"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

and everyone would be happy happy."
Actually, that was Brandon's idea, and I was against it at the time, mostly because I didn't want Michigan to become what ND had become before they got better again and stomped us 31-0.
So actually, that is another point against Brandon.
I'm aware there are factions. Some of those factions are willing to betray the current team, the coach and the program, going as far as conspiring with opportunistic and unprincipled journalists in order to sabotage Michigan football in order to pursue their partisan objectives. (It would be nice to see these unprincipled journalists iced out of the AD and true advocates of the program, like JU Bacon, welcomed, rather than the other way around.)
Do you not see how you undercut your own argument?

that's quite a leap.

God dammit, who isn't having a better season than we are?
If you don't start a "CC: Chris Wilkerson" thread," then I will.

Eventually, we'll all die.
Then our children will die.
Ultimately, there will be a heat death of the entire universe.
But in the short term, I think you're right.

he might return at the head of the invading army that recaptures Ann Arbor and slaughters everyone connected with the Brandon regime, including any remaining season-ticket holders.
Thats how it always is in Rome or Bagdad, anyway.

And how do you reverse incompetence in HC searches?

Oops, I mean "probable, mild concussion."

two years of 7-6 represents at least a temporary halt to his downward trajectory, a sort of critical point.
How many years can he go 7-6 and still say he is turning it around?
|2 days 13 hours ago||I think||
31-0 is a blowout loss, and 30-14 to Minnesota at home is unless semantics.
Or do you mean more of them?

I'm glad we've identified the source of the problem. Were these the same "naysayers" that launched "stretchgate" and propelled Michael "do you have any idea what countable hours are" Rosenberg to his dream job at SI? (Imagine the positive vibes when M.R. was ushered into Hoke's office this past summer to interview yet another Michigan Man living the dream.)
I'm glad Michigan is back to "competitive" after only seven years of rebuilding. Lloyd must be so proud of the foundation he created for us.

I think you should ask them.
I don't think UM can have a Div-I level football team while he is still around.
And that is personal to my family.

recoup some of that $2 million in years to come when cheap shilling and adverserial management abate enough to avoid annihilating a generation of potential alumni fans in years to come, although planning for anything beyond the next quarterly income statement is not something that today's generation of corporate raiders and economic hit men are prone to do by nature without a rebellion in the streets and the direct threat of violence.
Wait a minute . . . Dave, is that you?

Perhaps the most important part of the AD's job, n'est-ce pas?
Especially after firing the predecessor after only three seasons.
If we're going to be fair, let's not just include the good things, like gutting the non-yes-men in the AD, alienating the fans, debasing the game-day experience, and treating the whole thing like his own personal playground.

if the Daily will print "Daily screws up" as a story because it appeared here as an OP?

for Hoke to realize Brandon was sucking his guts out.
Film study, Woow Factor, Unimformz.
Brandon said early on that football was the goose with the golden eggs, and that he was going to focus on it.
Maybe this is the outcome of an egoistic know-nothing giving the football program his brand of TLC.
I may be going delusional here, but could Brandon have mandated Bo-era style ball on his handpicked coach in his dream job?

Did you see Gerg's most-improved D at Texas after leaving here?
Everybody seems to improve by leaps and bounds once they hit the road from here.
