- I think all players should respect or, at the very least, not publicly bash any current or former coach of Michigan. Tradition and all that.
- No one said he "must say nice things about RR." That's a classic red herring. As a player, keep your mouth shut if you hate/hated Hoke, RR, Carr, Bo, whoever.
- Disregarding 1 and 2, it's more about unity with the team. That comment will seriously piss off people on the team that would have/still would run through a brick wall for RR, coach or not. It's not good for RJS's fit on the team. It's not good for the team dynamic. It also puts Hoke et al in an awkward situation.
Basically, nothing good can come of it. A lot of people went NUTS when Arnett's brother said something similar in his Youtube videos. Having it come from an actual commit should be considered much worse.
