The question is how does Brandon's staff compare to OSU's or Texas' and do the additional staff members add value (mean are their efforts profitable)? I suspect they are because Brandon knows business better than any of us and I have a feeling Michigan's Athletic marketing was very outdated.
|12 hours 58 min ago||No, the OP||
is only looking at 1 side of the equation.
Profit = Revenue - Expense. He's just looking at the Expense side, which is absurd on many levels.
|12 hours 59 min ago||?||
Isn't a rising staff salary a solid thing? We want good coaches across the board and have them in most of our sports.
Do you even know what's in the marketing and travel buckets? Is it recruiting visits (both recruits to M and coaches to recruits houses), coaching clinics...?
I also don't think you understand how to read a budget. The line " But perhaps most surprising is the $2.6 million the department now spends on “Hosting, Food and Special Events,” an increase of almost 500-percent" simply means that expenses in that category have increased, but how does that compare to revenue generated from those activities?
Fans are not paying for the suites. The revenue from suites is increasing (presumably more than 2.6 million) and the number you see is just the expense side of the equation. If food is bundled into ticket/ box prices, then it may be very difficult to allocate directly.
Also, Brandon took a pay cut to come to Michigan. The current CEO of Domino's makes $6.4 million/ year and that is likely understated for his delayed pension and additional stock.

neg banging is the way to go. It shows other readers that everybody thinks a certain comment is completely useless and for a time, it even hid the actual comment.
|20 hours 59 min ago||Haha||
That guy was a jerk. I wonder if banned people come back with other usernames or if thir IPs are blocked from creating a new account.

There is no way Boise State has better doctors, facilities, or technology than any of the schools he was rumored to be interested in. Compare that to a place like Ann Arbor, Oregon, LA...
|1 day 13 hours ago||These kind of things make me question Hoke,||
he's not a genius on either side of the ball, and I think that's needed to win in college.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Disagree||
BBrown only sent 4 texts and Malik responded to the 1st. If he ignored the 1st, then presumably BBrown would not have sent another message.
I take this to mean no Malik for us. Hopefully, he goes way South then.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Doesn't change the fact||
that local police never questioned Winston before dropping charges, does it?
|1 day 20 hours ago||Um...||
the local police did not investigate anything, even though the woman's rape kit was positive. The police and prosecutors did not even interview Winston. Imagine how many people are accused of rape, yet the police do not even question them, but drop the case (hint: nobody).
He may be innocent, but he's damn lucky.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Exactly.||
Who knows at this point. Bball is all about star players.
|3 days 39 sec ago||Sparty 100%||
I hate OSU much more.
|4 days 12 hours ago||No Grammar popo||
But that's why the SEC won the last 7 NC's.
|4 days 19 hours ago||Say we do go 8-4||
We lose to MSU, Maryland, OSU, and somebody else, or that we even go 9-3.
Isn't that kind of what we expected when we hired Hoke (I'm sure Brian has a bunch of articles about the senior void, the terrible 2010 recruiting class...).
That makes 2015 the year Hoke really should be judged (5 years, with the staff he wants, not one forced upon him, like GERG on RR).
I think Borges made a ton of mistakes this year, is arrogant and resistant to change, but if Hoke wants to keep him, fine. The B1G is bad enough for us to win 8/9 games next year and then to give Hoke the opportunity to win the B1G championship in 2015 (will not happen in 2014, playing at ND, OSU, and MSU).
|4 days 19 hours ago||Great point.||
I'm normally anti Fred Jackson, but that's certainly a valid point.I guess my beef is that Michigan hasn't had successful NFL backs in a while (and how the hell is Mike Cox in the NFL and couldn't play a snap at Michgan)?
|4 days 20 hours ago||Couldn't we at least get a FJ retirement or something?||
|5 days 2 hours ago||Those are sweet,||
but remind me of a loss :(
|5 days 13 hours ago||Ohio scheduled||
Buffalo, SDSU, and Florida AM who are all terrible. They controlled that for sure.
|5 days 19 hours ago||No it simply means||
They had an easy schedule. Other than Wisconsin, did they even beat a ranked team?
|5 days 19 hours ago||Ohio beat nobody good||
If auburn wins the sec championship, they would have beat Alabama, South Carolina, A&M, Arkansas, and Georgia. That's damn impressive.
|5 days 19 hours ago||That's the talent differential. Period.||
This is why we need guys like peppers and sadly, hand. OSU has these guys in droves, we are getting them next year. I love countess, but he's unlikely an NFL guy. Same with Ramon Taylor.
|6 days 10 hours ago||Brian, I havent met you, or||
Brian, I havent met you, or tweeted you ot emailed you, but I agree 100% with your tweets. Keep up the fight! GO BLUE!
|6 days 11 hours ago||Saban messed that up||
The kickerbwas a true freshman backup, because the starter missed you FGs. Askingbtgat guy to kick a 57 yarder to win the Iorn Bowl is way too much
|6 days 18 hours ago||Gardner is a better version of Denard||
Yes. I said it. Abd mean it.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Balls> cock||
Period. Go blue.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Exactly. Give it to them||
Devin TD +2. Only chance.
|6 days 19 hours ago||I know. And||
Borges did a solid job.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Should be kicked out||
Ohio #1 took a flat out swing.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Fire Mattison!||
No, but this will screw up the dudes word count and may be a reverse jinx.

And not show his lack of speed.
