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.

Here's The Catch Of The Day, From The Offensive Explosion That Was Baylor At West Virginia

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

West Virginia's Toxic Circus: The Boozer, The Lame Duck, And The Vengeful Coach's Wife

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
