This a two-headed blog dedicated to two idiots. One at the college level, and one at the pro level. We'll start on campus.
Hello, Coach Rodriguez. And welcome to Ann Arbor. Thanks for delivering one of the school's WORST SEASONS EVER. Michigan has NEVER had 8 losses. Now they do. After next week it'll likely be 9. In one season.
9 losses was 4 or 5 seasons worth of mistakes not to long ago.
Now I get it- you're implementing a new offensive system that requires a pretty substantial overhaul. Your personnel don't quite fit. There needs to be time for eveyone to buy in.
But Rich, stop being a dick. YOU LOST. A LOT. Accept it and own up to it like a man. Your fans have every right to complain. You LOST to Utah. You LOST to Purdue. God love you, you LOST to friggin' Toledo!
And yet when fans got vocal, this was your response:
"It's amazing some of the things that people would say [on a message board] or yell at you of a personal nature," Rodriguez said Monday. "You almost want to tell them, 'Get a life.'
"There's a whole lot bigger problems. Look at the economy."
I defended your decision to leave WVU. I defended UM's decision to choose you as the next head coach at the winningest program in college football history. But I can't defend this.
The economy? What the hell does that have to do with your unprecedented failure you smug sonofabitch? What a stupid thing to say. Throwing a red herring out there doesn't absolve you of the hideous season you and your team are foisting on the Michigan fanbase.
Thank god I'm a Buckeye fan, or I'd be sick to my stomach.
You were hired and paid millions to win football games. And while Wolverine fans do need to be a little paitent, YOU need to learn some contrition and humility. If anyone needs to get a life, it's you.
On to the NFL.
Hello Donovan. I'm not here to rant about your QB play. This is a post-game issue.
You recently tied with Cincinnati after a scoreless OT period. It's bad enough that you couldn't manage to muster a win against the Bungles...in fact, you were quite fortunate that Shane Graham missed that kick. But as I said, let's leave game play out of this.
Here was you reaction afterward:
"I've never been a part of a tie. I never even knew that was in the rule book," McNabb said after the game. "It's part of the rules, and we have to go with it. I was looking forward to getting the opportunity to get out there and try to drive to win the game. But unfortunately, with the rules, we settled with a tie."
Are you fking serious?
How can ANYONE reach the NFL- a PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE- and play there for TEN SEASONS without knowing one of the game's most basic rules?
It is beyond the pale that you, as a team leader and veteran player, would be ignorant of how overtime works. This is honestly the dumbest thing that I have heard in a long, long time.
What the hell did you THINK happened if OT ended in a tie? More OT?
You were IN THE FREAKING LEAGUE IN 2002. There was a TIE GAME in 2002. IN PENNSYLVANIA! WHERE YOU PLAY!
If I didn't know better, I would have assumed you were joking. Seriously. I cannot believe this. I knew the rule by the time I was 5 years old. I am literally stunned.
Now in your defense, you weren't alone. Apparently you play with several other halfwits.
"I found out while we were in OT," rookie wideout DeSean Jackson said.
"I thought we kept playing," linebacker Omar Gaither said.
You are all paid vast sums of money to do one thing- play football. And you don't even know one of the basic rules of the game.
I'm tired of typing. I'm going to have Rich Rodriguez call and yell at you for a while.
