Rich Rodriguez: Career at Michigan Depends on Winning Now
RichRod Must Finish Strong This Year

To say Rich Rodriguez has tested the patience of the University of Michigan would be like saying the World War II was a bit of a tiff:  huge understatement.  From the extremely ugly split with his Alma Mater to a housing investment scandal… from large numbers of quality players leaving the program to the first major NCAA violations in the storied program’s proud history… from a sector of Michigan fans never wanting Rodriguez to be hired (because he didn’t come directly from the Bo Schembechler coaching tree) to a terrible Big Ten record, few coaches anywhere have ever faced such a litany of well-documented troubles in their first two years. 

Now, midway through year three, we’ve reached the Rubicon.  We are clearly at the most pivotal juncture of RichRod’s tenuous tenure as head coach of the Michigan Wolverines.  The next three Saturdays will have an enormous impact on whether or not Coach Rod will continue to be at the helm in 2011.  It is really very simple:  WIN NOW.  If not, Athletic Director David Brandon will be doing his best  Donald Trump impression (aka, “You’re Fired”).
