Can we please stop using time and energy defending/attacking Rich Rod?
He is no longer part of our football program. We should adopt one of RichRod's classic motifs and only talk about the people relevant to our football program. Quite frankly, it doesn't matter anymore, and I think I speak for a lot of people when I say I don't give two shits about what you have to say about him. (This also means you, Brian)
Instead, let's focus on our current coaches, our current players, and go out there and support our football team. Otherwise, we will have the same rift in our fanbase as we had during the RichRod era. I don't know if any of you have realized, but it has not gotten better, at least not on mgoblog, and a lot of this is because of the subject matter coming from the top.
I know that this isn't exactly a novel post and it doesn't have any new information, but this place has been in shambles lately and I can't click on an MGoBoard topic without being assaulted by RR debate.
I certainly don't think I have the right to tell anyone what to do, but PLEASE consider this next time you find some quote you don't like or some article vaguely referring to RR: it is most likely an extension of the same drivel we've all been talking about for months now.
Now let's gather up the pieces of our football program and do something constructive with it.
Also, neg away if you must. Luckily I have discovered neg invulnerability
EDIT: I apologize if I came off strong but I was just rather annoyed when I wrote this. By no means do I have the right to tell you or Brian what to do. I feel that bye-gones should be bye-gones. The RR era was painful for many and there is no need to re open the wound every time an alumnus says something about it.
I also reserve my right to criticize any media writer, and I'm sure Brian would agree that it is ok to do so.
