I can't remember the last time I watched an NBA game. I swore off the NBA after the stones were boned by Shaq and the heat in the eastern conference finals. I saw game 3 from the rafters at the palace.

right... I guess I will take you at your word Sir Knight of the Internet...

the move actually makes me hate him less as well, but hate ESPN and our mass media culture more.

I got your point the entire time. Thanks for the insults BTW (typical mgoblog immaturity). I have HUGE problem with people telling me what I SHOULD believe or not. I will look at the data and metrics myself and come to my own conclusion. The Fox News'ing and ESPN'ing of America is a major problem in our society. Too few in our country use the 6lb muscle between their ears.

So all of those metrics is supposed to make me like him....no thank you. I couldn't care if he found a vaccine for HIV and cleared gridlock in congress.

I know, but that is the tone of your message to anyone criticising dear ol Lebron.

I guess I HAVE to like Lebron because YOU said so. So that settles that issue.

Nope. I will retract my statement and admit I was wrong. Unlike the rest of America I actually allow data and evidence to influence my beliefs, not blind hope.

as opposed to the Hoke fans on here...two way street. Like I said above the results have been trending downwards for Hoke. If Hoke has a rebound year I will retract my statement.

yep, let's see. If Hoke has a rebound year, I will retract my statement.

that sounds a lot like biology to me...an alpha with high evolutionary fitness and ability to attract a mate to pass down his genes for future generations.

yet the bulk of Rich's class has the last MI BCS win since 2002 something Hoke cannot claim with his shitty recruiting.

Fair enough.. However, I also believe ticket prices and the attractiveness of 60 in LED's in air conditioning has a major effect on attendance. Not just at Michigan, but at most universities. Which gets to my point that Brandon's policies are not helping to combat the attractiveness of the home environment. My opinion is if you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem.
Basketball seating is a different animal than football. Dave didn't scrap GA student seating but stuck with it. It became streamlined unlike football (a logistical nightmare). Yes, winning helps.

False, I would still HATE the man.

Your third point is a complete gneralization. Not every student (myself included when I was a student and still don't as a young alum) parties like a drunken sailor. Dave's GA policy made it as difficult as possible for students to enter the stadium. The logistics of the GA policy was complete bunk to the point where it was scrapped halfway through the season. Finally, the about face Brandon performed after the season scrapping the entire GA policy while also raising ticket prices for students speaks to his lack of transperancy to have the students involved in the football experience. Sorry, I am calling BS on your post.

while Hoke's best season and BCS win was the one with 3/4's Rich Rod's recruiting and 1/4's of Lloyd's...

Sounds about the same as my interactions with Brandon on the hockey side of things. The Dekers board met with one of his many Office of Development yes men. The yes man went on and on about how they would do anything to help booster clubs like the Dekers. Yet, here we are in 2014 and the Dekers are the last of the athletic booster clubs after the softball Diamond Club went under recently. Dave decides to do the exact opposite of helping us out, relegating us to a tiny corner of Yost and charging us the full cost of advertising inside Yost while giving the family discount the University Health System and other preferred organizations. Our entire goal is to raise funds for an endowed hockey scholarship. Pretty much everything we do now except for the annual post-season banquet is unofficial. Dave killed our board and jumbotron advertising, 50/50 (while sparty's and the Ohio State's equivalent organizations continues there 50/50's), and took over the homecoming hockey rally. We were willing to work the athletics support staff and Office and Development in any capacity necessary.

I can guarantee that I did not drop my season tickets due to Wins/Losses. Dave constantly raising ticket prices did my family in. It is no longer affordable for a secondary educator salary. With my low opinion of Brandon I would rather give my money to a scalper on gameday for most likely half the cost.

You don't think Lucifer is making all of the ASPCA commercials?

Ok serious post. My issue is Dave's lack of long term vision when it comes to donors. Why piss off your younger alums and current students at the sacrifice of older top 1% donors. My generation as we age will gradually become your major donors. My generation does not forget how we are treated. I have already shifted my giving towards the academic side. Good luck getting the younger alums and fans to come back when he has treated us like complete crap in favor of his corporate buddies.
