Arene't you glad UM is paying all the big money for a coach who is not getting the job done. I work at UM and if I did my job like this, I would get fired. He is obviously in over his head. The manly, mature thing to do would be to admit he is not able to coach on this level and let them find someone who can. It used to be UM was a power to be reckoned with, this is not the case anymore-they are a "tune-up" team. Rodriguez needs to go back and hone his skills before he tries to play with the big boys. He is out of his league and they should have spent more time looking for a coach who was able to produce. Live and learn but at whose expense. The big house will turn into a ghost house. Who wants to come every week and be humiliated? Kids used to come to UM because the promise of a bowl game, soon they will not have the pick of the litter when it comes to signing up new players. Who wants to play for a loser?

Ok, I lied. I am back. The team is as good as the coach/boss. When the boss is ineffective than the team will not function correctly. The players may have a better idea, but the coach is not listening. So the coach must go. Not the players, they are worthy of saving, given another chance at least. But the boss ultimately the problem. So for the team to effective as stated before the boss "is the real problem". Why should RR be here next year and the players move on? Should they be sacrificed because of the coach/boss? Ok, I have given my sob sotry and final support of the team. See ya

We are two lucky plays away from being 3-7 right now. Take away the KO return TD against ND and the hail mary bomb on a bum shoulder against IU and we're looking at an identical 3-9 record. How on earth can anyone defend this guy????

Did not watch the game and will not watch another until the joke of the big ten is fired. RR is going to be 8-16 in two years of unwatchable football. Which team is the worst team in Michigan history, RR year 1 or year 2? Predictions: WIsconsin 52 Michigan 17 Ohio State 38 Michigan 10. RR in year 3 is going 4-8. I am hoping to start watching again in 2012 when they get a new coach. The spring bowl should be exciting next year. 3-11 in the Big Ten WOW!!!!!

RR should be fired. A. Kick a field goal on 4th and 10 B. Find a defensive coordinator It was embarressing watching the U of M running around the field at the end of the game trying to lateral the ball like some sand lot team. I went to the Illinois game last week. Illinois beat both my alma maters this year, Illinois State and Michigan. At least ISU played hard till the end of the game My money stays in my pocket while this moron is coaching Michigan

The idiot is the head coach, he doesn't get a pass for the defense being bad. I hope all you koolaid drinkers come to your senses. This has to stop now! The idiot has single handledly destroyed a century of tradition. Its hard to believe my alma mater has fallen so low. Shameful.


Sat, Nov 7, 2009 : 3:47 p.m.

Dude you are so right!. The most losses ever in Michigan since big RR. Anybody for the RR? He still is not taking responsibility? Blamed the team. Yes they are problem but he is the COACH!FIRE THE COACH. The team is only as good as the boss. When the boss sucks the team sucks. HELLO. Tate is in over is head. RR sucks

Are D is the worst crap ive ever seen. Cant say nothing about the offense they score 36 points, are D is the reason we sux so bad the D gives us no chance to win and every chance to lose! Thank you D for bein worse then pee wee football.

I have said it many times since last weeks joke against ill. get rid of this joke and bring in Brian Kelly this team is a joke they cant play the defense blows the offense with several opportunities is inept im sick of this they have become the biggest joke in all of college football they should be ashamed of them selves and embarrassed for what they have put out there on the field
