* New Michigan coach Rich Rodriquez is apparently showing what some would call a lack of class or worse. He is being sued for $4 million by WVA due to a buyout clause that was in his contract. Seems that Rich doesn't want to pay it and just doesn't understand why "mean" old WVa would want to honor the contract. Now apparently there are player files and documents that are missing at WVa. Rodriquez who claimed that he loved WVa is now calling the administration liars. He also has been insensitive to Michigan players and has said basically if they don't like the new offense he is going to install, too bad. They can take a hike. Wonder how long Michigan alumni will put up with this guy? Lloyd Carr he is not.
* The NCAA has voted to keep its ban on texting recruits in place. An override vote, originally spearheaded by the American Football Coaches Association, barely made it to the floor at the NCAA Convention in Nashville, Tenn.
When the issue finally came up for a vote, only 21.3 percent of Division I members supported the override.
