Default Rich Rodriguez was "very distraught" in private meeting the night before he resigned

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University President Mike Garrison said in a deposition that former football coach Rich Rodriguez was "very distraught" in a private meeting the night before he resigned and accepted the top job at Michigan, complaining about harsh public reaction to a lost shot at a national championship.


As part of the $4 million lawsuit the university has filed over a buyout clause in the coach's contract, Garrison testified the two had a tense final meeting Dec. 15 — one in which the president admits he may have raised his voice and one in which Rodriguez allegedly put his head in his hands and complained about how difficult his choice was.


A transcript of Garrison's deposition was released late Monday, along with testimony by chief of staff Craig Walker, assistant athletic director Mike Parsons and two members of the WVU Board of Governors.
Garrison also denied in the June proceeding he had misled Rodriguez into signing the contract that was in effect when he quit, disputing assertions he told the coach he didn't believe in and wouldn't enforce buyouts.

Rich Rod didn't take the PITT game seriously and neither did his kids. His first day at Michigan he didn't indicate that the OSU game was a big deal.

Tressel's first year at OSU he stated clearly his intention to beat Michigan. Rich Rod doesn't take Rivalry games seriously, and that is his major flaw. In college, the Rivalry game is THE game you have to win. Rich doesn't get it at all.

Ding ding ding! I don't care how good your team is, if you don't take the rivalry game seriously you'll lose the game and you will be shown the door. Look at John Cooper: Dude had the best team in the Country at least twice, didn't get his kids up for the Michigan game (Hell, they blew it against MSU one year) and fell flat on his face. In fact, it's surprising he lasted as long as he did in Columbus.

If he doesn't take the Buckeyes game seriously, especially this year, the Buckeyes will beat the piss out of the Wolverines...which won't bother me one bit, of course, but hardly does anything to rekindle the increasingly one-sided affair OSU-Michigan is fast becoming.

As a Wolverines fan, he better take everything seriously. I really think they may lose about 6-7 games this year with the depleted talent. PSU may actually be able to beat them this year.

I just do not like this guy.

By the end of this year.

If Rich does once again not take a rivalry game seriously, I know 2 losses on Michigan's schedule already. (Penn State and Ohio State). Penn State has been very close to beating Michigan in the recent battles Since the 2002 game leading up to the last 2 year break and resumption in 2005 by losing by a combined 17 points. Penn State hasn't had there behinds kicked around truely by Michigan since the 2001 game. Penn State I bet you will be up for this game if they continue to prepare like they have had for Michigan or even better. Sure Penn State has no returning QB, but neither does Michigan. Penn State's big difference is that 18 out of 22 starters from the 2007 season are back this year.

I do expect Michigan to attempt to give PSU a game, but if Rich Rod does not throw everything including the kitchen sink at Penn State, pretty good shot Michigan fans will be reliving 1996 again.
