I see Michigan winning their next 3 games against Penn State, Illinois, and Purdue but then losing their last 2 games against Wisconsin and Ohio State. That would leave them with an 8-4 record and most likely a Florida bowl. Is that enough to keep Rich Rod around?

Probably, but I'm sure their patience is wearing thin. 8-4 is really not that good of a record with the easy schedule they play. They hired Rich Rod with the expectation that he would make them National contenders and be on par with tOSU again. He's failed miserably thus far. Although, I still see him getting at least one more year bearing a complete meltdown down the stretch this season.
Rich Rod just isn't a good fit for the Big 10. He doesn't have a recruiting base that allows him to create depth at the skill positions with the types of athletes he needs to run his version of the spread offense.
He would fare much better in the SEC/ACC/Pac 10/Big 12.
