Folks have been asking me how I feel about the whole Rich Rod thing. Well, gee, let's see. I'm at a level of POd that I haven't been to in a long time.
It's not the leaving. People have all sorts of reasons to take and leave jobs, and I'm not judging their reasons, even if I may not agree.
It's the way he left. First, he calls his recruits and tells them. Then he tells the team. That's wrong. The players had calls from the recruits before the meeting even started! Then, when he gives his letter of resignation to a GRADUATE ASSISTANT (who's about as low on the pecking order as you can get...trust me, I remember) to deliver to the officials. At least be a man and don't hide.
I'm not crazy about Nehlen's comments either. But that's another post.

In summation, Rich, you gotta go. Thanks to WVSoundman for the inspired song. I can't believe he got it written and produced that quickly!
