Schlissel needs to grow a pair, fire Brandon, and be done with it.

No one asked Hoke what is Brandon's favorite color?

It doesn't. But Sweatervest lying to keep them eligible to play does.
|16 hours 25 min ago||Nightmare||
So is that what Brandon is trying to do? Survive in order to keep Hoke around? Presumably becasue Brandon thinks Hoke is a great coach and has the program moving in the right direction?
It's a nightmare I can't wake up from.
|1 day 11 hours ago||What If||
What if Brandon was fired and pack all his shit away with him. And then they hired someone like Brad Bates from BC who knows what the hell he is doing. And then what if Bates hired Harbaugh? Much more satisfying.

Penalty, plain and simple. He's lucky they didn't get called for it on the earlier TD.
It will be fun to watch how the Irish followers work the media to try to weasle into the playoff.

All varsity coaches? Amazing that they all were in town. This smells like Brandon PR.

There's a lot of fat that can be lopped off the AD budget starting with the over-paid administrators. More than enough to compensate for paying top dollar for a new coach, lost revenue from concourse advertising, and reduced student ticket prices. Not sure how doing away with Legend's jerseys impacts revenue. Unless your refering to marketing same jerseys at the MDen. You should also factor in that there will be less litigation over emplyee hearing loss due to the piped in music. As is Brandon is killing the cash cow that has paid for the non-revenue sports and facilities at the U. Hopefully taking these steps and winning back the students will ensure the long term finacial health of the department and football program.

They have Brandon up in the booth. That frees up the coordinators to be on the field with the troops. No wonder Hoke doesn't wear headphones.

If President Schlissel said the athletic department needs a culture change that is huge. That's about as close as one can get to saying Brandon is going to be let go as you can get without actually saying it.

I would add, repectfully,
- You, Dave Brandon, resign and jump in a lake.
|1 week 5 days ago||No Rebuilds||
Michigan has been rebuilding since 2007. Michigan's recruiting has been excellent under Hoke so the next coach will be expected to win right off the bat. Win the national championship? No, but they better be in the running for the Big Ten title.
After the Rodriguez and Hoke debacles I think Michigan needs to bring home Harbaugh or Miles no matter the cost. Anything less witll unleash another alumni shit storm.
|1 week 6 days ago||Just More Brandon PR||
Brandon started to fight back last Thursday by launching a PR campaign with the TV interviews on the local stations. The boycott is about Brandon. The students are not withdrawing thier support for the athletes.
If Brandon gave a crap about students he never would have impemented the general admission seating policy or jacked the students ticket prices. If Brandon gave a crap about students he would have lowered student ticket prices and re-implemented senority based seating this year.
So, I would expect Brandon to keep fighting anyway he can. If he leaves he'll be kicking and screaming.

It would take Dave Brandon to be fired and Michigan to win the Big Ten this year. That is the stated goal of the program. Hard to do being 0-2 in conference play. If not, well that's four years of failure which is not acceptable. This is Michigan fer Godsakes!

Brandon is fighting back, Thursday's media blitz on local TV looking all contrite and wounded that nasty people would want his job and hurt his feeling and his family's feelings too, Shame on us.

Brandon's had two years to fix his student seating fiasco. And now he's not tone deaf. What a crock of bullshit.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||No Thank You||
I can't get the memory of Frost blubbering on national TV about how his retiring coach Osborne deserved the national championship.
These coaching ideas are getting a little goofy.

If I was the GM at the local stations I'd preempt regular programming and put Dickless Dave on live unbeknownst to him.

The best scenario is that Brandon is already gone and the new AD is rolling into Ann Arbor now.
