Michigan RB Coach Wants MSU, OSU

14 Mar

Michigan football over the past few years hasn’t lived up to its storied history as a football powerhouse. Their down fall started under the direction of Lloyd Carr and continued under Rich Rodriguez. This season they are hoping to begin their turn around under new head coach Brady Hoke.

When Hoke was hired, he spoke about bring the tradition back to Michigan Football. Part of that tradition is winning and beating their hated rivals. However, recently many football rivalries were dwindled because of the lack of production of the wolverines. This doesn’t sit well with the new coaching staff. New running backs coach Fred Jackson reflected on losing three games to Michigan State and Ohio State over the last three years.

He said “We’ve got to get back at them.” Though he realizes the past is hard to stomach, he also knows it’s important for future success. Jackson said, “People think we’re knocked down. I’m excited about the attitude and the approach to it. If you walk every day of your life and take certain stuff, you’ve got to get back.”

Rodriquez has his guy [Pat White 2.0]

5 Sep

After a whole offseason the Michigan Wolverines quarterbacks didn’t know who would be taking snaps under center, well in their case behind center in shotgun. With just 24 hours till kickoff, Michigan Head Coach Rich Rodriquez notified Denard Robinson that he will be the guy. The sophomore QB was thrill to hear he was the starting QB.

He didn’t disappoint either. In Saturday’s game against UCONN, Robinson ran for 197 yards, setting a school record for a QB, and a TD. And he threw 22 passes with 19 completions for 186 yards and a TD.

Known as the creator of the spread option Rich Rodriquez knows the qualities of a spread QB. At West Virginia University Rodriquez was the coach of Pat White, the NCAA all time leading rusher among QB’s. And he might have found his Pat White 2.0 in Denard Robinson.

After the game both head coach and player sported huge smiles in the post game interview on ABC.
