The Michigan Wolverines football team has looked pretty bad this season, but instead of trying to make their fans feel better about being at the bottom of an already weak Big Ten conference, allegedly Michigan AD Dave Brandon is lashing back at outraged fans. A family of Michigan alums claimed that their aunt sent an email to Brandon to respectfully express her disappointment with the way things have been going for the football team and also told Brandon in her email that her family would no longer get season tickets. The alleged response received from Brandon is quite shocking.
Just some background here, my friend comes from a family of Michigan alums. Her aunt who is an alum had enough of this garbage so she decided to speak up.
She sent a very respectful email to Dave Brandon that was well-written on their families’ opinion of the job he is doing and she said that they no longer were season ticket holders.
Another Michigan fan reported this about their encounter with Brandon last season.
Dave Brandon, to my face, when I asked him his thoughts on the student outrage to last year’s GA seating policy, said “F*ck em.” Yes, that’s a direct quote from a 2013 Alumni event in NYC.
If these stories are true, Dave Brandon has a lot of explaining to do.
