Rich Rodriguez: Some Michigan players 'felt a sense of entitlement'

Say, Coach Rodriguez, how were you able to win eight games in your first season at Arizona whereas your first Michigan team only managed three wins?

“We got total buy-in from the get-go here,” Rodriguez said. “From the players to the support staff to everybody that was touching the program. We had some guys committed at Michigan, but we had others that weren’t. Some guys felt a sense of entitlement. The name on the chest, and 'I’ve already arrived.'

“The Chad Hennes and the Jake Longs put the work in and succeeded before us, and guys behind them thought they were entitled to the same status but hadn’t proved anything.”

Don't ever change, Rich.
