Everyone make sure to get Sunday's edition of the Detroit Free Press and check out the candidates box.

According to a reliable source, along with the early favorites like Billy Gillespie, Reggie Theus and John Beilein, is our favorite darkhorse: Rudolph Tomjanovich Jr.

Like we said, all we've wanted to do from the start is create a buzz for Rudy T. and have him considered as a candidate.

On top of that is a notebook on UM hoops that includes a shoutout to hirerudyt.blogspot.com:

U-M blog pleads for Rudy T.

The stated mission of hirerudyt.blogspot.com is to "make Michigan basketball relevant again" by hiring U-M alumnus and Hamtramck native Rudy Tomjanovich as the Wolverines' next basketball coach.

The site hopes to amass 4,500 signatures -- an homage to Rudy T.'s No. 45 jersey at Michigan -- on its online petition to support the hiring of the former Rockets and Lakers coach.

It had 252 Saturday night.

A big congrats to everyone involved in the movement, there are much bigger things planned come Monday...
