Rich Rodriguez (official thread of last laughs)

Discussion in 'College Football' started by heisman, Sep 27, 2007.

    Taosman Our greatest glory is rising every time we fall.

    There is the thought out there that RR was just fishing and not really serious until WVU called his bluff.
    He may not have really given the job that much thought. But, he can make a big splash if he could snag Pryor or some other major stud to run his offense.
    RR may not fit with the Michigan culture, either.
    This is a huge gamble by Michigan.

    Something along those lines.

    gimmick offense + sieve like defense & soft players + traditional football power = potential disaster

    It just feels like RR is one of the few guys who could actually set TSUN back even farther rather than moving them ahead.

    I can't imagine RR running his offense next year with the current personnel.

    Is he a guy that's locked into his system or adjusts his system to his personnel like Tressel?

    Anxious to see his gameplanning until he gets the kind of players he wants on offense.

    I can't imagine diehard Michigan fans being too happy with this hire, I on the other hand, am ecstatic. The guy tightened up like a drum in the biggest game of the season.

    I say he's gone in three years.

    Adjusts, per Grad's post in the tidbits thread. That goes for defense as well, from what I've heard today.
    We'll see about that if there is no Pryor, which is the context for that pitch. With Bass still rehabbing, Hemingway is their best athlete (ignoring passing) they could put under center.
    They are all dancing in the streets.

    NastyDogg72 You can be with us, or lose to us.

    He owes WVU nothing? This is the University that gave him a substantional raise as well as new facilities now and in the future when he went courting Alabama last year. So what does he do? According to WVU insiders he was doing the same thing now but had finally burnt too many bridges with the Athletics Dept. I have to disagree with you, the most important quality I want in a coach is integrity. The powers that be at tOSU must agree or we wouldn't have Tressel. And you say that tOSU would do the same thing as scUM if we were in the same circumstance, I would have to say I hope not. The lack of class and integrity is the POINT right now in college football because if the last few weeks have shown us anything, it's that coaches don't have to have any morals, just follow the almighty dollar. Let's remember these coaches are supposed to be shaping these student athletes, if this is the example the coaches are going to set how do you think their players are going to turn out. Let's not lose sight of the big picture here, these men are mentors and in alot of cases father figures. They need to be held to some kind of standard.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    Yeah. To say the least.

    I think they're just happy they got a recognizable "big name" guy and haven't really thought it through yet. There are a lot of big question marks surrounding this hire as everyone here is pointing out. It will be fun when the tsun fans come back down to earth and notice some of them.

    Right, we'll just politely wait til after all the bowl games are done and after three weeks' worth of recruits have committed elsewhere or decommitted.

    Teams always hire before the bowl games. I didn't see you bashing Georgia Tech for it. Stop digging.

    Not gambling means hiring Mike Debord. I'll take the gamble.

    Then they're dumber than I even thought.

    The best candidate is still coaching at UC.

    Can you think of anyone who we could have hired that didn't have question marks? I see a lot of naysaying, but, well, you guys are OSU fans and I can't exactly see you guys inclined to line up and praise Bill Martin for a job well done. Goes with the territory.

    I couldn't agree more.

    Is there a coach out there who is more of an antithesis of a "Michigan coach" than Rodriguez?

    I can't think of many.

    Bo has to be rolling in his grave.

    Agreed... talk about somebody to make waves in Ohio recruiting, the lifeblood of UM success. His incident at CMU supposedly took him out of the running. (some sketchy comments about some players in trouble)

    After the past 3-4 weeks that is exactly true.

    How long till Buyer's Remorse really kicks in?

    11/22/08 anyone?
