Without a doubt the U-M athletic program is a big business, and one of the few in major college sports that is financially self-sustaining (and then some). So it’s no surprise that the new Athletic Director has a big business background – but also a comfort to the Wolverine faithful that he has personal experience in both U-M varsity sports and University governance. In his first visit to our club, David Brandon will discuss Michigan athletic traditions, the current state of the U-M Athletic Department, and the future of Michigan sports.
