spot on, as usual.
U-M coach Rich Rodriguez knows it's 2010 or bust
person (radio, tv, etc.) who has fully taken on each of the presumed Rodriguez "scandals"? And carefully examined them? Wouldn't that be a great story? Most average newspaper readers wouldn't expect it. They'd be expecting the same old regurgitated truisms by somebody like Bob Wojnowski.
I'm actually surprised that no one has done it. Start with the laughably phony Justin Boren departure. Look at the South Carolina lawsuits in which Rodriguez and several other investors (football coaches included) were defrauded and hosed in the real estate collapse. Then do a full-contact Fisking of Michael Rosenberg and the Free Press. Throw in the national tempest in a teapot about the "Katrina" comments and how Mark Snyder butchered that story.
I'll give Frank Beckmann some credit for at least challenging Rosenberg in some of his on-air time at WJR. Is there anybody in local media who has challenged Rosenberg and the free press, apart from the blogosphere that very notably includes Brian Cook here at MGoBlog, and Jon Chait's online columns.
But I'll have a lot more respect for people in Wojo's profession when they work harder, do a better job and do more to challenge their own collegues. Right now, the respect level is close to zero.
