Michigan Source Tells ESPN That AD Dave Brandon's Nasty Emails To Fans Are 'Concerning'

On Tuesday, the website MGoBlog reported that Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon has responded to critical fan emails by telling them to "find a new team" and that he doesn't care about their opinions. The report confirmed that a nasty email Brandon sent a fan earlier this month that went viral was authentic.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg talked to a high-level source at the university, who called Brandon's emails "troubling."
