|22 hours 55 min ago||You used to be so cool!||
Also I hate you for joining 3 days before me. (I lurked for a year before joining, which you probably did as well).
|23 hours 55 min ago||I think||
that Brandon's problems with the other regents aren't so much because any of them are hardcore ideological politicos; but that some interpret Brandon's past regency and current AD job as a stepping stone to higher political office.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Oh yeah?||
I ALWAYS insisted we'd lose to Rutgers. I just hadn't factored in the overall week-to-week suckiness of the team this year.
|5 days 11 hours ago||We're actually lucky||
that Brandon was so impatient to try out his minor league hockey gimmicks that fans were'nt too distracted by consistent big win seasons.
If DB's list of shitty decisions looks bad with losing seasons, they wouldn't look any better with winning ones either.
|1 week 2 days ago||Cool story?||
Oh yeah? I just got done putting like 3 dozen LED bulbs all over my house. They're something-something thousand K and are DIMMABLE! D-I-M-M-A-B-L-E
|1 week 2 days ago||I agree||
Playboy bunnies would add a classy touch.
|1 week 2 days ago||Fleet is awesome,||

I lol extra when he's dancing caus I know there's some bluehair in the stands thinking . . .
|1 week 3 days ago||Yay for America!||
On the Liveblog (call me), Hope & Angst were intertwined like 2 squids humping .
|2 weeks 1 day ago||There NO stupid questions about Dave Brandon||
there are only stupid Dave Brandons.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Too soon||
It is ALWAYS too soon.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||My freshman year at Western||
after an uninspiring win against an uninspiring opponent my drunken dorm floor and I charged the field (along with a couple hundred other semi-confused but energetic fans) and tore down 1 set of goal posts. We dragged it 2 miles back to the dorm and had it duct-taped to our wall for a week before the campus police removed it. /coolstorybro
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Well||
our defensive backs coach has never coached defensive backs before . . .
but I'm sure it's just a matter of "not executing".
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hey Doucehbag||
Time to change the avatar.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Too much for my liking?||
Too much to stop me? . . . probably not.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I don't think it's appropriate||
for every away game, but I love the idea that this could turn into a tradition for big away games (OSU, Bama, Bowls, etc.
Considering the state of the program right now, ths works for Rutgers too.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I've been predicting||
a loss to Rutgers since before the season began.
Of course I thought we'd be going in to this game 5-0.
So just to continue to be contrarian I now predict a 21-13 michigan win.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Dave you're so right!||
I'm going to imagine I'm "in the same room with you" right now . . .
oooh, whats that tingly feeling? . . . is it your aura Dave? is feels like my every pore is drinking in your leadership & compassion!
It's a Truthiness cocktail!
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||still rocking that poor decision||
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Maybe you||
need to look for a new avatar. hmm?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I'm willing to bet||
that Taylor Lewan would have gotten salty.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I think a cardboard cut-out||
would do a better job on the sidelines.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||(No subject)||
|3 weeks 4 days ago||so||
you're saying . . . colectomy!
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Sorry,||
but I don't buy this for a second.
Dave Brandon has got the easiest job in America. . . smhmooze your big doners, roll in your scrooge McDuck pile of gold, and every once in a while approve some building projects or hire a sports coach. Just protect your cash cow( football) and serve your customers faithfully.
But unfortunately he's an egomaniac that wants to re-create what isn't broken, and put his mark on everything like a dog pissing on mailboxes.
Dave Brandon tripled the marketing staff of the athletic dept. . .. and every stupid scheme since then has been a desperate attempt for his flunkies to justify their salaries.
Michigan deserves first class facilities, and the $ to pay top coaches that demand excellence. Dave Brandon knows how to raise money, but so do many others . . . he was just the first one willing to spend it on coaches to buy some success.
Profits wont drop under his successor anymore than they dropped for his predecessor, assuming he hasn't single handedly alienated every last remaining Michigan fan; He's already losing a generation with the Hoke hire, constant minor league baseball schemes, and the general disdainful treatment of students.
The new president isn't stupid, he may not be a big sports fan, but having an athletic dept that at least "keeps up with the Jones" shouldn't be much of a problem.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||but he still||
wont send the band.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Righted the ship?!||
Does this ship feel fucking "righted" right now?
Hoke came in, coasted to a great record with the previous coaches players and has been trending downhill ever since. I do give full credit to him & Mattison (with DB's $$$ hand) for helping improve the defense.
Hokes recruiting has been off-charts-impressive (particularly given the W-L record) but what has he developed them into yet other than the current train wreck. . .
Sure, I can see Dave Brandon press releasing that garbage , but I don't know anyone who'd actually beleive it.
Brian's Titanic imagery is a far better ship analogy. Hoke did safely steer us away from the shallow reef . . . directly into the iceberg.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||if Shane isn't pushing Dg at this point during practices||
thats on the coaches as well.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||It's not THAT uncommon||
my dick is named Maximus.
