Josh Groban makes fun of Rich Rod for crying to Raise Me Up on Twitter

As if Rich Rodriguez doesn’t have it bad enough worrying about getting fired from his job, now singer Josh Groban has made fun of the University of Michigan football coach on Twitter! At last night’s U of M football banquet, Rich Rod was brought to tears as he sang Groban’s classic “You Raise Me Up.” After three consecutive losing seasons, Rodriguez began singing the song to describe his emotional struggles, “It may seem kind of cheesy, sappy, what have you. I’ve been listening to it the last couple of weeks and kind of gets the mood we’re in right now.”

Groban has now responded to his newest fan on Twitter saying: “Coach Rodriguez, I’m very flattered but crying to You Raise Me Up is SO five years ago #playwelcometothejungle

If Rich Rod keeps his job do you think he will make the Wolverines add the song to their locker room playlist? To follow on Twitter click here!

    I couldn’t believe that I was reading about a football banquet when the reports came out the next day. I can’t even imagine any one of my coaches crying at a banquet let alone listening to Josh Groban, are you kidding me!?! If I was a player at that banquet the only reason I would be standing up would be to walk out of that room and into a different football program. I would want to be on a team with a coach who is at least 40 and A MAN!!! Not a coach that recruits middle school sized football players and gets ripped on by Josh Groban. Dave Brandon should have sacked up, cut the revival music, shinned the spot light on Harbaugh and said “Jimmy welcome home.”
