WVU won handily, but this is even sweeter:
Heading into his first Michigan-Ohio State game where the Wolverines are expected to extend their dubious record with a ninth loss he tried to deliver a message to fans who have lost touch.
“It’s amazing some of the things that people would say (on a message board) or yell at you of a personal nature,” Rodriguez said Monday. “You almost want to tell them, ‘Get a life.’
“There’s a whole lot bigger problems. Look at the economy.”
College football’s winningest team has tumbled like the stock market, losing a school-record eight games and getting beat a Michigan Stadium-record five times at home.
For the first time since 1974, the Wolverines will be relegated to watching bowl games.
The 10th-ranked Buckeyes are favored to beat their rivals on Saturday at home by 19 points, matching the largest spread in series history, and win at least a share of the Big Ten title for the fourth year in a row.
And they covered the spread, pulverizing Michigan 42-7. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
