Former Brandon crony takes shot at Brian at 12:30am

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on June 21st, 2015 at 3:19 PM

In case you aren't on twitter and missed this hilarious exchange, I thought I'd give a recap.

So, this guy. Brian was tweeting about the DB/Hoke era yesterday and some guy sent this tweet to him and then deleted it 15 seconds later.

Unfortunately for him, I screencapped it.


Brian quoted the tweet here mentioning the guy's profile


this guy's job is literally "Senior Manager of Brand Activation."

He works for the Phoenix Suns if you look at his twitter page.

After a quick google search, this guy not only works with Lochdawgg who is also with the Phoenix Suns, but he was a marketing guy at Michigan under Brandon.

Seems to me that Brandon's people knew alllllll about MGoBlog. So much so that they still think about it. I wouldn't be surprised if they had someone monitor the site. 

Also: let's keep in mind that this guy tweeted Brian at 12:20am on a Saturday.

That right there tells you he was a Brandon guy. Must all have that instinct to blast off hottakes and press statements near 1am. 

MGoTwitter reacts


A guy from the Lochdawgg tree tried to big-time @mgoblog on behalf of Dave Brandon after midnight on a Saturday. The internet is amazing.

@mgoblog Wait, did he already delete that tweet? That’s not brand activation of you ask me.

@mgoblog @ChrisJKaiser This might be the best thing that has ever happened on twitter.

First of all it seems that NOTHING is safe on the internet, No matter how short things are on there.  (Impressive that you were in the right place at the right time). 

Secondly, I'm more and more convinced through this blog, Brian has amassed a very powerful position within the Michigan Athletic apparatus. . . He's like the Grover Norquist of Michigan athletics.

This blog would be a goldmine of information about fan sentiment, demographics, preferences, etc. and it's free for them to access it.  They'd be fools not to be reading this blog every day.  All the discussions on the Nike vs. Adidas Vs. UnderArmour (for example) would be hugely valuable the the AD.

is out to get them. I wouldn't think this would be a surprise to anyone. I would expect him to watch every media source closely. That's why I view his reaction to emails as sad rather than something to gloat over. The guy needs help.

I hope we reach the day soon where we appreciate what we have and forget Dave Brandon was ever here.

If he works for the Suns, then he likely lives in AZ, which is in the Pacific time zone. So it maybe wasn't all that late for him to be awake and tweeting. He could still be a tremendous douche, though.

Arizona is on Mountain Standard Time year round (never go on DST) so they are currently 3 hours behind due to MI's move to DST, same as PDT at the moment.

Still, you'd think the guy would have better things to do than yap at a blog that got his old boss fired. At 9pm MST on a Saturday night. Srsly.
