Dave Brandon's incessant need for visibility at events like this really rubs me the wrong way.

Last year was the first year I attended and it was a blast. Come out and have a great time listening to out fearless leaders from the gridiron and the hardwood, as well as Dave Brandon's vison of the future.
Yea. I mean why the hell does the Athletic Director think he needs to be at an Alumni Club event about the schools ATHLETICS??!! What a selfish jerk.
It's his job as AD to go fundraise and gladhand at these things. There's a decent chance he's not a fan of doing it at all.
Have gone several years in a row and always enjoyed myself. Also, SHOCKINGLY, when Brandon speaks it is a highlight same as the coaches.
He's a very good speaker. I always enjoy listening to what he has to say.
I attended the one in NY a couple weeks ago - it was entertaining, time well spent.
