Rich Rodriguez Hubris Watch


AP college football writer Ralph D. Russo filed a story on the downward spiral of the once-proud Michigan football team. After the loss on Oct. 31 to Illinois, what looked like an rebound for the program after Rich Rodriguez's 3-9 first season has pretty much collapsed. Even with a quarterback Tate Forcier with huge upswing, the Wolverines are struggling at 5-4. With Purdue, Wisconsin and Ohio State on the horizon, things could go sideways very fast. Going 0-3 would mean second season without a bowl appearance. That's not what Michigan wanted when they hired Rodriguez.
A poor record this year probably won't get Rich Rod his walking papers. However, Rodriguez is being investigated by the NCAA for violations involving alledged violations of players being overworked. If the NCAA finds some dirt that sticks, then things could change.
Rodriguez is safe for now, but It's not hard to think the clock may be ticking on him.
