On Monday, Coe suffered a Twitter existential crisis, brought on by a meeting with his coach and the never-ending snows of the plains.
Coe has backed off his threat to leave Iowa, saying he was just working through some angst, so for all intensive purposes this story is over. But I'm still harping on "pre Madonna." I know that on the internet, garbled idioms are a diamond dozen, so maybe I shouldn't poke fun. But Coe is quickly learning that it's a doggy dog world out there.
