Subtraction by Addition

How does the 2nd worst defense in the Big Ten improve itself after just one year?  Well, the go out and hire the worst coach in FBS the last 4 seasons, that’s how!

Former Syracuse head coach, Greg Robinson, was hired to be the defensive coordinator for Rich Rodriquez’s Michigan Wolverines.  Robinson led the Cuse to a spectacular 10-37 in his 4 years with the Orangemen.

Now, Robinson did win 2 Super Bowls as the DC with the Denver Broncos, so he has those rings going for him like Mike Shanahan.  His defenses weren’t that successful in Kansas City and with the Jets, but gosh darn it, he has two Super Bowl rings!

I  am just going to continue to sit back and enjoy the mess that is in Ann Arbor.  It is quite beautiful from this spot.
