Say, Coach Rodriguez, how were you able to win eight games in your first season at Arizona whereas your first Michigan team only managed three wins?
“We got total buy-in from the get-go here,” Rodriguez said. “From the players to the support staff to everybody that was touching the program. We had some guys committed at Michigan, but we had others that weren’t. Some guys felt a sense of entitlement. The name on the chest, and 'I’ve already arrived.'
“The Chad Hennes and the Jake Longs put the work in and succeeded before us, and guys behind them thought they were entitled to the same status but hadn’t proved anything.”
I don't know how they felt entitled after being owned by us for that long..

Too logical, too obvious, too simple, therefore unacceptable to this board...
It's funny I used to hate this man for so many reasons (during his tenure at WVU and then UM). But somehow I like him now. When he went on TV and does interviews with Bill King. I really respected his side. Now he is at UofA, and I live in PHX, so I get to hear more about him. I kind of like RR right now.
I guess it's true when they say you don't like successful people. It's the same in sports. Look at the Yankees, UK, Patriots, SeCk, Anyone involved with the SeCk, and USC. I can't stand all of these. But what do they have in common - they are all winners.
Maybe this is the reason soooooo many fans out there hate the Buckeyes. This could be a good thing.
it's a lot easier to like a guy when he's not coaching your arch rival
I loved Rich Rod @ West Virginia for his high powered offense & loved him @ scUM for making them suck so wonderfully. Actually had tears when they gave him the boot. Hope only the best for him @ Arizona.
Those Who Stay Will Be Championshipless
I'm not sure the source but I remember hearing that RR would like a game against TTUN. That might be fun to watch
I would like to see that match up! Hopefully he will make scUM suck wonderfully again!
OSU should offer to host it as a neutral site game. That's the only way RichRod and Michigan could win a game in the Shoe.

Not really sure what to think, or more importantly why I would care.
RR and UM both got what they deserved in the end.
They were both arrogant enough and ignorant enough to think they would make a match made in Heaven.
While I do believe people deserve a second chance, in the end, I just don't care in this instance.
Yeah, I don't think it was just his players who came to Michigan thinking they were entitled.
Lol, me too. I dont mind RR after two years of watching Hoax
that just goes to show how much of a difference there is between the big least & the B1G - WVU & RR owned the big east but we all know what happened at scUM...they put up a lot of points against the weaker B1G programs for the most part but failed miserably against the upper echelon - the big least is just a step above the MAC...they basically recruit the same kids - where RR & now Charlie Strong were getting S. Florida kids - so my point is i cringe when people say things like "wvu's high powered offense" because the reality is they were just in a super weak conference...if you bring up wvu's bcs game against UGa then i would like to point out that (i dont remember the exact score) but it was like 49 - 0 at half time & the 2nd half UGa played their 2nd & 3rd string guys to get them the experience & to also save their future NFL prospects from injury so wvu was able to come back. And to further prove this point...look at what happened to wvu this past year in the B12...its a different ending when they have to play better talent every week
