I'd take him back in a New York second as long as Casteel comes with him this time. After all - he IS a "Michigan man" now so we'd be allowed to hire him now wouldn't we?

Very well said. I agree.
|3 hours 54 min ago||And who exactly in this||
And who exactly in this scenario is handling the negotiations on our end with Harbaugh? Hoke? Brandon? Our new President? Don't think so.
|8 hours 19 min ago||Might want to unload that||
Might want to unload that Direct TV stock right about now. The NFL ticket price and subscriber base is about to go way, way down.
|8 hours 20 min ago||So let me get this straight.||
So let me get this straight. Hoke's a "good coach" and all true Michigan men should be "riding with him" right?
Then who in the fuck decided to start the unprepared Morris over the QB that Ray thinks would've given us a better chance to win?
That makes zero sense to me. Or in Ray's eyes do good coaches start the wrong QBs?
I'm real confused.

Jesus I sure hope not and I dont think so (cause I really, really hate them) but if I did then I have blotted that out from memory entirely.
But if I did it would be sort of like what I've done in terms of remembering the the relative size of the first chick I banged in college. She was, as I recall, a rather stout woman.

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.
|9 hours 11 min ago||Has anybody else gone numb to||
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.
|13 hours 33 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.
|15 hours 19 min ago||Ok i tried to sign it but||
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?
|1 day 2 hours ago||Certainly bears little||
Certainly bears little resemblance to the version of events Hoke's been trying unsuccessfully to sell.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Agreed but he'll still suck||
Agreed but he'll still suck though.
|1 day 6 hours 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 8 hours 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 10 hours 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 10 hours 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 11 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 11 hours ago||Yes he is||
It just might not be from Brandon. DB's replacement might be doing that dirty work.
|1 day 11 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.
