I'm in no way a UM fan, but it sounds like sour grapes from WVU. If it's important you have multiple paper copies stored in separate places, in case of fire. You also have them saved electronically to back it all up. This wouldn't be a story if they weren't so scared they may have made a mistake letting him go. Ie, they wouldn't develop the facilities, etc. Rodriguez thought were necessary to continue to compete at that level.
Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
'Struck by a Cyclone
It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'
Is that what they're trying to convince you of on talk radio in Michigan?
Easy tiger. First of all, this article was posted at 10pm. Not sure how much sports radio is on at this time of the night. Secondly, I am a Cyclone on a Cyclone message board. Not sure about your personal jab. I loathe the Little 11 just like the rest of us.
My comment was based on the fact that there are a lot of people ****** off at Rodriguez for leaving WVU. This goes all the way up to the governor of WV who called him out. They are also in the middle of a lawsuit against him for leaving before his contract was up. People are going to try and dig up whatever they can to tarnish the man.
My guess is the files were nothing more than papers on potential future recruits (why would not discard those at a school you are no longer employed) and basic stuff that accumulates in an office that you work out of for years. Like the article said, player files including grades and disciplinary actions have to be recorded in numerous other places as well... not just a coaching office.
