I'm figuring there's going to be an onslaught of negativity toward RichRod after today's debacle. It really was a bad day for Michigan and the football team (not too great for hoops, either). But I want to write to Brandon and tell him that I support the coach for at least one more year. For me, the calculus is pretty simple: a pattern of improvement against considerable odds and the chance to show, with a maturing team, that he can win. If we're changing horses we might as well do it a year from now, as RichRod's kids begin to move out of the program. Harbaugh can go screw up in the NFL, which won't be as much fun as Michigan would be anyway, and come here with NFL cache after fooling around there for a while; it doesn't follow that we'll never get him if we don't strike now.
Has anyone got Brandon' s email address? (When you look up AD at UMich Athletics, surprisingly, a picture of Martin comes up--not super-professional, or expected, given that Brandon has elevated the office considerably since coming on board.)
Thanks in advance, and I hope others will consider following suit.
