Rich Rodriguez staring with fire in his eyes after Illinois goes up 45-38, meanwhile GERG picks his nose.
Stern. Stern, but fair.
him but it should not be open season on him. He has not had much luck and the D was going to be bad regardless. Let's show a little class and support.
Next year will be better and there is a part of me that kind of hopes he stays DC and gets some redemption.
The rest of you should smack the part of you that wants GERG to stay upside the head. The man has never had success at the college level.
I attended the game on Saturday and was extremely impressed with the passion/emotion that GERG shows. He was firing up defensive guys during the pre-game warmups, slapping guys on their backsides, and was very animated on the sideline. His failures are definitely without lack of trying. If he is given another year, I think you will see much more production from the defense next year . . .

If he is given another year, I take back everything nice I've said about Rich Rod and David Brandon.
Been to every game this year (except ND) and he is always out on the field being emotional to his defense ... maybe he is simply a frustrated cheerleader ! He has always been supportive ... not the issue.
Did you catch RR's stares during the game ?? because those have happened all year too.
Go Blue !
The defense gave up 65 points and someone took the time to post the D-coordinator picking his nose on the sideline. Don't over-think this ...
I'm still not sure if that's snot or jelly
He licked it off of his lip and ate it, swear to God. It was pretty epic.
What is Jim Brandstatter doing on the ND sideline in a referee hat?
Oh no ... is that a bubble no less ? OMG !!!
Go Blue !
Note to self: from now on, never read MGoBoard while eating.
over GERG's shoulder is reverse-creeping.
Who is that? It doesn't even look like a natural motion
Is that RR or a statue of RR. I have bever seen a man stand so still while everyone around him is moving around like that.
My hands were steady
My eyes were clear and bright
My walk had purpose
My steps were quick and light
And I held firmly
To what I felt was right
Like a rock
Like a rock. standin' arrow straight
Like a rock, chargin' from the gate
Like a rock, carryin' the weight
Like a rock
Is GERG going to eat it?
But if it went on you'd see him wipe it off on his pants.
GIF it or it didn't happen.
Why in the f- did Miles put grass in his mouth? He is a weird bird.
He likes to have a post-game snack.
I hope we can give GERG something to be happy about before the season ends.
Sad Keanu < Sad GERG meme.
Not a good defense against the cold of November.
that's just a defensive call to the linebackers .... knock the snot out of em !!!
Go Blue !
I dunno, I think he was going for the fake wipe and he's got it saved on his finger for a snack later.
My question exactly. I am just going to go ahead and assume that he is a booger eater.
Caddyshack.... I've got 10 that says he eats it.
I wonder if GERG found a good one.
On loop it looks like Bruce Tall is lunging in from behind and stabbing him, which has probably entered his mind on more than one occasion.
we've seen out of this defense this year.
Digging for gold. To bad he didn't eat it too.
His eyes... they don't move.
I actually wanted him back next year until I saw this.
Not that they're many left but all those remaining in the "give Gerg another year" camp should be shown this pic. Nothing more really can be said.
Nice. Every freaking time I try and comment from the Crackberry I end up making some major grammatical faux paus.
"Ice in my veins. Blood in my eyes. Hate in my heart. Love in my mind."
There were breakdowns..sure, but they actually tackled and had 3 and outs.
Remember when UConn only scored 10? I liked that performance better.
I'm not sure about best performance to date, but it was certainly better than the points scored by Illinois would make you think it was. Illinois had 16 possessions (HUGE number of possessions) in regulation and only scored 5 TDs. Their longest drive was 78 yards, and the next longest was 60. The M offense put the defense on the spot with 5 turnovers (not to mention the poor kick coverage), and the defense responded.
4 drives starting in Michigan territory yielded only 18 points. 4 more drives started outside the Illinois 40, and those yielded only 14 points. The 8 possessions starting inside the Illinois 40 yielded only 13 points. Contrast that with Michigan scoring 42 points on their 15 drives starting inside the Michigan 40.
Not to mention the D gave the offense a chance to win in regulation by forcing the Illinois punt from their own 27 with nearly a minute to play. And they allowed only one Illinois drive in excess of 28 yards in the second half.
Well I am not in the "keep Gerg another year" crowd," however I do feel sorta bad for him. You can tell RR is beside himself and is almost desensitized to the horrible Defense. Gerg is fighting for his professional career and all he can do is pick a booger.
The look of sheer, unadulterated anger on RR's face is scary. The defeated look on Gergs face is sad in a way. I have never heard anything negative about him as a man. I feel sorry for him as a person. I do not feel sorry for him as a DC.
Both of you.
I was going to say Wade Phillips and Brad Childress know the feeling but after today only Brad is left.
He thought that GERG dealt with the booger as well as anyone has ever dealt with a booger. He was quick, discrete, and efficient. One motion, and it was GONE. He's really excited to see how his skills develop over the next few years; he could really be something special.
Can't tell if you're talking the booger or GERG getting booted out of Schembechler Hall in a few weeks. Please advice.
If I had photoshop skillz (and photoshop on my computer), I'd find the Austin Powers joke here.
Looks like a play call.... Gerg says slide left , tight coverage, get a pick and return right... see simple the man is a genius.
I like how many ballboys are walking around there, all wearing the same thing. They're like a bunch of maize-and-blue Christmas elves.
I know we won and he's cleaning a booger, but watching these looping gifs is pulling at my heartstrings. Poor GERG. I'm sure he meant well, but I feel like everything was stacked against him.
I will miss his standout sideline fashion and coiffure.
...I like to RANDOMLY alternate all CAPS and ELIPSIS too...
... i DID...
Dude, he's picking his nose. It's funny because it's gross.
Calm down and enjoy the humor. I'm laughing my ass off at work - don't try to ruin this for me please.
Surprising his cranium didn't cave in...
He looks at him and decides that where he was going wasn't worth it. Classic.
