MICHIGAN GETS THEIR COACH.

West Virginia Unversity's Rich Rodriguez is the new football coach at the University of Michigan.

 

UM Athletic Director Bill Martin made the announcement Sunday, saying Rodriguez, 44, will be introduced at a news conference Monday morning.

 

The Sunday Gazette-Mail in Charleston, W.Va., reported Rodriguez informed his players at West Virginia in a meeting Sunday afternoon, and the players filed out of the meeting room, somber-faced with little comment.

 

Rodriguez constructed a 60-26 record at Morgantown, including three straight 10-win seasons and two BCS bowl trips.

 

A report by the Detroit Free Press Friday said Rodriguez was in Toledo, Ohio, meeting with Martin and Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman to discuss the Wolverines' vacancy.

 

Rodriguez succeeds Lloyd Carr, who retired Nov. 19 in the wake of criticism following a fourth straight loss to arch rival Ohio State.

 

LOOKS LIKE HE WILL SUCEED WHERE CARR FAILED , WE HAD BETTER BE READY FOR THEM .

F*#@K !!

 

i don't post much, but this is a terrible terrible piece of news for ND.

 

as i'm sure you guys have read, terrelle pryor is now extremely interested in going to michigan. that kid is sick, possibly better than pat white out of h.s. it's going to be tough going up against a coach rod team, especially in a couple of years.

 

good thing we have them on our schedule until the year 3011.

 

to me, coach rodriguez is a much much more dangerous coach than les miles. miles has premier atheletes at literally every position. he's really just a meat-head who coaches decent football.

It sounds like Michigan did an excellent job selecting a very qualified Coach and then getting him to say "yes." If I were a Michigan fan, which I most certainly am not, I would be very happy that they are bringing in a guy who is already proven as a successful head coach at the college level. No sweat though: after all, you have to beat the best to be the best.

Pryor (IF IF IF he goes to Mich) might be all he is cracked up to be, but with the athletes we have coming in on D these days, I'm much less concered about mobile QBs than in previous years. Pryor won't be able to do much with Omar Hunter spending half the game in his backfield.

 

There is speculation Mallett may transfer. I cannot evaluate the truthfullness of any of it, but I think it would be a shame to rob college football of the high comedy of Twinkle-Toes Mallett running the spread.

Is this your opinion or just speculation? I think given what RR does, and does well, there might be some legs to this. If he transfers, I would assume that would help our chances, but then again I'm assuming. Who really knows?? :?:

 

Im just speculating, its not out of the question, but I dont see it happening.

Mallett wont transfer.

 

I'm trying to think of one reason he would stay, and I can't. RR said already that he is going to keep his offense, have you seen Mallet move ? There is no way Mallet can run a vear-option based off like RR runs, he would look like Powlus running the option. :roll:

well, from what i read, rodriguez called terrell pryor BEFORE he even talked to "his" own WV team. shows you how badly he wants him. and reading pryor's comments, it seems like michigan jumped to the top of his list.

 

i don't think that fact bodes well for mallett, if pryor goes.

 

a good friend of mine (went to grad school together, sorry) is a michigan grad and he told me that mallett's dad is quoted as saying they'd really like to sit down with rodriguez as soon as possible (probably to help decide what theyre going to do)

RR doesnt scare me that much, if he was as good as some of the media is saying there is no way WVU would have got beat by a average Pitt team with a chance at the NC on the line.

 

Now if they get Pryor it could be very scary, but going into next year with Mallet as their QB and no stud RB they dont scare me that much. . . .

So by that logic Lou Holtz wasn't very good either then right?

 

 

Im not saying he is a bad coach but there is no way that Pitt should have beat them, Pat White hurt or not.

 

And lets not forget that USF has found a forumla that completely owns their offence, and their defence is full of 3 star kids.

 

Its one thing to be an up and comer at a decent school, its a whole new ballgame when your at a program that wants to win a NC every single year.

 

And unless he gets Pryor, good luck running his system.

He can modify the system with a passer like Mallet to be more pass oriented than run. I think with the talent Michigan has, they can spread teams out and force them to match up in addition with having a big ass line and sweet RBs. THey are going to be tough. Right now, it seems WVU does things the opposite way. They rely on the run to open the pass. UM is going to be scary.

RR is a very good coach by all means and he will turn Michigan into a very good team just like he did at wva, the reason he lost to Pitt was that i think he was looking ahead to the NC game along with the players. he just didn't get the job don . But he will be a thorn in our side for years to come , seems charlie even talked to him last year. i suggest that we don't jump on the bandwagon just yet , RR will get quality players at ann arbor. , he will be late this year in recruting but he will get a few. :)

well, it could be argued to death, but to me, historically there have been great teams who would've been sh*t without their 1 or 2 dominant skill position players. the list is huge, too many to mention.

 

RR's problem is that he's had no defense to protect leads. when they won they usually had to win shootouts 48-44 and whatnot.

 

hell, i could turn it around and say what's so great about les miles he has defensive tackles that run 4.3 40''s lol. to me, if rodriguez was running LSU, with their athletes (ryan perrilloux would fit into RR's system i think) - they wouldn't be going to triple OT with every other SEC opponent.
