Tigers will keep Benoit as closer, use Veras along with Smyly in the 7th and 8th innings.

If he tweeted that after the thing about the 49ers being 7-4, he has since deleted that, as well. I couldn't find it.

Maybe he didn't like how he phrased his response. It's not easy when people are picking apart every single word used in 140 character bursts, and looking for positive signals or something that suggests a lack of credibility.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||I suggested to him that the||
I suggested to him that the 49ers would have been 7-4 at the time of these alleged initial discussions. He responded that it might explain why interest was low at that point. I responded again that it would have been an distraction (with Harbaugh reasonably focused on making the playoffs). He deleted his response to me. I'm not sure why. I always find that odd.

Brian has cited him in some of the coaching search updates. Moss has been around a long time. He has some sources. This isn't totally random internet rumormongering.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||I think he first tweeted that||
I think he first tweeted that day that the press conference would be held and that Brandon would be fired. It beat everyone else. It wasn't a random guess. And, he's not really in that business, from what I can tell.
That said, I'm not the guy who you mock for buying every internet rumor that comes along. I totally get the skepticism. And, I don't care what you all believe. I'm just saying that the salt that goes with this report in particular should probably be of the grain and not the boulder variety.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||I'm not saying he's right||
I'm not saying he's right about this, but I think he had Brandon's firing before anyone else. Brian might vouch for that.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||I think you are reading too||
I think you are reading too much into it. Read the next sentence after he mentioned bowl games:
"They may be in bowl games. They may be…you know, wherever they are in their status..."
I don't think you can make any judgment at all about a pool of candidats limited to college coaches based on that statement.
|31 weeks 17 hours ago||This probably wasn't intended||
This probably wasn't intended to be a diary, but I'll just point out that it seems unlikely to me that Harbaugh would be stupid enough to go to Miami given the acrimony in that front office. Have you read the backstory on Aponte? It doesn't sound like she's going anywhere, and if that's true, Harbaugh would be jumping from one bad situation to another. I'm not sure even Ross's money could paper that over.

Great. Well, then the problem was either provider-specific (which AT&T denied) or it was an issue in certain pockets of the city.
|32 weeks 17 hours ago||There was a problem with the||
There was a problem with the broadcast in the Atlanta area (and possibly others). They screwed up the regional coverage such that ABC and ESPN2 were both showing Texas A&M vs. SMU. This continued until some point in the 3rd quarter when the complaints must have finally bubbled up to the people who fix these sorts of things. At that point, the UM game became available on ESPN2.

Year 3 under Rodriguez is identical to Year 3 under Hoke. We have not improved. Also, we could easily be 4-7 right now. Some of those wins are functional losses. But tell me more about how great things are...

It looks like Benoit will continue to close (from Danny Knobler on Twitter - I can't embed for some reason):

I'm not certain he's going to close, but it will be nice to have some more help with late innings.

I'm guessing "DB" isn't "wondering what happened to Beilein and the program in such a short time frame" because Dave Brandon is smart enough not to evaluate the status of a major program by only looking at a three week period in which nothing that could be construed by any reasonable person as "negativity breed[ing] negativity" took place.

Raoul: The article doesn't say anything about where McGary places Duke among the final six. It simply says McGary's parents favor Duke.

No, I'm well aware of the last four years, thanks. As I said above, I just think this is overkill. I don't think that's that controversial of an opinion.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||For what reason do they need||
For what reason do they need to travel around the country and "get the former players pumped up?" I'm not being a smartass. I really don't see why it's necessary. I'm not saying they need to spend all of their time watching film like has been suggested above.

But he has a lot of former players in his phone...or whatever...

I don't understand why this is necessary or a valuable use of the coaches' time. I understand the perceived need to "mend fences" or whatever, but if this is true, it seems to be overkill.

What was the state of "the tradition" when RR came in, or did you miss that part of the post in your rush to cryptically name drop?

Butler lost two starters and they were pretty important. Gordon Heyward was their best player and a lottery pick in last year's NBA draft. Willie Veasley (who now plays in Japan) was a critical defender that, like Heyward, could guard almost anyone. Their struggles early this season were almost entirely related to defense. They've found a way to make up for those losses.
