Rittenberg posts Rich's statement that the rumors about defensive staff changes are false. He also includes this quote from David Brandon:
Athletic director Dave Brandon isn't ready to share his thoughts on the Rodriguez-led program that has won just four of 20 conference games and 13 of 32 overall.
"I'll comment on the state of the program after the season," Brandon said Monday morning. "I know the coaches and the players are working hard to get better."
That does not sound like "Rich will be here for a long time" ... It sounds like there is a crack in the steadfast support. (Rich didn't look too comfortable Saturday night either.)
