08:19 AM ET 06.06 | In his time at Michigan, Dave Brandon has come across more than his share of critics. Brandon said he received a steady drumbeat of complaints about nearly every proposed change -- from football under the lights at U-M stadium to numbers on the helmets -- that has been undertaken on his watch. "But you know what? I don't care," Brandon said. ... Today's U-M fans can even hire out the football stadium for weddings, walk down the aisle through the players' tunnel and broadcast the event on the scoreboard. For a price, Brandon said, "we'll get you the marching band." He also said the changes are working, with more are on the way. "I think I can officially declare that Michigan is back."

I was thinking the same thing when I read this!

I thought the article was going to be about their football program but it turned out to be about ways they can make $ from their fans by giving them 1 winning season.

Does hosting weddings make Michigan back? Now if you beat Alabama you can then say the Michigan football team is back. Gotta prove yourself on the field. Hope you don't get embarrassed by Alabama in the opening game.

I said SEC. Guess that includes the Gumps, as you call them.

It can be a mixed blessing (in terms of unreasonable fan expectations) having a very successful first year like Brady Hoke did (just ask Charlie Weis) but if his team can play with Alabama on September 1st I will take a drink of the Kool Aid (and this is coming from an ND alum and fan).
