"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

My point was merely that he knows how to run a business and his operation of the athletic department reflects that.

When you hire a CEO as your athletic director, you are going to get a CEO as an athletic director, i.e., someone who attempts to make the most money possible for the organization. Dave Brandon has been successful in making organizations lots of money by emulating what other successful, similar organizations are doing. You are right, that is all he knows how to do and he is not going to change his approach.
I feel that if the higher-ups are discontent at this point, the relationship with the athletic director is not going to improve without a change of the athletic director, which, at this point, seems like a foregone conclusion, at least eventually.

Probably not great news coming off a visit to Alabama this past weekend and his decision upcoming on Aug. 22.

I think he is saying the staff stopped recruiting Weber after Harris committed and have been trying to play catch up since Harris de-committed.

He has Irvin at 41 but projects him as a late first round pick, that seems odd...

He has Dawson at 32 and Kaminsky at 36.
I am surprised Kaminsky is that low as well. The NBA seems to love 7 footers that can move a little, especially if they can shoot.

It is nothing terribly exciting, but at least it signals, to me anyway, that we are getting close to actual football.

Bonds formed with your parents once you become an adult are incredibly powerful and, at least in my case, are not fully realized until the parent is gone.

He is apparently playing for the Los Angeles Marauders of the PS-AFL.

I think, unless you are recruiting at an Alabama-type level, having a truly great defense every year is not sustainable. But that is just my thought.

I think their D will still be good, but you can't continuously replace guys and keep performing at a level as high as they have the last few years.

1995 Kickoff Classic against Virginia. My first game at the Big House. Dreisbach to Mercury Hayes with no time left to win it.

I think it is significant that Michigan has 3 of the 81 players selected. Shows how good the defense is expected to be.

That was indeed about the coldest I have ever been in my life. Tailgating consisted of sitting in the car drinking beer. But damned if it wasn't sunny!

He was mysteriously suspended for the Rose Bowl and no reason was ever given, but it was rumored to be due to steroid use.

Sounds about right to me.
The one thing that could elevate it to a truly great season would be good O-Line play. We know what we are getting pretty much everywhere else and the defense should keep them in every game.

So sorry for your loss Seth. Losing a parent is an incredibly difficult thing to go through, but it does eventually become less painful.

Like you said, there are certainly advantages to being in the booth and advantages to being on the sideline. IMO, having a relatively young offense, it makes sense for him to be on the sideline this year.
