    No comment.

    I'll wait until he's buried before I bash him again.

    I don't care if the guy was the AntiChrist. You're fucking with some pretty horrible karma when he dies of pancreatic cancer and you're just salivating for the chance to bash him.

    Agreed wholeheartedly. We didn't agree with his decisions and his positions. This is not the fucking time nor place to bash the recently deceased as of this afternoon.

    My prayers go to his family.

    I was just going to say, a certain R.M. Knight will not be grieving just a heckuva lot.

    Yet, Brand was by all accounts an able steward of the NCAA. Godspeed.

    I guess aside from political figures, dying negates any kind of commentary regarding arrogant behavior or myriad poor decisions (not including the firing of a basketball coach).

    Fair enough.

    RIP, Myles Brand. He did what he thought was right at the time. And to be fair, he had some good ideas at Indiana that had to do with academic advancement. And much of what he attempted to accomplish at the NCAA made a lot of sense.

    Pancreatic cancer claims another. First Swayze, now Brand.

    Piotr, there's a difference between commenting on his moves--both agreeable and disagreeable--and biting one's nails until the body is six feet under so that blasting him can commence.

    Also, maybe keep it off the RIP thread. You want to start a separate "Myles Brand was a douche" thread, go right ahead.
