I don’t know how many people know this, but when Dave Brandon was interviewing to replace Rich Rod, one of the guys he actually interviewed was Kevin Sumlin. And he turned down Kevin Sumlin and ended up taking Brady Hoke, the Michigan guy. And I can’t imagine too many Michigan fans are thrilled now that they know that that was the decision that was made … [Sumlin] was one of the guys they considered, and they didn’t want … Not a Michigan guy, though, and they wanted the Michigan man. -Bruce Feldman
This is one of those hindsight is 20-20 type situations obviously. I mean back in 2011 Kevin Sumlin wasn’t the Kevin Sumlin he is today and was coming off a 5-7 season. Brady Hoke had Michigan ties, did big things at Ball State, took San Diego State to a 9-4 record. And Hoke was a huge hit to start off. Michigan won some big games, Hokemania ran wild. 10 win season. Won a BCS Bowl Game. So to sit here and look back and criticize is kind of unfair.
But whatever, fuck it! It’s 2014 now, we have the hindsight, it’s 20-20 as fuck…we can shit all over Dave Brandon and Michigan for making the worst choice ever. Hey Brandon, Kevin Sumlin, ever heard of him? Just the second coolest coach in the country who made A&M a powerhouse and churned out a Heisman winner. Oh what’s that, you can’t hear me over the riots going on in your front yard? I SAID KEVIN SUMLIN IS THE MAN AND HOKE IS A LOSER GOOD CHOICE MORON.
