Coach Rod has led Michigan to LAST PLACE in the Big 10
With two conference games remaining (against Wisconsin and OSU), Michigan (5-5, 1-5) is sitting in a tie for last place in the Big 10. Columnist Lynn Henning of The Detroit News analyzed Michigan's stunning fall from grace in the article, "U-M's lack of success under under Rich Rodriguez is mystifying." After 40 consecutive seasons (1968-2007) without a losing record, Coach Rod led Michigan to a dismal 3-9 record in 2008. The Wolverines are mired in last place in the conference this season and if the Wolverines fail to win one of their final two games then Michigan will finish as low as 10th place for the first time since 1934. To avoid this ignominious fate, Michigan will need to dig deep and find a way to win against the Badgers and/or the Buckeyes in the coming weeks. Go Blue!
