To me the reason DB scheduled Army is clear: all time record vs. opponent. Michigan is 4-5 all-time vs. Army, and I'm convinced DB wanted to even the record against Army to reduce the number of teams with winning records against Michigan. Point in case: he scheduled a rematch against App State, and now we are 1-1 all time against them!
FWIW, here are the other teams with winning records against M:
Kansas State, 0-1
South Carolina, 1-3
Mississippi State, 0-1
Arizona State, 0-1
And Cornell (6-12,) Chicago University Football Club (1-3), Wesleyan CT (0-1) and Cleveland AA (0-1) in non FBS teams.

Here's my Cool Story Bro on Brandon: I know a very senior tech exec who started her career as a marketer at Domino's during the Brandon CEO era. Her team worked for months on a proposal ffor on-line pizza ordering and delivery. They presented to DB who threw them out of the conference room, ridiculing the idea that anyone would use a computer to order pizza instead of a telephone. She says it was the worst she has been treated in her entire career. Visionary, that guy.

This is true for any human organization in the history of the world. Anyone who has spent any time in government, non-profits, athletics, whatever has seen this. I worked in the Federal Government for ten years, and guess what mattered? Your connections, your resume story, and you power over others (which is a form of psycic pay day). Join the FBI, CIA, Foreign Service, a congressional staff, really any high-profile government job and you will learn that your "product and success" don't really matter there, either.

In 1979 we drove my dad's '76 Cadillac Eldorado (white with red leather seats) from suburban Detroit to Florida at spring break to see my grandparents. 2 1/2 days, 8-10 MPG, and a red leather backseat with acres of space for a 7 and 5 year old.
These were the days of independent motels, restaurants, and tourist traps the entire length of I-75. No mobile phones, no reservations, pull off at an exit and try and find a motel room and edible food. Good times.

Specifically on Apo Island - great diving spot if you ever get back there. Clownfish City dive was one of the best I have ever done.

My Roger Moore cool story:
Fifteen years ago the wife and I were at a remote, very basic dive resort in the Philippines. On our last day there, after a day of great diving, we went to the bar for a beer.
Sitting at the only other table at the bar was Sir Roger himself, with a couple of friends. Being the only other people in the place, he invited us to join him, and that's how I spent an evening drinking with James Bond (San Mig beer, not martinis, alas.)

You are a stronger, gritter man than I. Brandy is iconic, Michigan Man, played for Bo, etc - but he needs a few more reps as a PBP guy. Listen for the crowd reaction 5 seconds before Brandy gets around to describing what he's seen.

Amazing British duo. They take samples from the British Film Institute and build songs around them. Their last album The Race For Space takes samples from the space race from 1957-1969. Their song Go! about the Apollo landing is the best song of 2015

Living in California I rarelly listen to the radio broadcasts, so it was disconcerting to hear how awkward Brandy is calling a game. Michicigan legend but he is miscast as a play by play announcer.

Toys R Us owned by private equity - Bain Capital, KKR, and Vornado. Bain made 500% return on their investment with Dave as CEO, which is what they really care about.

Toys R Us is owned by Bain, KKR, and Vornado private equity.
Bain made a 500% percent return on Domino's with Brandon as CEO, so I think they are willing to give him some rope.
|08/21/2015 - 1:11pm||Pizza boy messed up||
This is pathetic, and is what happens when "leaders" don't inspire, protect, and engage with those they lead.
I had a friend that worked in digital marketing Domino's during the early days of Brandon's tenure. Brandon ridculed their efforts during a meeting saying "Why would I ever buy a pizza on my computer when I can just pick up the phone?"
Visionary, that guy.

Redskins-Bears, halftime in one of the decrepti old men's rooms in the bowels of the stadium.
I was next in line at a urinal when there is a commotion behind me. It's two middle aged women with a lot of miles on the odometer, drunk as monkeys saying they need to pee. I assume they are going to go to the stalls, but one pushes to the front of the line, pulls down her jeans, and pops a squat on the urinal to pee. Sat on that nasty thing facing the crowd of drunken men , does her business, pulls up her pants and goes over to wash her hands.
Will never forget that moment as it happened right in front of me.
|02/12/2015 - 2:27pm||More of an announcer thing...||
But I detest when people refer to the team by the coach's name, e.g. "The Fighting Harbaughs" "The Fighting Sabans"
Rece Davis on ESPN does this constantly and it drives me batty.
