I have a coworker who is in his 50's who approached me today about coach Rodriguez. He wants Rod out ASAP. He believes wholeheartedly the Rosenberg article and really refused to listen to any of the critiques of the article. When I brought up the 'voluntary clause' when counting hours, he said no respectable coach would go above 20 hours - I told him I'd bet Bo did and the 2008 NCAA report where over 600 schools athletes were interviewed and the average week load was 44.8 hours for football players -- he refused to hear anything.
The thing that got to me, is that he said that he and his friends that are older alumni are thinking about booing Rod Saturday. He seemed to indicate that it was a decent amount of people that he knew that were thinking of booing Rod all his age.
The support for Rod seems much stronger with the younger generation.
If you are going to the game and support Rod, please cheer him as loud as possible when he is announced to show that there is still strong support for the coach. Join in loudly if any pro-Rod chants starts.
