Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez apparently needs to take a lesson from Joe Paterno and stop reading message boards.
"It's amazing some of the things that people would say [on a message board] or yell at you of a personal nature," Rodriguez said Monday. "You almost want to tell them, 'Get a life.'
"There's a whole lot bigger problems. Look at the economy."
In a season that his Wolverine team has lost a school record 8 games including a record 5 at home, not to mention missed out on a bowl game for the first time in 33 years, maybe the last thing he should be worried about is what people are saying on blogs and message boards. Perhaps he should concentrate all his energy on Ohio State; that game is, after all, kind of a big deal for Wolverine fans. Maybe he doesn't know it's a rivalry.
