Addidas doesn't have any employees. Uniformz are created by a random drawing.

It just goes to show you, the winged helmet is a sweet look It's cool that we stuck with it for eighty years when nobody else did.
|15 hours 50 min ago||Right now it looks like doom||
Right now it looks like doom and gloom because the choice for recruits is between Brady Hoke and nothing.
When the nothing becomes Jim Harbaugh or Les Miles or some other known quantity, it will bring some of those recruits back. If it's a big name hire, it will likely bring in some recruits not even on our radar.
A good hire can easily "save" this class. It will look gloomy until then, though.

He can adapt to more than just a pocket manball offense. Gives the next coach some flexibility in running the offense he wants to run without being locked in to a particular offense.

Goodbye to Dave Brandon's political career.
Trying to milk a public University for big buyout $$ is going to endear him to nobody outside of East Lansing.

No Dave, the question is not whether you read blogs or not. The question is did you send nasty emails to Michigan supporters, then illegally delete those emails, and then obfuscate the truth about it as is your normal mode of operation?

"I'm here to get an award tonight, so I appreciate you showing up, but that's not why I'm here," added Brandon, who alongside a handful of staff members represented the U-M athletic department as recipients of an award recognizing the department for its key roles in tourism and its impact on Ann Arbor's economy.
No, dickhead, you are there to represent the University of Michigan in your (not for long) capacity as Athletic Director. But please, by all means, keep making it all about you.
If there ever was clear evidence of the fundamental underlying problem, this quote highlights it.

Would make our game in Salt Lake next year pretty interesting.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Wow, all these lists consist||
Wow, all these lists consist of Superbowl NFL coaches and coaches of Top Ten teams. Interesting, um, optimism.
No Youngstown State/Tressel types or Cincinnati/Dantonio types like those Top Ten teams had to do. We're just going to pluck a coach from LSU or Oklahoma or the 49ers or the Ravens.
The Michigan Difference.
|2 days 10 hours ago||it works to our advantage||
It works to our advantage that the inevitable has become clear in October.
Nothing will "officially" happen until very late November/December. But you can be sure that all of the backdoor channels are being worked now that the writing is on the wall.
Would-be candidates have time to throw their hats in the ring, talk to their wives, and make staffing plans.
Having this occur in October instead of December will likely shake loose a few desirable candidates that wouldn't happen otherwise.

And no line of sight that next year will be any different.
Time to move on.

I joined for the first coaching search in 2007. It's a zany time, those coaching searches.
Hadn't ever seen one, now this will be my third in 7 years. It's old (mad) hat.

I was going to bother to write something, but you just did it for me.

I'm surprised that NW and MD are so low. I would have thought we would be favored.
But I guess it's true . . . we are what our reecord says we are.

You can't trust him. Hoke's his buddy, and it colors everything.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Brandon picked Hoke because||
Brandon picked Hoke because he can control him and do manipulative shit like sit on film sessions. You think a real coach is going to put up with that?
|3 days 15 hours ago||He's way ahead of you. A||
He's way ahead of you. A couple more cut-and-paste edits to the template and that sucker's ready to go.
Look for it at 1:00 AM some Tuesday night in early December.
|3 days 15 hours ago||You are dreaming. Unless||
You are dreaming.
Unless forced by the threat of near-violence, he will trot out another one of these open letters later this fall.
He is not a man to voluntarily admit mistakes. He will double down on Hoke if given even the slightest opportunity.
Which we won't do.

The handful of students that show up should just stand in an outline that says FIRE BRANDON against the empty seats. That would really get the point across.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Because he is powerless in||
Because he is powerless in the face of events.
|3 days 17 hours ago||He should have never coached||
He should have never coached here in the first place.
At least he got to live out his dream for a few years and he'll receive some lovely parting gifts. Not a bad ride to be on for a while.
In the meantime, all of my fantasies are still on the shelf collecting dust. I'd trade with him in a minute.

Laugh until you cry. It's the only appropriate response at this point.
Hoops starts soon.

That's the real scandal. It's the burning question that nobody is asking.
During our regular Friday night team meeting, one of the topics presented to motivate our team was a history lesson addressing commitment and teamwork in a tough environment. A tent stake was presented to the team as a symbol of this concept
How the fuck does a tent stake represent commitment and teamwork? Seriously? That's the best you came up with?
No wonder we got our asses kicked.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Yeah, I pictured a giant||
Yeah, I pictured a giant javelin with flames and everything, with a couple of MSU cheerleaders impaled on it.
Instead I come to see that it's this little Cub Scout pup tent spike. Makes it even funnier. Pure theatre.

Hoke should fry some up right there on the big "O" right in the middle of Ohio Stadium. That'll show 'em.
