“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

I don't disagree that he has done good things as well as bad things. For me, the bad far outweigh the good (with the one exception of coaching salaries). I think arguing that he brought us all of the facility upgrades is a false pretense, as those were happening with or without DB. Martin started those wheels in motion, and once we made that jump, the money was bound to follow. Giving DB credit for the extra revenue generated is weak sauce. He is responsible for incrementally improving revenue, but again, revenue was going to increase after stadium upgrades anyhow.
The problems that DB has created are his, and his alone. He has been the driving force behind all of the things that people are up in arms about, and there's no way to deny that. It's for that reason that I want him out, and that reason alone. He has the potential to bring our whole culture down, and that frightens me more than I can say.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.

I know what you were referring to, kiddo. You're not picking up what I'm laying down.

If you go to Walgreens for your prescriptions, they'll send you reminders when you need to get it refilled. You should check it out.

This doesn't come off to me as him "acknowledging" anything. He's very dismissive of all the criticism. This is just false lip service, orchestrated to make him look good. Nothing more.
I've never said this before, but I'm saying it now. Fire DB.

He hasn't destroyed Michigan Football. That isn't the point. He's well on his way to his stated desire of providing "entertainment value" (the best value he could provide to me would be a simple Michigan Football game, nothing else), and creating a "mini Super Bowl". That is decidedly not what Michigan Football is, or has ever been about. It's a very, very slippery slope, and he seems to have zero awareness of what people actually want.
He's a mass marketing guy, I suppose we should all have seen this kind of thing coming. Lowest common denominator and all of that. The thing that I think is most detrimental is his ego, as I think that's where most of the tone-deafness comes from. I want the guy gone.

You are so blind. So, so, gloriously blind, it's just amazing. Does making these inane comments make you feel cool? You should really ask yourself, honestly, why do these things seem to annoy so many people? You are bearing witness to the program that you have devoted your life to, morph into some kind of chintzy, gimmicky - oh look, shiny thing!- ... what was I saying?

Dude just doesn't get it. He will never get it. He thinks the answer is always to make something shinier, and louder, and that will keep us "competitive".
This is Michigan. We should be setting the standard, not following Oregon, Mr. Brandon.
That’s a schedule that’s gonna be wow.
What does that even mean? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
In an effort to try to solve a problem – they’re either arriving late, or some games we had 5,000-7,000 no-shows – we found out what other stadiums were doing, and they were all doing general admission. It was an incentive to get students there earlier, to get a better seat.
Crazy. Pills. This is Michigan. We should be "creating the future" here, not meekly following along with Minnesota.

Northfleet sucks. Now, Eastfleet, he's pretty good.

I didn't think the link below was thread worthy, so I'm just dropping it here. EMU is installing grey field turf... that seems like it would be extremely uncomfortable to play on, gotta get much hotter than usual. It also make the whole stadim remind me of looking at some kind of prison complex.

Seeing as we didn't have the shaving thread until this week, I'd go with cleaver.

I remember Wolverine Devotee said he had a video he's been working on, I'm curious to see it.

They probably just did the quick, arm measurement of body fat, which can be misleading.

Is on my list. Staying with family in Pensacola is not vacation. Once you join the working world, you'll change your tune about vacations. As to the heat, you just have to time your visits with the changing seasons, or be hot.
