How to Cash In on the Tar Heel Opening
FanBlogs has an update on the coaching opening at North Carolina and sums up its feelings on West Virginia's Rich Rodriguez reportedly being a Tar Heel candidate with one word: Flabbergasting. We'll add this: Unlikely. What Rodriguez is doing is gaining leverage in an attempt to renegotiate his contract with West Virginia at the expense of North Carolina. Check out the message boards at 850 the Buzz. Tar Heels fans are onto Rodriguez. Also joining us in this line of thinking is Football Scoop. Now if Rodriguez were to leave, it likely would be to replace Bobby Bowden at Florida State, or perhaps Larry Coker at Miami. At the moment, there are no openings at Florida State and Miami, leaving North Carolina as the only card that Rodriguez can play this week, the biggest week in the Mountaineers' season. It's all about timing and nobody realizes this better than Rodriguez.
