For the record, I 100% agree--there is no massive football program and all that comes with it without a rabid fan base that is willing to part with many many hard earned dollars to watch and support the program. I also know nothing about the opinions of any individual players on Michigan's football team, but it would be fair to say that sometimes athletes feel entitled to support that they probably should not take for granted.
|5 hours 47 min ago||Exactly...I'm sure, for||
Exactly...I'm sure, for instance, football players are at worst indifferent to GA seating, dynamic pricing for games, issues with the Victors Club and ticket wait list, uniformz, and (hi Brian) Special K. I'm sure that if you asked players, students should show up in droves and on time, and season ticket holders should support the program. I don't want to make the players sound insensitive, but they have very little interaction with (non-Special K) fan experience issues.

Are you sure? At most schools, the SAAC is chosen by coaches or individual teams. This is different from the group(s) Brandon put together about GA seating and other ticket issues.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Agreed. I served on the SAAC||
Agreed. I served on the SAAC of a I-AA school many years ago. There, a few sports other than football were king (and queen, I suppose). The SAAC was built more to engage athletes with the AD and to resolve AD-wide issues (academic support, opportunities, etc.). The idea wasn't to vote on capital projects or budgets--ha, as if any AD wants student input into that--it was to engage athletes.

Speaking of "Dominos", I hope Michigan doesn't run a "we know we used to suck" ad campaign after Brandon leaves like his last gig did.

Can we hire Snoop Doggy Dogg (or Snoop Lion or whatever he calls himself now)? He has extensive experience in Pete Carroll's USC program.

In fairness (although I think you and 99% of those reading this thread know this...), I think that Space Coyote never remotely considered the Kiffin option either...and based on the tongue in cheek bullet point list, he likely still doesn't.

We will know Hoke is feeling the tranquility of inescapable pressure if he shows up to his press conference wearing a headset--not unlike Pelini's uniform modeling or cat...

A twist on your #1: we (as Michigan fans) are not allowed to criticize or mock the actual, reported, or even suspected improprieties at other schools because we are not winning (particularly against those schools) on the field. A criticism is valid or not without regard to who says it. At times on this board, it goes way beyond weeding out the sour grapes...

That's a lot of referenda...the electorate may well be divided and tired by the last and most important of those.

Ok that is funny...sorta reminds me of when RR was first coming on and we heard all about Barwis, and some Buckeye on the radio (Chris Spielman, I think) said that the S&C would be a huge improvement because Gittleson was sending the O-Linemen to pilates classes at Curves.

Frank Clark penalty was not the greatest, but in terms of coaching decisions, nothing bad stood out. In fact, there seemed to be a whole lot to like.
