Also when I see BYU's helmets I always think Yahoo! somehow has a college football team.

The number of errors -- some of them really bad ones -- is definitely distracting. Dunno how the print version turned out, but the Kindle version hardly seems to have gone through a proofreading phase at all.

A very good point. Without Mary Sue's blatant cronyism/favoritism, none of this horrible crap would have been inflicted on the athletic department/lettermen/fans/etc.

Also his interfering with alumni/lettermen events. A true micromanaging dickwad who couldn't stand to have ANYTHING be outside of his control.
It's speculated on in the book, and no one can really know what's in the guy's head or heart, but the idea he was reaching for redemption from his own disappointing collegiate athletic career seems to explain a lot of his wacko behavior.

I'm only halfway through the book, but it's made me hate Brandon all over again. "Colossal toolbag" doesn't even begin to cover this guy's management style and personal shortcomings.
Unfortunately, there are all too many "people who are in charge of things are in charge of them for no reason" douchey MBA types like him scattered throughout the business world.
In short, we're all doomed -- let's get smashed on fortified wine.

While I admittedly hate the piped-in music pretty much altogether, the 1920 thing is a poor attempt at a straw man argument (not to mention historically wrong, since the stadium wasn't built until the late 1920s). The piped-in music started with RichRod, going WAYYYY back to 2008. It's still a pretty new phenomenon, and folks who don't like it are not 100 years old and recall doing the Charleston, old chap. Heck, I'm still young-ish enough to be able to remember being a student and not requiring anything but the band to get pumped up for a Michigan game. Crazy!
That said, I think most of us who don't like RAWK at all are willing to accept it's not going away. We're just asking for it to be dialed back and/or at least be better timed so as not to crap all over the natural stadium atmosphere/organic fan enthusiasm.

Yeah. People who claim they need shitty piped-in music to get pumped for a football game are doing the whole being a football fan thing wrong.
