In an audio interview that John Bacon of wtka had with RR yesterday the question was raised about the DC search. It was a pretty vanilla interview overall, but he did shed some light on what he wanted as the base defense for the Wolverines.
The link is below. Enjoy.
Okay, once and for all...anyone see tonight's ESPN tag after we lost to DUKE? And I quote, "Duke DRUBS UM to win 2K Classic".
First of all, we lost. Were we DRUBBED? We were down at halftime 39-31. We are a "surprise" by their own naming, and then we were DRUBBED? I've had it. Once and for all, I will NO longer watch ESPN, bookmark their fucking .Com, or support that effing channel. Every single motherfucker over there LOVES to pile on when we Michigan loses. I put up with it during "the horror", because, ultimately NO publicity is bad publicity, and even if we were over-rated going into last season, we shouldn't have lost to App. State. Yeah, I get it. I get it again. Seeing the blocked kick 2,467 times all last season, YEAH I GET IT ASSHOLES. Mark May and Lou Holtz? Chris Spielman and Kirk Herbstreit? One thing after another, these fuckers HATE U of M, and do everything in their power except come right out and SAY it. I'm done. Let Griese, Tirico, or Desmond cover Michigan from now on, but otherwise leave us alone, and let us turn the volume down on the idiots at the Big Ten network.
Fuck you ESPN. You go to hell. You go to hell and YOU DIE.
(in addition, what is "UM"?? U-Maryland? U-Missouri? U-Motherfuckers? We are the U "OF" M. We are MICHIGAN. We are not some bastardized UM initials.
Fuck you ESPN.

Well, we're loosing. and horribly, even though we just scored, we have a long way to go. But I do understand [tactically] why RR has a team full of red shirts and underclass, besides the obvious reasons. If you were the new coach, wouldn't you want depth to grow with you and learn your program? We're staring a whole new gig here, the spread option is an awesome tool when used with the right talent. I am very encouraged with the new talent I see coming in and committing who may be able to acclimate to RR's spread.
But these fresh players need to get a wind of what he's is working with; but that will take time, but as each successive class moves on, our offense will see that many more educated on and experienced with the Michigan brand of the spread offense. This is what I look forward to... but it's hard though when you love your colors and your team. This is the hardest game I've had to watch in a long time, if we pull it out that'll be one thing, but we might as well get it out of our system now.
