Rodriguez added he expected freshman quarterback Ryan Mallett to leave, as well, noting he'd done his best to convince him he could fit in his spread offense.

"I believe he is going to transfer," he said. "He has not told me specifically, but he's told other folks in the program, and I talked to him before the bowl game and I talked to him once after and gave him our spiel. But again, if he chooses to leave, he can make a choice he thinks is best for him and we'll be okay.

I sort of root for Michigan, and I don't really want to see them lose, but I wouldn't mind seeing R-Rod bombing in his first season there, having the UM folks screaming for Carr to com back.

It would be a bonus if Stewart went undefeated with WVU and took them to the championship game.

fyi, under nehlen we went 7-5 and won a bowl game

the next year under rod he changed the system and had two immobile qbs running the spread option; he did not fit the system to the players; went 3-8, losing to temple

and a lot of players transfered; that 1st year we had under 70 scholarship players

Good. I hope he thrives somewhere, he would fit the tall white, immobile Tennessee QB standard, so i can see that working out well.

Just throwing it out there. Notre Dame went from BCS to CRAP and Michigan is looking in ROUGH, ROUGH shape. They have no one..

Doubt it, not just because I'm a Michigan fan. Our defense should be much improved. Assuming Terrance Taylor stays, we should only lose two defensive starters in Shawn Crable and Jamar Adams. Carlos Brown and Brandon Minor proved the cupboard at RB isn't bare and Greg Mathews has some significant experience at WR.

How do Michigan fans feel about no longer having a Pro-Style offense? You're already seeing the backlash from players with Pro aspirations wanting to get out now. In the future, it will be hard to attract them.

Yet on the other hand, I'm fairly confident that Rodriguez's spread offense will have success in the Big 10 so you should win more.

Personally, I feel that spread-option and gimicky offenses are good for schools with lower recruiting budgets that don't get as many high-profile players. I feel that when it comes time to actually play against the best competition, they usually don't perform as well. Yeah, there are examples of where I am wrong, but I just don't think that Michigan will ever get to a Rose Bowl under Rich Rodriguez. To an even greater extent, I see Georgia Tech falling hard due to Paul Johnson installing the triple-option. I understand the need for the system at Navy, but he will be torn apart in the ACC. Four years at the most is what I am giving Johnson and I don't think Rodriguez will last more than 5 years.

I think Rodriguez is relying way too much on the 20% chance that he gets Pryor.

You hit it right on the head. Kiss good bye to the days when Michigan QBs, WRs, TEs and OL used to be drafted.

He's trying to lure other dual threat QBs who have already committed to schools. Not that good of a sign.

Um last I checked we tend to do well in the Big 10. Amazing how easily people forget...

I hate the offense. It's way too gimmicky, and Michigan is known as a school that produces NFL players at positions like OL and QB. Just doesn't seem right.

neh, Michigan has some good defensive players returning this year. They'll at least win 7 games or so just based on the fact they still have some Michigan talent. Plus the spread offense is a gimmick offense designed for teams who usually don't have superior talent, so they should have a good offense by default like Northwestern and MSU usually do (2 teams who have been running the spread all this decade). Threet shouldn't be THAT bad, and even if he is they got some Juco guys they're looking at.

One thing's for sure though...Tressel is gonna give Rodriguez's team a beatdown in the shoe next season with his team loaded full of talented juniors and seniors and a probably top 5 ranking.

Well now it will be known as a school that produces other positions, or running QB's and ZBS OL's

Missouri and Oregon run the spread yet they don't seem to have a problem getting NFL talent at the WR, OL, and TE positions. If they have a read option like WVU did with White and Slaton though they'll have a hard time recrutiting the WRs and TEs they usually get.

Crompton is probably gonna be terrible this season, so i'd say that by next year he would be able to compete for the job and win.

Mallett would've never been able to develop at Michigan, even with Lloyd Carr. It was a mistake to sign there in the first place. He has terrible accuracy, which was so bad they even played a hurt Henne over Mallett.

hey man i'm just posting what I saw. Henne started as a freshman. +, that's what i meant that he would never develop. Their QB coach wouldn't have developed him well, as Henne was pretty much alys the same henne, which is why I thought it was a bad decision for him to go to Michigan. They have a track record for underachieving college QB's.

Henne didn't have a three year starter ahead of him did he? Mallett rarely took first team snaps and didn't get along with a lot of the team, Manningham especially. Henne played pretty well this season when he was fully healthy, and played well sometimes when he was injured. Mallett has a laser for an arm but it took numerous great plays from his receivers to bail him out. The knock on Mallett coming out of HS was mobility and accuracy, so it's not like Michigan's staff made him suck.

They could have made him a lot better. You can't judge that by such a small sample size that Mallett had.
