Chris Floyd venting over twitter

Tremendous just retweeted this twitter diatribe by former player Chris Floyd. I am going to reserve judgment until the full story comes out, but I just don't get this.  In the last couple years, we've had similar rants demanding a job for Corwin Brown on the new staff (clearly the AD knew what they were doing), scholarships for relatives (i.e. Braylon Edwards), and ex-players injecting themselves into the head coach search process. I appreciate everything these guys did for the program and university, but this just seems a bit much.

Still, My loyalty is with Michigan. I'll always support one of my favorite people, Coach Hoke any way I can....

There is a serious disconnect between the athletic department and the athletic alumni and they wonder why we don't come back or give back!
