Braylon Edwards, recently flagged for piling on sports bloggers, now has a new target: Rich Rodriguez.
The receiver, who wore the No. 1 at Michigan, endowed a $500,000 scholarship for the Wolverine player who wears No. 1. That jersey number has been given to a receiver since 1979.
But as part of the changing culture of Michigan football, Rich Rod reportedly has given that number to freshman defensive back J.T. Floyd. When asked about this by ESPN Radio's Mike Tirico, a somewhat annoyed Edwards let it fly.
"I'm glad you gave me a 'Go Blue' question, because Rich Rod gave the No. 1 jersey to an incoming freshman DB. The No. 1 jersey has never been worn by anybody outside of a wide receiver — it dates back to Anthony Carter, so I'm going to have a talk with [Rodriguez] about that next time I see him. But outside of that, he's been doing a great job.
"He's getting that call soon, very soon. We have a jersey scholarship fund for this whole deal. What is he thinking?"
