I've had the feeling for a while that Webb is in the Brandon corner and blind to reason. Just from the way he's reported everything from the past few months, seems like he's put a little bit of spin on each story.

Is the Peppers issue strictly an injury or should we all run around panicking and search for our childhood blankets to comfort us and assure us that everything will someday be alright again?
|4 days 15 min ago||Figuring out which job offer||
Figuring out which job offer puts me on the career path that allows the family to move back to Ann Arbor or to Minneapolis in three years, also which house to buy to the same ends.
Milwaukee is great but it's not a family-raising city.

|1 week 4 days ago||Bradley chose Ricardo Clark||
Bradley chose Ricardo Clark in direct opposition to beckerman, a cornerstone of our last WC team.
Bradley had young guys like Dempsey and Eddie Johnson as well as legends like bocanegra, Cherundolo... Not to even bring up landy cakes in his prime. Klinsmann has a bigger talent pool but I wouldn't say his top 23 are markedly better than Bradleys
|1 week 4 days ago||He has the best touch of||
He has the best touch of anyone on the field right now, and had the vision on his assist and multiple other passes. Dude is going to be real good.

Yedlin is going to be a star

The way this team plays is so much more fun to watch than a Bob Bradley team. It's not a talent thing either. Klinsy is what we were all going he'd be.

Yes it is

I can confirm this is him. I got it a few years back from an insider.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||At this point does it seem to||
At this point does it seem to anyone else like Brandon is trying to position himself to get the biggest buyout? By continuing to deny fault and attempting to dismiss the issue as unimportant, maybe he's digging in his heels since he knows the university is about to drop the hammer.
Or maybe I'm just hoping this is the case.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed they are not||
Agreed they are not independent of each other, but I'm not hoping we achieve the global optimum from this situation. I know that's not likely. I'll be happy if we achieve A even if it is not achieved in a way that optimally affects B (A=decision on AD...B=short term football effect)
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I don't care how it affects||
I don't care how it affects recruiting, the current team, or the coaching search. At this point it's about getting the decision right for the long-term future of the university of Michigan. Based solely on his statement,I trust Dr. Schlissel will approach the decision with professionalism and integrity.

i never said it was as valid. Todd Howard, and others, using the "Ive been in the trenches so I know" is an attempt to say Howard is right on EVERY point and my oppinions have zero validity.
This mentality eliminates all discourse. I bet you have a lot you can teach me about what value a coach brings, but Ill also bet that your experience gives you a certain bias. Its not a bad thing, its just a thing. Acknowleding bias is a very important part of civil discourse.
To go into a discussion with a predisposition to discount anything I say because I havent done it is dumb,

Finally, someone responds to the situation with class.
Im glad he didn't address punishing any indivdyals, because thats not the point right now. Priority 1A is making sure this never happens again.
|3 weeks 16 hours ago||But the attempt to discount||
But the attempt to discount everything I say because I wasnt part of a DI program is horse shit. And athletes do it all the time. It's annoying.
Thats like saying the only people worth commenting on healthcare reform are doctors and nurses. The only people allowed to write book reviews are published authors. By discrediting someone's point of view due to lack of a specific kind of experience is absolutely asanine.
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||I absolutely despise when||
I absolutely despise when athletes take the stance that their anecdotal experience trumps all logic and statistical reasoning.
Having a beer with a guy does not qualify you better than me to judge someone's ability to coach.

T minus two minutes until John U Bacon denies these rumors
|3 weeks 2 days ago||If the reports of John being||
If the reports of John being the voice of reason in the ray rice saga are true, it would be indicative of him being the high character coach so many of us here prefer. He also beat jim on the biggest stage. This is wonderful news.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I couldn't disagree more with||
I couldn't disagree more with you. This is already a PR nightmare. Not firing hoke is even worse at this point of damage control.
If he keeps his job the university is going to lose so much credibility
Edit-this us supposed to be in response to the guy above who thinks hoke keeps his job

This is so wrong. Kirk ferentz is the clear and obvious choice

Have final round of interviews for my dream job today, Barcelona is looking as good as they did under Guardiola. Tea leaves suggest the sacking of DB and Hoke... Overall I'm pretty happy.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe someone in charge of||
Maybe someone in charge of ESPN programming is a Michigan fan and is worried that not enough people realize how much of a bumbling idiot Brady Hoke is. Maybe the Michigan fan ESPN programming dude is trying to Push the court of public opinion into such a conviction of Hoke's buffoonery that DB has no choice but to fire Hoke.
I still would not be surprised for DB to extend Hoke rather than fire him. I have less faith in Brandon than hoke at this point.

Did Michael Ferns just recommit or something?

Ye$. For the same reasons Theo Epstein took the cubs job. The infrastructure is here.
I really don't think the last coaching search was exhaustive. I think DB choose hoke before considering anyone else. I think if you open the job up to real competition,. We get a competent coach. Stop trying to limit the candidates to legacy coaches.
