Right, because coaching transitions usually go super smooth.
My point is, we have NO IDEA how these next five games are going to play out. Regardless of how you feel about Rodriguez right now, he's here. Deal with it. Enjoy watching the team. Will you still be complaining if we go 5-0 to end the year and get into a great bowl game and go 11-2 on the season? It's not likely, but let's just wait and see.
I haven't once said that Rodriguez should get a five year extension. I haven't once said that he isn't skating on thin ice. The fact is that he's still the coach here, and I'm going to support him while that's the case and the team is still improving.
Your argument about the fans giving Rodriguez more time than a lot of the players they've thrown under the bus just doesn't make sense. For one, I haven't seen many players thrown under the bus. Two, Rodriguez's success isn't in tied to him putting on 20 pounds and finally figuring out how to wrap up on a tackle. He proved he can coach when he was at WVU (yeah yeah, Big East, blah blah blah).
If Rodriguez's offense was sputtering consistently I'd agree with you, but it's not. They're putting up monster yards and shooting themselves in the foot.
As far as how much he gets paid and whether he's shitting the bed or not, do you really think that David Brandon and Bill Martin haven't gotten more emails asking them to fire RR than to keep him? I have no problem with him making 3 million a year for doing his job 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Coaching a college football team is one of the most stressful jobs in the country.
