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.

The Seven Days of Signing Day

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.
