Nothing To See Here, Please Disperse

We are well aware of the Noel Devine/Jock Sanders clusterfuck that is emerging out of Morgantown. Sure, we’ve been hearing a lot of different things, but it will be better for all involved if we just let this thing play out on its own.

So, if you’re looking for new information and/or opinion, today is not your day. Maybe tomorrow, but I doubt it.

  1. Spectacular…the “no comment” comment…beautiful!

  2. How typical of a Don Nehlen protege…….huh….3 players kicked off the team for trafficking/intent to deliver and now 2 future stars involved in a potential “clusterfuck”. I went to WVU and know how most of the football team behaves in the club scene….very arrogantly and as if they belong there more than the students who actually go there to represent the institution in an academic manner….Gotta problem w/ this post???? DONT RESPOND UNLESS YOU WENT TO MY SCHOOL!! That includes all WV rednecks who think that they are entitled to an opinion just because they LIVE in WV!

  3. Do you have multiple personalities because you were talking to yourself in that “comment?”

  4. Stew not responding to the call was because he was in Charleston all day doing fluff events at the State Capitol and then is traveling to New York this evening to accept the Lambert Trophy.

    You can expect a “comment” from the HCBS shortly.

    Last time I checked, I went to “your” school and you’re on my site. See how your was in quotations but my wasn’t? That means you don’t get to decide who is and who isn’t worthy of responding to your post. If the comment weren’t so blatantly stupid and fun to mock, I would delete it.

  6. Alum, satisfied columbus! However Columbus I welcome all the people in the state to comment (except maybe cabell county residents, and all other MU pricks).

    All cfb players are arrogant in school and in the club scene. You should go out in columbus and see those fucking clowns.

    You can’t keep your hand on all the roster. But the coaches need to have gps devices attached to all starting and impact players.

    And Columbus! Watch your fucking mouth when you talk about my people from West By God Virginia! Being born there is more important to me then having a BS and 28 years of season tickets.

    Pride is what makes us strong!

  7. Your damn right it’s MY school. Sounds like it’s your school too if you went to WVU. Not concerned about this story? Really? Let me guess? Let’s act like this didn’t really happen, “sort out all the facts” and blah, blah, blah, blah……right? After all these are 2 studs…..not 3 reserves busted for intent to deliver.

  8. What I’m saying is that if this indeed happened, in order for Stewart to keep an ounce of integrity, you fit the punishment to the crime………at minimum, suspension

  9. If one can’t see the differences between this “story” and the players that were ousted, they should respond to any posts from here on out.

  10. sorry: they should NOT respond to any posts from here on out.
    My bad…

  11. Notice how neither of the guys interviewed claimed that Devine or Sanders actually hit them. Just that they were involved. Could have been that they were there and their friends started talking crap and neither actually hit anyone. If I were punished for what my friends did and/or who they beat up while I was in their presence, then I would have been punished a lot. Unless it is proven that Devine or Sanders actually hit someone then this is nothing. Doesnt even sound like it is even alleged that they hit someone.

  12. Agreed beerparade! Speculation is all we have right now.

    Columbus,

    What are you saying? Suspensions without trial? Accusations dude! If the shit hits the fan, than you’ll have my apologies. But if this kid throws the big names in this allegation to grab attention, than he needs to be prosecuted! I just think this whole incident will get spun until someone in the MPD makes a statement!

    And bet your ass that the Shitzburgh Gazzette has already made the call to ESPN. Mother Fucking Whores!

  13. I was only at WVU for a year and a half before I had to move back home for family reasons – of course, I was also born and raised here, resident of the state long before I made my college choice…I think that they cancel each other out and I shouldn’t leave a comment at all. hmm.

    But back to the point – sorting out the facts really isn’t a bad idea, Colubus. You know, the whole “innocent before proven guilty” thing. I could be be wrong though…after all, I am just a “WV redneck”

  14. The Shitzburgh Gazette? The PPG gives much better coverage of WVU sports than either the Morgantown, Wheeling or Charleston newspapers. (Charleston Daily Mail is 2nd) What do you mean “making the call” to ESPN? I have ALWAYS gone to the WVU section of the PPG for up to the minute updates on the RRod story. Chuck Finder has numerous sources within the athletic dept. that have proved to be very reliable. Oh and another thing, what was the media source that unveiled the fraudulent degree given to the governor’s daughter???? That’s right, the Post-Gazette. I applaud them for that, not admonish them.

    Of course my conclusions are w/ the presumption that the 2 studs are guilty. And if WVU has to take disciplinary action against the #1 and #2 RB, #1 WR (Sanders) and 2 steady defensive players within 2 months of hiring a new coach, then what does that say about the new coach and more importantly, the athletic administration that hired a clearly nice man that is in over his head?

  15. I’m a native West Virginian. I even hunt, fish and hike in beautiful eastern mountains of West Virginia. I’m not a redneck. You probably aren’t as well. However, if you beat your wife, spend more time at the Dollar store than you should or do meth or know of a meth dealer…..then you are a redneck…..That’s who I was referring to when I made the original post. If you don’t do any of those things, my apologies……I am tired of seeing my university get its face rubbed in the mud by regional and national media outlets, and these are the sorts of stories that bring it to the forefront.

  16. WVUincolumbus, you just said that you use the PPG to get information about the mountaineers. You should no longer be allowed to breath air in the state of wv.

    Accordingly, why on earth woudl you presume that these two are guilty? Both have been awsome members of the team, helping with recriuting and not getting into ANY troiuble before this. If anything we should presume innocence in these two cases because, these are two of the better kids on the team.

    So, as a final thought, YOU SUCK.

  17. I went to WVU, and live in Morgantown, so am I allowed to respond? Pretty please?

    And you know what’s worse than the arrogant football players at the bar? The elitist out-of-staters with a false sense of superiority and entitlement.

    I know alot of good people who get a little rowdy downtown sometimes and talk trash, maybe even thow a punch. I don’t know alot of people who have been charged with the felony of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver.

    Chuck Finder has NO sources inside the AD. What he has is Mike Brown. That’s it. And now that Rich Rod is out of the news, he’s never going to have a scoop about WVU again, because no one in the AD will speak with him.

  18. chucktownzub-The PPG is a regional newspaper w/ numerous subscribers from the northern panhandle. Weirton and Wheeling are essentially suburbs of Pittsburgh (hell Mo-town too for that matter). Just because WVU’s arch rival is PITT doesn’t mean that you can’t read Pittsburgh coverage of WVU sports….Pittsburgh is a rather large city, relative to WV, w/ many WVU fans and thus the coverage of WVU sports. Moreover, Fox Sports Pittsburgh covers WVU sports as well including a football weekly highlight show. Although I HATE PITT, I breathe Steelers, Pirates and Penguins…..As a final thought, YOU SUCK!

  19. 25134-I am clearly missing why all is upset w/ him? What did he do? Write something that Mike Brown told him? He was reporting that clearly ridiculous side of the story from Rodriguez…I don’t remember anything else.

  20. I completely understand what the PPG is, they are just UNBELEIVABLY negative towards wvu sports, and if you dont know that, you are either blind or retarded. But thank you for the elementary school lesson on what news papers are, I hadnt figured that out…. Also, there is a thing called the INTERNET! WEEE its fun, and with this new fangled thingy (al gore invention) you can get your steelers, pireates and penguins news from the PPG and then, VIOLA, like magic, go to a different site to get some positive wvu news.

    Finally, nice come back with the you suck…i cant even respont to creativity like that. Are you sure it wasnt WV Junior college you went to in morgantown?? It is a public college in morgantown, their graduates sometimes get confused.

  21. “And if WVU has to take disciplinary action against the #1 and #2 RB, #1 WR (Sanders) and 2 steady defensive players within 2 months of hiring a new coach, then what does that say about the new coach and more importantly, the athletic administration that hired a clearly nice man that is in over his head?”

    I didn’t know Ken Kendrick moved to Columbus.

    The reflection on the coach is how the coach handles incidents like this – not that they happen in the first place. Name a successful football program and I’ll dig up some dirt on their players – these things happen. Stew handled the ARRESTED DRUG DEALERS swiftly and severely. He will handle the ACCUSED BATTERERS (yes, that’s a word) accordingly when the facts come out. But the bottom line is, these are two different scenarios.

  22. I don’t even know how to respond to that spelling challenged, dangling participle ridden post, chuck. Let me ask you this. Do you think hiring Bill Stewart was a good move? And please don’t base your decision on one exhibition game.

  23. Columbus has convinced me. Obviously, the fact that he/she claims to have observed some long-gone football players behaving poorly on the club scene once upon a time means beyond a doubt that these two guys are guilty of, well, whatever it is they apparently have yet to be charged with. So let’s jump to conclusions before the police do, and by all means let’s post all sorts of unsubstantiated stuff on the internet. After all, isn’t that a big part of what’s helped make the last couple months such a high water mark in WVU history?

    Here’s my contribution: I heard that as soon as Stew got the job, Mike Dent became a wiccan, Dorrell Jalloh decided to start eating babies, and Franchot “Boogie” Allen changed is name to Aziz al-Salaam and is heading up an al-Queda sleeper cell. Those lucky football players. If only I’d had “a nice man that is in over his head” as a coach, I’d have gotten the chance to be the criminal deviant that I was born to be.

    Any yes, it is typical of a Don Nehlen protege (protege being defined as an assistant coach with a long pre-WVU career who was brought on board in the year of Nehlen’s retirement and ended up coaching about 6 or 7 times longer under RR) to have 3 players caught possessing and/or trafficking drugs and then a few days later have 2 more accused of hazy involvement in a bar fight. I have no idea what C’s even trying to get across there, but I am under a spell and am buying whatever’s being sold.

    And no, rednecks living in WV who did not attend WVU have no right to an opinion. I’m pretty sure that’s in the Constitution. It makes no diff that WVU is a state institution that receives taxpayer dollars.

    Really, the only problem I have with C’s brilliant post is the phrase “gotta problem.” Everybody knows “gotta” is equivalent to “got to” as in “have to” or “must.” C’s using it in place of “got a.” I take back all my praise. What a maroon.

  24. Columbus,

    I live in Cincy and enjoy watching the newscast of greyhound bus pick all the homeless people up here and send them back to Columbus. Your resident town should do the same by sending them back to Detroit.

    First-off your not going to find too much retardness on this site (outsides of drunking rages after loses). Nor should you throw the redneck label as easily as you do. WBVG has typically had knowledgeable people with great inside info (the nick saban day doesn’t count). I work in Cincy because there isn’t very many JOBS! I hate the fucking people here and despise OSU more than any other athletic organization in the world (that is until Fraud made them 2nd). The arrogance in Ohio could have brain washed you into making these irrational statements.

    OK! Sorry about the bio, I just wanted to make sure that I meet up to your quality of fan. But I must respond to the following:

    “Although I HATE PITT, I breathe Steelers, Pirates and Penguins…..As a final thought, YOU SUCK!”

    I have now lost all credibility in your comments. Thanks and goodnight!

  25. Ken Kendrick is a native WV who clearly has his shit together. He is successful and operates a MLB franchise. I clearly respect the opine of an individual w/ that pedigree. I completely agreed w/ his response to the Stewart hire….He was 100% right! (and 100% wrong on wanting to keep RRod though)

  26. “Ken Kendrick is a native WV who clearly has his shit together. He is successful and operates a MLB franchise. I clearly respect the opine of an individual w/ that pedigree.

    He has taken his contributions away from the university. SO FUCK HIM, and his shit don’t stink pedigree.

  27. glibglub-Nice post!!! Cincy-the Buckeyes suck!!! I hate Slohio State!!!!! O-H-N-O, O-H-N-O

  28. “He has taken his contributions away from the u. So FUCK HIM and his shit don’t stink pedigree”.

    It is exactly these types of posters that give WV a bad name. Why doesn’t his shit stink Nasty? Because he is successful? Let me guess…everybody else who is successful and left the state is conceited as well, right?

  29. Gotta love WBGV. Friday it turns into a Dwight Yoakam fan club message board, and today it’s a referendum on the state of Ohio and what credentials you need to be a Mountaineer fan. Tomorrow…..we’ll be dealing with fat chicks. So buckle up and be ready.

  30. Actually, tomorrow’s hump day, and I have a strict “no fat chicks” policy. Says so right there on my 1987 Ford Ranger bumper.

  31. This is a messege board, not graded for grammer last time i checked. Also… did you just call the Fiesta bowl win, an exhibition game?

    And to tell you the truth, i was sceptical of the hiring at first, but he has grown on me, and i am now completely confident in his abilities. How are you thinking your buckeyes are going to do this year?

  32. Man, my post was completely satiric. Maybe I should’ve labeled it as such. Apparently I was too subtle.

    My unvarnished opinion is that’s it’s way too early to say what Stew (who was an unlikely HC hire, but who I do not think is in over his head, and who I do not see as a Nehlen protege) should do about Noel and Jock, because no one has established exactly what, if anything in the way of a misdemeanor or felony, they did. I also think it’s great for anyone interested in WVU sports to comment on this blog. Their WV tax dollars, the licensing fees from WVU merchandise they buy, and revenue from tickets they buy and programming they consume, all help support the university. I believe the purpose of the university is to enrich the state, nation, and world (I can’t believe I just typed that), and not to be the private preserve of self-satisfied alums. And I think Ken Kendrick is a megolomaniacal egoist and slavish RR apologist who would like nothing better than to dictate how the Athletic Dept. is run – wouldn’t we all – and who showed his true colors by making inflammatory public comments about WVU at a time when the flames really didn’t need to be fanned any further, because after all, RR was gone and HCBS had been handed the keys. Mr. Kendrick’s wealth and success in professional sports in and of themselves do not make him infallible or even necessarily admirable.

    That’s enough of all this. As I sit here typing, American Idol has come on and I haven’t even managed to change channels after several minutes! Argh! My eyes! My eyes!

  33. I almost pee’d my pants reading all these posts. Great job everyone even you WVUCbus. Even if you are back asswards on some of your points you did drop some knowledge on us. Granted, it was knowledge only Mike Brown, Ken Kendrick or Fraud would drop in a WVU forum but it is still knowledge.

    Bill Stewart was the right hire, this a situation in which more information is needed and if you think the Fiesta Bowl was an exhibition game you need a shoe thrown at you. If we would’ve lost that game and HCBS would’ve still been hired you would throw that game out as a reason he doesn’t deserve the job.

    OK, my doctor said to watch my blood pressure so I’m going to end by reminding glib that Tito Gonzalez is also going to be taking over as the next dictator of Cuba.

  34. “He has taken his contributions away from the u. So FUCK HIM and his shit don’t stink pedigree”.

    It is exactly these types of posters that give WV a bad name. Why doesn’t his shit stink Nasty? Because he is successful? Let me guess…everybody else who is successful and left the state is conceited as well, right?

    No it just means Fuck him (he has abandoned the university) and his shit don’t stink pedigree (refferring to your kiss ass comments for him).

    Dude, I don’t care anymore. You are the superior Ohio resident that loves WVU more than me. Your superior education (which we share form the same institute) has busted through me like a schmitty face mask.

    “It is exactly these types of posters that give WV a bad name.”
    And I’m sorry that I have given WV a bad name on a exclusive WV site.

    GO EERS and FREE NOEL (if needed)!

  35. And for once I was good all day. 🙂

    I hope this turns out to be just a rumor and we don’t lose these two players. There’s a big difference between a complaint to the police and the police catching someone red-handed.

  36. BTW, good blog site…well done!

  37. Nasty Nati, I think FREE NOEL would make an amazing shirt if the time ever comes that it is needed. ha. Whether he is guilty or not, I would probably buy it and wear it proudly, just because I can.

  38. I just wanted to mention that as a WV tax payer…WVU is my school too, even though I wouldn’t let my kids anywhere near that God-forsaken-hell-hole. The notion that my dime got those punks into the skanky-ville known as club-z is actually slightly gut-wrenching…but I’ll get over it.

  39. First of all, judging from the Charleston Gazette article, I get the impression that the students may have been more responsible for the fight than Sanders or Devine.

    OK, so a fight broke out? Who’s not to say that thing got to a point where Noel and Jock had to defend themselves? I don’t condone athletes fighting students, but something ain’t stirring the Kool Aid from what I’ve been reading?

    Second of all, why did the bouncers just let the fight escalate outside? Why didn’t they try to stop it? Oh yeah, I forgot, Club Z owner Mohamed and his guido bouncers encourage fighting so they can rough people up and throw them out. I’ve been to that place, when it was called Phantoms, and although I had great times there(anyone remember .25 cent pitcher night?); there was a pretty shady crowd there.

    The two students story even sounds like B.S. I don’t know, this sounds like a bunch of guys who drank till they had beer muscles and then possibly picked a fight with the wrong guys. If that’s the case, I have no problem with Noel or Jock having to defend themselves like I said.

    Hopefully nothing comes of this.

  40. Count me in with a FREE NOEL t-shirt, e-mail me if that’s the case.

  41. Friend told me he looked up “the supposed victims” facebook page and it says “Noel you are going down” or something to that effect. This tells me that this guy is an obvious attention whore and anything he says should be seriously scrutinized because of his ulterior motives.

  42. Tilda,

    I’m not totally sure if you are talking about WVU or Club Z with your “God-forsaken-hell-hole” comment but if you are talking about WVU and your tax dollars you should really take a look at this article.

    http://www.wvgazette.com/News/Business/200802190618

    Those figures do not lead me to the conclusion that WVU is a god-forsaken-hell-hole.

  43. If this study would’ve been done about Marshall you would see figures showing that for every $5 in tax spent on Marshall the state gets a box of Jell-O pudding in return.

    2 + 2 = Jell-O

  44. i love charley west!

  45. That’s awfully kind of you. I do, however, charge by the hour if you want me to love you back.

  46. Charley, honey, that’s not what we meant when we told you to get a real job. . .
