- I am not saying RR is Pete Carroll, or that Michigan in the 2010s will be USC in the 2000s.
- I fully acknowledge Carroll's horrendous USC debut lasted 7 games, not two seasons.
But if you are badly in need of humor, levity, and a thin ray of hope--read these archived 2001 articles, have a chuckle, and pray that in 2016 we can be having the same laugh reading 2008-09 articles about Rodriguez and Michigan.
