New Strength Coach

Except for Comcast sucking, this would have been posted Monday.

Assistant University of Notre Dame strength and conditioning coach, Mike Joseph, is WVU’s new strength and conditioning coach.

He comes to WVU having spent 4 years at ND.  He was a graduate assistant at WVU for 2 years (1999-2001), and is a graduate of Fairmont State.

Personally, I never trust a man with two first names.  But we’ll wait and see.

The Morning Shotgun/Throwdown (1/31/08)


Welcome, By-Godders, to the Thursday edition of The Morning Shotgun/Throwdown, presented to you by the Brick Brewing Company. It is amazing that they were also the sponsor of last nights game at the Coliseum.

All I can say is, shit happens, but we need to bounce back and steal two on the road against a decent Providence team and our rival Shit.

Insert Long, Long String Of Obscenities Here

This just about sums it up.

Well, tonight was certainly a huge pile of shit. I would much rather wax philosophical on something about greener grass and another hill, but I can’t. Or at least I won’t, mostly because I want to curl up in the fetal position.

Tonight’s game was one of the single worst efforts I have ever seen in my short 153 year history with Mountaineer basketball. Awful shooting, lax rebounding, almost zero effort on defense. Not to mention the fact that we couldn’t catch a break with the referees and every piece of junk Cincinnati threw up went in. Add all that up and you get a 62-39 home loss. Last time I checked, that’s not good.

Just how bad was it?

My Brand New House

The Mountaineers were nice enough to build it tonight with all the extra bricks they had lying around. Didn’t really take all that long, either. Went up in about 40 minutes.

Full recap to come, don’t go hanging yourself quite yet.

Tonight: Bob Huggins in Goldmember


The Seven Days of Signing Day

Note: Officially, our week-long signing day special, succinctly titled “Countdown To The 2008 WBGV Scintillating Succulent Signing Day Spectacular,” has begun. This is part 1 in a 7 part series.

OK, boys and girls, only a week left until signing day. Already, we’ve had quite a bit of action in the recruiting world. Below is the updated lists, as per WBGV’s official Signing Day Predictomatic 3000. Players in bold have moved up the list while players in italics have moved down. Players with neither bold nor italics could be dead.

It’s Hump Day: Nick Lachey’s Conquests Edition

OK, let’s see if you can follow my logic here.

Tonight, WVU plays Cincinnati. One of Cincinnati’s biggest fans is Nick Lachey. Despite his only real accomplishment being a part of a moderately successful boy-band, 98 Degrees, Nick Lachey has had incredible luck with the ladies. More specifically, he’s hollowed out both Jessica Simpson and Vanessa Minnillo.

And since it’s Hump Day (trademark pending), I figured why not use a terribly strained connection to post pictures of these two women. I think we can agree that I made the right choice.

The Morning Shotgun/Throwdown (1/30/08)

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Wednesday edition of The Morning Shotgun/Throwdown, presented by Stella Artois. Why Stella? Because it’s damn good, and even Mountaineer fans can’t drink Budweiser everyday. Plus, if you drink Stella, you’ll be puzzled enough to try to figure out what language they speak in Belgium.

(Note: The answer is at the end of the post — if you care, and I know you do.)

OK, enough tomfoolery, bring on the Throwdown!

Prelude To A Countdown: Signing Day 2008

Signing day is exactly 8 days away.

Officially, our week-long signing day special, succinctly titled “Countdown To The 2008 WBGV Scintillating Succulent Signing Day Spectacular,” will begin tomorrow. But today, we present to you a prelude to that countdown. A primer, if you will. That makes this “The Prelude To The Countdown To The 2008 WBGV Scintillating Succulent Signing Day Spectacular,” or TPTTCTT2008WBGVSSSDS for short.

Silver Bullet

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Tuesday edition of the Morning Shotgun/Throwdown brought to you by Coors Light.

I do not have any clever or funny shit to say here so I will do what any damn good comedian does and just curse a couple fucking times.

Mick the Prick

No heart, or stars at the ‘Shoe!
Maybe a win every blue moon!
No pots of gold and rainbows!
Just a traitorous coach who joined Pitino!

Wikipedia says that Mick, from the prefix “Mc”/”Mac” meaning “son of” that is commonly found in Irish surnames, is considered more offensive in the U.K. and U.S.

The always handy Racial Slur Database says that Mick is not as derogatory as “Paddy.”

The 25314 says that nothing can be as offensive as this Mick.

Wake Forest Quarterbacks Gone Wild


When you woke up this morning, you probably didn’t think to yourself, “man, I really hope I get to see Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner naked today.” And if you did, you’re 5th Year Senior. But I digress.

What follows is a slightly photoshopped version of Skinner’s self-portrait. When I say slightly photoshopped, I mean I have covered up his penis. Because c’mon, who wants a penis on their site? Not me — I’m all about the tits.

And by the way, if this is what former Wake QB coach and current WVU OC Jeff Mullen had to work with, he should do just fine with Pat White.

So, after the jump, nakedness (sans penis). Enjoy — or not.

Freshman To Take Smalligan’s Starting Position

MORGANTOWN — Mountaineer coach Bob Huggins today announced Jamie Smalligan, a season-long starter and often criticized for his poor play, has lost his starting center position.

Smalligan, once known as a three-point specialist, had been shooting 30.5% from the field and only 17.5% from beyond the arc. The move comes just two days removed from a Georgetown loss where Smalligan defended well but failed to record a rebound.

The Morning Shotgun/Throwdown (1/28/08)

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Monday edition of the Morning Shotgun/Throwdown, brought to you by Schlitz.

As you can see from the picture, Schlitz is the beer that made Milwaukee famous. Famous for what, you ask? Apparently, shitty beer. But whatever, it’ll get you fucked up. Then again, so will huffing paint. Not that I would know. Anyways…..

Now, on to the Shotgun/Throwdown…
