Thought we could link the tweets from today in one topic. Here are some, there are more in the thread



BTN Bus Tour Stop number 8 #Wolverines - Headed to morning practice - will be second East team we've seen - been to all West except Purdue

No real surprises on OL - looked like Cole, Braden, Glasgow, Kals, Magnuson. Drevno singled Blake Bars out as having had good camp

WR looks to be about what it was a year ago - issue will be whether a deep threat can emerge. Better OL play could obviously help there

I'd be surprised if Grant Perry doesn't contribute some at WR. Tough to tell on Brian Cole - kind of up and down

Dressed in his uniform of a blue “M” cap, long-sleeve shirt and—what else?—khakis, Harbaugh spent most of time with QBs. Always instructing.

A very business-like practice at Michigan today. No music blared. A classroom environment with lots of teaching. Nobody walked or lingered.

PR looks like it'll be Peppers and Chesson. Peppers looked great overall today and DJ Durkin said he's had an outstanding camp

PK remains up in the air - still doesn't look like an area of strength. Aussie P Blake O'Neill got off some boomers - impressive

BTN Bus Tour #Wolverines I would not be surprised if both QB played in opener against Utah. Game play sometimes is best way to decide

@CoachJim4UM spent a great deal of practice time on special teams.#Alwaysagreatidea

@Lofter4 that’s an answer that has to stay on the [email protected]

Seriously ...a few years ago we had some new IT person firewall

Twenty minutes later it was no longer firewalled because the CEO liked to visit the site himself. That was awesome though Twitter, FB, Hotmail, GMail, etc are all blocked.

But I have a cell phone ...a Smart Phone, in fact, so ......

I can't access email, twitter, facebook or any social media at work.  Its not about procrastination, its more about security of sensitive work documents and information.  They want to be able to keep track of all of that and make it harder for information to be sent around.  

So if I do want to see something on twitter I just go on my phone, but embedding the tweets saves me a step, so thanks to those who do lol.

For most companies, it's silly policy. However, I once worked on a consulting assignment with a defense contractor. They are super-strict on technology. You have to check your phones, laptop, and you can pretty much bring in paper and pencils, and then they check everything on your person when you leave. So no twitter or FB or anything else online. It's pretty crazy.

nice to say about us?  Maybe it's just my paranoia but I sense an anti-Michigan bias at the BTN.  It seems like every time they play a "whatever school classic" game it's that team beating Michigan.  Do Maryland and Rutgers really have no better victories to show than v's a 5-7 Michigan team?

Also, it would be nice for them to show some actual classic games.  And by classic I mean games played before the BTN was created.  I'm pretty sure some Michigan games from 1969-2006 would get decent ratings.
