Michigan Coach Rich Rodriguez gets emotional at football banquet
Oh, Rich Rodriguez, nobody wants a football coach who plays/quotes/repeatedly listens to
"Feelings" Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up."
Nobody. Especially nobody who's trying to enjoy dinner.
Rodriguez, the Michigan football coach who's 15-21 in three seasons, got a little too personal and very emotional, tearing up at the team's annual football banquet and reading the first verse of the lyrics to "You Raise Me Up."
"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."
His actions made the program look weak and soft. And now maybe we can see why Michigan lacked enough toughness to compete with the better teams in the Big Ten.
This was one of the most embarrassing moments in Michigan football history. It is something Buckeyes and Badgers and Spartans will laugh at for years to come.
