siap. Some pretty lame questions so far, and also a reference to 'Big Blue'. Have at it.
Ask RichRod on SI.com
Hopefully if that's all the questions they get they just decide to scrap the whole thing.
Asking the general public for questions appears to be going about as well as you'd expect.
I have been a resident of West Virginia since 1967 and can no longer wear any of my Wolverine support. Not in pride. Do you feel any shame in what you did before the Bowl games in 2008?
Yup. This is why political "open town-hall meetings" plant people with questions.
like, "Keep the government away from my Medicare!" -- that comment would be about on par with some of the questions listed
btw this isn't a political statement. Pure, unadulterated stupidity is beyond politics. /disclaimer
I've been saying the whole year Denard Robinson is the most overrated player in college football. Heck, he even had the overwhelming support of the nation in a SN poll asking who they'd pick to lead them in a big game. The truth came out when Denard played against a decent defense in Michigan State. Can he perform against good Big Ten defenses, or can we expect more 3 int., 84 yd on 21 carry games?
You know, I'm reading this and all I see is the following:
herp derp derp derp herp derp de derp derrrrrrrrrrrr herp herp de herpaderp derp?
Yeah, like losing the "wear[ing]" of this slapdick's Michigan "support" is going to reallllly hurt Michigan.
They need to get a more recent photo of Coach Rodriguez. The one on the site is from his WVU days.
well, cut them some slack, he's flown totally under the radar since the day he was hired. /s
I asked this
Michigan State decided to keep contain with their DEs every zone read play they saw. When are we going to start exploiting that by adding the mid-line option and keying off one of the tackles instead?
If everyone upvotes it, maybe there's a tiny chance it even gets asked.
Nice! We'll get enough good questions in there to get something worthwhile answered if we stick together.
I think I'll register. Your question is one a lot of people would like to ask, including the esteemed Mr Cook, from what he said on WTKA.
Better yet, though, I wish we could downvote any question that refers to Michigan as "Big Blue." I like progress and I like evolution, but calling Michigan "Big Blue" is neither.
Q: "Do you have any regrets from what you did before the bowl game in 2008"
A: "Not really, you see I did this thing where I asked the AD to pay my assistant coaches the going rate for assistant coaches at the time and he told me to go fuck myself, so I asked around to schools looking for head coaches if they could pay my assistants a reasonable amount and sure enough Michigan liked what it saw and hired me. The crazy thing is when you take a new job you sort of lose your players for your old team. tehy tend to think that you turned your back on them when in relaity I was just trying to do my assistants justice for all the hard wok they put in. Can I ask you a question? What is it like going through the world with an extra chromosome? I mean I know a few of you have had a good life, Corky from the hit show "Life Goes On" comes to mind, but for the vast majority of you I have to think life is pretty hard. Is it painful having no teeth? Is your sister really that great in bed, I mean think of the genetic consequences for Gods sake. Have you ever had a job and then, you know, gotten a better one? Did you ever go back to your co-workers at that old shitty job and say "Hey guys, I am super sorry about taking that great job with higher pay and opportunities to better my and my families life? Do you ever do those things you fucking dipfuck moronic piece of mother fucking shit? Go fuck yourself.
/drops the mic
That would be the
best. answer. ever.
the bit about Downs Syndrome was a bit much for me to stomach.
Yea... sometimes my comedy offends. Sincere apologies.
He's a mongoloid.... Mongoloid....
I'd seriously pay $10000 with no regrets to hear Coach Rodriguez give this response.
Dear Coach Rodriguez:
It has come to my attention that many Michigan fans are desperately hoping that you'll fail sooner rather than later. They'd like to hire Jim Harbaugh, Les Miles, or basically anyone outside your coaching tree. Brady Hoke is on the list. Ron "0-18" English, too.
Would you prefer that these people call you a:
C. moron hillbilly
Stupid questions deserve stupid answers. These are the actual questions posted so far.
If I may be so bold, why did you copy and paste it in all bold?
That's just how it copied.
saying that all of these are stupid? I guess I'm a little confused. A couple of them actually seem pretty legitimate.
I would actually be curious to know which of the questions that I provided joke answers to you found to be legit? Not asking to be a jerk - just curious, because I thought that the ones I answered were all laughable.
I thought you were saying EVERY question was bad. Sorry, guess I'm a little slow this week!
Could you imagine if Lloyd were doing this:
Q: Coach. People say that Michigan's defense is holding Michigan back from succeeding in the defensive minded B10. Do you agree with that?
A: Why would you ask a stupid question like that?
Q: Coach. Denard has put up some amazing numbers this season. His running has looked great, and he was leading in the Heisman race, but MSU apparently figured out the blueprint to stop him. Once you go up against more Big 10 defenses, can we expect more games with 3 interceptions and under 100 rushing yards?
A: /angry stare
Q: Coach, Michigan's defense is currently amongst the worst in the country against the pass and in terms of total yard and points. How would you describe the current state of the defense?
Yeah, this seems like it does nothing more than invite all the naysayers and haters to bitch and complain about one overblown, unsubstantiated issue with RR or another, creating yet another media-generated forum for negativity. Give it a rest!
The timing of the whole thing certainly contributes to my distaste for this this whole idea.
SI should be editing questions/comments. To allow some of that grammatically-challenged crap on there makes SI look lame and unprofessional. I wonder if RR knew idiots were going to be allowed to comment.
considers idiots to be as much a part of his life as the sports writers.
These repetitive questions are getting really boring. It's getting to be time for RR to tell these smart-ass, ankle-biters what they can go do with themselves. He's put up with more than enough.
A few good questions in there, especially the one about the mid-line veer. But jeez-louise I'm almost starting to wonder why people get into coaching if this is the kind of crap they have to put up with.
Well since the deadline is the 19th. Why don't we just decide on 10 questions then upvote them all to the top. I see right now mejunglechop's question is at the top with 10 votes. It can't be that hard for us to control this thing.
Yeah. Even if we just vote on the 10 best ones that show up there it will be better than leaving it to the masses.
[P. Rod] will keep the name until “the goddamned cicadas stop clapping their ass-cheeks together in the secondary and come up with either a tackle or at least a picture of a tackle.”
