...might elicit a follow-up question from the reporter. "Coach H... are you calling Ohio State a bunch of perpetual numbskulls?"

His use of the personal pronoun suggests a personal regret, not a collective team regret. I think he will also regret posting that tweet, too.

From the link:
Davis, an Alabama native, is a big fan of Jim Harbaugh and RB coach Tyrone Wheatley. Here’s what he told Donohue:
“Coach [Jim] Harbaugh has been in the NFL and I think he’s a great leader. I know [running backs coach] Tyrone Wheatley really well too,” Davis said.
The five-star says he also has heard good things about the Wolverines from Michigan targets Rashan Gary, Kareem Walker and Devin Bush.

|1 week 2 days ago||Interesting analysis...||
...from BlackShoeDiaries has Michigan winning 28-17.
"While the intangibles are in Penn State's favor, it probably won't be enough to send off the seniors with a victory.
The deciding match-up for this game to me is Michigan's ferocious defensive line against Penn State's offensive line, which is still very much a work in progress. Even with the Wolverines banged up up front, Penn State will still likely struggle to open up running lanes for Barkley and give Hackenberg the time he needs to set his feet and be effective. This means Michigan likely controls the game from beginning to end, with Penn State putting together enough plays here and there to keep it interesting."

I have a WMU MBA and am glad Matt ended up at the only other good school in the state!

"After further review, the call on the field of a Lions win has been reversed."

...I think the stickers should be 1/3 the size they are now. The current stickers are just horsey-looking monstrocities. Nasty.
It's all subjective, but my eye would prefer something more like this:

...everything's relative. Market forces will dictate price. For instance, the market might price a pair of used panties from this person at a similar (or higher) price:

...the stickers were waaaay too large. 1/3 to 1/2 that size would be better. Not a huge fan of the stickers any way you present them. Stickers muddy up the best looking helmet in football.

...but I was once stopped late at night and was scared half to death to blow into the breathalyzer because I had just finished drinking several vodka tonics about an hour earlier. Long story short, I knew my speech was slurred and had some difficulty doing the physical sobriety tests. (Plus it was 2AM and I was tired.) I ended up only blowing a .04 and was released without incident. I thought for sure I would be close to the limit based on how I felt, which was mildly impaired.
The bottom line: Based on how I felt at .04, I can see that it would be very challenging to operate a car at .08! Plus, taking into account the fatigue factor -- because most of this happens late at night -- it would be even more challenging.

...but this was my first thought, particularly because of last year's episode of Coach Kill having seizures before the Michigan game.
Minnesota will pull out all the stops to get the jug for Coach K. This game more than any other.
The bar has been raised, IMHO.
That said, best to Coach K and his family. Life is far too short. (I know this personally. I lost my 47-year-old wife to cancer 5 years ago.)

...distance-wise may be pretty close (really hard to tell given the multiple curved angles at the start of the run). What's challenging is trying to factor a more gradual acceleration curve based on the fact that he's not trying to go full speed during the first 20 or 30 yards of his run. He's reading and setting up his lines vis-a-vis his blocking.
Had he gone all out covering that distance, he probably could have shaved close to a second, possibly more.
