Ex-Wolverine Updates

Rich Rodriguez
Former Michigan RB Michael Cox: Cox had 15 carries for 44 yards in UMass's first victory this season, a 22-14 win over Akron.  UMass is 1-9 and Akron is 1-10, so this wasn't exactly a huge upset.

Former Michigan CB commit Dallas Crawford: Crawford had 3 tackles in Miami's 41-40 loss to Virginia.

Former Michigan S Carvin Johnson: Johnson had 4 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and 1 fumble recovery in Hampton's 35-27 loss to Delaware State.

Former Michigan QB commit Kevin Newsome: Newsome played as a backup quarterback, going 0/1 passing with 2 rushing attempts for 5 yards.  Temple lost by a score of 34-10.

Former Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez: Without injured starting quarterback Matt Scott, Rodriguez relied on the running game to beat Colorado 56-31.  Arizona running back Ka'Deem Carey had 25 carries for 366 yards and 5 touchdowns.  Carey now has 1,381 yards and 18 touchdowns on the season.

Former Michigan S Ray Vinopal: Vinopal had 1 tackle in Pitt's 24-17 loss to UConn.

Former Michigan CB commit Adrian Witty: Witty had 2 tackles and 1/2 a tackle for loss in Cincinnati's 34-10 victory over Temple.


  1. The numbers that Arizona is putting up on a week by week basis are Oregon like. How could the defense in that conference be so inept that they give up almost 400 yds and 5 tds to a single running back. Holy shit the buffs are bad. I think Rich picked the right place to coach this time.

    1. I agree wholeheartedly. Rodriguez operates better in offense-heavy conferences like the Pac-12 or the Big East, and probably would have been okay in the Big 12. But I don't think he could be a successful coach in the Big Ten or SEC because those conferences actually play defense.

  2. Where did Chris Rock end up?

    1. I don't know that he's turned up anywhere else.
