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.
