PHOTO: Ron English skydiving with a guy who looks like RichRod
Eastern Michigan coach Ron English once went skydiving with a guy who looked exactly like Rich Rodriguez.
UPDATE: this is not actually Rich Rodriguez. See corrections below.
Thanks to MGoBlog for unearthing this photo of Rich Rodriguez a guy who looks an awful lot like Rich Rodriguez skydiving with Eastern Michigan coach Ron English. English skydived alongside the U.S. Army Golden Knights in 2011 and has promised to dive again if EMU reaches a 2013 fundraising goal.
That English's tandem jumper is a near-perfect Rodriguez doppelganger might not be coincidence, though, since 1.) English coordinated Michigan's defense just before RichRod's arrivial there, and 2.) a skydive remains a perfect metaphor for what happened to Michigan football once Rodriguez took over the program.
