If RR leaves, what happens to this blog?

Submitted by Wendyk5 on December 3rd, 2010 at 7:17 PM
It occurred to me today that Mgoblog will be a different place if RR is replaced. For as long as I've been on it (2 years), there has been a general pro-RR sentiment. I attribute that to general level-headedness. Let's let the coach have some time to do his job before we make a judgment. Let's support him until, and if, there's a reason not to. Many have become staunch supporters in the process. In the past week or so, I've noticed more sniping at each other than usual. So I wonder what happens in the event of a coaching change. What will the overall tone be? Will people who were previously RR supporters become pro-Whoever in the best interest of The Program? Maybe this is too soon to post. But with all the coaching change talk, does a change in Mgoblog necessarily follow?

I wouldn't say sinking, more like we took on water but its being pumped out pretty quickly.  Hopefully the same happens to you guys, or its quick and relatively painless

I would say that is won't be quick and it will be painful.  Too much emotional energy already invested in the process regardless of the outcome. It seems like the OSU game was a long time ago and its only been a week. Still trying to get that dagger out of my heart. 

Ah, the lot of the fan.

Irish, where you have been all season?

I wouldn't say that beating a vastly overrated Utah, not going 0-2 against the service academies, and needing Ronald Johnson to drop a pass right in the numbers to beat USC's worst team in 9 years puts Notre Dame in any tier above where Michigan is at.......

I can think of worse way to finish a season than to win on the road against your biggest rival, especially when ND's QB scored all of ND's and USC's points in the game.   First year head coach improves over ND's record from last year with a tougher schedule and 2 first year starters at QB, one of which is a true freshman.  Not to mention doing it while missing #1 RB, #1 QB  #2 WR, #3 WR, #1 DT and #1 ILB.  I mean ND could of lost on the road against its biggest rival.  

ND's playing its best football at the end of the year, its been at least 8 years since I could say that.  Kelly's changes are showing some promise

As for what tier ND is on, sagarin puts ND at 29th in the country, UM comes in at 46th

I won't lie. I really like having Coach Rodriguez around, and will have a difficult time adjusting to having a new coach (particularly Coach Harbaugh) if this happens.

I guess Brian will have to change the blog's name to... mgoblog.

And the format will have to change.  I suspect that in the new format, the blog will largely cover... University of Michigan athletics, with a particular focus on football, basketball, and hockey.
