“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”

I FUCKING HATE THESE GODDAMN MOTHERFUCKING "APPRECIATION" THREADS WITH THE BURNING HOT FURY OF A THOUSAND SUNS.
AND WHILE WE'RE AT IT I HATE OPEN LETTERS TOO.

Has anybody else gone numb to these reports by now? It's like I'm having an out-of-body experience watching somebody repeatidly pummel the defenseless, empty shell of my Michigan fandom.

I would also suggest your camera follow him around a week of practice. That might be even more insightful.

In all due respect the same group of people complaining that they have to PAY for tickets to enter the stadium should not be surprised or upset at the rest of us complaining that Brandon has made those same tickets & gameday experience unrealisticly expense and artificial.
|4 hours 47 min ago||In all seriousness this to me||
In all seriousness this to me is a pretty damn big deal to me anyways. For Canham's widow to speak out like this is yet another major shot in the war against Brandon. Don't discount the reverance that Canham's name still carries inside the Athletic Department and with the "old guard" like me - despite Brandon's efforts to kill all links to our past.

Called out for what? Liking Brandon? That's his opinion and he's entitled to it.

Ok i tried to sign it but it's not letting me create an ID. Does that mean the diploma I've got at home from 1981 is a fake?
And all those classes........

Omg that's hilarious. Looks like Dave is now taking his marketing ideas from kidnappers.

"Missile lock on you two boneheads. Just running it by the lawyers and accountants."
I've read that comment now about 50 times. And it's made me laugh now about 50 times.

Hey look - it's Michigan hockey jersey wearing Jesus!
Seriously guys - we have GOT to fund a kickstarter to buy him some new gear. Are Brian and WD about the same size? Maybe he's got some surplus stuff he'd like to donate?
|18 hours 7 min ago||Certainly bears little||
Certainly bears little resemblance to the version of events Hoke's been trying unsuccessfully to sell.
|21 hours 46 min ago||Agreed but he'll still suck||
Agreed but he'll still suck though.
|22 hours 11 min ago||So now we find out Brandons||
So now we find out Brandons was making dumb-ass moves even before we learned what a enourmous, fan-alianating butt wipe he really is.
FWIW I've listened to Sumlin speak a bit and he's pretty sharp. Trying to imagine how and where the interview went south. Probably here...
DB: "Yes Kevin all that's fine and good but have you ever coached or played at Meeechigan before today? And how many times do we say "hail" in the Victors?"
Sumlin: "No and I have no idea"
DB: "Alecia - can you show Mr Sumlin how to get his parking ticket validated. And bring in Brady please."

Let's ask the captains. I'm sure they're on top of it.

I'm not a mod or anything but sure, go ahead-fire when ready soldier. I'm sure it'll be just fine.
I mean it's in a thread with more than a bit of political undertones. What could possibly go wrong?
|1 day 9 min ago||Exactly. Now we seem to be||
Exactly. Now we seem to be searching for the area directly below the lowest spot below the area right underneath and just a bit under rock bottom.
I cant wait to find out what tomorrow might bring.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Money quote||
"On Monday afternoon, Brandon allowed his head football coach to step to a press conference podium in an absolute no-win situation. Hoke was unprepared, unsupported and left there to face live bullets.
On Monday afternoon, Brandon threw Hoke -- a man he hired in 2011 -- under the bus, and hung him out to dry."
This is what is so galling to me. As somebody who's spent his entire adult life in management this is what has absolute struck me about Brandon during this episode. His cowardly abdication of any visable support of Hoke and his leaving him on an island to fend for himself. It's wrong.
If you feel that strongly that what Hoke did was wrong grow a pair and fire him. Dont torture the guy by making him look like an absolute idiot in front of the entire country like he did yesterday. Can you imagine just how much Hoke must've DREADED getting up there knowing what was coming? And can you imagine how embarrassed and humiliated he must've felt after he learned what was coming out in Brandon's letter?
Look I want the guy fired like everybody else. But i dont think he deserves to be fucking put through the wringer emotionally on his way out. It's not fair to him and it's not fair to the team itself.
|1 day 1 hour ago||This actually pisses me off||
This actually pisses me off even more. As a father it breaks my heart to think that this kid, who would fucking take a bullet for Michigan, got put in a position to fail, wasnt protected by his Head Coach, and now feels responsible for the shit storm that he had nothing to do with creating.
He reminds of when you hear kids apologizing for their parents divorce. It's heartbreaking.

That's a fantastic letter OP. Well written and you can tell it was written from the heart. Whether he reads it or not is not under your control obviously but I think you did a great job articulating what you and thousands of us are feeling right now.
|1 day 2 hours ago||So did anybody follow up on||
So did anybody follow up on the "I didnt talk to Brandon" comment yesterday? Or did Hoke simply say "Oh.......you meant THAT Dave Brandon. My bad. I thought you fellas were asking about a different Dave Brandon. Sorry!"
|1 day 2 hours ago||Yes he is||
It just might not be from Brandon. DB's replacement might be doing that dirty work.
|1 day 3 hours ago||This^||
I think this might be the second time in almost five years I've said "this" but THIS.
Well said Dragonchild. Extremely well said.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Not worthy of it's own post||
Not worthy of it's own post IMO but Mike & Mike spent about 15 minutes on it this morning (again) with the general consensus that Hoke fucked up because Morris must've lied to him about his head not being hurt and that it wasnt that big of a deal really but it's become one cause Michigan sucks so bad right now and everybody's pissed/unhappy with Hoke and the team's record.
This baby is NOT going away anytime soon.
|1 day 4 hours ago||You are absolutely||
You are absolutely right.
"University spokesman Rick Fitzgerald said Schlissel would be involved in a communications meeting Tuesday morning, and that the handling of the Morris situation will be discussed"
That's all that's happening. That's not a BOR meeting to the best of my knowledge.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Given that it was my comment||
Given that it was my comment on the head injury that he initially responded to questioning whether there really WAS a concussion or not and given that he dearly loves to nit-pick and be critical of virtually everything I post I find the irony in Brandon's admission of Shane's injury last night most amusing.
Not that I think it will change anything but maybe, just maybe, he wont' have a knee-jerk reaction to criticize/question every single thing I post going forward.
|1 day 15 hours ago||You or I can do way better||
You or I can do way better than the Raiders. That's a football organization that Hoke & Brandon can feel superior to.
BTW - I've never heard of Dennis Allen before just now and only know him cause he's the ex-head coach of the Raiders.
So........can we hire him?
|1 day 15 hours ago||(No subject)||
|1 day 15 hours ago||Yes he should No that's not||
Yes he should
No that's not their job (although they did try to "encourage" Hoke to take a time out it seems)
Now that i've answered your questions I've got one for you. Did you really think this post all the way through before hitting the "save" button? I mean, this question has been asked (and answered) and 500 times today in 50 different threads so I'm trying to figure out exactly why you created this.
Did you just wake up or something?
