"Bottom line is, I take full responsibility for the demise of the Michigan program," Shafer, 41, said by phone Tuesday afternoon. "I accept all the responsibility. [By the way, I am also responsible for the economy***]."
Doesn't anyone else find this quote totally insane? Sorry if it has already been discussed. (***OK, OK, I added the economy part, sorry)
Is this some sort of d-ccordinator macho talk? I'm a man, and I'll take responsibility. Or is this some sort of mutual agreement, Rodriguez would issue a statement saying Shafer was a great coach, and not fire him, and in return Shafer admits to being the reason John Thompson is slow? And the reason the offense, for the most part, was bad. And walk-on QBs? Seriously, why would someone say that?
Anyway, I'm surprised it's made no buzz on this site. So: here it is, discuss.
