Michigan Coaching Speculation

    From what I have seen of RR recruiting isn't his problem. How can a guy who plays it as fast and loose as he does with recruiting rules have a problem recruiting?

    No its the big game choking, the lack of fundamentals, the lack of physical play and the one trick pony nature of his gimmick offense that scUM fans should be worried about.....not the recruiting.

    True, but he was also recruiting kids that none of the other schools wanted, because of grades, etc.......WVU didnt care. They are WVU. Standards are gonna be much higher at Michigan, or maybe not, forgot who I was talkin about there for a minute :biggrin:

    HTM the last couple of days have RR and his staff members, while still in the pay of WVU steering prospects to another institution of interest - to them - before they were paid by that institution.

    Technically that is a form of acting as a booster I guess (as Oh8ch expounded it earlier) but unlikely to draw red flags or an NCAA investigation. Still damned sleazy, as an aside it shows a lack of understanding of the pull they would have once firmly in AA.

    Other than that the main rap against Rodriguez are the borderline (or worse) characters he fed into the WVU system. (Of course, you are counting on a hooker's conversion on that score :))

    Well, it's not against the NCAA recruiting rules to recruit assholes. And nobody holds Maurice Clarett against Tressel. (I know, I know....Clarett was one guy, WVU has several characters. Point is still valid, I think.)

    And as for the call to Pryor and maybe other recruits, RR informed him that he'd tendered his resignation to WVU and was going to Michigan. Nothing more, nothing less. That's my story and I'm sticking to it, anyway. One of those gray areas that looks iffy, the lawyers would have a field day with, and the NCAA would err on the side of caution and not punish anyone. Not the first time a gray area has ever popped up in the maze of lawyerese that is the NCAA recruiting code. A very shaky basis to peg RR as a guy who "plays fast and loose with the rules."

    Michigan beat Ohio State over the weekend.

    Haha, figures that helping another team attempt to beat Ohio State is the only way Michigan can get a victory against the Buckeyes.

    By the way, that article was trash.

    You know, why should we even fucking play the game against such a vastly superior (two-loss) opponent?

    Not only did RR just beat you guys in advance for 2008, 2009, and racked up a couple pre-emptive TD's for 2010, and begin the process of stealing your best potential recruit and probably damn near everyone else from the state of Ohio for the next 5 years, we're also about to proxy-whoop you in the NC game. And next year's Iowa game, because by then Ferentz will have recovered from the crushing blow of not getting to leave Iowa and be fully out for revenge - on OSU.

    Just be glad you're not playing Ball State. Hoke didn't just help out with the search, he actually interviewed. Distractions galore in Muncie. Man, think how focused they'd be for this now that they don't have to worry about losing their coach.

    The dual-head-coach system rears its ugly head. Like I said - SCREWED.
