Does Demar Dorsey Situation Represent Rift Between Rodriguez And University?

Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press writes that one result of the University of Michigan’s decision to deny Demar Dorsey admission is a perception that there is a developing gap between university officials and head football coach Rich Rodriguez.

The real issue is whether Dorsey’s status indicates a widening gulf between the administrative hierarchy and Rich Rodriguez.

The admissions office’s decision is not just a reflection of what the university thinks of Dorsey. It’s also a reflection — on several levels, you must believe — on what it thinks of Rodriguez and whether he’s targeting recruits the university doesn’t want any connection with.
