To set the record straight, it is my understanding that the plans to expand and perfect facilities were long in discussion before Brandon arrived in Ann Arbor. Bill Martin did all the work on the luxury boxes and I suspect a lot of the prep work for Crisler and the other improvements. In addition, Brandon is reaping the rewards of the financial turnaround that Martin spearheaded during his tenure. Say what you will about Martin's inability to hire a coach (all of which is probably true), but people cannot refute the fact that he deserves the credit for the finances.
So what has Brandon done that we should applaud graciously? Hire Hoke and Mattison et al. obviously. And that in and of itself MAY be all that he needs to have done to be remembered as a successful AD. With that finished, he seems to be reverting back to his corporate CEO ways in seeking to generate MOAR revenue. I'm not sure that's all that bad, but it is definitely a little frightening when he starts treading on traditional things like uniforms, advertising, etc. As someone mentioned above, "tradition" means something different to everyone, especially different generations. But I think we can agree that the changes to the uniforms have deviated from previous tradition and that bothers me.
All that said, does he appear to be a good AD thus far. Sure! But that doesn't mean we can't complain. I mean, if we can't complain, what do we have???
