I don't know, I don't think he's a great coach.
yea I"m happy to have him in our division. He worked wonders at michigan... Just ask tini.
he is not going to be fighting the history, lack of michigan man, booster outrage, offense change that he was at Mich. U of A is far more analogous to WVU than it is Mich.
I dunno, when he took over at Michigan, he went from a pro style O to his spread/option system for which he did not have the players. Michigan was not interested in waiting on him to get the system in place. It was a bad fit. He was a stunning success at WVU. Will he be able to get the players at AZ? He is part of the way there since they already have a spread passing attack. If AZ could be patient and give him three years or so to recruit to the system, he could be a problem.
His type of player will go to oregon, not au.
i think this is ok--- he will want to run his style O--- we're pro-set. so, we hopefully won't have too much trouble in terms of recruiting. i hope.
as for beating him, i'll take a well coached prostyle offense with athletes v. a well coached spread offense with athletes every time. yes, there are quite a number of presumptions i am making in the previous sentence. i carry hope around with me.
FakeRichRod may make it onto my timeline after this.
The good thing is that it takes a while to implement his system. Also, he'll be recruiting very different types of players than we will. Under Stoops, we were going to be going after a lot of the same guys.
Excellent hire imo. He will def recruit well
Well scoring is now going to be as easy as taking a **** with laxatives.
Not good for us.
As a Michigan fan (born and raised in Ann Arbor), I think it's a good fit for Rich Rod, and I wish him well. He had an incredible amount of factors working against him at UofM, but none of those will exist in Tucson. That said, he couldn't care less about defense, to the point of not bothering to even make sure he hires a competent coordinator to handle it for him, which will always be a problem. I think the UA-UO games in a couple of years could reach the 100s fairly regularly.
Apparently announced on the U of A twitter, with formal press conference scheduled for tomorrow (per espn).
No. **** RR & **** U of A.
I always suspected BP was a child rapist.
He also didn't say statutory, so he called you ugly. And an animal.
Oh Rita, you need a tanning bed like I need a jelly donut...
Yeah RichRod is a terrible recruiter. All of those RichRod recruits at Michigan are totally sucking it this year, wait they're 9-2? Oh...*dumbasses*
Not good news. Rich Rod may have failed at Michigan, but putting his offense in up there was going to take a lot longer than Wolverine fans wanted to deal with. He had some nasty WVU teams. I think he made a living in Florida when he was at WVU, so hopefully he struggles to recruit the west coast.
Well, along the same lines, it's also the same players that made up the 110th ranked defense last year. I think as far as CU is concerned, it's not that he's a bad recruiter, it's that he's recruiting different players -- we won't need a lot of 5'9 slot receivers for our offense (hopefully).
hes not a bad recruiter... noone ever said he was.... he is a terrible coach... hes the katie hndia of coaching...and we was indeed exposed in michigan
That's the point I was trying to make, although I don't think he's a terrible coach -- he's an awesome offensive coach, but just hasn't put enough emphasis into both 1) finding a good DC; and 2) giving him the control he needs to run an effective defense. Last year he hired a coach (Robinson) that had never run a 3-3-5 and forced him to stick w/ it for the whole year. After writing that, maybe he is terrible if he can't recognize his own limitations in that way, but if he does, I think he can be effective at UA.
