Despite all available evidence, he's still stuck believing that RR was in contact with UM officials before that Pittsburgh game. Considering that flawed premise is the crux of his reasoning for his conclusion, I think it's safe to ignore him.
Everyone knows that RichRod "threw" the Pitt game -- how else do you explain all of those WVU fumbles and botched zone reads?!
I liked how they used the Rodriguez footnote in the Weasel Bowl paragraph (he isn't even involved in the game) to put his picture on the Page 2 main article banner. Someone knows anything Michigan draws hits....
I saw this and figured there would be some chatter about this over on MGoBlog.
My process went as such: I clicked the article only bc of RR on the cover, didnt read it bc of its length (could it have been any longer? yeesh), went straight to the Weasal bowl section, rolled my eyes and closed the window, cried a little bit inside bc i had wasted one minute of my life, and then wasted 2 more minutes coming over here and writing this.
I need a new hobby.
Rodriguez went 3-9 in his first year at WVU, and both Petrino and Saban entered their jobs with a lot of rebuilding to do. This guy seems to expect overnight results.
It's just as simple as this: Gregg Easterbrook is a grade A, certified, dipshit. He has demonstrated this repeatedly over the past 5-6 years writing about non-Michigan related topics such as "Why Jews are to blame for Hollywood violence". (His answer? Because all they care about is money.)
I thought this was about the Wolverines vs. the Badgers.
Well done, T-Roy. Well done.
Haha I thought the exact same thing except I was confused b/c weasel is not a very endearing term for Badgers and Wolverines.
another example of richrod getting unfairly represented. who really cares? easterbrook is an idiot.
Yeah totally thought this would be about the Badgers v. Wolverines.
I'm deeply saddened to learn that Easterbrook is still employed.
