From Nick Baumgardner of MLive, the Pizza Man speaketh:
Brandon: 'I can't hold Brady Hoke accountable if I'm telling him who to put on the staff.'
Brandon says it's a 'leap of logic' to say he's running the football program. 'It's silly.'
Brandon now says he felt 'silly' having to write a vote of confidence for Brady Hoke. But he says it served its purpose.
Brandon asked by @berniesmilovitz
if he was able to meet w/ everyone on his coaching search list when he hired Hoke 'Yes.'
Brandon says there was no one else on his coaching search list that would have swayed him from hiring Hoke.
Brandon asked if MSU's success has put pressure on Michigan: 'Our job isn't to worry about (MSU all season) ...'
Brandon: 'Our job is to worry about Michigan State when we go head to head.'
Brandon says he watched Rose Bowl, pulled for MSU, loved how they played football 'I was proud of them.'
Brandon says Michigan has about $300 million more to raise and spend on facility upgrades
