- Maize n Brew is not happy with Michigan AD David Brandon's plan to replace Rich Rodriguez:
The primary issue I have is with Brandon, who told everyone that he had a plan and would not deviate from that plan, then revealed the plan as one that makes little sense when taken in the context of running a big-time football program. . . . If the plan was always to have a nationwide coaching search, Rodriguez needed to be let go on Dec. 1 and the search needed to have started then. It wasn't handled correctly, and Brandon has instead flown the plane directly into the mountain, and done so by following his deliberately thought out flight plan.
