Hmm...I think you're probably right. Good interpretation.
I don't think Brandon was a good AD or anything, but I do think Bacon has a bit of an axe to grind here. Seems to be drawing the black and white conclusion that Brandon's ego was the main thing that got in the way of getting Harbaugh, when I think it's equally likely he just was kind of shit at wooing a top level head coach, due to inexperience, personality, and other factors. The fans were clamorning for Harbuagh, and Brandon must have known he would have been worshipped had he landed him.
I'd say (and have heard from others, like Sam Webb) that Mary Sue and Lloyd Carr's coldness to the idea of Harbaugh was a much bigger factor in him "not feeling the love."

This excerpt doesn't make a lot of sense.
It says: Brandon was very self-critical when he didn't get Harbaugh and was fully expecting to get him -- Harbaugh was his first choice. His problem was ineptitude in executing that choice, not intention.
Brandon wanted to be the center of attention and didn't want a coach like Harbaugh, who would outshine him....
Those two ideas don't really square with each other.

Don't think you're interpreting this right. Bo and Lloyd we're exactly known for being super forthcoming about injuries, or anything. I'd say it's much more likely that concussions weren't as big of a deal for that generation. Know that doesn't square with Brian and many others reaction to the Shane event, but I'm pretty sure that's what he meant.

I'm almost positive it's the latter. He means the reaction of the media, and that it shouldn't have been such a big deal in the first place.
He starts out saying he hasn't really been following it...because it Bo and Lloyd's days, kids playing with concussions wasn't a major news event.

Where do you think Enis and Evans project to? Both worked out at RB at camp, yeah?
Make sense to take 4 RBs (in addition to Falcon and Davis) in this class?

fairly new to softball, but feels like they NEED to change the hit-by-pitch rule.
the penalty for missing an inch inside should not be a free base runner.

Think you're just wrong here. We don't know the circumstances for his dismissal but apparently the King coaches are pissed.

I'm from LA an went to UM.
I'd say for neighborhoods in LA: Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Eagle Rock, Highland Park, Mount Washington, Glassel Park, Pasadena.
But also... Pomona/Claremont. Probably more similar to Ann Abor than any neighborhood in LA. Home to several top Liberal Arts colleges. Feels like a town not a city. And closer to Chino. Wife could take train to downtown LA, which is fast and easy.
Do yourself a favor and don't live in Fullerton. It's boring. West Hollywood is probably too far of a commute, and pretty sceney LA -- unless you're into that.

Wait, so your big conclusion / thesis is that Dave Brandon is a piece of shit human being??
So was Steve Jobs. So was Stanley Kubrick. So was Henry Ford. So is Nick Saban.
Some of the most creative innovators in history were giant assholes. Dave Brandon didn't fail because of this.
He failed because: 1. Bad head football coach hire. 2. Spectacularly poor taste in his vision for modernizing UM.

Are you daft?
No one is going to committ to a coach they have never met, or a school they have never visited.
Other schools had commits because they already had relationships with those kids.
