“Dave Brandon,” this name keeps coming up over and over again. Every day Dave’s email is getting sent back to me. Dave Brandon! Dave Brandon! I look in the email, and this whole inbox is Dave Brandon! So I say to myself, “I gotta find this guy! I gotta go up to his office and put his email in the guy’s goddamn hands! Otherwise, he’s never going to get it and he’s going to keep coming back down here.”


So I go up to Dave’s office and what do I find out, Mac? What do I find out?! There is no Dave Brandon. The man does not exist, okay? So I decide, “Oh shit, buddy, I gotta dig a little deeper.” There’s no Dave Brandon? You gotta be kidding me! I got inboxes full of Dave! All right. So I start marchin’ my way down to Carol in HR and I knock on her door and I say, “Carol! Carol! I gotta talk to you about Dave.” And when I open the door what do I find? There’s not a single goddamn desk in that office! There…is…no…Carol in HR.

those helmets.  Bad ass.  There's the second thing worthwhile that comes out of College Station.  The first being Freebirds Burritos.  If you've been, you know what I'm sayin'.  If you haven't been, you need to go.  Trust me.

Chipolte doesn't have queso. Qdoba and Pancheros instantly win out.

I asked for queso at Chipolte once. The snooty lady behind the counter stopped what she was doing, looked up at me, and said in her most disgusted voice "we do NOT serve chemicals here". 

Never going back there. I don't really care about the crappy service, but if you aren't going to serve delicious melted cheese goodness on your burritos, are you really even serving burritos at all?

I've been there several times and liked it.  For the previous comment, I also like Chipotle... I didn't think Freebirds was anything but fresh.  The grill always had stuff being cooked and I have no idea how they get their other ingredients, but I have to imagine that the veggies were fresh.  Canned beans I think I can handle.

I'm surprised they missed the helmet stitching / leather look idea when they created the UTL I uniformz with the big block M.  It would have fit perfectly.

I rarely like alternate uniforms but those are really cool. I'm kind of old school though, if it were up to me I'd get rid of the shoulder numbers on Michigan's home and away uniforms and the away would be plain blue numbers. No piping! Ever!

DB called and wants his football helmet back.

Actually... DB just wants royalty rights for a 20 year period with an escallation clause adjusted to prime rate and market performance.  And wants a letter of support.  More the letter than anything else, really.  Although doing it via skywriting instead of written letter is fine too.  Just don't usre his personal email, he cleans that out regularly.  Just don't tell anyone that, shhh.

Well... first I'd like to say...I like, but not fully like these uniforms a little bit.  I think...Obviously those young men who designed this certainly put in some tremendous effort. The tradition of it...what they've done...I think it shows how hard they have worked...they have done some nice things execution-wise...certainly we trombone...hard work..practice...effort...leadershipnessest...cheese pizza...enlgish sardine...Jurassic Chiwahahahah...turquoise ninja...fresh cornbread money socks..ggaa....dk........brrrrrrrrrrrrrr............eh eh eh eh....

Helmetz are great, really like them.  I'm surprised that I just said that.

Unis just remind me of Florida State.  

If they went A&M all whites + the cool helmet, I'd be a buyer.  I think I could get a job at Adidas.

Not to just rip on adidas, but they probably didnt design or manufactor those helmets. Those are usually done by independant companies....I mean, maybe they designed them, that was kind of an assumption that they didnt, but I doubt they made them.


And besides the helmet, the rest of the uniform looks stupid. Stretchmarks....

But the unis look like any other uni.

We could trot out a block-M front uni, no patches (B1G, adidas - can make them blue-on-blue if they really insist), no shoulder stripes, big number on the back, no collar 'tag'. Give the kids matching blue undershirts (or whatever adidas calls those spandex compression shirts they wear). Even TV numbers we could lose - just a big one on the back, maybe for balance a small number up where the Legends patches are. 

That I'd like to see for one game. One game only.

Btw why on earth do we not wear blue against Ohio State? No one is watching on black and white anymore, UCLA-USC do the colors quite nively imo.

The wings are close enough in shape to Michigan's that we should probably sue them........but Dave Brandon is definitely busy doing more important things.
