Thanks for the memories, Rich Rodriguez.

As a Penn State fan, I'm crying a little inside after reading reports that my favorite coach is leaving the University of Michigan to go to [er, who else will take him? Probably Pitt] after being fired by the boys in Ann Arbor.

His 15-22 record obviously upset some people. If you're a Michigan fan, it must have been frustrating. Last season they got to believe a little with Denard Robinson. They got to forget a lot with namesake Greg Robinson, who ran the world's worst defense.

But if you're Jim Tressel or Joe Paterno or a Michigan State fan, you're weeping a little to see RichRod go. After all, they were 9-0 against the Wolverines with Rodriguez in charge.

According to Twitter rumors, Les Miles is being talked about as a possibility.

If you remember his press conference the last time the Michigan job was talked about, Les Miles threw his toys out of the pram at a SEC Championship game press conference.

We can only wonder if he'll do it again on January 7, soaked in Gatorade after his team crushes Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl.

But Rich, it's been an adventure.
