I'm not sure what this means - because LSU can't recruit qb's, Etling was drafted by the Pats?

I'm not sure where I blamed the refs for anything?

I just wanted to point out the mentality of the MSU coaching staff and if the roles had been reversed I would hope that Harbaugh would not allow that type of behavior from his staff.

“There’s some relief because Dave got a new job,” Hackett said in July. “We weren’t counting on that; we got that. "

 

Fantastic unintentional comedy.

You really think he told his high school student section already and a bunch of 17 year olds are all able to keep a lid on it?

Be better.

This guy is the biggest PSU homer I have ever seen.

 

I'd love to hear who is a better candidate than Harbaugh in Weinreb's mind...Jay Paterno?

 

His articles are embarrassing with their blatant hate for Michigan.  

12/22/2014 - 7:28pm Brandon of

Brandon of course......

 

 

Just kidding, it's Dave Dunn - his agent

We hear nothing other than Schiano fluffing himself for a week or so and now we are reaching out to multiple candidates - certainly sounds to me like the AD thinks their chances with Harbaugh have greatly diminished.  

12/09/2014 - 6:37pm Well, so much for Harbaugh

Well, so much for Harbaugh coming home...

seems the writing is on the wall...

12/03/2014 - 12:33pm Most coaches I would assume

Most coaches I would assume are looking to stay in coaching, I doubt very much Brandon will ever be an athletic director again.

 

Thus, Brandon retired and Hoke was fired.

12/02/2014 - 2:00pm Ha, I really screwed that up

Ha, I really screwed that up if that's what people think I meant.

I was referring to the assistants being out on the road talking to recruits. 

I cannot imagine a situation that would look worse than a coach coming in, saying whatever it is that these assistants have to lie about to the recruits, and then literally a day later they are all fired.

Sorry for any confusion, I absolutely think Hoke should be able to talk to the current players.  

12/02/2014 - 1:52pm Just so we're all clear -
We

Just so we're all clear -

We are sending coaches to talk to kids that are no longer employed by the University.

The incompetence of the athletic department never ceases...

That's the part I really don't get.  

This is a guy who clearly knows all about the new forms of digital media and regularly uses them to "enhance the brand", and yet he makes it a point of pride to condescend whenever talking about blogs like it's still 1999 and the only people on the internet are nerds sitting in their underwear in their parents' basement. 

Like hey Dave, wake up bud.  A large contingent of Michigan athletic supporters get their Michigan athletic news from blogs and form their opinion from blogs so maybe it would be a good time to start reading them after you've finished firing off a few dozen emails to the fake-ass wolverines*.

And let's not forget that this is the same guy that called out every player on the team with the exception of Peppers a few weeks ago.

Just ridiculous that they can weave this narrative that the fans are somehow protesting the players...

10/04/2014 - 11:45am Why is his past not relevant

Why is his past not relevant to the discussion?

I tend to believe that an individual's past behavior is a good barometer for their future behavior.   

10/04/2014 - 11:41am No, I was saying that maybe

No, I was saying that maybe he wasn't a good CEO because his performance relative to the overall market wasn't stellar.

That got debunked a little later when I realized that Domino's paid a huge special dividend, so Domino's actually performed better on a relative basis.  

I do not expect Domino's share price to hold up in an enormous bear market.  

But if you examine Domino's outperformance since DB's departure, DB doesn't come out looking so great.  

Bottom line, when DB was hired, we were told that we were getting a slam dunk candidate because he was a CEO.  But I think it worth examining, just because we got a CEO, were we getting a good CEO? 

10/04/2014 - 11:28am Good on DB then to improve

Good on DB then to improve his product.  

I actually enjoy a few items on their current menu.

Let's hope then that if DB stays as athletic director that he also recognizes the dire need to improve his current product. 

10/04/2014 - 11:24am I suppose the narrative of DB

I suppose the narrative of DB using the AD as a stepping stone to Governor doesn't make complete sense to me.  

It seems to me that while he is certainly in a prestigious position currently, it would make more sense to build up a war chest in the higher paying and more prestigous CEO role.  

For those reasons, DB's move to AD feels like his stepping stone is more of a step back.   

10/04/2014 - 11:08am I'm with you that I made some

I'm with you that I made some huge jumps and extrapolations.  

I'll also agree that confirmation bias is certainly in play.

At the end of the day though, DB was trumpeted as a huge "get" for the AD coming from his position as CEO.  To me, that seems like a big step down in postion and I suspected (with zero evidence) that perhaps DB didn't exactly leave Domino's on his own volition.  The performance of Domino's after his departure may support that thesis. 

10/04/2014 - 10:55am Maybe it's an unaswerable

Maybe it's an unaswerable question unless you have access to Domino's internal strategy documents. 

I'm well aware that Domino's vastly overhauled their offerings and marketing - I was just curious if that happened under DB or the new leadership.  

10/04/2014 - 10:52am You're absolutely correct on

You're absolutely correct on this. 

That special dividend is huge and I didn't notice it until after posting.  

I still think that there's something to be said for Domino's performance since DB's departure. 

10/04/2014 - 10:42am Ha, we are getting wayyy more

Ha, we are getting wayyy more complicated than I intended but if we want to bring up issues with companies being in debt and earnings reports, please go take a look at Amazon's earnings reports the past few years.  

10/04/2014 - 10:32am This seems like a flawed

This seems like a flawed argument to me.

Are you implying that everyone in a position of responsibility and leadership is there based purely on merit and success?

Because I know of a certain head football coach at a big time program that would seem to contradict that statement.  

10/04/2014 - 10:29am I'm not disagreeing with you,

I'm not disagreeing with you, but do you have a source for DB being responsible for the revamped offering and makeover of the company?

I'm not claiming to be an expert of Domino's business strategies and absolutely realize that this issue is much more complicated than a simple internet post. 

10/04/2014 - 10:23am If you want to bring the

If you want to bring the economy and overall market into the discussion then you must also include that Domino's underperformed the market during the crash and has outperformed it during the current bull market.  

These underperforming and outperforming periods coincide very nicely with DB's time at Domino's. 

 

10/04/2014 - 10:18am I agree with you that the

I agree with you that the bear market beginning in 2008 did no favors to DB. 

Regardless of market conditions, you would still be very hardpressed to find many shareholders that would classify DB's tenure as a "success".  

Looking further into it, that giant drop occurred due to a special dividend of $13.50 which certainly makes DB's tenure look better. 

EDIT:

I tried to keep this post in simple terms that everyone could understand but I probably should have remembered that this is the MGoBoard.

At the end of the day, DPZ underperformed the S&P during DB's tenure and vastly outperformed the market after he left.

I think we can all agree that Michigan football is vastly underperforming the market (college football as a whole) under DB's tenure and hopefully there is an analagous situation after DB leaves.  

10/04/2014 - 10:04am Ha, holy PR spin.
Seems a bit

Ha, holy PR spin.

Seems a bit generous to me that DB gets credit for a company's performance 5 years after he left. 

Obviously this is a million times more complicated than just stock price, but I was just trying to point out that maybe DB's time at Domino's isn't as great as it initially sounded.

2 minutes left drive starting inside the 5 if I remember correctly and a true freshman leads them down the field for the winning td.  Pretty good in my book...
