WVA is F'd. Too late in the game to find anyone worth a damn. Oh well...:smile2:
Wow... does anyone have class anymore? Though, I don't really blame him... Will he coach WVU in the Fiesta Bowl?
No he will not. Scum bag.
Reports are no on that one. All the players are saying "No" and "No comment". I'd be severely pissed if I were their players right now.
I'd love to see Michigan renege at the last minute and leave this a-hole out in the cold.
Wow... You see part of recruiting, in my opinion, is finding a coach you can trust and care for and buy into what he has to say. In my opinion, if I was being recruited by Rodriguez or Petrino, I wouldn't believe one word out of their mouths. And bottom line, There is no way I would go there...
Maybe we can pursue a couple of WVU recruits that might be wavering
I would think you could even pull some of their players at this point in time.
It all depends on which side of the deal you are on - Hawkins left BSU about this time of year for Colorado - good for Buffs but tough time (for awhile for the Broncos)
Yeah, I'm not seeing what makes RR any more of a scumbag than any other college coach who leaves a smaller program for a bigger one. It sucks, but the break between the end of the regular season and the bowl games is also prime time for schools looking to fill coaching vacancies.
Compared to the way Petrino handled his move Arky, RR comes off looking fairly good by comparison... :huh:
It's a business. He didn't do anything wrong. Big deal.
Or, how 'bout this one....
discuss what you meant when you chose to include the word, "even."
a pedantic reversion to fusker arrogance? or a wretched sense of sentence structure?
if it is the former, might i remind you that a number of stars have been jumping off the ss little red. conversely, the buffs have started to reel in the stars we think will make a difference.
if it is the latter, how on earth were you certified to teach in the state of colorado?
It is a business, but when these coaches recruit they largely sell themselves and their staff to the kids; the school is often secondary; they look the boys in the eye and tell them they want to make them into college players and they get the kids to believe in them and their program. When they leave that breaks the trust. It is a business for the coaches (most of them) even though they try to make it more of a bonding - mentoring thing. It's not a business for the players and recruits - I think that is the rub.
Yeah speed that kills! :thumbsup:
I guess Michigan must have been impressed by that performance WVU put up against Pitt in the last game of the year.. :lol:
I think its a bad hire by Michigan..
agreed with all your points, but these coaches have to manage their career as well... maybe they have a desire to coach at ND, Michigan or the pros.
Do they have to tell each recruit their personal goals?
I don't think so, and I don't think this was significantly worse than other departures...
I agree, and the maize and blue are second on my rooting food chain. What I'm wondering is how well Rodriguez's teams have performed against ground-based vanilla offenses in the past. The spread offense stuff might help them against Oregon and (oy) Appy State, but if they can't stop a meat and potatoes style offense they're gonna get absolutely massacred in the Big 10.
I agree. Michigan was a traditionalist Offense. If you can recruit the horses, there is nothing like a ground pounding attack. I wonder how RR will manage tOSU linig up and running right at his D?
I suspect Ryan Mallett will hand in his transfer request any day now.
I saw a quote from his father today saying he's sticking to the commitment - for now. Meaning I think he wants to see what Rodriguez has in mind for him before he makes his decision again.
Shaun King played in a RR offense and he couldn't run any better than Mallett. He threw the ball like 30-35 times per game, averaged over 300 yards per game and had 36 passing touchdowns.
RR is a smart coach, it isn't a major adjustment to his offense to include more throwing and less running from the QB.
WVU fan is not taking this one real well. I can't really blame them, they were rolling and were likely to get quite a bit better over the next few years with RR at the helm. They were in the mix for the MNC until Wanny, his porn star mustache and the Panthers came along.
I think it's a good hire considering the Big 11 has proven to have trouble with the Spread offense--qb option run offense-- (I'm talking to you Ohio State; example>Illinois) the only question is to whether they currently have the players there to run it. My guess would be no, so they will have to give him at least 3-4-5 years to install his own players. What do you all think? Can Mallett run the WVU offense?
RR flirted with Bama 12 months ago also.
Yeah, I'd say WVU fan is getting bitter.
thats some funny ****
They're the biggest bunch of idiots. RR's whorish wife used to have special security at home games because if they game wasn't going well she feared for her safety.
Us Marshall fans have been saying this sh!t about RR for years and WVU fans talked about how loyal he was, how he loved WVU and would never leave, how he'd win them a national title, etc. Now they're saying the same crap we've said for years.
So, how are we liking our chances against WVU next year now?
