Rich Rod: Old Wolverine Probie


Funny thing this here is. When Bill Martin hired Rich Rodriguez from West Virginia he abandoned Michigan and Big Ten football lore by exchanging Chocolate for Carob. Martin retired this year and Michigan hired David Brandon to serve as Athletic Director, the Michigan alum who was the CEO of Ann Arbor based Domino's Pizza and had played football under Bo Schembechler in the Seventies was indeed a true blue Chocolate deep-dish Wolverine. When Carr retired and Rodriguez was hired he found himself with melted Chocolate recruits who could not properly transform into the new Carob fold, and Rodriguez knew that it would take time and although Martin pretty much guaranteed that time, his retirement turned Rodriguez into a veggie pizza without the guarantee of the preferred oven baking time. Michigan football is driven by their fan base and Rodriguez is now faced with unhappy fans who let the world know their true feelings by booing Rich Rod and his Carob elites loudly at the end of the second quarter in Iowa's 38-28 win over the Wolverines in Ann Arbor last Saturday.

The Michigan fans had watched their first five game phenomena turn belly-up after their loss at home to Michigan State a week earlier, and losing back to back home games in the Big Ten sits as well with the fan base as a pizza with watery tomatoes does to a thin crust pizza... and they're spitting it out by the chunks. David Brandon knows the situation at Michigan better than Martin ever did... he knows that the only solution is to let Rich Rodriguez go, try to bring Jim Harbaugh in from Stanford and Bob Bowlsby, or Les Miles from LSU and return the Wolverines to their beloved Chocolate lore.

Slice it anyway you like, but the bottom line is football at Michigan and the grandeur of anything other than true blue Michigan football will never be acceptable.

You heard it here first.
