I've liked RR and still do. I liked Carr. I even like Harbaugh, but he seems to be kind-of a douche now. Loved him when he was a player but did you see him have one of his guys fake an injury to slow down Oregon? Or going for two points when he was up by a lot? Just seems like his ego is so large I'm not sure he is cut out for college football in the long run.
So many of the RR haters just hate but don't have any viable alternative candidates. There are only a handful of top flight coaches and they are no coming here if we cut RR loose early.
btw does anyone think Joe Paterno does any coaching anymore? On TV they are always saying "what will Joe do" but he almost never talks to any assistants or players. I think he looks like a bystander on the sidelines.
