At the press conference announcing RR's termination, Dave Brandon talked about how Michigan has historically paid its coaches "in the middle of the pack" (quoting http://mgoblog.com/content/press-conference-recap) and stated that that was "not appropriate" (quoting Dave Brandon). Well, what happened? What happened to paying big bucks for a coach? Dave Brandon certainly can't be considering paying Brady Hoke top-of-the-market money. And while I had my hopes that a shitty head coach hire like Brady Hoke would mean Michigan was sure to shell out the moolah to bring in some top notch coordinators, we're now staring down the barrel of Al fucking Borges at OC and Vance Bedford/Jon Hoke/Some Other Crappy McCrapperson at DC. These people can't command the kind of money real football schools are paying their coaches. So was Dave Brandon just talking out his ass? Is the man completely full of hot air? Slimier than a used car salesman? Dave Brandon set the bar for himself by saying that Michigan's failure to pay its coaches above middle of the pack was "not appropriate," but then he hired coaches for whom compensation above middle of the pack would be "not appropriate." Is Dave Brandon off his retarded rocker? Where are the big-time coaches we looked forward to following Dave Brandon's talk about opening the coffers?
