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.

If we want to take our program to the next level we need to find three things in our next head coach. They are not easy to find but we don’t have to travel too far from home to find them.

In the biggest non-breaking news story ever, Terry Bowden has expressed his love for West Virginia University:
Bowden, who grew up in Morgantown when his father, Bobby, was Mountaineers coach and played at West Virginia, has been out of coaching since 1998. Not long after Rich Rodriguez left the Mountaineers to take the Michigan job, Bowden, the former Auburn coach, let it be known he’s interested in the West Virginia vacancy.
“I made a full commitment to get back into coaching almost two years ago. Coming home to West Virginia would obviously be the dream job for me,” Bowden, a college football analyst on radio and for Yahoo! Sports, said in a statement released by his publicist.
While this might be news to the rest of the country, WVU fans have known this for a few months now. Regardless of whether Terry Bowden gets the job or not, it’s refreshing to see someone so in love with their alma mater. Quite the change from our previous coach. I feel like we could offer Bowden $15,000/year and all the lollipops he could handle and he would still take the job.
Of course, that type of contract will still contain a $4 million buyout. You know, just in case.
