    I am not buying that argument. In any business you need integrity. Bobby Petrino dumping the Falcons and moving to R-Kansas is not OK but RR moving to UM before the bowl game is? Bo Pelini has stopped recruiting for LSU and has started recruiting for Nebraska while coaching LSU's bowl game. Why can't hot Rod do the same? He gave them no notice. The players are pissed, and he just dumps them and moves.

    RE "integrity" - With respect to whom? His former employer and players, or his new? RR nows owes a duty to Michigan, and he owes WVU nothing, but he should show more "integrity" toward WVU than to UM? Don't think so....

    RE Pelini - he'd be in Lincoln now if the 'Huskers had a bowl game to worry about.

    RE "players being pissed" - like they'd be less pissed if RR stuck around? Isn't that kind of like living with your wife while you're going through a divorce? Best for everyone to move on and start over.

    Besides, as far as I am concerned, all of this talk about "class" and "integrity" is beside the point. I don't really care whose feelings are hurt at WVU, or who got Machiavellian at UM - I am interested to see how this move affects Ohio State, both in recruiting and in The Game....

    Sportsbuck28 Here comes the BOOM

    If your a player, do you want to play for a coach who's trading up?

    Recruitung is in a quiet period until after the bowl games. Althoug Pryor has apparently been quoted as saying that R-Rod called him this morning.

    Underwhelmed in that I honestly believe Michigan could have done better.

    Overwhelmingly happy as a Buckeye fan however.

    that's what I meant....you'd think Michigan would have more drawing power....that is, of course, had the AD not botched the process in the first place....

    RR is a snake. He'll do anything, at any cost, to get TP to UM. I don't trust him, and I find this hire to be highly suspect by the Michigan people. It should be comical to see this transformation unfold.

    Am I the only one who sees parallels to the Callahan hiring at Nebraska?

    Michigan needed to keep pace with Charlie Weis having the whole bowl season to recruit. :biggrin:

    Please expand on this thought.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    I'm looking forward to seeing how RR handles Mallet. It should be comical to say the least.

    Gimmicky goof of a coach who just doesn't fit the image of the school?

    Well, RR's magic wasn't working at WVU, why would it work at UM...?

    I want to see how the 3-3-5 defense works in the Big 10. Scum couldn't have picked a coach that clashes more with their current system and the way the Big 10 plays football. He also puckers up in rivalry games. Could we really ask for anything more?
