As I am sitting here and watching the Cincinnati/Rutgers game, I am reminded of the rumors that were swirling before Rodriguez was hired a couple of years ago. Schiano was one of them for a while, and I'm sorry, but I have never been convinced of this guy's ability to coach. He would be and is great for a place like Rutgers, but can you imagine him coaching at Michigan? And then there were the rumors about Kirk Ferentz. I had a buddy who was excited about that opportunity, but for me, no thank you. He is doing great at Iowa, but he is not a Michigan head coach. In spite of all the journalist-driven allegations this past week, I have to sit here and be thankful we got the coach we did. The guy is a winner. I've got nothing against Schiano and Ferentz and others like them, but I'm just glad they're not dressed in the maize and blue.
"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
