3&O has left me outraged at the pathetic levels to which some at Michigan stooped to scuttle RichRod's program ( and didn't care that that meant scuttling the program as well). But here are some counter points:
1. Three separate universities have somehow screwed over Rich Rod and none of it was his fault ( Clemson not giving him the HC job, WVU and UM). I am a 2 sides to a coin guy and find this hard to believe.He does not seem like the kind of guy that can look inwards and learn from his mistakes. I think the bunch of folks he hangs out with re-inforce the "everybody is out to get us" mentality.
2. Loyalty to Tony effing Gibson (JT Floyd and D.Warren ought to send him a giant finger for christmas every year)
3. GERG (aargh I cannot believe this clown has Michigan on his resume now)
and finally the point of this post...that quote Rod gave about Vince Lombardi...how does that sound now? I guess it only took Greg Mattison to coach these guys up to be a top ten defense! And he had only one spring and fall practice to do it with. Imagine if we had Vince Lombardi!
