Texas A&M Assistant Keeps Hitting WVU Players On The Sideline

Texas A&M is currently taking on West Virginia in the Liberty Bowl, and one of the team's student assistants is a little too geeked out right now, so much so that he can't stop hitting West Virginia players who come near him on the sideline. » 12/29/14 4:09pm 12/29/14 4:09pm

West Virginia QB Clint Trickett's First Kiss Was Nick Saban's Daughter

Nick Saban is perhaps the Platonic ideal of the kind of dad that strikes fear into the heart of any boy foolish enough to attempt dating his daughter, especially because he could likely get away with murder in the state of Alabama. And yet, West Virginia quarterback Clint Trickett, who is playing Alabama this… » 8/27/14 3:34pm 8/27/14 3:34pm

West Virginia Coach Tells Truth, School Pretends It Never Happened

In the wild world of the NCAA, we're forced to swallow a lot of crap from coaches about educating the future, turning boys into men, etc. So honesty is pretty refreshing on the rare chance that it occurs.

Reports: The Big Ten Wants Maryland And Rutgers

Pat Forde and ESPN are reporting that serious talks are afoot to fold Maryland and Rutgers into the Big Ten. Not only would that create a 14-member conference that'd surely be the biggest Ten in the world, it would reopen the scabby wound of major conference realignment. The ACC, the Terps' current home, would be… » 11/17/12 6:58pm 11/17/12 6:58pm

So the Old Spice Classic hasn't happened yet. It starts on Nov. 22, Thanksgiving, with West Virginia, Gonzaga, Davidson, Clemson, Marist, UTEP, Oklahoma, and Vanderbilt battling to win all the deodorant.

Here's The Catch Of The Day, From The Offensive Explosion That Was…

Ooooh-wheee, that was a good one. It wasn't quite as close as it looked in the end—70-56 until Baylor struck one last time with about three minutes left, whereupon the Mountaineers were able to run the clock down—but it was back-and-forth for most of the game. West Virginia bled the clock partly with the help of the… » 9/29/12 4:48pm 9/29/12 4:48pm

A Chain Reaction Takes Out Every Horse In This Race But One

This is not a live-action Wile E. Coyote reenactment. It is video from Saturday's Bridge Day in Fayetteville, West Virginia, where BASE jumpers try their luck from the New River Gorge Bridge.

West Virginia Man Who Went Streaking Near NASCAR Race Also Caught With…

Joshua Emery Greene looks bemused in the mugshot featured in the above video. We find this an appropriate emotion, because we're bemused too. Why did he go streaking in a parking lot off Route 394 in Bristol, Tennessee, where the Irwin Tools Night Race took place on Saturday? And why was he carrying a live raccoon? » 8/30/11 9:15pm 8/30/11 9:15pm

West Virginia's Toxic Circus: The Boozer, The Lame Duck, And The…

West Virginia's coaching situation is, to put it as mildly as we can, a total clusterfuck. Whoever in the athletics office thought it would be a good idea to hire Dana Holgorsen as head-coach-in-waiting, while still keeping current coach Bill Stewart around for another year, ought to find themselves out of a job soon… » 6/06/11 11:25am 6/06/11 11:25am

Hugh Is Impressed With What He Sees From the 'Eers
