I know. I know. Nobody cares about offense, and "It's all about defense GODAMMIT!"
Alright already. I get it. Sheesh!
As many fellow UM fans are surely sharpening their pitchforks and drenching torches in kerosene this weekend, I just thought it was interesting to note that Rodriguez's 3rd team at Michigan racked up 412 points this year. That's his 3rd best scoring offense since he became a head coach in 2001 at West Virginia. The previous bests:
1st - 2007: West Virginia 11-2 (515 points)
2nd - 2006: West Virginia 11-2 (505 points)
3rd - 2010: Michigan 7-5 (412 points)
4th - 2005: West Virginia 11-1 (385 points)
On the other hand, Michigan's defense surrendered 406 points to the opposition. This is RR's worst ever scoring defense as a head coach by a wide margin (104 points).
Rodriguez's worst scoring defense at WVU was his 2nd team (2002, 9-4 record) when the Mountaineers gave up 302 points (13 games). Rodriguez's defenses at Michigan have surrendered 347 (2008), 330 (2009) and 406 (2010). Pretty damning, Godammit.
