Michigan AD taking care of business...


A 5 year old in Oklahoma wore a U of M t-shirt to school one day, which violated the school's dress code policy. He was required to wear the shirt inside-out for the remainder of the day. Somehow this story made it all the way to Yahoo's top stories. Which might be how Michigan's Athletic Director, Dave Brandon, heard of it. Of course, today, we have a story of what Mr. Brandon did to remedy the situation for the boy.

Original Story Here

Michigan has arranged so that the boy and his family to a U of M game, and has arranged for them to be on the video board presenting them as loyal fans. The AD also created a t-shirt that still reads Michigan when turned inside out. And, of course, this story is also featured prominently on Yahoo.

Today's Followup

I have no particular allegiance to Michigan, in fact I almost went to Michigan State, but to me, this illustrates a connected Athletic Director. This guy probably hasn't taken too many Chianti tasting trips. And would probably make heads roll if he had an 80 yard practice field. But alas, we're stuck with a guy who probably doesn't even know what a video board is...
