Tempted to cut up the Rhett Rodriguez highlights, degrade the video quality, lay down a rap track and see if I can get Lane Kiffin to offer him.
Inside Michigan Football Episode 10
Possibly because I'm semi-drunk after a party...."irregardless" is NOT a word. Some comedian (whose name excapes me right now in this state) made that word up in the 1900s (ealry 1900s) to make fun of dumb people.
RR is not dumb. If anyone is dumb right now, it's me. Still, had to point that out. Hope no errors, cause I shan't check them until tomorrow.

C'mon, I hate it when people point out stupid stuff like this. You knew what he meant, didn't you? Yeah, it's not a "real" word, but it's obviously not a problem if you know what he means without any confusion. It seems like when people nitpick grammar and language, they're really just being classist. Who gives a fuck if he says "irregardless" all the time? Old habits die hard.
Now-That-Sober: I agree with you. Is there a way for me to take my former post off? I can't even seem to edit it to oblivion right now?
Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.
It appears you were correct about the comedian shit though. Not too shabby, for a drunk.
Dude you totally stole my thunder. This topic comes up every 4 months I feel, and according to the dictionary it's a word. FWIW, so is "bootylicious" right? But yea, it seems to be a word.
lol RR's kid is awesome, talking about how he loves to hit ppl and whatnot!! And also mentioning how he'll play whatever position the coaches want him to. I half expected him to talk about having a hard edge, and being all in. He's a chip off the old block.
very fortunate to have such good broadcasters.
Just me or is Rhett huge for his age?
I don't know, but the kid needs to learn to run north and south.
Rhett, our first commit for 2018 but can he kick?
That's from spending time with Uncle Barwis !
Rhett has a pretty mature-sounding voice for his age, too.
I love watching the background info for the radio broadcast- hearing Beckmann is one thing but watching him make the calls during the game was great
with how well-spoken Rhett is. How many 6th graders can speak so intelligently?
I really hope Coach Rodriguez is here a very long time.
The two best parts
1) Racquel talking about spending time with the family, then they zoom in on her texting.
2) RR telling his son that he needs to run as a QB
She was texting our recruits.
This was the best Inside Michigan Football in a long time. Well done!
Can't be sure, anyone know what these things are on our QBs?
They are for a helmet cam. At the beginning of the season they were talking about this on the show, how they use it as a coaching tool for the quarterbacks to see where they are looking during the play. They also attached it to the helmet of one of the real tall guys on the team when he ran out onto the field, in the huddle, on the sidelines, etc.
The RR family segment was great. You dont often think of the sacrifces the family makes during the season. Rhett was so pumped to have his dad there. And that kid is a MANster on the field.
