    Adios Rich Rodriguez

    In what has become more of a formality in recent days, the University of Michigan has fired head football coach Rich Rodriguez.

    Reports are that Jim Harbaugh and Brady Hoke are being mentioned as possible replacements, although, in the case of Harbaugh, he is thought to be more interested in heading to the NFL.

    IMO its two candidates, Jim Harbaugh or Les Miles. Anybody else and they might as well have just kept Rodriguez for another season.

    Let the Rich Rod to Pitt/UConn rumors commence.

    IMO, it's one candidate. Harbaugh. They're putting their chips all in again for one candidate, just like they did for Miles the last time. I hope the results don't end up being the same. There are already floods of tweets going around about player transfers. Most of which are likely bunk since a new coach hasn't even been announced yet.

    Screw Rich Rod, what kind of clown fields a defense like that or can't even manage to recruit a decent kicker to Michigan?

    Harbaugh isn't leaving Stanford for Michigan IMO.

    As much fun as it has been beating up on Michigan the last few years, for the Big10s sake, they need a competent Michigan football program.

    LSU is expected to be a top three team next year. They have tons of talent back. I doubt they hire Miles.

    Marvin Lewis to Michigan?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I don't think he will either. He'll go the NFL if he leaves Stanford IMO.

    There's a round peg / square hole problem with Michigan and Jim Harbaugh. Their roster is awful and they really don't have the right kids to run the system that I imagine Harbaugh will want to run.

    There's a lengthy rebuild ahead of the next UM coach -- and if I were Harbaugh, I don't know that I'd trust the AD / Boosters to give me enough time to accomplish it.

    But, then again, all the open / soon-to-be-open NFL gigs are kinda crap right now too.

    It's about time. The man was in over his head.

    Last coaching time change around, I thought I heard there was bad blood between Harbaugh and UM. They'd be wise to hire him though.

    Like gonelong said, I love beating up on UM every year but it really does need to be competitive and mean something.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    This.

    I know many a UM fan that was hoping he'd tank, he's not a UM caliber guy, never was and never will be evidently.

    Thank god.

    Palo Alto is damn nice too. No offense but I'd much rather live there than Ann Arbor, or anywhere in the midwest for that matter.
