Several things point to me that a deal is likely to be closed on Rich Rodriguez:
1. Given they lost on Miles and Schiano, Martin and Coleman went to Toledo to close the deal, whatever it took.
2. The fact that Rodriguez took the flight to Toledo to meet already tells me he’s definitely willing to leave under the right circumstances.
3. His wife took the trip to Toledo, if I properly matched the coachrod.com photo with the plane footage.
4. Players are reporting they heard nothing on this from the coach at today’s practice:

“Beat Oklahoma, that’s it,” linebacker Bobby Hathaway said of Rodriguez’s rumored interest in the head coaching job at Michigan. “There’s nothing else to hear.”

“Nah, nothing,” said wideout Darius Reynuad. Added assistant Rod Smith: “About what?”

  1. WVU ALUM., FAN, …COACH ROD HAS BEEN GREAT FOR WVU..WILL BE A BUST AT MICHIGAN. CAN’T KEEP TEAM UP FOR OVER THREE WEEKS..ASSISTANTS NOT LOYAL…HE MAY BE ABLE TO DEFEAT OSU ON MAYBE TWO OF FIVE ATTEMTS..BUT..IN THOSE YEARS HIS TEAM MAY LOSE TO NORTHWESTERN AND NOTRE DAME.
    IF YOUR LOOKING FOR CONSISTENT 9-2, 8-3..HE IS YOUR MAN. HIS SPREAD HAS BEEN HIS EDGE…BUT AS TEAMS CONTINUE TO ADAPT HIS WORTH DECREASES. WIN OR LOSE, LIKE MICHIGAN, WVU LIVES FOR LOYALTY…SOME LOGICAL WVU ALUMS THINK IT IS TIME FOR COACH ROD TO GO…EVERY TIME HE LOSES A MUST WIN GAME…HE THREATENS WITH OTHER JOBS. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH…HE IS ALL YOURS.
