Just when you think the Rich Rodriguez-to-Michigan story can't get any juicier, word comes from Morgantown that the former WVU coach may have destroyed all the paperwork relating to every player -- past and present -- over the past seven years. We agree with R-Rod's agent, Mike Brown, who is baffled that the school didn't have copies of such important records. For those late to the Rodriguez-to-Michigan party, the Wizard of Odds has done an excellent job tracking all the craziness since the coach's departure from Morgantown.
