John U. Bacon recently quoted his new book on Twitter by posting the following statement by a friend of his:
“Michigan athletics used to feel like something we shared. Now it’s something they hoard... Anything of value they put a price tag on. Anything that appeals to anyone is kept locked away, and only brought out if you pay for it... And what’s been permanently banished is any sense of generosity.”
Bacon added the following: The suits will find your fun, buy it up, and charge you for it.
