If Brandon actually had a pimp hand, Talbott never would have stepped foot on our field to begin with.

This is a huge embarrassment and I can't believe someone in our AD could drop the ball this badly. What really irks me is his profile pic. He's rubbing it in.

It's also time to provide Talbott with written notice that if he is spotted in the Big House, he will be arrested for trespassing, fined, and then escorted to the Michigan-Ohio border.

I would be willing to bet Talbott never even sniffs a sideline pass at the Big House again.  The next time he wants great seats, he'll have to buy from a scalper.  

Brandon really did drop the ball here, though.  By his own standards, he should be very close to being fired.  And if anything does come of it, he should be fired.

So anyways, how does one of the links in there get away with selling photographs of NCAA games?  One of the rules on the sheet I was given states that it is forbidden unless approved by the Media Relations Office.

Not that I would think of selling one of my MIchigan photographs...but still...

Brandon, David A.

To Michael (****
Here is a statement we released this morning once we found out about the situation with the photographer:
Statement Regarding Photographer Accessing Michigan Stadium:  We would have never allowed this individual to have a credential and we were deceived by an Ohio based media outlet. This person and this media outlet will no longer be credentialed for Michigan sporting events.
We will do our best to ensure that this kind of breech of our system of providing credentials to the media doesn’t happen again.
Thanks for sharing your concern, Mike!
Go Blue!

why don't we start an online petition to have this guy blacklisted?

and maybe another one to get an mgoblog photog (mgophotog) credentialed on the sidelines.?

seems like we could get not only readers of this blog, which is everybody, but all the other um blogs to sign. and facebook, etc.

present it to d. brandon.

anyone know how to get one stated?

According to Balas on TOS.....
<br>"the Ohio media outlet used a fake name to get him in. Associate A.D. Dave Ablauf told us they never would have let him in had he used his real name, and the media outlet and Talbott have both had their credentials revoked."

Yo, OPer.  Could you not just post a link and that's it.  A sentence or two (or even a blockquote!) about what the heck you're linking to is common courtesy.  Thanks.

(I only bring this up because i think this is the second thread you started today and if we get people so desparate to start thread for the sake of being first, it stunts quality discussion.  I'd rather hear your opinion than see a link.  That's what m.go.licious is for).
