and probably a lack of a filter...momentary lapses of reason happen, but I don't personally categorize it in the "dirty" description. Things happen in the heat of the moment and you can't help yourself...sort of like:

You got no frame of reference.

The best performance for Michigan vs msu was back in 2014 when a severe underdog went into East Lansing and beat the division leading spartans 31-27 with Devin Gardner throwing for 256 yds and running for a crucial TD late in the 4th quarter on a 4th and 2 from the msu 7 yd line.
And there was much rejoicing

OH, and fire Brandon...
just though I'd throw that in there.

about the dog, Seth. I have 3 and although I haven't had to put any dogs down since I was in high school, I know that when the time comes I have to put any of them down...I will be a complete wreck. Dogs are the best things to come home to after a tough day....

and it was still set up as it was during the movie, aside from a DB-style money grab of a stand selling memoribilia from the movie, t-shirts and such. The movie's 25th anniversary was this year and they had a big to-do there where Kevin Costner and a few other cast members played a game. Bob Costas was there too, IIRC. It was cool to visit there, but MAN you have to drive a long way into the corn fields to find it. Definitely off the beaten path.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Absolutely correct||
about the support DB gets from group of alums and/or supporters, but I mentioned this yesterday....DB also has stepped on some wealthy alumni on his way up the corporate ladder and I'm sure that there will be others who support any AD not named Dave Brandon. I'm sure those in his corner can still read the writing on the proverbial wall...

|3 days 15 hours ago||Agreed||
They can make purposeful strides to fix the situation, but there doesn't need to be a public hanging on all this. One of the important lessons of leadership, praise in public but punish in private. As long as we are made aware of things happening, there's no reason to slam DB in the public forum. I honestly don't care as long as something positive is happening.
|3 days 15 hours ago||I did a quick check||
and didn't see this posted anywhere, but this seems like the best place to share. ESPN has an article posted about the UM leadership stressing patience with the upcoming changes/transitions. I'm reading it now, but thought I'd post for others to see:
EDIT: " third parties close to Michigan have begun testing the waters for potential replacements if he does decide to make a change in the athletic director's office."
I wonder if they mean MGoBlog???

that they're gritty?

and I agree that Troy should be at least considered. He has a good feel for discipline, duh its an Academy...and he knows how to get a lot out of the talent he's been given. Troy was two years older than me at the Blue Zoo and he was a very approachable guy and has developed into a real coaching talent. I think he could coach the tempo stuff we've been hoping for if he were at Michigan.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Good point||
about the use of the word infamous. I've updated to make it less flippant.
|5 days 8 hours ago||SRSLY?||
Dude, what do you care? You didn't even show up for your reservation...
|5 days 9 hours ago||I thought||
that the references to Ferris Bueller's Day Off would be rather recognizable, and if you've never seen it...shame on you.
|5 days 10 hours ago||As much as||
Brandon has some wealthy and powerful friends who may be either invested or interested in his success at Michigan, I have to imagine that there's some powerful folks who, because of DB's past, could be interested in anyone else besides him being the AD. I would think that someone with his business background may have created some factions in his wake.
|5 days 10 hours ago||No problem whatsoever||
On a side note, anyone ever notice that the kid in this scene is wearing a letter jacket that says Groves on it? I thought it was interesting....

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Bates get on the Michigan private airplane...guess it's pretty serious.

and IIRC, that game was before the new rule. And I think he also played hockey, which...ya know...hockey players are tough.
And not depressed over seeing Denard, but a loss for my Falcons. Maybe a rephrase is in order. "Can't we find a different game to highlight Denard's talent?"
