"People didn't give coach Rod a chance once he first got there," Graham told TheReporterOnline.com, a publication that serves North Penn, Pa., after practice on Wednesday. "He made us all better players. And I'm happy for what he's done for me the last two years. It's just that a lot of people who really wanted coach (Lloyd) Carr never gave coach Rod a chance. All of those people making those allegations are wrong because coach Rod tried to do everything by the book. And he made sure he let us know it's all about family and being together. The people that left (the program) wasn't our family, really. That's why they left."
If you want to know why so many of us support and admire Rodriguez, there it is. You can believe Morgan Trent or Brandon Graham. You know who I'm siding with.
