Introducing DARN IT…

Darn It!

Well folks our December just keeps getting worse and worse. We just got thrown under the bus again and we didn’t see this one coming either. It all appeared to be ironed out but something went down to keep Jimbo at FSU, probably BB. Both ESPN and the FSU official site are reporting Jimbo is staying at FSU. All I can say is good luck to Jimbo at FSU and to the WVU Athletic Department.

Our AD needs to finish this before Christmas to keep WVU fans happy. We can’t take much more of getting our hopes up only to have them dashed by more bad news.

Holding Pattern

That’s the only way I can describe what is currently going on.

We can confirm that an offer has been made. Now, it is up to Jimbo Fisher and his family to make a decision whether to leave FSU and accept the West Virginia job.

My sources are still confident that an announcement will be made tonight and a press conference held tomorrow. Of course, that ultimately depends on if Fisher accepts the job or not. But those same sources, seeing as how they believe a press conference will be held tomorrow, are confident he will accept.

IF an announcement is not made, the holding pattern could continue indefinitely. Between Christmas, the team leaving for Phoenix, New Year’s Day, and the Fiesta Bowl, if a decision is not made today we may see this stretch for at least another week, possibly more.

So, in the meantime, my advice to you is this: sit tight, stay tuned to WBGV, and relax.

The List = Jimbo Fisher

(***Latest Update: 4:30 PM***)

Our list of candidates has been trimmed to just one name: Jimbo Fisher.

Fisher, today, was to meet with Bobby Bowden and inform him of his decision to leave Florida State. Of course, according to my sources, saying “no” to Bobby Bowden is easier said than done. Florida State’s hope of keeping Fisher rests on Bowden talking him out of leaving. If that does not happen, look for word to leak later today that Fisher is the next head coach at West Virginia.

UPDATE #1: If Fisher were to ultimately stay at FSU, the backup plan no longer includes Doc Holliday. Reaction to Holliday’s hiring was so negative among boosters at all levels that he has been essentially eliminated from contention. After Fisher, the clear #2 is Terry Bowden. That fact makes the sit-down between Fisher and Bobby Bowden that much more interesting.

UPDATE #2: The Palm Beach Post is reporting that Jimbo Fisher has officially been offered the job at West Virginia.


Stay tuned…

Discussions (Still) Ongoing With Jimbo Fisher


(***Latest update found here***)

According to separate sources close to the Board of Governors and Governor’s Office, Jimbo Fisher, heir-definite to the Florida State throne, is in discussions with those representing the interests of West Virginia University. Fisher’s newly signed contract at FSU stipulates that he not have any direct contact with WVU, hence the “those representing the interests” portion of the previous statement. Fisher is very interested in the vacant WVU job.
