Rich Rodriguez wants Michigan to continue staying in hotels the night before home games
The Pacific 10 conference is proposing that, as a way to cut costs to athletic budgets, football teams no longer can stay in hotels the night before home games.
Rich Rodriguez, like other coaches asked about the issue, doesn't seem too pleased by it.
"For us in particular, we have so many guys that live off campus in different parts of town that we need to get them together on a Friday night," Rodriguez said.
He went on to say that his team is trying to cut budget elsewhere, including taking campus buses to home games instead of charter buses and breaking camp today instead of Saturday.
Hotels for coaches, players and other assorted staff cost thousands of dollars, even for a single night. And it's a practice that CBS Sports columnist Gregg Doyel finds insulting.
As for the issue itself, it'll be voted on in January at the NCAA Convention.
