Absolutely - that's my point. But not understanding the importance of "brand" ... seems slightly short sighted. We're on the same page here.

Feel free to explain further. How much have you studied about "brands" to date?
I'd love to hear your defintion and understand how it differs from identity or reputation.

Agree 100% - the AD's idea of "brand" got mixed up with the what the university should stand for.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Let's be Honest||
I love Harbaugh, but without a "brand," a degree from Michigan or any other named institution would be worthless. That's why the school you choose matters - its reputation, or functionally, it's brand.
That said, with regard to Brandon shenanigans, he had a messed up interpretation of what might add to brand value and specifically how that pertained to our athletic department.
So while I like the sentiment of criticizing the bullshit that the last AD rained down upon us, I am absolutely 100% inarguably a massive fan of the University of Michigan BRAND. Any alumnus who argues otherwise has something twisted.

Usually I go with Dunkin Donuts (brewed at home).
Also, in certain spots in the midwest (I know near Cincinnati for sure), White Castle actually sells coffee by the pound and the producer is actually a brand called Wallingford. Some of the best out there - you might be able to pick it up at your local Meijer...

The brats go wherever I go. They've been in random spots around Ann Arbor, Madison, Minneapolis, LA (among others) and Chicago these days...
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Boom||
Brats boiled in beer with onions & garlic, topped with a mix of onions and red/yellow bell peppers cooked down until fully caramelized. Finish the brats by searing them on a grill or in a hot sautee pan before serving and serve on a well-buttered, toasted bun.
Nothing says gameday quite like it.
Oh, and more beer for drinking.

Losing his job is going to cost him a lot more than $600.
Smart move, buddy.

This whole thread is just making my day better. Much appreciated.

Not even embarrassed.
Good for Rich. Seems like has a good thing going for himself down there though if he stuck with WVA, who knows what he could have done.

Yup. That was the secret of the PS4 launch.
They introduced their own Xbox Live but no one was paying attention because of the price difference with XB1 and concern about DRM.

But a special shout out to the drumline for their cadence, the walk to the stadium from Revelli and the step show in general. If you haven't been... go.

With the guy who had the same injury but didn't die, they 100% telegraphed that the shotgun wounds wouldnt be fateful no matter how it looked in the episode. I was 0% surprised when he survived, but I didn't mind either because I guessed it pretty quickly.

Thanks for posting - pretty solid bit of programming.

|9 weeks 4 days ago||Sheffield's||
Have to say that the brisket at Sheffield's is pretty top-notch. Agree that it probably isn't in the same league as mosf of the texas BBQ, but they do a nice job there, the prices aren't too bad, there's plenty of good beer and they have a nice little patio area.
Their other food / BBQ is pretty good as well. Make sure you give the Carolina sauce a shot - sometimes you have to ask for it specifically.
Check it out if you're in Chicago and you haven't been.

Ha, I doubt it.
But I wouldn't be surprised if the recipes for the bottled sauce vs. what you get at the restaurant are different in the near future...

Headed to Ann Arbor for a buddy's bachelor weekend for the first time in a year.

Kerry Coombs is the worst. Just ask anyone who lived in Cincinnati who wasn't a Colerain die-hard when he was coaching there.
The worst. It was such an OSU move to hire that ass.

HOW is WD not hired at this point?
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Interesting||
Regardless of occasion, camp or otherwise, I don't think I can recall seeing a coach wear the gear of a competitive apparel sponsor. Something generic... maybe.
This might be some type of negotiation ploy given what Hackett's been saying about his expectations for the next deal.

Headed to Vancouver for the first time for a buddy's bachelor weekend. En route right now.
Any recommendations / suggestions while there?
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Personally Prefer Michigan||
Personally, prefer Michigan, but the example in the OP is awful. Obviously needs to be centered and in our font. Has a classic look to it.
I do agree that if the Block M weren't raised, it would be much better.
This does seem like an interesting topic for an actual poll vs. 100 one to two word responses.

Harbaugh / Stanford went for 2 up 48-21 late in the game. The try failed, and they ended up winning 55-21.
Much Bo. Yes, please.
