Jim Tomsula, the man who campaigned for and ultimately received Jim Harbaugh's head coaching job with the San Francisco 49ers, was fired on Sunday.
Coach, your thoughts?
Devin Funchess continues to impress in the NFL, passing the 100-yard mark and scoring a hard-fought touchdown for the Panthers as they locked up the NFC's top playoff seed against Tampa Bay.
Michigan remains at #6 in Bill Connelly's updated S&P+ rankings, which is derived from play-by-play data, adjusts for strength of opponent, and eliminates garbage-time drives. After Michigan's 41-7 romp over Florida in the Citrus Bowl, there was a chance that U-M could move into the top five, but, with Ohio State and Ole Miss winning their bowls comfortably, it wasn't to be. And, with only the national championship game between the top two S&P+ teams (#1 Alabama and #2 Clemson) left to be played, there shouldn't be any movement below them.
All in all, though, Michigan improved from #45 in S&P+ in 2014 to #6 in 2015. #TheHarbaughEffect

LeVert is listed as day to day.
The stars tend to come out when Jim Harbaugh is involved.
Wrestling legend Ric Flair took to Twitter and congratulated Harbaugh and the Wolverines on their Citrus Bowl win on Friday afternoon.
Perhaps we are one step closer to Flair and Wrestlemania coming to the Big House? Probably not, but a guy can dream.
