So in the ever-fluid world of the Rich Rodriguez “Is or isn’t he fired?” saga, reports out of Ann Arbor now suggest that the Michigan football coach has managed to delay a decision on his future.
Multiple media outlets today reported that Rodriguez had been fired. But TheWolverine.com and AnnArbor.com are now reporting that no decision came out of his afternoon meeting with athletic director David Brandon, and The Wolverine is even reporting that the two men will reconvene on Wednesday.
The school put out a statement early this evening from associate athletic director David Ablauf saying "Everything that is being reported is media speculation at this point. The definitive voice on this matter is Dave Brandon and he has not and will not speak publicly until a final decision has been made. I will let you know when Dave is prepared to comment."
But, really, how did Rich Rod avoid what many think is the inevitable for at least another day?
We have a few thoughts on what he might have said and figured we’d have a little fun with the situation.
Emphasis on "this is purely for fun."
