I like Teddy Greenstein from the Chicago Tribune. He handed out his Big 10 "awards" and Rodriguez got one.
"The Charles Barkley "Honesty" Award: Rich Rodriguez. The Internet headline screamed: "Rodriguez tells Michigan fans to 'get a life.' " Not quite. Rodriguez said of the message-board maniacs who take personal shots at his players: "You almost want to tell them to get a life."
Smart thing to say? Nope. True? Yep."
That is a pretty reasonable take on it all. The first one I ever saw from a reporter.
Edit: Apparently the quote tag no longer works on forum posts?
