Dave Brandon HAS CREATED the future
We've talked alot about Brandon potentially getting fired and the Board of Regents dislike for him, but one thing I'm not clear on is from a procedural standpoint, who would fire Brandon? Does the Board of Regents have the actual authority to do this, or only the President? Do they have to be in agreement?
An email I received in my inbox this afternoon piqued my interest. Let's look at how many emails I have received as a student urging me to buy student football season tickets, shall we?

Hmmm. This year's home slate, the $295 price tag, and the stadium experience is proving a hard sell to many students, eh? For those interested, here's the email some students received today (note this is the first time they've ever extended the deadline to my/my friends' knowledge):
Thank you for being a Michigan Football SuperFan! According to our scanned data, you attended 5 or more home football games on-time last season (prior to or at kickoff). As a result, you have been granted SuperFan priority for the 2014 season.
Earlier this week (Tuesday, April 15) was the deadline to renew your season tickets for the 2014 season. However, since you have proven your loyalty this past season, we would like to offer a one-time extension of the season ticket renewal deadline in order for you to continue your devotion as a Michigan Football Superfan.
We know you are busy closing out the Spring semester and may have questions regarding the new seating policy for the 2014 season. By extending the renewal deadline to Friday, April 25, we hope you are now able to guarantee your seat as a Michigan Football Student Season Ticket Holder.
