I'm disappointed that we have a system where regents to the university have to have political party affiliations

Exactly. Brain dodged the most difficult and importan question and instead went with the softballs.

He's a lawyer, so I'm thinking he's a Democrat. But then he's actively involved in expanding buisness through lobbying Washington which makes him a Republican. And now I'm all confused. Which one is he Brian!? Someone help me out here! I can't decide whether he's the scourge of the country, or if he will save us all! Why must politics be so confusing??!!

The only thing that matters is Brandon out NOW or SOON. If they wait until after the season, it's probably Brandon hiring a nobody coach doming UM to three more years of bad and watching the best candidates go elsewhere.

True. However, one bad outing versus Bama does not break a program. This really exposed a problem that always has been under Sumlin: his defenses aren't that good. However, when comparing, say A&M to UM, they are still in a much better place. They still have one side of the ball elite, and one that needs a lot of work. Sure beats the hell out of UM's situation where neither side is elite.

The problem is that his program is disorganized. If it wasn't disorganized, then the headset would be moot. But it is, so people are looking for reasons why it might be that way.

To be fair, Saban has benefitted greatly from the BCS. Only one of his teams entered the BCS championship game number 1. The three others Saban never would have gotten a shot at the NC in Bo's day.

Guess I'm just different then. I feel I do need to connect with the teams in some way in order to cheer for them. Fortunately, the shared experience of both attending UM has done it. But if I don't feel anything in common with the players, then why would I watch? It's a bunch of people I don't know doing something that has no impact on me, or really anyone I know, and I have zero agency over. I don't cheer for sports just because sports exist. There has to be a buy in.
|4 days 8 hours ago||I disagree. I think||
I disagree. I think especially with the way the athletic department is perceived by fans, anything that makes the fans feel more included, that makes the watching sports experience accessable and positive, is a good thing. Having opportunities for fans and athletes to share experiences builds better support among the fans and makes their loyalty for durable. I look at OSU's football 'fan appreciation' thing they do in spring or whatever where fans are on the field kicking field goals with the team...man, that's freaking awesome.
However, I think that no matter how some may want a midnight madness, all are willing to give Belein what he wants even if they don't like it considering the caliber of program he has built doing it his way. But I'm in that camp that likes shared experiences with fans and athletes.

Skywriting, ticket prices, sponsors, giant macaroni, rawk music, and no rivals on the home schedule.

Ah, Malware. The Great Malware Diaster of 2011 destroyed my computer. Had to wipe it clean and start over. One advantage of the iPhone was that it didn't get none of that.

Great. But the AD isn't there to just serve the coaches.

Not sure about the religion part, but UM already did that with RR. Turns out people didn't think a UM coach should have an accent or yell. Unless it's Bo. And then yelling is a good quality.

Reluctantly they would if no better options presented themselves. But hopefully a good AD would be able to convince someone better.
|6 days 10 hours ago||Yeah, Long being the chair of||
Yeah, Long being the chair of the playoff would be nice to have at UM. I imagine the B1G would love that, and would piss off the SEC. But not sure if that would neccisarily help UM out of its present prediciments, so whoever is more able to fix the divisions in UM and properly set up football for the future is probably the top candidate at this point.

Speculation, but very educated speculation. All have strong ties to UM and all have good experience as ADs at other large schools. And taking the job at UM would probably be an upgrade for all as well. Bacon guessed that Brad Bates would be the next AD a week or two ago.

Huh? Wha? I'm confused...
|6 days 12 hours ago||Probably some third party.||
Probably some third party. Maybe it's Schlissel, but it could be the regents asking someone to ask those ADs about their interest. I can't imagine they'd hire a firm at this point because that costs money and would be on the record.
