Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

Hoke is not wrong to focus on a character-first approach to coaching, and his emphasis on helping all of his players to graduate and, through football, understand the values of toughness & hard work and generally prepare for life as young men. This was also the way Bo approached the game, and I think we can all take pride in saying that this approach embodies doing things the Michigan way. If the cost of doing so is an extra couple losses, I am personally okay with that transaction.

"Almost everyone here"? From someone who wants to see Dave gone, I have gotten the opposite impression from the boards, as it appears it's the pro-DB crowd negging and responding to the anti-Dave'rs out there. This thread alone, with 150 responses, is from just a couple weeks ago: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/dave-brandon-appreciation-thread But that's just my opinion, man.

But I'm glad to have the writers' perspectives, which I generally find to be reasonable. No one forces you to read this.

Exactly. That hypothetical is an entirely flat slippery slope that can be treated just like the scholarships are - capable of manipulation by unsavory types (ie over signers) but otherwise capable of protection by basic rule.

Mods: Please don't delete this thread. Even if it is duplicative, this is the sort of thing that's worthy of multiple threads. It's moments like these (see also: Brock Mealer) that make me truly proud to be a Wolverine.

Not cool. It's the only paywalled content of the site all year - just support the blog, man.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||You are confusing what is||
You are confusing what is done with the bottom line with the focus on the bottom line. DB is attempting to maximize revenue in all areas which bring in revenue, i.e., football, basketball, to an extent hockey, Big House events/tours, etc. The nonrevenue sports are in comparison where that money goes. Under the athletic department model I see him treating the nonrevenue sports as the shareholders, putting the value earned from the revenue into those. You can disagree with me about this, and in a very narrow sense yes you're right he could instead simply ignore the other sports and somehow find another NCAA compliant way to spend that money, but in my mind it's still entirely bottom-line oriented. Why else charge four dollars plus for a water at the Big House, bring on things like "the Michigan Minnesota game officially brought to you by today's game day sponsor, Hyundai" and try to charge everyone for seat cushions?

I'm not sure his heart is in the right place. He seems entirely bottom-line oriented (at the expense of the fans), and it appears to me that, based on this apparent lack of understanding or appreciation for providing the Michigan community atmosphere (vs a "mini Super Bowl" every week), his 20-whatever years in corporate boardrooms have overridden whatever Michigan-first values he might have learned in his four years under Bo.

Right and that's why I phrased it as such- the penultimate episodes have historically, IMO, been the very best. Hence, with those elevated expectations, I found it to be disappointing. It was, to me, an hour long battle who've I've basically already seen in LOTR. Just my opinion, but as an Ep 9 it felt lacking.

IMO: That was the worst (seasonal) penultimate episode of the series yet. Instead of being the Wall's version of Blackwater, it felt like I was just watching the end of LOTR: The Two Towers again.
