A story about Rich Rod

Well as most Panther fans know, the day after the Backyard Brawl (13-9), Rich Rodriguez went on a little recruiting trip to Monroeville, Pa to visit the then uncommitted Cameron Saddler. Much to the dismay of DickRod, Dave Wannstedt was already in the house having dinner with the Saddler family. While Dave and co. were enjoying a nice dinner, the slimy Rodriguez drove to a mini-mall near Saddler's house. He then texted Cam and asked him to let him know once Wannstedt had left. Wanny left and being true to his word, Saddler told DickRod that Dave had left (he left out the part that he verballed to Dave though). DickRod enters the Saddler household and the recruiting pitch begins.

This is the whole point of the story.

Dickrod told Cam on Dec. 2 that he was in fact considering the Michigan job. He didn't say to Cam that he should go to UM if he leaves, but recruited him for WVU only. That's a pretty interesting story that happened 1 day after the Brawl.

I still don't believe that Dickrod threw the game (as many hoopies are claiming) but I do believe that Dickrod was itching to get out of Morganhole. Michigan was probably the highest job he could ever be offered and took it. Despite all of this, Panther fans can be happy that on a cold December night, we were able to shatter the hopes, dreams, and possibly future of our most hated rival.

One last item regarding T. Pryor, did you know a few people approached him prior to the pitt-gu bb game for autographs and he declined!

The kid is the ultimate headcase, he is also very rude.

I hope he goes to UM or tOSU!

Regarding Pryor not giving autographs - that might be the only positive thing I've read about him in the past month. No 18 year old should be doing that anyway - maybe he was actually acting humble, and not trying to be the center of attention in a place where the spotlight should have been on other PITT kids....

Reed, come on, humble, here was his opportunity to be a role model and make some kids day, but he chose to be a stuck up ignorant ass, TP is a head case, he will never be a positive role model.

TP is going to turn out like TO, mark my words.

i agree with foge- he's the best in his class, it's appropriate for him to be giving autographs if asked for. hell, i'd give some kid an autograph if they asked for it- it wouldn't be worth anything, but at least they would think they got something valuable. pryor's turning down autographs only shows he doesn't care about anybody other than himself

I'm with Foge also, Mr. 100,000 has a head the size of McKees Rocks.
