yes, in a vacuum. however, the Rodriguez experiment proved that a DA DA DA "MICHIGAN MAN" needs the job, right now.... because who the hell would want this job after Rodriguez got splattered all over town? I'm still picking pieces of Rodriguez out of my hair after this whole debacle....but seriously I think Brandon played it safe because he realized Numero Uno is unite the fan base again before anything fantastic starts happening. Hire another outsider would've been hard to justify to everyone who just contributed to tearing RR a new asshole.
I just hope the precedent this sets isn't that the best coaches will never want to coach for Michigan because of what has recently transpired. I personally find RR as guilty as anyone else for the divorce of this marriage but I know many across the country don't read it that way.
Hoke better win 5 MNC and go 10-0 against OSU or else.
