RODRIGUEZ: TALKING WITH ALABAMA FOR 20 MINUTES. OR NINETY.

New, 58 comments

Rich Rodriguez talked with Alabama officials while he was in New York. What's talking?

"It was an informal meeting," Rodriguez, whose wife Rita sat in on the meeting as well, told ESPN.com's Ivan Maisel. The get-to-know-you get-together lasted "25, 30 minutes. How long did it last, Rita?"

"Ninety minutes," she said.

"Oh," Rodriguez said. "Well, we didn't talk about anything specific. We didn't talk about plans or facilities or anything."

This shows you that though he may be a red-hot coaching prospect and approaching the peak of his profession, his wife will still not allow him to tell a good story without public and accurate correction.


Rich: rich. But still married.
