Perhaps he tweeted at Thomas Wilcher meaning to tweet at Thomas Wilcher - there's a subtle but very important difference, you see. It's kind of like if your name is spelled "Raymond Luxury-Yacht" but is pronounced "Throatwobbler Mangrove". Easy mistake to make, right?

There are a few college coaches that have moved in this direction too actually. When Chris Ash was still the DC at Ohio State, I think he actually talked Urban into adopting it as well, and they did so with some success when it came to overall performance as well as safety. I think the Atlanta Falcons are also huge believers in this approach too, and as I recall, the Seahawks and Falcons have the lowest concussion rates in the league.
|6 hours 58 min ago||Off Today...||
We get today off, so I am still sort of basking in the post-wakeup haze....as I woke up only about a half hour ago. It just rare for me to be able to get up at 8 AM on a Monday, so I am enjoying that little bit of the day first, also being in no hurry to eat breakfast. I'll probably go for a nice run later, and it won't be because I am running from a meeting.

Packer Win! Lions fate ...

They switched providers, you see....
|23 hours 34 min ago||If I Had To Guess...||
Well, as a Lions fan, I could do with Dallas and Green Bay going down to asteroid, but since this is not a realistic possibility, I will go with Dallas in that game. As for Kansas City and Pittsburgh, I think the Steelers can pull that one out on the road, although I expect that one to be very close.

I freely admit to standing up and clapping when I saw that highlight - Grayson Allen pretty much deserves being the traget of some good old-fashioned in-game retribution just to remind him that you can't be a douche with impunity in any sport, let alone basketball. Hopefully, that shuts him up for a while.
|1 day 15 hours ago||It Is Interesting...||
I could be wrong, but Tom Brady might now be the career leader now in playoff games - I haven't looked at the stat in a while, but I think he has passed the likes of Jerry Rice, Peyton Manning, D.D. Lewis and yes, even Adam Vinatieri. That's a pretty impressive feat as well, just ot be in that many postseason games.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Three Pointers...||
At last report, this is more or less true statistically as well - whereas Michigan's own overall percentage hovers around 40% and it in the upper fifth of Division I basketball, we give up about 48% on threes, which is #348, so within earshot of the basement for defending threes. It rolls into the opponent eFG% of 53%, which is #259 in Division I.

RB Coach Wheatley leaving for Jaguars position [REPORTEDLY]
We'll skip this and run with the report about it being premature until it is actually, well, mature. You get the idea.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Where I Am...||
That's sort of where I am at - I saw that tweet and now I am searching for an additional source for the report that he's heading to Jacksonville and not finding it. If someone can find a confirming report, feel free to post it, but I couldn't. It is entirely possible that I am looking in the wrong places, but I don't think I am.

Truth or hyperbole?
|1 day 20 hours ago||You Know...||
We own the redundant feed to the building (main feed is from Michigan's own power plant) and we're supposed to be out of there in April, I believe.
I will have to get down there one more time before then, I think, just to take one more walk around that portion of South Campus.
|2 days 9 min ago||Right Now...||
Michigan hovering around 62-63% for eFG% right now, which is better than most games recently. Need to keep that pace, of course, because Nebraska isn't too far behind that statistic right now.
If nothing else, at least the Cornhuskers aren't spectacular at rebounding either.
|2 days 3 hours ago||This Is True...||
Mine are 10 and 9 and.....yes, this is true. You do find yourself doing things you wouldn't normally do and going places you wouldn't normally go because of the fallout from statements like, "You two need to get off your you-know-what and do something, and here's what we're doing...."
|2 days 5 hours ago||Very Cool Indeed...||
I'll have to go back and find some of my letters to the editor, and there were several of those, during my time on campus. I think the first warning sign that I was eventually going to end up modding this blog is that even back then I was finding means to make people hate what I had to say, in fact. It was a perfect fit, but I simply wasn't aware of it at the time.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Does That Mean...||
Does that mean we're going to see a resurgence of "Oakland is still in play" jokes, or worse, does it mean Adam Schefter will write an article with a headline like "SEE, YOU PEOPLE DIDN'T LISTEN, BUT I TOLD YOU THAT LAS VEGAS IS STILL IN PLAY"?
|2 days 5 hours ago||Thanks Again...||
I actually sent the link to known Michigan fans and alums at work yesterday, so hopefully ChadTough gets another boost from that as well.
Thanks again for the daily reminder and hopefully we can pull off a victory for this cause.

Now that I see people like Lester who are my age.....in some cases younger.....getting positions like this at various levels, it leads me to ask a question that has been on my mind lately - what DIDN'T I do in my life that I couldn't break into sports as something other than a second-rate player?
Seems like an anticlimactic follow-up to Fleck, but we shall see, I guess.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Interesting Development...||
Smith, who has been Ohio State's AD since 2005, knows a thing or two about selection committees as he previously spent five seasons on the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Committee and served as its chair in 2010-11.
It's still alright if we can get Smith to agree to recuse himself when they are talking about football, right? I mean, if he can get the organizational hierarchy backwards, surely he can be made to agree to this.
|3 days 30 min ago||Come On Now...||
Oh, come on now. Bill Belichick played center for little old Wesleyan University in Connecticut and he is now a Sith Lord. In part, it takes the drive to develop your skills and to get a broad experience in the sport - the rest is simply replacing Drew Bledsoe with Tom Brady due to an injury.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Wait A Second...||
Wait a second, we had this debate and I missed it?
I am kind of pissed about that honestly. I have thoughts about this one.
All the same, it would be interesting to see if LTT transferred back to Michigan - this is just my own interepretation here, but I would think that Harbaugh would take him back and give him another shot.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Well, It's Friday...||
....but not just any Friday, of course.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Surely...||
Surely there is something that leads to to this conclusion other than no reading and possibly a generous helping of alcohol. Do expand on this thought.
The takes are apparently super hot in the world of potential transfers from and to Michigan as well.

Here's a view of Greenie milking the cow, as the OP mentions....

Very nice hire indeed. Liked the "On The Mic" segment.
|4 days 1 hour ago||2010...||
I think it was 2010, if we're going by overall record - they were 6-7 thanks to a loss in the Liberty Bowl, if I remember correctly. Still, they finished 3rd in the SEC East even at that, which is not generally difficult to do most years given your divisional competition.
|4 days 5 hours ago||Thanks...||
I just wanted to say thanks to the OP for posting this each day. I was going to try to remind myself to just bump threads, but January is a bad time for me and what I do and you see how well reminders and me work now anyway.
Anyway, excellent work keep the community updated here.
|4 days 5 hours ago||On The Fence Now...||
I sit on the fence with this right now - I am pretty frustrated with this start to conference play and the seeming lack of on-court leadership that seems to dog the team currently. That being said, if they can do well enough in the next 5-6 games, they may be able to salvage something, in my view. What that something might be is debatable, but they would be in an infinitely better position than the one they seem to be barreling towards at the moment.
If we finish this season as flat as we look now, I will probably join the crowd that wants to see change - I don't come by those decisions easily, but it would be time then, in my view.

Wheatley to WMU (apparently not yet confirmed)
We've already got a thread about Wheatley interviewing in Kalamazoo.
