As much as I'm sick of the CC topic, I do find this viewpoint interesting. If Brandon was to decide to keep RR but force him to bring in a new defensive staff, doing so before the bowl game probably wouldn't put us in a very good position to win that game. If the plan is to keep RR, I think it is very important for Michigan to win that game, because it will increase public support for RR. If we were to fire our defensive staff now and lose in the bowl game, it would just be another excuse and everyone is getting tired of excuses.
Having said that (Curb your Enthusiasm anyone?), if this is DB's plan, it sucks that we are going to miss out on a lot of good defensive replacement candidates.
