Always saying it how it is.
I recently found Brian’s channel on Youtube, and have been following the news on the recent games. No matter how much it may hurt (especially with losses, i.e. vs Michigan tonight.) We need to know the truth, both about how the team is functioning well, and how they are struggling. Brian Neubert says it how it is, and I am thankful for that. Boiler Up! Hammer Down! TylerStrong!
