According to ESPN, Rodriguez has offered to pay WVU $1.5 million for breaching a contract that calls for $4 million in liquidated damages. I think I’m a high enough ranking official within WVU’s Athletic Department to say, “HAHAHAHA How ’bout you just pay $4 million bitch.”
OK, so let’s say you’re a hypothetical college football coach at a very high-profile, prestigious program. You were lured away from your alma mater just last year, paying millions of dollars in buyout money. On your way out, you complained that the alma mater and its fans — people that attended games and donated in record numbers, mind you — didn’t show you the type of love that you felt you deserved. Then, at your new school, you possess an abysmal 2-8 record in your opening campaign. Not only are fans angry at you, but boosters have become incresingly critical of your stubborn and unrelenting demeanor.
OK, so let’s just say you’re this hypothetical coach. As said coach, do you say the following in your weekly press conference:
“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.’

ANN ARBOR — In a historic move for a country with a once-checkered racial past, Illinois Senator Barack Obama, an African-American, was last night elected President of the United States. Today, in that same vein, the University of Michigan has made a similar bold move: making Rich Rodriguez the first Hispanic ex-coach in Wolverine history.
Bill Martin, Michigan’s athletic director, felt his school was ready for such a move. ”If the election of Barack Obama has taught us anything, it’s that this great country is becoming a much more progressive place,” Martin said. “The University of Michigan is no different. We felt comfortable taking a leap of faith in making Rich Rodriguez the first Hispanic former coach in UM history. It’s a proud day.”
As we all probably know by now, Lou Holtz — the Patrick Henry of gameday shows — referenced Adolf Hitler when talking about Rich Rodriguez’s leadership skills. I wish I could tell you more than that, but unfortunately, the comment made absolutely no sense in context. Even so, we at WBGV believe that Holtz was on to something — he just needed us to take it a step further. So we are. Right…..now.
Damn bro, that was quick.
With the ink on Tommy Bowden’s dismissal not even dry, “The Product’s” agent (Mike Brown, seen here) has contacted Clemson to show interest in the job. I knew Fraud would look to move on to greener pastures but this was so fast and slutty even a sorority girl would be proud.
Lying awake last night I thought about my girlfriend in a sexually explicit way. After thirty seconds of ecstasy, I started to think about our football team. With thoughts of the team running through my head my mood turned from satisfaction, to utter disappointment.
Then I began hearing voices. Don’t worry, it is not out of the ordinary for me to hear voices. Luckily for us all, they did not order me to go on a ten day meth and sex bender again. It was only HCBS and his Fiesta Bowl pre-game speech.
The long West Virginia nightmare is over! Finally, Fraud has realized that he has absolutely no shot of winning the case and will pay WVU the $4 million he owes. Take the day off work, have a beer with your friends, and enjoy your final opportunity to complain about He Who Shall Not Be Named (Rich Rodriguez).
While I am happy this whole damn thing is over I won’t be totally content until I see the final terms. I’m worried that Fraud won’t pay any interest or attorney’s fees, which combined, will be just under a $1 million. Stay tuned
Mike Brown is officially the worst person alive. (It’s amazing how I was originally embarrassed for Joe Manchin’s stupidity when he blamed Rich Rod’s agent for everything, but now I somewhat agree. Although, obviously, the ultimate blame rests with the man who hired him and made the final decision.)
Chuck Finder isn’t too far behind.
Seriously, the guy gets an early copy of Mike Garrison’s deposition (gee, I wonder how) and then his only reactionary source is Dusty Freaking Rutledge, who says that Rich Rodriguez wouldn’t dare use profanity or disparage W.V. Denying that Rich Rod wouldn’t curse is like denying that Dusty Rutledge wouldn’t eat the last slice box of pizza.
MORGANTOWN – Mon County Judge Robert Stone heard pretrial motions in the Rich Rodriguez case today. He granted WVU’s request for all documents related to RR’s hiring and negotiations with Michigan, and RR’s motion to produce evidence that he was fraudulently induced into signing his contract with WVU.
The motion by both parties to expedite the trial before summer’s end was denied.
We hear Bill Stewart is a player’s coach. We hear he is too close to his players, too ready to be liked to truly have control over this program. Yet, in the month and a half since he took the reigns, Stewart has dismissed as many players — three — as his predecessor might in ten times the time.
Is this because Stewart has fostered a culture of unruliness in just 47 days? Likely not. Has he inherited exactly that? A lot of signs point to yes.
Ok, so maybe this isn’t news to anyone reading this blog but to all those who still stick up for Fraud you may now eat crow. For almost a month Fraud has been trotting out the fact that his children and family have been facing threats and various other forms of ill words coming from WVU fans. WV Metronews now has a story that after an investigation the Monongalia Sheriffs Department have found ZILCH, NADA, NO proof of actual threats to Fraud, his wife or his children.
There is finally proof that he is a lying sack of excrement and will use anyone and everyone including his own children to get ahead. This is a sad, sad state of affairs and I hope those that still support Fraud will reconsider. Not much more to add but I’m glad that Fraud’s true colors are starting to shine through.
