I agree with just about all of it in principle. But it's not written in a very professional way. Far too many exclamation points, just to start (like a 12-year-old's diary). If the authors want it to be taken seriously they should use a more formal style, whch could still convey the severity of the issue.

I want Brandon gone, but I also don't think Michigan should run everything like its the 70s or 80s. Don Canham would not have done that. The man was an innovator who understood the place. Canham would embrace modernity as Michigan must if it wants to be elite again, while still maintaining and celebrating the important traditions that make Michigan unique.

The big leaders and donors at Michigan are like a clique. They like Brandon and he is part of their clique. Of course Hoke will go but we will suffer with his next HC pick!

Like Darth Vader, Darth Brandon has a higher placed sinister presence allied with him, and partly pulling his strings,but always staying out of the light, conspiring to control the Michigan Athletic Department. He alone is not doing all of these stupid and ridiculous commercialization, and style without substance gimmicks, but has an unholy partner.

To know the identity of this person, look back at past performance of Detroit sports teams in the last twenty years, the timetable of when they turned around and became winners, and who was relocated out of the loop in each case to change the culture of each from style without substance to winning. Also look at when we became terrible as a program, and when this person attained a position of power at the University, coincidence ? I don't think so.

Are you actually a student? If you are, this makes everyone look like such whiners. What ever happened to the Michigan student body? Why not protest something worthwhile...There are so many good causes. Look up the damn history of student protests and you'll see a list of great causes. Today we have a 17 year old in Hong Kong leading a protest.

But at Michigan, we protest the AD because the the team is losing or because he raised prices.

I actually loved the sky writing.

And your site actually had a section with personal attacks. Is that how we learn to make an argument and win supporters these days. The whole thing is a whining laundry list. There is no way you could actually be a current student.

This whole thing should be an embarrassment. And for those booing at the game, if anyone booed at a game here at Stanford, Cal and I assume UCLA, etc. the other fans would look at you like you should be at the funny farm.
