Mike Lantry, 1972
I am sure that there will be numerous posts criticizing RR as a coach. While I agree with those criticisms, this is not the subject of this post. Rather, my criticism is with some statements that RR has made to the press.
Watching this game, one of the announcers commented that RR said to him that he hoped to find a FG kicker on the trip to Penn State. It sounded like ajoking comment, but if this is what he said, than he is an ass. OUr FG kickers are not good. Fine, we know. But they are young men coming to practice every day to try to help M win. How do you think they feel hearing RR say things like that? How do they feel when RR says (earlier this year) that he would welcome students to cme and try out for the kicker job. Talk about undermining a kid's confidence.
More importantly, if I were a parent of a recruit, and I heard that RR mad statements like that publicly, I would think twice about sending my son to play for him.
Have at it:
The defense is the issue at hand not the offense, or the recruiting. So why call for RR's head when he is doing all that he can to get this team back into shape. Gre Robinson has shown time and time again that he does not have what it takes to coach a defense! I will always stand behing the head coach because I am devoted to Michigan Football!! All we need is a defense and we are well on our way to winning the Big10 again.
FIRE GREG ROBINSON!!!
hey, am i the only one who thought it really looked like RR's eyes were all teared up during the end of the game?
they kept cutting in for close ups of him, and either he has quite the twinkle in his eye or he was really tearing up.
- Matt Millen as the Lions' GM
- Ryan Leaf playing quarterback in the NFL
- The "boom goes the dynamite" guy doing the evening news
Feel free to add on.
I have it on good authority that Coach Rod ordered this from Amazon during halftime:
Unfortunately it didn't arrive quickly, but will make for good summer reading. Time to invent the "spread" of defense!
