Milan Puskar hit the nail on the head when he stated that any school that lets the boosters effectively run its athletic program is destined to fall apart. I've unfortunately watch my favorite college football team go from a two-decade-long nantional dominance to a conference laughing stock because of this issue.

Personally, I don't see the defection of DickRod to be all that bad, necessarily. WVU has had success before him, and they will have success after him. In fact, Don Nehlen did something that Rodriguez never did - play for a national title.

Rich Rodriguez is way too convervative of a coach. If he thinks Michigan is the answer to his national title hopes, he better think again. Lloyd Carr left some big shoes to fill. He won a national title. He dominated tOSU, until Tressel came along. I really don't foresee Rodriguez having the same success at Michigan that Carr has enjoyed, nor the same success that he, himself has enjoyed at WVU.

Three years and he's out. Four, tops.
