Unfortunate, but absolutely the right call by Hoke and company.

I don't have anything to add to this. Excellent work, Brian.

Great moment for Austin and the team. Hopefully the first of many.

I watched every snap of that Northwestern game. What else do you want from me?

Maybe if the B1G hadn't scheduled at the hill 2 years in a row they'd have a shot.

The next guy agrees with you.

Happy Birthday, Coach.
Enjoy yesterday's win, and a good celebration today.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||That may be correct but it's||
That may be correct, but it's an imcomplete picture. Brandon's job was caretaker of the athletics department both for athletes and those who support the teams. He failed miserably in half of those duties. Hoke may be loved, but nobody with a grasp on the world of college football expects him to return. Those players adopting that attitude think their opinion should reform the entire CFB universe, which is entitlement.
Dave Brandon created the mob that ousted him. For that failure he's walking away with millions of dollars. Why does he deserve this sympathy?

Thanks for the coffee, but you know there's nowhere you can smoke anymore.

I will be up or down voting you a lot Moe. What happens over the course of the day will determine which.
I'm rooting for you, buddy.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I'm No Bando||
But I was highly skeptical in the original thread as well. Color me wrong. Color DB fired. Please. Seriously.
|4 weeks 3 hours ago||What we get:||
Eliminate a few weeks of these players being shaped by ineptitude.
|4 weeks 6 hours ago||Mediocre?||
You think Hoke's performance has been mediocre?
But seriously, to answer the question: not a damn thing.

They have 10 guys out there, someone needs to make a play.

You are dreamy MgoJohnStamos.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Uneducated Guess||
If Hurst hadn't come off the field between the TD and PAT, it's possible it was about a play earlier in the drive. That may have just been the first opportunity to discuss a different problem.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Shortsighted Issue||
You say Brandon's money grab for football pays for almost the entire athletic budget. You are absolutely correct. But people are angry. There are those who will give up their season tickets. There are those who will stop donating because they are sick of the gouging. The football revenue is too important to ignore the ongoing issues. It may not take a hit tomorrow, but thinking in sustainable revenue is more important than thinking about milking every dime the fan base has today.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I understand the doubt||
I understand the doubt involved. If it's a real response to anything, it's inappropriate for someone in that position. The issue is knowing if it's legit. I am certainly in the camp that wants DB out, but I'm not sold on this particular issue.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks for the clarification.||
Thanks for the clarification. I apparently missed something in the last sequence. Perhaps my brain getting an early start on blocking out this season.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||On the botched reception call||
Am I the only one baffled by Michigan managing to turn the missed reception call on the sideline into a way to burn not one timeout (unavoidable after the bad replay judgement) but both? For a team with recurring clock management issues, that's one I have to add to the growing list.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||It's hard to see eye to eye||
It's hard to see eye to eye with Dave Brandon. His head is too far up his own digestive tract.

This comment is infuriating. Also accurate.

I would love a win. I will be rooting hard for a win. But I watched the game last week.
Fire Brandon and Go Blue!
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Seeing as M has barely||
Seeing as M has barely cleared the .500 mark the last few years, and may be staring down the barrel of a 2-4 win season, an 18 year old probably won't feel that it's a power much longer. Your devoted fan (and donor) base is getting increasingly frustrated and alienated by the existing regime. The issue with Brandon's approach is that the Rosses of the world won't be around forever and the new batch will only remember being dumped on by the AD.
Like it or not, this is a real danger point for future relevance of the football program, and by extension the entire department.

Boy could I use a good posbang about now. What a week.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Statements like that||
Statements like that crystalize exactly why Brandon cannot be in charge of the athletic director at a major university. It shows a lack of understanding on Brandon's part.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Michigan has great||
Michigan has great facilities, a team with talent, and if they are paying like they mean it I do think it would be an attractive move.
