I don't know...I think it is a great way to honor great players of years past. Much better than retiring a number, in my opinion. On the other hand, for those who believe it only works if the player today is equally as good as the original "legend," I get why they wouldn't like the concept.

I think the compliance department is still looking into how Bobby Bowden ended up with a charge from Ms. Priss' Cat Emporium...I mean, does he look like the kind of guy who would buy from a dad gum cat emporium?!?

I sit at home on the couch, next to my wife. She starts asking if it is over yet toward the end of the first quarter but is generally a good sport about my Michigan fandom.

Wikipedia unreliability duly noted but apparently Clemson's head coach (again apples to oranges) promised several recruits the first carry in their first game: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Harper
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Apples and oranges and all||
Apples and oranges and all that but wasn't there a brouhaha several years ago when Clemson followed through on a recruiting promise to a running back named Harper that the first play in the first game of his true freshman season would be a handoff to him?

|4 weeks 13 hours ago||For the record, I 100%||
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.
|4 weeks 16 hours 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.
|4 weeks 1 day 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...
