I would say there is plenty of cause to fire Brandon over this shit show and his previous horrible "miscommunications".

Coordinators cannot call timeouts. Only man on the sideline that could was Hoke.

Thats all good and fair, but Nuss cant call a timeout. Nor can Mattison. Only the head coach can call a timeout.

Probably tried making the medical staff lie about it, makes sense to why it took two fucking days.
|14 hours 6 min ago||He also tried to downplay||
He also tried to downplay said serious injury by putting the "mild" tag on it.

Wouldnt surprise me if both were full of shit.
|14 hours 12 min ago||Dave Brandon can still fuck||
Dave Brandon can still fuck himself. Trying to downplay a concussion.
|14 hours 39 min ago||Anyone who follows Brandon on||
Anyone who follows Brandon on Twitter notice immediately after he released the statement to the press that he started tweeting about field hockey and softball? No mentionings of the statement of course.
|14 hours 47 min ago||The end of this statement||
The end of this statement read to me like Cartman in the principal's office saying. "Im soooooorrryyyy Kyyyyyllllleeeee".
|14 hours 49 min ago||He was forced to admit Morris||
He was forced to admit Morris suffered a concussion. No doubt he tried to get the medical staff to lie, which is why this took over two fucking days to get released. And at 1 am of course. Dave Brandon doesnt know good PR if it came up and punched him in the face.
|19 hours 37 min ago||That's what happens when you||
That's what happens when you commit to a coach and not the school. Best of luck.
|19 hours 57 min ago||I think/hope Brandon is too||
I think/hope Brandon is too busy writting his resignation letter.
|20 hours 39 min ago||Apparently Nuss was trying to||
Apparently Nuss was trying to tell Morris to go down to the ground so the atletic trainers would go get him. Morris waved him off, and Hoke let that happen.
|20 hours 41 min ago||He's normally pretty active||
He's normally pretty active on the ol' Twittah Machine. Looking at his feed, he normally doesn't go more than a day without tweeting something out about some Michigan sport.
The dude hasn't even been seen by anyone since shortly before Hoke's post-game presser. You would think the athletic director would be right there with Hoke today when it is in regards to the safety of a player.
|21 hours 51 min ago||What else are they going to||
What else are they going to do? Hire Nuss as interim and see what he can do. Meanwhile, you have a three month head start on the rest of the coaching search, unlike 2011 where Brandon dragged his feet THE ENTIRE TIME.
|21 hours 53 min ago||Bates IIRC has the Bo||
Bates IIRC has the Bo recommendation in his book. Said hed make a great AD, and would be a great UM AD.
|21 hours 56 min ago||Well it wasnt exactly hard to||
Well it wasnt exactly hard to name Manuel and Bates as potential candidates. Brian named them like two weeks ago on the podcast.
|22 hours 3 min ago||I hope he is right, because||
I hope he is right, because John U bacon says his sources disagree.
|22 hours 39 min ago||This is the site that from||
This is the site that from what I saw first reported the Nuss hire. I think they have an idea whats going on. And Gregg Henson speculated that Brandon could be working on a resignation because he has not been heard from since Saturday.

Thank fucking God.

The ref said no you cant use a time out? Is this guy fucking serious?
For starters you clearly see the ref on tape ask "You want a time out?" He isnt saying "Now you can buy a timeout".
So many follow up questions can be made by this statement.
Was Shane tested at all for a concussion?
If you took Shane out because of his leg injury, why did you leave him in after his leg got hurt TWICE and only yank him a play after the hit to the head?
Why are you seemingly downplaying this major issue by stating it is "kind of" becoming an issue? Is player safety only "kind of" and issue to you?
|1 day 12 hours ago||Honestly I think if Morris||
Honestly I think if Morris didnt have a concussion, they wouldve come out and said it almost immediately. Since the head shot is the focal point of most the outrage this weekend, I find it pretty telling that they put out statements in regards to this outrage, but fail to address, or even mention ONCE anything related to the focal point of the outrage.

Question 3 is what I want asked.
|1 day 15 hours ago||So 1971 is...43 years? We||
So 1971 is...43 years? We didn't lose 3 games before October in 43 years.
Rich Rodriguez in 2008 and 2009 didn't enter October with 3 losses. Now, is this team as bad or worst than the 2008 team? Probably not, but we will see the rest of the way. How they've looked against big conference teams doesn't give me much hope for wins 3 and 4.
|1 day 16 hours ago||You are kind of sounding like||
You are kind of sounding like people that want Hoke fired over this (piled on top of the shit show that has been the last two years) think Hoke is some menacing super villain intentionally leaving Morris in there, rubbing his hands together and laughing menacingly about the pending demise of his quarterback.
|1 day 16 hours ago||When player management and||
When player management and safety is clearly compromised in this shit storm of a season, that is more than just cause for a mid season firing. Fucking Weis probably has more sense than Hoke does and he got fired today.

After watching the video again:
|1 day 18 hours ago||It really starts to make||
It really starts to make sense the rumor of Hoke and Nuss arguing in the locker room in front of Brandon. I bet Nuss was pretty salty if he tried getting Morris out ASAP and Hoke overruled him.
|1 day 18 hours ago||As angelique points out, Hoke||
As angelique points out, Hoke doesnt even mention the word concussion, and Hoke, or whoever wrote this for him, completely missed the point.

If you even sense that someone has a concussion, at the very minimum, you:
