I worked in media/marketing for 18 years, so I saw my fair share of incompetence...and also my fair share of great ideas and effective campaigns.
On more than one occasion, I was hired or promoted by someone who could be compared to DB...but it wouldn't have been fair to evaluate me just because I was associated with those folks.
Just because DB is a DB, that doesn't mean that he only hired asshats.

I admire your optimism that this will be considered the Monday Harbaugh thread. Maybe the Monday mid-morning Harbaugh thread. Because of course there are many more to come...

Regardless of wins and losses, michigan football is still nationally relevant. The coverage of the coaching change is evidence of this fact.

Great writing. Your best work so far. I was at the game in Atlanta. Went hoarse shrieking "Spiiiiike" during the first half.

Les' comments are meaningless. He'd be crazy to say anything else to a prospective recruit.

DTE has been in our neighborhood for months and the seems to have paid off. We have power! Previously, we were losing power at the slightest breeze. People in our neighborhood were wielding torches and pitchforks.

It would also be interesting to see an analysis of teams that return 80-90% of the previous year's two-deep.

Clark isn't on the current depth chart so I omitted him. And there are easily identifiable replacements.

|4 weeks 18 hours ago||Halftime Interview||
Of course, Izzo has to mention that they were playing two walk-ons in the first half. And he threw his big guys under the bus.
I have no objection to a coach talking about needing to play better, but his way of calling out specific players is really grating.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I know this isn't realistic||
I know this isn't realistic but with his recruiting skills and the way the players seem to like him and his passion for Michigan, it'd be great to see him stay on as DL coach. Or maybe something involving player relations or recruiting in the AD.

Calm down. Clark is in jail. I'm guessing it's not that easy to call someone who's in jail.

Not sure if you're alluding to the BTN announcers or not, but it they were so bad it was cringe-worthy.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||To be alive...||
As of last week, two of my friends from high school - who also attended U of M with me - have passed away as a result of bile duct cancer.
I understand the passion that many of us feel for U of M sports (football and basketball, in particular), but some of you really need to step away and take a deep breath.
Maybe it's because I'm a bit older than most of you...or because of the losses and struggles I've experienced...but the lack of perspective around here sometimes amazes me.
So, while this is a bit of a corny topic for the board, it is a good reminder...and made me want to add my snark-free $.02.

Completely agree. The lack of nuanced thinking in many of the knee-jerk comments in yesterday's threads is disheartening.
What Frank did (and it does appear as though the word "allegedly" doesn't need to be used here) is awful.
It doesn't mean that he's garbage or a horrible person.
We don't know what his upbringing has done to him. Or how difficult it was - and is - for him to overcome the environment in which he was raised.
Let's hope this is a wake-up call. Let's hope Frank will atone for this and get the help he needs.
And, of course, hope that there are no long-term negative repercussions for the victim.
