West Virginia fans absolutely loved Rodriguez, a former WVU defensive back, when he guided the Mountaineers to 60 victories and two BCS bowl games from 2001 to 2007. But WVU fans literally drove Rodriguez and his family from his native state after he abruptly left the school to become Michigan’s coach in 2008. Wolverines fans don’t like him too much, either, after Rodriguez went 15-22 in three seasons.
I don't like to dwell on the past, but our favorite
ignorant slut ESPN writer, Mark Schlabach, says it pretty well. This is the highest ranking RichRod has seen in anything since December 2007.
