Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez became emotional when speaking at a university event last night. The event was set up to honor the 1985 football team that finished number two in the rankings, and the embattled coach addressed the crowd with tears in his eyes. With the Michigan football teams accumulating a 15-21 record during his tenure, many people think the University will fire Rodriguez and look for a new coach after the bowl game. Apparently, the coach is feeling the heat:
“I came here three years ago, leaving my comfort zone, because I thought this was a great opportunity,” he said. "I knew after being on the job for a few months there were going to be some challenges. And more come out in front of us. We never ran away from it.
The coach began to cry during his speech as he pleaded with the crowd, "My name is Rich Rodriguez,” he said. “I’m honored to be the football coach at Michigan. I hope you realize I want to be a Michigan man.”
Later, he said that he was drawing strength from a Josh Groban song, You raise me up. After tearfully reciting the lyrics of the first verse, he had the song played over the loud speakers. At the end of the song, he held hands with his wife and the emcee and raised his arms, awkwardly. Several seconds past before the rest of the room joined him. “This may seem kind of cheesy or sappy or what have you, but I’ve been listening to it the last few weeks, and it kind of fits the mood of what we’re in right now."
No, I'm not making this up.
Part of me was waiting to see Tom Hanks bust into the ballroom and shout, "There's no crying or Josh Groban songs in football!!!"
