I'm always surprised at how visibly nervous he gets when he's publicly speaking. I kind of like that—I know people view it as a weakness, but it really just endears me more to him because he seems like a genuine human being. He's clearly much more confident in videos where he's simply explaining his football philosophy.

there are some that want to bash the guy for being emotional but I feel as though its a good thing. People lead in different ways. Lloyd was stoic and consistent, Bo was fiery and competitive, and I think RR has shown that he's passionate, hard working, and relentless. I really feel like he posted his stake in the ground and wanted it to be clear he's here for all the right reasons

Don't get me wrong, I love Lloyd, but when he spoke, he kind of gave off the vibe that he was being bothered by holding a press conference. Rodriguez, on the other hand, looks like he wants to harness the passion and loyalty of the fans.

He wants to win and works hard to do so .. and when you have that combo eventually you will be successful

Its not good for me to watch stuff like this .. im about to put on my Wolverine gear and run my head into the wall .. I wish Mike Tyson would KO me and i would wake up right before opening day .. i cant handle the wait

I will be very angry if he isn't back after next year. It's really sad that that is my first thought but if there is enough pressure for Brandon to give him the axe I will be pissed. Rodriguez is a great coach and if someone else is coaching in 2011, they need to give him a ton of credit.

it's that he does what he thinks is right. He's got a Michigan athletic background. He's run a multi-billion dollar enterprise. He's been a Regent. I'm all in with this guy and if he decides we're better off moving on (unlikely I think) then I'm behind him. I feel for certain that Brandon will not bow to pressure and do something he does not feel is right.

like that rich rod he wont forget about all haters and calls himself and deserved a michigan man. And also Brandy showing that he has support in rich rod and the program that is expected in the future.
