Mike Lantry, 1972
Dhani Jones had some pretty harsh remarks today about Rich Rodriguez on Rome is Burning. To paraphrase, he said that to accomplish anything you need to win within two years. The comments struck me as representative of some of the more disgruntled parts of the fanbase as he admitted his patience had already run out. Obviously this is a product of going 8-16 and winning will cure all, but it is still frustrating to see. Dhani, unlike Amani Toomer, obviously still is proud to consider himself a Michigan Man, but this is yet another athlete to come out in criticism of Rich Rod. Hopefully, we can win 10 games this fall and shut everyone up.
Fuck him. I know nobody can expect this man to say anything remotely intelligent, but it's incredibly frustrating and insulting to watch his show and have him bash Rich Rod for the "Get a life" comment while taking it completely out of context. Cheers to Brian for posting the full text of the quote earlier.
The guy is such a pompous asshole, and when he's falsely bashing Rich Rod for telling fans who make personal attacks on him and players to get a life based on a quote whose context he didn't care to research, it makes me want to asplode.
