Rich Rodriguez is deep into his second season as Michigan coach, but a group of former players continue to express their dissatisfaction with his hiring, which broke the Bo Schembechler lineage.
That group, which supported the hiring of former Schembechler disciple Les Miles as coach, may never be happy. They continue to express displeasure over Rodriguez's first team that finished 3-9, ending Michigan's bowl streak of 33, and an investigation that was launched into alleged misconduct regarding NCAA practice rules.
Then there is Lloyd Carr, the former coach who hasn't publicly supported Rodriguez and his staff.
Two weeks ago, Carr's appearance in the press box at Iowa drew the ire of former quarterback Rich Leach.
"Who's ticket did he go on, who's private box was he sitting and who's university staff was in the box with him?" Leach said. "As far as I'm concerned, I love our coach [Rodriguez], I love what they're trying to do. Our ex-coach flipped a huge middle finger right in our current coach's face. So ask people to investigate that."
Carr declined comment, but former tight end Aaron Shea came to his defense while ripping Leach.
"There's not a bigger Michigan Man that I know than Lloyd Carr and look who he learned from — Bo," Shea said. "Bo coached Rick Leach, and for him to call [out] Lloyd Carr really, frankly, pisses me off."
