All good things must come to an end, as the saying goes, and it appears the Dave Brandon era will officially come to an end this afternoon.

With Michigan calling a bizarre late Friday afternoon press conference to cryptically "discuss athletic director Dave Brandon," the writing was all but on the wall. Minutes later, ESPN's Brett McMurphy broke the news: Dave Brandon will resign in the next few hours.

If this is true (and there's no reason it isn't) this is the gravest day for Ohio State football since Jim Tressel's ouster in late 2011. Make no mistake: Dave Brandon, the man who chose Brady Hoke over Kevin Sumlin, will go down as one of history's greatest Wolverine slayers.

If you're imbibing tonight: first of all, do it responsibly; secondly, make sure to pour some out for ol' Dave Brandon. He will be missed.
