"BrandOn" I believe belongs to Wolverine Devotee. I'm just using it. So that little branding exercise actually worked. I promise to pay WD MGoRoyalties. 

Also, I can't help but comment on the irony of you calling out my "stupid shtick" while misspelling the word 'think.'

Irony does not mean what you think it means.  Misspelling the word think was an accident.  Repeatedly and intentionally misspelling our AD's last name as BrandOn is a gimmick.  

The worst part about your schtick then, is that it's not even original. That's unfortunate.  

Now be a good boy and pay WD his royalties.

(all but) dead. . . There was no way this could continue much longer. The weight of public opinion, the collapse of the goose that laid the golden egg. . . 

There are almost assuredly better--at least saner--times ahead.

The person who would be able to convince John Harbaugh to come to Michigan would probably be Mattison. Being that they worked together in Baltimore, I'm sure that he could be the deciding factor. Either way Lloyd Carr was the one who didn't really care for Les Miles and I don't really think we could get either three of those guys. It would be nice but they haven't really showed any interest to returning to college.

Warde is much like Jim Harbaugh. Regardless of his connection he's one of the best options to takeover. It just so happens that he has ties to Michigan. As far as Bates goes, that one is a little more the Michigan connection. He's qualified but probably not on a top 5 list without the connection. Warde is a top 5 candidate regardless.
