things go poorly
I work with an Ole Miss alum who just showed me this great write-up comparing the two schools, our shared hatred of all things MSU, and how UM stomped them in the Gator Bowl in 1991. Enjoy.
I've been as critical of him as anyone here, but Rosenberg IMO makes sense in today's article. Basically, his point is that waiting until January doesn't make any sense unless you are planning to fire RR. Otherwise why make him and his assistants twist in the wind?
"You can make a reasonable argument for keeping Rodriguez. He has coached only three years, his offense is working, his record got better every year, etc. But you cannot make a reasonable argument for dangling him over the edge of a cliff for five weeks, then keeping him. There is a reason nobody else in college sports operates this way. Even if the plan is to keep Rodriguez and make changes to the coaching staff, it makes much more sense to announce now that Rodriguez will be back.
Brandon is a smart man. And when a smart person does a seemingly stupid thing, you have to look at it from every angle to see what you're missing. No matter how I look at this, only one thing makes sense:
Brandon has decided to fire Rodriguez."
He may be dead wrong, as he's been many many times before, but this makes sense to me.
I'm not sure what to make of this. LSU is basically the anti-Michigan (92nd in total offense, 8th in total defense). I remain confident that Denard can win this game with his arm. Also, the MSU D seemed to be worn down after only 50 snaps. Without checking, I would guess that Michigan averages about 70.
Note: Title changed from "TomVH, Does LB Curtis Grant has Michigan as his leader?" due to grammer police intervention.
This is from the Bleacher Report so take it for what it is worth.
“I have had a chance to speak with [Michigan] coaches Robinson and Braithwaite. I like both coaches, they are good guys. Michigan is losing their middle linebacker so I am keeping an eye on that," Grant said.
New Years Day can't come soon enough, but for now a nice brief question and answer session with Bulldogblitz.com's Logan Lowery
