Michigan speculation shifts to Bates
Michigan forced out Dave Brandon and will begin looking for a new Athletic Director. Expect Brad Bates to get mentioned as a candidate over and over and over again. At this point it is all speculation and there is nothing BC can or should do. We don't need to overpay to keep him. We cannot get into a bidding war with Michigan. If they want him and he wants the job, more power to both. It only becomes interesting from a BC perspective if he leaves. If that happens, look for our AD search to be very different from the last one.
