Don't shoot me, I'm just the messenger.
Jay Feely spoke to the U-M Southwest Florida Club and opined on various topics including RichRod and Dave Brandon.
Feely did not offer the same glowing support to Rodriguez or his tenure at Michigan, instead voicing support [for] Rodriguez’s boss, first-year athletic director David Brandon.
“The Michigan faithful have confidence in David Brandon, that he understands what it takes and what it means to be a Michigan man and I think that Dave will make the right decision either way,” Feely said.
His appearance was meant to raise funds for the UMHS.
A member of coach Lloyd Carr’s 1997 national title team, Feely was in Naples not only to talk football but to generate funds for the Michigan Mott Children and Women’s hospital in Ann Arbor.
Feely said he can recall visiting patients when he was a student, along with a certain Heisman trophy winner who also remains active in the cause.
“Charles Woodson donated $2 million of his own money, which was just incredible,” Feely said.
