Respect Notre Dame first

Letter to the Editor | Monday, November 20, 2006

While I was happy to honor the memory of former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler at Saturday’s football game, I thought it was an inappropriate gesture one week after the death of a Notre Dame student, which was not in any way recognized. I can certainly understand not wanting to cause a painful moment for the senior class during its last home game, but having an extended moment of silence for a person unrelated to the Notre Dame community made the lack of any mention of Caitlin Brann very noticeable. The athletic department needs to be more careful in the future about such announcements.
