University of Michigan Athletic Director, Dave Brandon was not mentioned by name during the Board of Regents meeting Thursday.
Michigan President Mark Schlissel says he’s being “thoughtful and deliberative” in examining issues facing the school’s athletic department.
UM Regent Denise Ilitch Says Dave Brandon Will Be Discussed At Upcoming Meeting: ‘The System Failed’
“The system failed that day,” Ilitch added, “and there are a lot of issues that we need to review now.”
Hoke did not dismiss the possibility of redshirting the freshman, who has been a starter for the Wolverines when available.
As poorly as Michigan has played for the last month or so, there was still a sense that the Wolverines had the makings of a solid defensive team.
“It’s a team out there that needs me, and they said that they needed me, and it’s much bigger than myself,” quarterback Devin Gardner said.
“Our kids have worked their tails off, and they keep working their tails off,” Hoke said.
“It’s SAD how people these days will believe anything reported by media sources that don’t take the time to be GREAT!!!”
Hoke stated, as he has since starting Morris against Minnesota, that he was impressed by Gardner’s handling of the temporary demotion.
“You know I don’t talk about injuries unless a guy is going to miss the year, and unfortunately that’s Derrick Green. He broke his clavicle late in the football game.”
