Carter had another amazing dribble and drive lay-up that I seldom saw him do at WVU. He also made an NBA three that was a thing of beauty. Although we all know he was amazing here, he really has been playing at the next level.

Frank Ragin, an employee of facilities management company ABM, “made a gesture toward” Jones, the TMZ article states. Jones confronted Ragin regarding the gesture, and the two exchanged words.

“Mr. Ragin eventually struck Mr. Jones with a closed fist, causing a laceration to Mr. Jones’ face,” authorities told TMZ. Ragin also struck Jones’ female companion, causing an injury to her hand. Jones defended himself, eventually causing Ragin to fall to the ground. Police determined Ragin was indeed the aggressor, and he was arrested on two counts of battery.

Ragin was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries he suffered during the fight. Jones and his companion refused medical treatment.

Jevon had a pretty good outing today and completely exposed Trey Young.... AGAIN.

John Antonik said "Looks like @nextlevel_03 guarded @TheTraeYoung all the way to the water fountain during today’s NBA summer league game. Isn’t summer supposed to be fun? @WVUhoops"



Jaren Jackson Jr. with his 4th 3-pointer of the first half. The final one from almost 40 feet... Meanwhile Trae Young is 0-for-9 from the floor - as Javon Carter has put the clamps on him


The @memgrizz are 1-0 to start the summer after a 103-88 win over the Hawks. Jevon Carter: 10 pts, 5 reb, 3 ast Trae Young shot 4-20, including 1-11 from 3. I wonder who defended him.


(BTW, the lone made 3 pointer happened when Jevon was on the bench)

How different this conversation would have been if we had a couple bounces our way against VT or Texas, or Grier didn't break his finger and we pulled out a win against Texas and our bowl game... Holgy would be building on back to back great years going into a chance at something special.

We still have a chance at something special, we have a very potent offense, and hopefully our defense will come along together well, just depends if those breaks go our way this time around this year, we're gonna be in those situations. Regardless, I think Holgy is fine for a couple more years, I agree that I don't think they'll switch coaches until the rights are up in 2022/2023 or whatever, and then we have a deep reflection and assess the situation.


Here is where I hope I sit on the fence as neither a Holgorsen lover or hater.

The problem I have with this program right now is that we have no back up at our most skilled position! YIKES!

We had a pretty good QB in Grier. He goes down and we have Chugs. Now I am not denigrating Chugs but he was WOEFULLY unprepared for taking the reins. But it gets worse from there!!!!! During the bowl game (or before, I can't remember) Holgy was asked about Chugs backup and he said....we have none. We go wildcat. So we don't even have a third body to put out on the field in arguably one of the most specialized and important positions on the field.

So what happens in the off-season? Chugs leaves....we all go....Yay. We have Grier and no real backup. Oh. This Israel is going to be the best thing since Betty White. Really? How many college snaps has he taken? Chugs was a good HS QB too.

....But wait....now Israel leaves. I am sure this Allison cat is the cat's meow, right? If you think this is the basis of a stable program you are nuts.

Here is what its like to have a real program.

http://www.thestate.com/sports/colleg ... ity/article209205519.html

This by the way from a team that we set a bowl record against. They actually have TWO QBs that will push each other to get better. Grier can sit on the sidelines and comb his hair as we can't even find a warm body to push him.

This is insane. It isn't like we just hired Holgy. Dudes about eligible for a state pension!

I remember when we complained that Holgy couldn't develop a top-tier QB now I would just be happy to have a guy with two-feet that could stand back there if the other two get hurt but that is too much to ask too.

Now if you are saying that the third string QB can't get time in practice or that he can't learn "the system", then maybe the system is too complicated. I would be for simplifying it since it hasn't really given us an undefeated season or even a season that could beat Oklahoma.

Not asking for him to be fired but I am not drinking any Holgy Kool-aid either.


IIRC, Cincinnati made it to a BCS game with their 4th string QB 8 or 10 years ago....

He was marginally worse than Lamont West (who pretty much single-handedly cost us losses against Kansas and Villanova by constantly leaving the 3 open), and he was a true freshman.

Did I miss something on Teddy Allen? A lot of yinz seem to think he will be a huge loss. I'm not so sure of that. When I watched him play, I saw a fairly un-athletic 6'5" tweener with limited shooting range who never saw a shot he didn't like and was not overly fond of defense. He showed some flashes of potential, but overall seemed like the exact opposite of an ideal Huggins player.


The problem is, Huggins' ideal player seems to be someone who always holds/passes the ball unless there's less than 4 seconds on the shot clock...it was refreshing to see someone actually try to play offense.

1 out of 5 WV Republicans voted for Blankenship.


Those 26k people should have their voting rights permanently revoked...and reinforced my belief that a person should have to pass a competency test before being allowed to vote.

Robin Williams (dementia trigger warning)

Random I know, but came across this today. I wasn't aware that he had a degenerative brain disease and I've never even heard of "Lewy Body" until today.

Pretty gut-wrenching stuff. He, essentially, was completely aware that he was losing his mind and it absolutely devastated him.

The first article from the Post pulls a lot from the letter his wife wrote at the second link.


https://nypost.com/2018/05/05/how-an-i ... obin-williams-final-days/

http://n.neurology.org/content/87/13/1308



Lewy body is the second-most common progressive dementia after Alzheimer’s disease. Unlike Alzheimer’s, in which sufferers have issues forming new memories, people with Lewy body dementia can form new memories but have a hard time retrieving them. It’s as if the very essence of Williams was still there — he just could no longer access it.





“He was sobbing in my arms at the end of every day. It was horrible. Horrible,” makeup artist Cheri Minns recalled. “He just cried and said, ‘I can’t, Cheri. I don’t know how anymore. I don’t know how to be funny.’ ”




(Billy) Crystal described seeing his old friend after a four-month absence, finding him frail, skinny and, most disconcerting, “uncharacteristically quiet.” When they said their goodbyes after dinner, Williams burst into tears.

“What’s the matter?” Crystal asked.

“Oh, I’m just so happy to see you. It’s been too long. You know I love you,” Williams said.

“I never heard him afraid like that before,” Crystal said. “This was the boldest comedian I ever met — the boldest artist I ever met. But this was just a scared man.”







No one can truly understand what Williams faced during those final days, but Crystal provides some insight into what it must have been like for such a high-functioning mind to unravel so violently.

“I put myself in his place. Think of it this way: The speed at which the comedy came is the speed at which the terrors came,” Crystal said. “And all that they described that can happen with this psychosis, if that’s the right word — the hallucinations, the images, the terror — coming at the speed his comedy came at, maybe even faster, I can’t imagine living like that.”





An excerpt from his wife:


While I was on a photo shoot at Phoenix Lake, capturing scenes to paint, he called several times. He was very concerned with insecurities he was having about himself and interactions with others. We went over every detail. The fears were unfounded and I could not convince him otherwise. I was powerless in helping him see his own brilliance.

For the first time, my own reasoning had no effect in helping my husband find the light through the tunnels of his fear. I felt his disbelief in the truths I was saying. My heart and my hope were shattered temporarily. We had reached a place we had never been before. My husband was trapped in the twisted architecture of his neurons and no matter what I did I could not pull him out.

In early May, the movie wrapped and he came home from Vancouver—like a 747 airplane coming in with no landing gear. I have since learned that people with LBD who are highly intelligent may appear to be okay for longer initially, but then, it is as though the dam suddenly breaks and they cannot hold it back anymore. In Robin's case, on top of being a genius, he was a Julliard-trained actor. I will never know the true depth of his suffering, nor just how hard he was fighting. But from where I stood, I saw the bravest man in the world playing the hardest role of his life.

Robin was losing his mind and he was aware of it. Can you imagine the pain he felt as he experienced himself disintegrating? And not from something he would ever know the name of, or understand? Neither he, nor anyone could stop it—no amount of intelligence or love could hold it back.

Right?

I think he's a great player...square peg, round hole though I guess.

I would have traded Esa for Teddy every day of the week and twice on Sunday though.



I've got the feeling Sags is gone too. 2018 is going to be a painful year. I don't think Bolden/Harris/Ahmad/West/Routt are capable alone of being a core for a great team, and I don't think any of the incoming guys are going to be able to contribute that much right away. I hope I'm wrong.

Either Routt goes back to walk-on status, Sags or Ahmad turns pro or someone else leaves.


BTW, the link above says Routt is going back to walk-on status.

With Allen's departure - and big man Logan Routt moving back to walk-on - the Mountaineers have room for one more addition in the recruiting class. The top target at the moment is Tacoma (WA) Wilson wing Emmit Matthews Jr.
