Football and Basketball Quick Hits


Just a few quick hits… this snowy weather makes me really lazy.

Jerks Up North hire Todd Graham as coach, Staff has WVU flavor
So, this staff is pretty much like a carbon-copy of RichRod’s early WVU staff. Calvin Magee (who burned his bridge back to WVU by playing the often-abused race card) is sPitt’s offensive coordinator; Tony Gibson also joined Graham’s staff. Can we expect to see the Spread Offense and the 3-3-5 implemented in Shittsburgh?

WVU upsets 13th-ranked Georgetown by “having fun.”
Well, it appears the boys are back, according to Kevin Jones. Let’s hope so, the Big East doesn’t get any easier… but, congrats to the boys for knocking off the always-annoying Georgetown.

WVU Finishes outside Top-25.
Despite that, WVU is STILL the highest-ranked Big East team (by result of gaining votes.) Future Big East member TCU finished 2nd, and potential future Big East member Central Florida finished 20th.

In the “Recruiting” department…

Coach Stewart announces 3 enrollments.
Today, Coach Stew announced that 3 guys will be (or already are) enrolling for the Spring Semester here in Morgantown: QB Brian Athey, LB Josh Francis, DB Avery Williams. Other guys, like Flower Mound (TX) High School QB Paul Millard is expected to enroll. Also, the DC twins, Vance and Vernard Roberts, are also enrolled early. Welcome to Morgantown, guys, enjoy the snow!
