I hope we keep Rodriguez even if we lose out through the Big Ten schedule. I think this team has shown enough promise with very young talent to let him stay and develop us into a powerhouse. There wasn't a peep of doubt when we were 5-0. Now we've lost to TWO RANKED TEAMS and everyone's off the bandwagon.
I'm sporting a new avy in my support of Rich Rod (it's from the 2009 spring game, I met him in the parking lot while he was going in). I mean, Christ, everyone was going to be happy if we won 7 or 8 games this year. That's still VERY possible.
I don't think we're going to lose out, hell I think we win at least three more, because I've got faith in our players and coaches to shrug off these losses to two quality opponents and focus on the remaining schedule.
I think part of the problem was all the OMGDENARD hype (which I was a part of I'll admit) and we set ridiculous standards for this team. I knew we still had a lot of work and I wasn't expecting miracles. But these meltdowns are increasing and frankly I'm sick of you doubters. Go watch 300 and put on some green and white. Rodriguez will be let go when he deserves to be let go. But he's only lost to two ranked opponents so far this year. Why don't we start being rational?
Why the hell anyone begs for their coach to be fired is beyond me. You don't have any say in the matter (well...you shouldn't if your AD has any balls). You should be rooting your damned asses off every week and show your full support for the entire team. Now...if the coach was just plain an idiot it would be different. But that's not the case here. It's not the case at all.
We've put up crazy stats through these seven games on offense. Defense needs a lot of work, but hell Rome wasn't built in a day. Say what you want about the quality of our opponents, but how often have we had a ridiculous schedule for the first seven games?
Stop this whining or GTFO. Sorry for the rant, I'm just angered at Michigan fans and having to deal with all the pointing and laughing going on by State fans. GO BLUE.
