Mike Brown doesn't understand the difference?
Let's start with the fact that Coach Rod poisoned the well on his way out of Morgantown. He waited until the start of a new week (Sunday Morning), to contact each and every one of his high school prospects - including the top prospect in the country Terrell Pryor - to inform them that he was going to Michigan and asked them to cross WVU off their list and add Michigan. That was considered a WVU contact as he hadn't resigned yet. THEN, he sent a Graduate Assistant to Ed Pastilong, the AD with his letter of resignation. After that he informed his coaches, and THEN his players - which he had recruited.
Because Rodriguez had contacted the prospects on Sunday morning, WVU wasn't allowed, by NCAA regulation, to contact them again until the following Sunday. However, coach Rod was allowed to call them Tuesday morning as the Head Coach of Michigan.
And coach Rod doesn't understand why WV fans - who believe that a handshake and personal integrity are the most important characteristics of any man, could be angry at the way he left?
We won't even get into the way he talked some of the largest WVU donors into withdrawing their pledges and the turmoil that now pervades the WVU athletic department caused by Rodriguez's underhanded tactics.
Michigan has now taken their third WVU coach in the past 18 months.
I understand that after being embarrassed with the biggest loss in the FBS this year (Well one of the teams was an FBS team anyway), Michigan fans would want to fire Carr and hire the coach of the Mountaineers... but they weren't bright enough to figure out that Rodriguez was the coach of those 'other' Mountaineers.
Good luck to Michigan, i hope Rodriguez has as much success as the last WVU coach who defected to your program -(a/o 12/27/2007 John Beilien is 4-8
