Morgantown, W.Va. Rich Rodriguez discussed taking West Virginia to its second BCS game in three seasons and the challenge of facing Oklahoma's offense. What the Mountaineers' coach didn't want to talk about Saturday was Michigan's vacant head-coaching job.
Rodriguez said at the opening of a previously scheduled news conference on No. 11 West Virginia's trip to the Fiesta Bowl that he was only going to focus on preparations to face the third-ranked Sooners.
"It may be disappointing to you, but I am not going to talk about any rumors or innuendo or jobs or what else is floating out there," Rodriguez said.
