Rodriguez Finally Broken?

Michigan first-year coach Rich Rodriguez has kept his composure this season despite leading college football's winningest program to its first losing season in four decades.
But Rodriguez seemed to approach a breaking point earlier this week.
"Y'all want to make everything so much drama," Rodriguez snapped at reporters. "This is unbelievable. Every time there's something said, everybody wants to make a big deal out of something and make so much drama about everything.
"That's why I don't tell y'all too much. You think I tell you a lot. I think I've been pretty transparent, but sometimes I don't because I don't know what y'all are going to take and make a big deal out of a wee little thing," he said. "Seems like for nine, 10, months that's happened. Oh, he said this. Let's psychoanalyze this, psychoanalyze that.'
"We're not going to a bowl game, but do you think we're going to pack it in? You think the guys are a bunch of quitters? I don't think we've got any quitters. You think the coaches are going to pack it in, not show up for work? Golly."
The once-mighty Wolverines (2-7, 1-4 Big Ten) have lost five straight -- since rallying from a 19-point, second-half deficit to beat Wisconsin -- and will have to win at Minnesota, against Northwestern and at Ohio State to avoid a school-record eighth loss.
