"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
Well, it's been a crazy, frustrating and at times wild ride under Rich Rod. But you know what, it just isn't meant to be here. He's a good coach. I firmly believe that. But there is just too much working against him. From poor recruiting and development late in the Carr era, players not buying in and transfering, the local media working against him because he's not a "Michigan Man," to just plain bad luck. I'm still a RR supporter, but it's time to move on. It's just not working out here. There have been signs of progress, sure. There haven't been enough of them, IMO. I'm ready to move on. I'm ready to see RR move on so that maybe he can get a fresh start and just get this pressure off of him for the first time in 3 years. I want Harbaugh here at any cost. Hopefully, one day we can see JH square off against RR in a BCS bowl. Anyways, I'm done talking now. I'm hang up and listen, and as always, GO BLUE.
So rumor has it that RR may be heading to Maryland. This is most likely the case if he were to get fired from Michigan. I can't see RR leaving Michigan for Maryland if DB gives him a vote of confidence, but we'll see.
Sorry if this has already been posted, haven't seen it on the board.
I don't know if this has ever been posted on here, but I just ran across it and thought I would share it. A little long, but great speech!
Oh and someone please take the audio off this and use it for a UM season highlight video. It would be perfect. Because we are CHAMPIONS
I don't mean to come off as a braggart here, but I thought you all might be interested in the holiday e-letter that I received from my new friend, Coach Rodriguez, and the entire Michigan football family. He sent me the below message last night to express his appreciation of my support of the program and to personally wish me a happy holiday season.

I guess its safe to assume that I will be getting lots of free tickets next year! So I got that going for me, which is nice.
Basically what Tim said now available in convenient RR talkin' format.
