this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Tremendous just retweeted this twitter diatribe by former player Chris Floyd. I am going to reserve judgment until the full story comes out, but I just don't get this. In the last couple years, we've had similar rants demanding a job for Corwin Brown on the new staff (clearly the AD knew what they were doing), scholarships for relatives (i.e. Braylon Edwards), and ex-players injecting themselves into the head coach search process. I appreciate everything these guys did for the program and university, but this just seems a bit much.
Moved back to Ann Arbor from DC 3months ago because I was promised a job in the Athletic Department.....
I am a former student athlete and National Champion
After a promise and 3 months of waiting and interviewing and waiting more, they go and hire someone else....Leaders and Best? SMH
Still, My loyalty is with Michigan. I'll always support one of my favorite people, Coach Hoke any way I can....
There is a serious disconnect between the athletic department and the athletic alumni and they wonder why we don't come back or give back!
