Site News: Post-Season 2022

I would just like to take a moment to thank all of you for sticking around through the thick and thin – particularly thin – content so far this season. My high school football team’s season disappointingly ended this past weekend, but on a personal and professional level, this was one of the most time-consuming seasons I’ve experienced.

I won’t go into all the reasons that it was difficult, but I feel like I learned a lot and grew as both a person and coach. I encountered things this season that I’ve never come across as a coach, and I value new experiences greatly.

My game plan going back years and years is to post new content on a daily basis, and unfortunately, I was not able to live up to that standard throughout this season. There have been days/nights where I haven’t had time to write and still only got four or five hours of sleep. But again, I’m a better person for what has happened this fall. Going forward into our off-season – and the remainder of Michigan’s season – I hope to once again get back to more frequent and consistent content.

Thanks again for reading! Go Blue!

Site News: Thank You!

I want to say thank you to all who donated via Paypal over the past week or so! I was amazed at the response. I thought it might take a few months to make it happen, and I was even slightly worried that we wouldn’t be able to pull it off this year. I wanted to hit $3,400 and we made it to about $3,450 as of today.

So thank you to the following people (first names only):

  • Ashley

My next step will be to take it to people more technically advanced than me who can make the thingamajiggers work. It won’t be fixed overnight, but we’ll get the process started.

Thank you!

Site News: TTB Needs Your Help

Good morning, faithful TTB readers! It’s been a while since I’ve posted much about news regarding the site, because everything since 2020 has been weird and we’ve all gone through some stuff.

However, the time has come to open up a little bit about TTB. As you all have figured out now, I’ve mostly been mirroring content between the WordPress site and the Blogger/Blogspot site. That’s because the Renovatio theme on WordPress went kaput in a few areas, including supporting comments. And I like the comments (it would be boring to post and not discuss with readers), so in order to get discussion, my solution has just been to post all/most content on both sites. It’s a little time consuming but mostly just consists of copying/pasting, so that’s not a big deal.


The big deal is declining ad revenue. It has been an issue for a few years and has finally come to a head. In short, I’m not making enough money on TTB to make it viable. For the first time in the blog’s history, I lost money on the endeavor in 2021 when I filed my taxes.

I literally paid to bring you (almost) daily content in 2021. The game reviews, the recruiting info, the countdown, etc. all cost me money.

Hit the jump for more.
