Alright, so I knew I loved the Rodriguez hire when it was made, and I've been a supporter all along, and now that support is bearing fruit. I mean, really, it's been 5 weeks since we heard anything about a hot seat, and for good measure. I think we'll beat state, but even playing them respectably close should be enough to keep things quiet for now, since it seems like state is pretty good this year.
But I was just reading an article by Andy Staples (as linked in mgo.lico.us), and there were some figures I guess I hadn't realized.
The first time a QB passed for 2000 and rushed for 1000 yards in a season? Rodriguez. Pass for 300 and rush for 100 in a game? Rodriguez? And a million other stats that Pat White and now Denard have set since? All Rodriguez.
I don't know, I guess I knew most of this, but seeing all the stats in one spot, I was suddenly just struck by the idea that we hired a freaking evil genius to run our football team. You have no chance, Mr. Bond. Our schemes and techniques are far too advanced. MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Really, lets just hear it for our evil mastermind. I can see him sitting in a pseudo-futuristic alcove now, gently stroking a Persian cat, watching video of some as yet undiscovered HS Sophomore QB, performing cold, concise mental calculations about how he can turn that kid into the first 4000 - 3000 performer.
