Michigan started the week with a huge distraction when a handful of players tattled on Rich Rod for making them work too hard. When your own players turn you in that says something, and it isn’t something good. I’ll never understand why Rodriguez left West Virginia and right about now he’s probably wishing he had stayed. At the end of the day he’s just too much of a cultural shift for Michigan. When you come in and change everything at a proud program you are telling them that they have been doing it wrong for the last 100+ years. People take stuff like that personally. In many ways Rodriguez at Michigan reminds me a lot of Callahan at Nebraska. The way things are going it will likely end the same way too. To put icing on it he did shed some tears about the whole deal on TV the next day. He then followed that up by getting sued for $3.9 million over a failed condo project in Blacksburg Virginia of all places. Dude had a rough week. With those minor distractions Michigan might be primed for an upset on Saturday. That just might finish him off if it happens.
