Michigan is coming off its best season since the Fab Five days on the early-to-mid 90s, and with that has come added criticism and praise.

Well Wolverine assistant coach Bacari Alexander, fresh off a Twitter hiatus, decided to pile on the praise on Monday, tweeting out progress reports to every player on the Michigan roster.

Here are a few gems that the serial-tweeting Alexander sent out.

Jon Horford is on track to@finish early as well. What I’m really excited about is he’s been healthy all spring and summer. #staytuned

It’s an interesting subject to learn that Horford is “on track to finish early”. One would assume that means his degree program (what else would it mean?). Horford averaged 2.7 points and 2.2 rebounds in 8.8 minutes per game last season. He missed seven games due to injury.

Nik Stauskas is looking like a grown man physically. I wasn’t sure that he could looked so defined. His athleticism has spiked too. #yes

So long as he keeps that jumper, right?

Max Beifeldt has really slimmed his frame and we’re not sure If he can be called the “Moose” anymore. Suggestions?? #bekind — Bacari Alexander (@bacari34) July 8, 2013

Alexander also made sure to let fans know that the nucleus of the Michigan coaching staff doesn’t plan on going anywhere in the near future.

No need to fret, our coaching staff will be around for seasons to come! #paradiseiswhereiam
