And Michigan ends the year 3-9.

On the one hand, I’m incredibly amused by Michigan’s misfortune, but on the other hand it’s much more fun to blow out a good Michigan team. And while I think Rick Rodriguez will ultimately be ok, I’m not sold on the idea that it’s a good idea to bring “outsiders” into programs so steeped in tradition. Ohio State went that route with John Cooper, and while we had some success, we got rolled by Michigan. And for all Jim Tressel’s flaws, he’s an Ohio State guy intimately familiar with tradition, and whatever problems I may have with him, he beats Michigan. So at the end of the day I’m happy.
