Some highlights:
 
"I don't think it is a pivotal year," Brandon said Sunday in an interview with The Associated Press. "It is another year to make progress and show growth with more recruits who are the type of athletes he wants for his style of play."
 
"Sadly, there are people who only care about wins and losses," Brandon said. "Part of Brady's job description is to teach life lessons that help young men become successful in life, and he's doing a great job at that."
 
I don't know about you, but that just inspires so much confidence in me. I feel so energized for the season after reading that!

If it's not about winning and losing why do they always keep score?

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

Way to inspire your fanbase, Dave.
 
 
Hoke may very well suck (and it appears that he does) but Brandon is a thousand times worse.

Of all the things we joke about this is the worst thing I've ever heard. This is what somebody says after they've been defeated and given up. This guy is useless and the university should let him go.

Go Blue!!

I clearly paid $85 dollars on my Braylon Edwards jersey because he learned a lot about life while at Michigan.. Not because of his performances against Ohio in 03' and Sparty in 04'. He clearly "learned" a lot about good decisions during his time at Michigan.. Strip clubs, guns, and DUI's is apparently what they teach you at Michigan huh Dave?

Joe Citizen really doesn't care what he's done for the University.  Sorry to say that, but that's the reality.

are you guys this delusional all the time?  what do you want him to say?  "I understand if UM doesn't win, I might have to fire Hoke.  Hell, they might fire my a** also."
 
brandon is not THIS oblivious to the state of the program.  he knows, just like everyone else, that this year is, in fact, VERY pivotal, but he can't necessarily say that to the media and create potential unrest, especially in regards to recruiting. 
 
and in case anyone's wondering, no, I'm not really a huge fan of Brandon

Something else he couldn't say......

"And yes when i have to fire bradys a$$, to save my own skin, we already have our next hc in waiting, that we conveniently hired to replace our oc this past off season"

Coach Nuss, sounds nice.

He's merely lowering expectations gentlemen. You know what all great leaders do.
*WARNING* The above comment may be partly, or entirely, tongue in cheek. To avoid confusion please read carefully & look for indications of sarcasm before responding. Thank you

Go Blue!!

So this pretty much confirms that the piece from the FreeP you posted last week did come from the AD, and this will be the main talking point if the team stinks up the joint again this year.
 
The subtext appears to be that not only is Hoke gone if the teams fails but Bramdumb's going with him.
"We have to work harder."
-Brady Hoke during any post-game press conference in the last year.

Spoken like a true CEO.  His answer should have been: "Of course this is an important year.  Every year at Michigan is an important year.  This is Michigan."  Doesn't have to call it pivotal, doesn't put Hoke on the hot seat publicly (he can't do that no matter how much we want him to) and nobody freaks out.   But he's an idiot with an out of control ego who now (apparently) is in the excuse business.

I honestly don't have an issue with the first statement. I don't expect DB to put Hoke on notice or say anything in public that could be construed as pressure.dfdf
 
The "sadly there are people who only care about wins and losses" statement is absurd but I guess predictable given what's been said over the last year or so. If the life lesson Hoke has been teaching guys is about losing then yeah, he's done a great job. Hoke is a football coach not a pastor or counselor. His job is to win football games, the rest is secondary.
