During the final days of RR (actually, pretty much throughout his tenure) there was talk of people not supporting the coach. The local papers were out to get him, the former players were out to get him, shadowy figures within the Athletic Department were out to get him....you get the idea.
My question is......what does it mean to support the coach? More specifically...what was I, as a fan, supposed to do to support RR? I read MGoBlog. I watch every game on TV. I live in NC but traveled to A2 for the UConn game and Jacksonville for the Gator Bowl. Is that enough?
I just remember seeing a ton a talk about people not supporting RR and I never really knew what that meant. Did we need to yell at the TV louder? Buy more t-shirts?
Personally, I think that RR was responsible for his own fate and that was the case throughout his three years at Michigan. He ran the team his way and paid for it in the end. I don't think that any bloggers, newspapers, former players or AD personnel were the cause of his downfall.
As we enter the Brady Hoke phase.....what are the fans supposed to do for him that wasn't done for RR?
