Everyone knows the past two weeks haven't been pretty.
There are lots of reasons why.
One of them may or may not be coaching.
I think its a worthwhile question as to when we should legitimately start holding the coaching in whole and in part accountable for what is going on.
No matter what, we have this coaching through this season, for better or for worse. Dave Brandon is a competent businessman, he's going to be considering all options, so no matter how things turn out, this guy will be prepared.
I might reccomend that we hold off on discussion as per the quality of our coaching staff until the end of the season. By all means, arguing decisions made by our coaching staff is completely legitimate, but extending that to calling for the heads of our coaching staff is premature.
Case in point: If we go 10-2 nobody here will complain.
However, if we go 5-7 obviously it would be a different story.
IN CONSIDERING THE ABOVE,
Please remember that the season is at least 12 games long, and a very critical 5 of those have yet to be played. Ultimately you can't judge a Michigan coach's season until he's played Ohio State anyhow, so give it until then before calling for his head.
AT THAT POINT, HOWEVER,
As coach of this team, Rich Rodriguez and by extension, all his staff, should be held completely responsible for every aspect of this season, for better or for worse. At that point, we should remember that we are Michigan, and while bad stuff has happened to us this season, we should hold our coaching staff to Michigan standards in accordance with the situation. We should have Michigan expectations of this team, and I think there are certain things we need to see, given that, to evaluate how well this staff has done with the program at the end of the season.
TL:DR - Stop calling for our coaches' head while we still have a bye week and 5 games of football to be played.
