Michigan Athletic Director, Dave Brandon,

Sometimes irony can be so delicious you
have to say that God indeed has a sense of humor.
Brandon talks about a level playing field
yet Michigan has not played less than seven homes games in a twelve game regular season in an eternity.
Michigan’s four non-conference games
this year (all in Ann Arbor) included Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan from the MAC, Notre Dame (which has not been Rockne’s
or Parseghian’s Notre Dame for at least two decades), and San Diego State from the Mountain West. Not one of these teams won more than eight games. I cannot

Michigan only played three teams in the
Big Ten with winning records and lost two of them. Michigan barely beat one of
the worst Ohio State teams in years. Michigan did not play Wisconsin or Penn

AD responds to Ohio State coaches waiver
Mich. (AP)—Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon says he doesn’t understand the waiver that allows Ohio State

has approved the arrangement, saying it’s not all that rare.
Brandon said in an e-mail to The Associated Press: “It allows more coaching resources to work
on the two primary responsibilities of any staff—coaching and recruiting. I am struggling to understand how
this relates to the `level playing field’ the NCAA claims it is always working to create.”
