Now that the season is done, and Coach Rod is locked in for another year, I wanted to see some thoughts on what should be done between now and the 2010 opener. This applies to lineups, staff changes, athletic department and their policies, and things about the stadium.
Some of mine:
Rich should objectively evaluate each member of his staff, and give them the boot if they aren't pulling their weight. I think he should look around for an offensive coordinator to gauge interest and then dump Calvin McGee if he finds a good replacement. Some of the playcalling hasn't necessarily been "bad," but questionable for the game situation. They also should hire a special teams coach to help with the coverage, since they've finally got the ball-catching figured out. And with Fred Jackson leaving, Rich should possibly make the hypothetical new Offensive coordinator the assistant coach.
Greg Robinson should definitely not be fired, because I think with no freshman starters next year, he should be able to get the kind of defense he wants. Especially if Warren stays for his senior year.
My starters at the offensive skill positions: Forcier, Brown, Roundtree, Stonum, Odoms, Koger
As soon as the new AD is hired, they should (a) get rid of the current season ticket buy-in system and (b) make an executive decision to stop the god-awful RAWK music and (c) teach the students to stop chanting "You Suck" on third down defensive stops.
Also with said new AD, he needs to demolish the...M Go Blue Shops, because we all know the M Den is the true outfitter of Michigan fans.
