After controversy
surrounding Morris
incident, students
call for AD's firing
By ALEXA DETTELBACH,.
GREG GARNO, SAM
GRINGLAS and
RACHEL PREMACE
Michigan Daily Editors
The outcry calling for the fir-
ing of Michigan Athletic birec =
tor Dave Brandon has grown to
possibly its largest in his tenure
at the University after football
coach Brady Hoke's handling of
sophomore quarterback Shane
Morris' "probable, mild concus-
sion" Saturday.
There's been frustration
over his decision to exclude the
marching band from traveling
to Dallas when the Wolverines
played Alabama. And his role in
allowing the student section to
switch to a general admission
policy. There's also his decision
to approve sky writing over East
Lansing and raising ticket prices
not just for students, but also for

other fans.
Students have criticized his
department's increasingly more
expensive student ticket rates.
Last year, the ticket prices were
$40 per game, the second highest
in college football, justbehind the
University of Oregon.
In April, the University was
criticized for how officials han-
dled the permanent separation
of former Michigan kicker Bren-
dan Gibbons after he was found
responsible for violating the Uni-
versity's Student Sexual Miscon-
duct Policy.
To many, it seems, the incident
Saturday was the last straw.
Nearly 1,000 protesters call-
ing for the Brandon's termination
gathered Tuesday on University
President Mark Schlissel's front
lawn. Amid chants of "Fire Bran-
don" and "Down with Dave," one
student asked, "What power do
we have here?"
The process of making a per-
sonnel change, whether it hap-
pens or not, rests solely upon the
University's president.

DPSS reveals
decline in forcible
rape reporting
By MAX RADWIN
Daily StaffReporter
The University's Division
of Public Safety and Security
released its Annual Security
Report and Annual Fire Safe-
ty Report for the 2014-15 year
Tuesday.
The report details crime
trends ranging from sexual
assault, murder and larceny
to alcohol and drug viola-
tions for 2011, 2012 and 2013.
The report also informs stu-.
dents of a survivor's rights

safety tips, and provides all
University emergency con-
tacts, including a cutout card
of important phone numbers
that can be kept in a wallet.
DPSS prepared the report

with the Ann Arbor Police
Department, the Division
of Student Life, Univer-
sity Housing, the Office of
Institutional Equity and the
Office of Conflict Resolution.
Reports made about sexual
assault to the University's
Sexual Assault Prevention
and Awareness Center

to 2013 - from 34 to 35 -
both down from the 44 that
SAPAC received in 2011.
There were also eight
reported rapes on campus in
2013, in addition to seven that
occurred in residence halls.
However, that is down from
the 12 that occurred in-res-
idence in 2012, but up from
the five that occurred in 2011.
According to the report,
there were 1,234 Liquor Law
Violations last year, of which,
1,215 occurred in residence
halls. Of those, there were
only 132 cases in which some-
