Hertzel is still angry that Stewart (RIP) was shown the door after all these years...he needs to get over it already.

That aside, I think Holgorsen will be around (barring him accepting a job elsewhere) for another 3 seasons given his contract.
For me, over the next 3 years Holgorsen needs to figure out a way to beat Oklahoma and to get us into the conference championship game. Going back to Hertzel's comparison of the program's last 4 coaches, Holgorsen has had the toughest schedule in regards to having to play top 20 teams. However, while Nehlen had an easier road in that regard he still eventually found a way to beat teams like Penn State and Miami. If Holgorsen can't post a win against Oklahoma in the next 2-3 seasons and has us yet again out of the Big 12 championship then I think it's fair to conclude that he's done all he is capable of and that we need to find a new HC who will get us over that hurdle.
I don't expect us to be a perennial powerhouse in the Big 12 but, looking down the road a bit, it would not be acceptable to be in this conference for 8-9 years and to not have had a shot at a conference championship during that time.

Konate reminds me of Bruce Irvin....a guy with a ton of upside but a raw talent who hasn't been playing the game all that long and still has a good deal to learn.

If Konate leaves for the NBA now I wish him the best but I think he'll be making a mistake....he still has to work on his game.

NOT FAKE NEWS
Due to impending wintry weather being forecast for the Morgantown area on Saturday, April 7, the 2018 Gold-Blue Spring Football Game has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.


And here's the link: http://wvmetronews.com/2018/04/05/sno ... rginia-nixes-spring-game/


I certainly understand cancelling it but why not reschedule it later in the month?

Most teams are having their Spring game later this month -

http://www.fbschedules.com/spring-football-game-schedule/

Just for example, Kansas and Oklahoma State have their Spring game on the 28th. Baylor, Kansas State and Texas have their game on the 21st.

Not rescheduling (or, for that matter, having a contingency plan in place in the event of inclement weather) is a dumb move by AD Lyons.

Good nose guards from a 3-3-5 are usually drafted because more is require of them. They have to swallow up two gaps and double teams to free up the backers. I'm not sure why he'd be upset with a rotation. Playing one way in college is harder then play both ways in high school especially when it's a day game and hot af!


Very true - there is little difference for a nose guard in the 3-3-5 or the 3-4-3. In both cases the Nose Guard is asked to be a force who requires an extra blocker and thus frees up a rushing LB. Those players who require double teams in the pros are worth a lot of $$ so if he has pro aspirations he's not doing himself any favors. Hope it works out for him.

Too bad that Loyola-Chicago's run came to an end but it's just as well - I don't think any of the remaining teams have a shot given how Villanova is playing.

Congrats to Miles and Carter - they will be sorely missed next year.


You are 100000% correct. We’re 2/3 of those early fouls Ticky tack? Yes. They would have shot FT’s 1:00 later. We had 5 wide open looks for 3 from the corner in this game and I counted 1 we hit. They had 7 and they hit 5 by my count. That’s the difference .

I don’t hate Nova. Always liked Wright and the old big east. But we need to adapt


Yup.

I'm not qualified to coach a bunch of Kindergarten kids but I think Huggins is 2 solid shooters away from having a Final Four team on his hands. In a way Huggins reminds me a lot of Nehlen in that he is a great coach who had kids who didn't get a lot of offers or were transfers and did a great job coaching them up.

Geez will you all lay off the teddy Allen thing. Hugs is making him play hugs game. Look at Oklahoma and Trey young....they let him run wild and ended up losing a bunch of games. Allen will either conform and play or he won't and sit.


But who did he “learn” at the expense of? We lost cause he didn’t play more. Forget tonight. Maybe if he plays 10 more minut s in the regular season we win 2 more games and are a 3 or a 2 and someone else beats Nova. I’m sure 2 & 4 are glad he learned a hard lesson at their expense

Don’t want to fire bob. Love him. But his handling of teddy cost us a final 4


Cometely disagree with Swim and Pride. Swim Allen will be great but we cant have players not listening to Huggs. Imagine if you had those kinds at work, you would suffer.

Pride, youre just an idiot. You make some of the worst comments on this board.

Allen is going to be good but just because he sat some this year does not mean he would have saved our season. He committed too many fouls and was at times out of control. Other Freshmen get the redshirt but at least he ayed. Huggs knows what he is doing


Well said.

People need to remember that Huggins sat Carter a lot for not doing what Huggins wanted him to do. And every year it seems that it's up to the upperclassmen on the team to explain to the younger guys that they will get PT if they do what they're told and not what they think is best.

Teddy Allen wasn't the only one. I remember Konate getting benched a number of times for taking too many shots from outside the paint.

B.S. Huggs is an ass and definitely not a great coach.


Huggins isn't perfect but let's not get carried away - most other coaches with this team wouldn't have taken them as far as Huggins did.

Is this the "let's start putting our thumb on the scale for Nova" period for the refs?

Should be interesting to see what Nova does coming out of the second half to better deal with the press...we've been successful taking them out of their game.

Great win.

I don't know if we can beat 'Nova but we will give them one heck of a game.

I'd love to take Teddy Allen's energy and put it in Ahmad's body.

I know the comparison isn't the greatest in terms of the two sports but Carter reminds me of what Pat White meant to WVU football in terms of effort and leadership and, on occasion, seeming to put the team on his back.

Bob needs to study K's films to get a clue how to move the players around and not have them bunch up and stand still while the handler JC tries to go inside against the bigs and force a shot. Just moronic playing. No sets from JC and he is the leader. K will always be better as we are too stupid to watch them and learn.


I'm not qualified to coach a bunch of grade school kids but I've wondered if part of the issue is that there is so much emphasis on playing with maximum effort on defense that the team just tends to recharge when they are on offense and don't move and cut as much as they need to. I don't know.

Unpopular opinion: Carter got bitchslapped the last 6 minutes. Again


Carter is obviously an outstanding defender but a good (not a great) point guard. Tonight wasn't the first night where he had turnovers or errant passes that cost us. Not saying he is to blame in any way...just pointing out a deficiency that he will have to work on if he's going to have an NBA career.

WVU didn't choke. They played well. Kansas just played better.


Yup....we lost to the better team that took care of business when they needed to.

I'm past moral victories, but I think we did well to make it to the finals by beating Texas Tech. We are a very good team but Kansas is a great team.

All things considered it was a good first half. Konate needs to avoid picking up that 3rd foul early if we are going to pull this one out.
