. This may have been covered already in the Twitter thread, but that one is getting a little full.
TL:DR - Rudock starts at Utah, OL is has improved, secondary could be good, pass rush is meh, uses the word "stud" in regards to RB's.
In a lot of ways I feel like this offseason has been a time machine. Almost all of the things we hated about Michigan football have been fixed, as if someone turned back the clock to the glory days. Of course, one thing is still missing: wins.
This wallpaper is meant to harken back those days. Hopefully the wins come too. Enjoy.

Jeezus, the negative media barrage on York-Baalke in SF just seems endless.
And the 2015 season hasn't even started yet.
But I’ve said this from last season: When York and his lieutenants began the whisper campaign to get rid of Jim Harbaugh a full year before they ended up firing him, that entire escapade–16 games of it–knocked the entire franchise off of its bearings.
York had to know that plotting against his very successful coach FOR A FULL SEASON wasn’t healthy, didn’t he? There were going to be unforeseeable complications and problems.
Every team has to deal with problems and tough personalities and the regular turmoil and atrophy of an NFL season.
Important point: It’s not at all probable that Harbaugh, in a normal, healthy franchise situation, would’ve lasted much longer than 4 seasons anyway.
But when you attack your own good coach, then deny you’re doing it, then fire him anyway, then deny you fired him by calling it a “mutual parting” and when everybody understands that’s a non-truth… you set yourself up for incredible instability.
This hasn't been posted! Enjoy your Harbaugh story for the day!
A friend whose son was recruited by Harbaugh to go to Stanford told me the night Harbaugh came to the house to sit down with the family the father(my friend) and mother were on the way out the door to the hospital to deliver their 7th child and had no baby sitter. Coach said " I'll handle it", prepared dinner for the kids , tucked them in , and cleaned up the house. The father returned at 11PM, sat down with his son and Coach Harbaugh and sealed the deal. The kid was All American at Stanford and now plays for the Redskins. There is a real man under that hard exterior.
Is there anything this coach cannot do?
I have been working on this video for a few months now and am pretty excited with the result. The song (A Poor Man's Memory by Explosions in the Sky) inspired the creation of this video. Enjoy!
From Angelique at the Detroit News. The former AD who shall not be named has saved the AD quite a bit of money by getting a job tending to a giraffe.
Michigan interim athletic director Jim Hackett said what he told the UM Regents in May would be a nearly $8 million budget deficit will be significantly lower than expected.
Jim (has been) up in his room (in Chicago) writing practice plans. He never stops. I don't think he sleeps."
