Saw the trailer for "How to Get Away With Murder" or whatever the new show is about some Criminal Law or Criminal Procedure class. This should really help educate the public about how the criminal system works (he said sarcastically). I cannot bring myself to watch it.

He may be the second coming of Jake Kelchner!


It would be perfect if his first name was Kent.

This week's updated bowl projections.

I watched 2 Ole Miss games this year. I think they'd pound us like a drum. We would have a harder time against them than Alabama or Oklahoma.


That is a pretty bold statement given that Ole Miss has played Boise State, Vanderbilt, Louisiana-Lafayette and Memphis. They play Alabama this weekend, which should be a good indicator of where Ole Miss stands.

Any WV kid with half a chance of being good enough to play at WVU should get an offer ... PERIOD!

We better not let this kid go somewhere else.


Are you kidding me? Why would you risk throwing away a limited amount of scholarships on a kid who "might have a chance to be good"? We are in an arms race with Texas, OU, OSU, Baylor, etc. We can't afford to be giving even one scholarship away to a kid who may be ok but is only even looked at cause he is from WV. That is what doomed bill Stewart and would soon any staff here.

Fortunately our AD and HC can see beyond state lines


You might want to take another look at the University's Charter and why it even exists to begin with.

I will give you a hint, the Unversity was not created to WIN football games.


SG is right. The charter specifically states that the university was created to give athletic scholarships to mediocre football players from WV who might never see any playing time.

Eers88, I really don't know the answer to this question, but you might. Is a background check on a minor (someone under the age of 18) even feasible? In other words, can you find out any criminal information on a minor, and even if you could, isn't that information made moot upon their 18th birthday except in certain circumstances (e.g., driving record, crimes for which a person is charged as an adult)?

A number of the students applying to any university have not reached the age of majority by the time that admissions decisions are made and/or letter of intent have been signed (in the case of student athletes). My guess is that a majority of applicants applying for early admission and/or signing letters of intent are still 17 years old when they are admitted (which is why a parent signature is required on letters of intent for people under the age of 18).


I didn't even think of that and it is a good point. I think criminal records for minors aren't as available as criminal records for adults. Bubbles might know the answer.

In this world of political correctness run amok ...

does WVU even have the right to ASK if the applicant has a criminal record??? Much less do a criminal background check without the applicant's authorization.

Did Mickey even bother to look into that???


They can ask and/or conduct a criminal background check. With the background check they are exposing themselves to liability for discrimination and other claims. This is an issue in the employment context, with public employers running background checks on applicants and employees. Most public employers don't believe it is worth the risk for most employment positions. Most of them ask during the application process, and if the applicant/employee lies and they find out, they can refuse to hire the applicant or fire the employee based on the lie, which would be a violation of their policies. I don't think that policy would work well with college athletes.

Please stop pretending that only GW deniers understand these concepts and that scientists haven't taken these and other factors into consideration. If you really believe this, you don't know anything about the actual science.


This is a blog and only a blog. Did it ever occur to you that some may choose not to post much. I kept the comment succinct and to the point, deliberately.

Sorry you can't comprehend either point, and more sorry that you don't understand how science really works and have to resort to name calling and religious innuendo when doing so. You should try reading from many more sources before you draw conclusions. My opinion - it's a fluid field and very, very, very far from settled. Again, sorry you can't comprehend how true science, not scientism or political agendas, work.


Your "point" in both of your posts was to attack people and not ideas. You spent a single (unbolded) sentence giving your opinion on the subject, and the rest of it commenting about how dumb everybody else is. Neither succinct nor to the point.

Long went to prep school, not Junior College. It is like adding another year of high school.

Mickey's writing these days reminds me of Gabby Johnson from Blazing Saddles.


I should have know better. I should have know better. I should have known better.

Damn it Lester, I gave him a hit just to read another slam WVU piece.

I should have known better.

And no, Gabby speaks better than Mickey writes.


Well, at least Fufari gave us this little gem, to go alongside Par White, Steve Slayton, glod jerseys ...

DeForest, who’s from Titusville, Fla, also served assistant coaching stints at Rice and Duke before joining Hologorsen for one year when both were at Oklahoma State.

Hologorsen? Really? Hologorsen? That is just pure unadulterated awesomeness.

EDIT: Can anyone diagram this sentence for me?

Positives were a blocked punt by James Harper and the game-winning 47-yard field goal by Josh Lambert were highlights by special teams in the victory at Maryland.

This is what kills me. Is a guy that can work with kickers really worth $500K annually? Especially if we go for it on 4th down so often? Makes no sense. I want to be sure there is enough money to keep Seider, Galloway and Gibson. They are bringing in all the recruits.

Sorry for crowding the board earlier with this post on a new thread, didn't see this one was already in the works...

Ton of noise being made already about firing DeForest as ST Coordinator, but not only is Dana not going to do it - it also doesn't make sense.

We need to fully understand and value what we have here: DeFo is one of the best in the country, is a very good recruiter and a good position coach on Defense (I agree not a good D-Coordinator). Also, in regard to the Special Teams aspect, most people don't know this: he's one of the very very few STC's who can actually coach kickers and punters. The extreme majority of STC's cannot actually coach specialists beyond "head down, follow through".

I get that a lot of people are bringing up the MD punt return and the Oklahoma kickoff return as a reason for why he should get canned. What those people forget is that those are isolated plays and there isn't a trend here. What it boils down to is that DeFo is responsible for scheme, personnel and yes, even some amount of execution. What he can't do is actually ensure that #19 (for example) will make that tackle against the returner on a kick or punt play. No coach can do that. Dana and Lonnie Galloway can't guarantee that Kevin White will absolutely catch a fly pattern if he's wide open, can they? Nope - and they shouldn't be fired if he drops it, either.


If eForest is staying, then they need to have a plan to rehabilitate his reputation with the fans. Step 1 should be teaching him how to wear a cap so he doesn't look like a doofy 7th grader who spends a lot of time in detention.
