You might want to read what you just wrote. I could never say Michigan is dead to me. It is a huge part of who I am. And while I am deeply disappointed in what is going on with the athletic department right now, I just refuse to give up my love for the institution. Maybe I misinterpreted your comment.

What the OP said a thousand times. Shane, we are all proud of you and you are going to be a big part of turning this thing around. Get well.

Brandon sent this at 1:00 in the morning after having his employee going out and facing the music with the press (albeit crappily done). He does not have the guts to face the press about his own failings and trying to at least be supportive of his employee. Not only is his primary job qualification that he is a carnival huckster, he is a gutless turd.

This comment is a putrid, stinking pile of armadillo shit.
|1 day 3 hours ago||I used to worry about that.||
I used to worry about that. We may lose 90% of the recruits and 50% of the roster. I'm afraid we just have to accept what happens. This cannot be allowed to continue. Our program has become a total laughingstock. We are going to have to accept some short term pain in order to change that. Change that does not involve another Brandon Process.

I could make a tacky comment about another basketball school caring about their football program, but I won't.

That was the sentiment they (primarily Danny Kannell, actually and partly Golic) suggested about the concussion issue. But they clearly said he will be fired for the performance of the team.

Having lived in Birmingham, Alabama for over thirty years and having been forced to listen to his shit if I wanted to hear about "sports" until I got satellite radio.....It is 2014, can anyone name someone who cares what Paul Finebaum thinks outside of the trailer parks below the Mason Dixon line? (And I sadly agree with the sentiment in his tweet.)
|1 day 5 hours ago||I'm sorry. I despise Brandon||
I'm sorry. I despise Brandon to the very depths of my MGoSoul. I couldn't disagree with Ross any more about Brandon. And Jim Harbaugh has always been my dream candidate. Next to Anthony Carter, he may be my favorite player of all time. But after all Ross has done for this school, making that suggestion without any knowledge seems unfair. You clearly can connect the theoretical dots, but I feel like Ross has earned the benefit of the doubt.
|1 day 16 hours ago||I so hate this for you and||
I so hate this for you and your peers. I was a student from 1977-1981. We went 8-4 my junior year and thought the world was ending. But we never considered apathy a possibility. Sadly, Brandon and his pathetic Madison Avenue act is making the experience Oregon lite (except for the wins.) Winning certainly helps a lot, but I hate that you and your fellow students are getting the shaft so that we can spend more on more Senior Associate Consulting Marketing Coordinators in the AD. That goes beyond Coach Hoke's numberous deficiencies. It goes to the soul of what the program should be about. In my opinion, more about the students, athletes and non-athletes and less about the Athletic Department and the sky box tennants. End rant.
|1 day 21 hours ago||FWIW, I think you are right||
FWIW, I think you are right on the mark here. I think this is a case where being clueless is much more important than bad blocking schemes in the big picture. I do not in any way think Brady Hoke was intentionally leaving Shane Morris in consciously aware that he was endangering the kid's health. But unfortunately I believe that is what he did consciously or unconsciously. The video is clearly damning in that regard.
|1 day 21 hours ago||I do not believe he||
I do not believe he intentionally endangered his player, I don't see how you can view that video and not think he did, nonetheless, actually endanger his player.

You just made my day worse. You accomplished something I considered impossible. Congratulations.

This is all premature. I hope (with my heart, not my head), that Coach Hoke turns it around. But should that not happen and in the unlikely event he would be interested, I would not be included in the "we" that would not want Harbaugh.

I just don't understand the Mattison bashing that was going on here yesterday. He has done an excellent job and represents this university very well. Even though I love Hoke as a person, he deserves the vast majority of what he is getting. But to me, Mattison is far better than the mediocre DC some are trying to make him out to be.

I don't believe blaming Bo makes a lot of sense. Perhaps I misunderstand the 45 year comment.

You don't need to be an MD. You do need to be much more physically developed than 95% of even elite high school linemen. Having said that, I agree with your last sentence.
