Technology is a major aspect of today’s college football. Players use iPads to watch game film, coaches use Twitter and other social media platforms to connect with recruits, everyone is in constant communication via cellphones, etc.
Today, Michigan defensive coordinator Greg Mattison attempted to connect with one of his best players, senior defensive end Frank Clark. He tried to use FaceTime, a video calling application for iPhones. It didn’t go well.

Apparently, the technology aspect of college football hasn’t quite been hammered home at the University of Michigan. Mattison is a 64-year-old man, though, so he should at least receive some credit for attempting to get with the times.
