I have always been critical of Rich Rodriguez's seemingly inability to accept criticism. In his mind, he is above any negative statement from the fanbase or media. This cements that:
Meanwhile, a longtime friend of Rodriguez, who spoke confidently, said he could understand if the coach were interested in the Michigan job. The friend complained how some Mountaineer fans reacted after WVU lost the Pitt game, ending chances for a national championship.
Some fans booed and criticized Rodriguez, while kicker Pat McAfee, who missed two field goals in the game, reportedly received death threats.
Oh my god, they booed? You mean we complained after losing as a 28 point favorite, at home, to our biggest rival, in a game we had to win to go to the National Championship? You gotta be shittin' me. I figured we'd give him a big pat on the back. Good job Rich. Good job.
Take your ball and go
home to Michigan.
