Without spending much time discussing the ... changes going on in Ann Arbor, it was difficult today to remember what it felt like to be going through a coaching search in a major sport. Mark Dantonio was hired eight years ago, and Tom Izzo took over the basketball program before I could even appreciate a strong box out and solid outlet pass. Not to mention Mark Hollis, who's been athletic director since 2008. That's a lot of stability, and it's definitely something that should be appreciated today.
