it's a major award
Angelique Chengelis has an ARTICLE in today's Detroit News. Whoever wrote the headline summed it up nicely: "Scrutiny Relentless on Embattled UM AD Dave Brandon". It's great to see this issue continue to get front page treatment (although Schlissel's measured approach won't satisfy all who frequent this board).
The alumni survey gets a lot of attention, and MGoBlog gets a shoutout, in typically accurate Chengelis fashion:
Also on Tuesday, MGoBlog, a Michigan fan blog, published email exchanges allegedly made between Brandon and several fans. The blog could not verify Brandon wrote them, but the responses credited to him were dismissive and smug.
WIth the current instability with both our Coach & AD it is inevitable that our recruits will at least maintain contacts with other schools. Out of the current 9 recruits which players can we afford to lose the least ?
I actually think 3 are critical:
1) Alex Malzone - we really need a QB especially one who seems to have a genuine love for Michigan and has done nothing but win championships at Brother Rice.
2) Grant Newsome - OL depth is critical. We all have learned what can happen when we whiff even a single year at this position.
3) Brian Cole - We need dynamic playmakers and we need to keep him away from Sparty.
Nick Baumgardner at Mlive penned an article about Brian Griese and his take on the current situation. Link is here.
I don't normally read the comments below articles, especially when reading political ones because so many of the comments make you wonder how so many can waste a brain. However I found this one below and it made me grin. "Those who stay..."
CommieHigh86 10 minutes ago @KeithKZ That WOULD be the Spartan way to handle things -- like Max Bullough -- to selfishly abandon your team when they need you most. So I'm not surprised to see you suggest this. But at Michigan, "those who stay will be champions." #Go Blue!
Some might not appreciate this but it is a creative take on the matter. I did get a chuckle out of it..
sorry, embed doesn't want to work for me and SIAP.
