sorry there saline. looks as if YOU don't get your wish. DB said that this in no way effects RR job as coach. he even went as far to say that RR will be the coach NEXT year. you and your buddies should find other hobbies cause it looks as if RR will be the coach for 2 more. i am starting to like this new AD more and more. well, when the final say so is said in august, it will finally put this to rest. nothing more than a slap on the wrist, if that. word of warning to mr. birkett: you had better tread lightly w/ the new AD around. you make him angry w/ your line of questioning and you press pass will removed for good. today you already have 1 foot out the door.

First time in the history of the University of Michigan Football Program we have been found guilty of violating NCAA rules and regulations. The bad thing is look at our record!!!! Fire RR now and let's avoid further embarassment.

Question! Question! Will Dave Birkett be fired before tomorrow?

I hope Dave Birkett has been properly briefed about press conference etiquette. His credentials will be revoked if he attempts another hijacking.

wersch213, this will probably be the end of it to everyone but the Freep. You know they aren't going to drop anything, and I wouldn't be shocked if they were already "cooking up" more "bombshell allegations" to drop before opening kick off this fall. Because, you know, they have to keep making themselves the story!

All I know is that Rich Rodriguez, his wife, and David Brandon all sat together during most of the Michigan v. Penn State game on Saturday. They seemed very relaxed, and were in the presence of 40 or so potential recruits for the 2011 season. I like the early indicators of unity...hopefully this is the end of it for good

So is this it?? Is this going to be the final word and judgement?
