Does Rich Rodriguez have something to hide?

And it's probably not millions of dollars either. Trip found this in the Charleston (WV) Gazette, and Rich Rod is up to something. Rodriguez destroyed, player files, and player activities all at West Virginia.

Rodriguez, which bolted before the Fiesta Bowl game was said to be in WV Puskar Center with another member of his staff that moved on, and found this out.

"the staff at the Puskar Center found that most of the files — including all of the player files — that had been stored in Rodriguez’s private office were missing. In addition, all of the players’ strength and conditioning files in the weight room were gone. "

It continues on to what Rodriguez did

"According to the source, the files in Rodriguez’s office that are now missing included everything from records regarding summer camps — financial and otherwise — to data on boosters, recruiting and most everything related to activities within the program during Rodriguez’s seven years at WVU."

"Most disturbing, though, is the absence of all of the players’ personal files, which included, among other things, contact information, scholarship money awarded, class attendance records and records on personal conduct and community service, be it positive or negative. "

Why would Rodriguez do this? I mean does he have something to hide? Is he dirty? These are all questions that probably need answered at some point in time.

It could also be an attempt for West Virginia to get back at Rodriguez for bolting to Ann Arbor as well, and to help get back the four million that Rodriguez owes. Whatever the situation is, something smells fishy in West Virginia.
