They talked a bit about the renovation at Schembechler Hall. Brandon said that when it was done, there would be an 8-foot statue of Bo in front of the building. This would be the first time in the history of the university that a statue of a person has been approved for campus. I didn't catch the timeline for the completion of this project.
I thought the most entertaining exchange of the night was regarding the Notre Dame series. Hoke did acknowledge calling them chicken, and went to explain how important rivalries are to Michigan, and how UM did not want the rivalry to end. Beilein covered his face when they were discussing how Hoke called them chicken - clearly that is not his style. Then Brandon talked about how they've been trying to get Notre Dame back on the basketball schedule for years, but that ND does not want to play us. He said "John, why do you think that is?". Beilein laughed, but didn't take the bait - he stared at the floor and said "I'll let Brady answer that", and Hoke immediately said "They're chicken". Very funny.

They can be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County. This is tax-deductible, but more importantly, it can provide a great experience to some youngsters, and the volunteers that are mentoring them. We've done this in the past, and is a much better alternative to getting a few bucks for one of the lesser games.

These three went on to be head coaches, probably several others could be found also. I was always surprised the Bo-Nehlen-RichRod connection didn't get him more support.
Always interesting to see the coaching trees from some of the older coaches.
