The XFL will begin its first season for the second time on February 1.

There’s no Detroit team, so if you’re like me and choose which teams to root for based on which former Wolverines play for them, this might help:

D.C. Defenders

  • Head coach Pep Hamilton
  • S Tyree Kinnel
  • OL Logan Tuley-Tillman

Houston Roughnecks

  • OL Juwann Bushell-Beatty

Seattle Dragons

  • OG William Campbell
  • CB Jeremy Clark
  • CB Channing Stribling

Tampa Bay Vipers

  • RB De’Veon Smith

Ex-Wolverine Updates: Coaches, Summer 2019

If you want to help out TTB, please use the Amazon links here to do your shopping (LINK):

I do Ex-Wolverine Updates throughout the season, but I generally don’t include former coaches. In this case I have listed every Michigan coach over the past twenty years that is still in the game (for example, I think Steve Szabo, Stan Parrish, Bobby Morrison, Greg Robinson, etc. are retired permanently). There’s no way to keep track of every former Michigan player toiling away as a high school assistant coach or D-III strength and conditioning guy, but if you have any additions to the list, please let me know. I’m sure I’ve missed a few guys who are coaching or graduate assistant-ing.

Nightly Roundup: February 13, 2019

Even though Pep Hamilton is leaving Michigan for an XFL job, Michigan is still paying him through this June (LINK).

Former San Diego State and Michigan head coach Brady Hoke is headed back to San Diego State . . . as the defensive line coach (LINK). Yes, it’s a bit rough to go from being the head coach of the all-time winningest program in the country to defensive line coach of Marshall Faulk University. But I still like the guy, and I respect the fact that the guy just likes to coach. Sometimes I think about how long I’m going to coach, and I can see myself getting older and still wanting to be involved in the game, even if it’s at a lower level.

New Michigan quarterbacks coach Ben McDaniels is making decent money (LINK).

Windy City Blue’s favorite writer talks about the status of the interior offensive line for 2019 (LINK).

I’ll be honest: I don’t know why all of these plays below are called “smart,” but they’re fun nonetheless.

Outback Bowl: South Carolina 26, Michigan 19

Take a deep breath. Take a deep breath. It’s hard after that game not to be very frustrated with the state of Michigan football, but I’ll say the same thing I said toward the end of the regular season: This was not going to be a great season from the beginning. Michigan lost almost everyone on defense from 2016, lost a bunch of production on offense, and lost three offensive line starters. They also didn’t get back their starting LT who got injured from last year, got their best WR hurt, and lost their starting four games into the year. If you’re an objective observer, you can probably admit that those are some huge, huge hurdles to overcome.

Hit the jump for the rest of the game discussion.
