More goodies from Rich Rodriguez's deposition, thanks to the efforts of Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press.
Rich Rod said he planned an expansion of his website at West Virginia to provide "inside information" as a fundraiser for projects that were not getting the support that the coach wanted. The idea appeared similar to Dennis Franchione's VIP Connections newsletter, which paved the way for Fran's ouster at Texas A&M.
Rich Rod wanted to charge $90 a year for the inside information, which would have included goodies such as human interest features written by his wife, Rita.
The coach also dodged repeated attempts to find out if someone from Michigan would fork over the $4 million to West Virginia if Rich Rod were to lose the lawsuit. Rodriguez was instructed not to answer those questions by his attorney, Marv Robon.
