I'm not saying you should feel bad for being ignorant, but your comparisons aren't even close to sensible - NYC is about 400+ times bigger than Newtown and San Bernadino is probably 10 times bigger. Newtown is about the size of Birmingham, so it likely would have impacted him. Some of us only read the comments once a day or less, since we have, ya know - jobs and lives and whatnot...

I guess because you put question marks on a screen shot, you must be smarter than Baxter and Harbaugh. What point are you trying to prove? Congratulations - you are the greatest Monday morning coach to have ever not coached.

So I just googled Dave Brandon wondering what would come up on the front page (thinking that the search results must be awful), and his wikipedia page comes up first. I read through it and thought - this is totally edited by a Brandon intern to whitewash the negative info. I looked at the edit history and found edits by a "janabrandon"
and looked at some of her edits, one of which was changing his AD info (see the AD section) from:
essentially deleting all the negative content. It reverted back to the original for "conflict of interest," but has since been cleaned up again by a different username. Of course it's possible that someone just made up that user account, but it seems highly unlikely that it's just some random person cleaning up negative comments on brandon's wiki
Someone with more time and wikipedia knowledge should look into this because it's just funny and so Brandon to be editing his own wikipedia page...

...which is that Harbuagh recognized the talent before the services, not that he got a bump because Harbaugh offered him. But by all means, be condescending when you completely missed the point.

..that might be the case, because it seems unlikely to go from brand new to posting enough in one month to get thousands of points (even when you're getting super-negged on every post). i bet thanksgiving dinner is fun at that dude's house.

I and most others that have been here since the RR days make the exact same arguments we did as Rodriguez was being fired. Just because half the fan base was wrong and can't let it go, doesn't mean our arguments (made in 2010) are revisionist. RR never had the support that Hoke did, period. I don't see how that can even be argued. And talking about RR bad recruiting is like saying hoke is a bad recruiter because of this year. Michigan recruits people on it's own, if the fans and former players are behind it. None of it really matters, since it can't be changed now, but it was obvious from day one that hiring Rodriguez was a long term play that the get-off-my-lawn crew cratered. Had Brandon said Rodriguez was getting another year during his final season (as he did for hoke last year), 2011 probably would have shown similar results and we'd be competing for titles right now because he'd have been able to recruit. Instead, hoke.

Is anyone "attacking" non-revenue sports? If football isn't making money, there are no non-revenue sports, period. While gouging fans now may help the current non-revenue athletes, destroying the fan base (football) that supports the non-revenue sports jeopardizes the future of all these sports. Everyone wins if we keep the football program healthy. I doubt there are many people here who don't want the best for every student athlete at Michigan, it's just that supporting Brandon because of the current upgrades is worse for all non-revenue sports long term, without question.

It just makes you look ignorant - I hope you aren't a UM grad. You should realize that there are probably hundreds of people on this board with family members on the autism spectrum.

..but at the same time, we should probably remember that the coaches and everyone else inside the walls of Fort Schembechler are using the negative press/sentiment as a motivational tool. The us against them mentality is ok with me if it helps them win Saturday. Still unfortunate, but the kid is 19 - perhaps we should cut him some slack?

and this is an honest question - do you work in the athletic department or have a personal connection to someone who does? i've been on mgblog forever and i can't recall seeing more counterintuitive/defensive posts from one person in a two week span since i've been here.

Just curious - do these guys (or their families) have to pay to travel to all these camps or do the sponsors cover some of the costs? Seems like it would get pretty expensive to be flying all over the country every other weekend.

Was more embarassing to me than Pop Evil, despite my intense dislike for Pop Evil. At least the Pop Evil song is unique to Michigan and terrible.

It seems to me that if the local media did what they did to Rodriguez after his arrival, they would have a field day with Les Miles. Can you imagine the Freep stories assasinating his character for page views next August 25th? I would imagine MSC and DB want someone with a spotless record after what we've been through the last couple years. Miles is most definitely not that guy.

I could be way off, but I think one of the biggest advantages stability at qb brings opposing defenses is that they can memorize general %'s based on formation. So if Tate and Denard run the same plays, the defense would be prepared for the general plays, but not have the advantage of knowing "hey they're in X formation with X personnel, which means that 65% of the time they're running play X."
