VIDEO: Rich Rodriguez Makes a Fine Sheriff

By Jason Priestas on June 17, 2013 at 3:39p

This promo for Arizona football, called "Hard Edge," and featuring Rich Rodriguez as a cigar-chompin' sheriff (of Joshgrobanville, we presume) is well done.

I think that video does a better job promoting mouth cancer than it does Zona football.

I think MGOBLOg might get a kick out of this.

Their version of 11W?

That hurt to type.

It was a sarcastic joke, because Michigan and their fans are the dregs.

No worries, just my way of acknowledging, uh, them.

It is the second most entertaining college football site  (EDSBS #1), primarily for the laughs.  It's a great site that predates most others.  Brian is an objectively good writer.

Their need for kittens after we see them on the field is absolutely hilarious.

Its authorship doesn't seem too keen to talk about Rodriguez. It would be kind to respect their wishes and not speak to them about it. Hounding them through the site's message boards, email, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Vine or any other form of media about a former Michigan coach would be impolite.

Ceci n'est pas une signature.

Understood. I just get bad flashbacks at times.

My favorite Rich Rodriguez moment was The Game in 2009, when a friend and I were trying to scalp tickets outside the Big House. A disgruntled Michigan fan approached us, and acting like he was peddling a nuclear weapon to terrorists, sold us two tickets for $90 a piece. "Hurry up," he said, "I don't want flak from fans for selling to Buckeyes fans, but they're the only ones buying today."

My second favorite moment came when a guy wearing a Michigan flag as a cape non-ironically told us "Mike Hart was a better running back than Beanie Wells." (Hart would be released a few days later.) I told him to remember us when the "O H I O" chant rolled around the stadium in the fourth quarter, to which he just chortled. Needless to say, it happened.


...God bless Rich Rodriguez, and also God, I can't wait for the bi-annual sack of Ann Arbor this year. I may liveblog it.

Are you sure you weren't actually talking to Hart? Of course my tongue is planted firmly in cheek, but, while he was a terrific back, he also had an annoying habit of making boasts/promises he couldn't back up. 
As I sidebar, while I did not grow up a fanatical follower of UM (rare Michigander who found it just as easy to cheer for both MSU and UM), I can honestly say watching the O H I O cheer make its way through Michigan Stadium was painful.

Great post.  Sure, Hart was better than Beanie, uh huh.  Troy Smith was just an average QB in college, yet Denard is clearly top notch NFL material.  TTUN's academic program is better, just ask your alum Jim Harbaugh.
They can tease us about (winning and respected) Tressel and Woody and how they left but we never had Rich Rod or Gary Moeller thank-you-very-much.  Memories are selective north of Toledo.

Hey, he out performed Gary Moeller at that one.  Give him credit!

On a quest for the Rose 

Fun Fact: Arizona is the only team between the Pac-12 and Big Ten to not go to a Rose Bowl. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

2 Things:
1) How many takes did it take to make it that crappy.
2) Enjoy your quest for the rose, my favorite team is on a quest for the crystal.

That is so stupid.

I have always thought that RichRod looked like Garth Brooks, but now with that cowboy hat on the resemblance is undeniably uncanny. 
QUICK! RichRod or Garth???


New alum's picture

I see it!! Now the only question is whether or not Garth Brooks can sing Josh Groban songs...

That was very, very... strange.

I appreciate it for conjuring up enough unintentional images of Blazing Saddles and Three Amigos to keep it amusing, but otherwise that was just about the lamest thing ever.

Hmmm...   an On to the Next One production.  Is that referring to his coaching jobs?

As far as a production is concerned, that was actually really well done....but strange.

Looks like Rita Rodriguez has a really bright future as an executive producer!

The best part of that was.......drum roll please......That was the coach the team up north hired to coach their football team!...LMAO
In all seriousness though, I honestly don't think Brady Hoke will be around all that long either. I imagine he'll lose to Ohio State for the next couple years and get canned and they'll try to bring in someone like Jim Harbaugh or Les Miles. Not sure they'll get em but I just don't see Hoke being around that long.

Idaho Helga's picture

I can see Miles getting tired of LSU and just waiting for the opportunity which I think will come for him at TTUN (unless he goes more E. Gorden Gee on them; no they don't appreciate ethnic/religious jokes in Ann Arbor).  Hoke isn't a good game day coach on any given big game and his fan base is squealing louder and louder on that one. 
Which makes one want to compare him to John Cooper. Except Cooper had a ton of upsides short of the 3rd week in November and the bowl season.
