the count on DB is no balls and 2 strikes.
Strike 1 was taking away a home game to travel to a neutral site to play Alabama. Penn State just finished a home and home with Alabama ... I would guess that over 90% of Michigan fans would have preferred a home and home seriers.
Strike 2 is now the attempt to justify not having the MMB go this "huge" game that DB scheduled ????
$400K ... sounds to me like Mary Sue shoud simply reduce DB's pay in 2012 by $400K. There ... band trip to Dallas is now paid for !
