    I know that everyone has a right to voice their opinion, but the WVU website is always so negative about everything. I wonder why anyone would want to come to Morgantown to be an athletic director, coach, or player. Let's face it, Morgantown is not a prime destination, but some must think it's the best of the best.

    Remember when WVU fans were bashing a coach named Bowden at WVU until they ran him out of the state and look what he did. Give the man a chance. He has only been the head coach for two years.

      Bowden went where there was talent, Florida. Being close to home and national TV helps. Someone told me talent helps win games.

    Rob T. You are the man!

    Jock. You're out of control. :)

      Yeah I probably need learn to ignore the dumb comments, take a deep breath and relax. Just get fired up about the old Mountaineers and get carried away time to time.

        Love the enthusiasm, and I like where your head's at!

    holgy is dumb

    • Jock Strap

      Yeah that's why he makes 2.5 million a year and you can't spell his name. It's Holgorsen.

    Deforest

    I think Holgorsen just can't see the trees for Def

  • thornton

    Who?

  • Doug

    It doesn't matter what he Carswell did, Doc Holiday has already made an offer.

  • big tom

    I think dana is afraid of deforest,,,, maybe dana was in some messes with deforest,,, something very serious maybe, enough to get both fired,,, if only.

    something just isn't exactly right between these two,, I saw deforest hugging dana after the win,,,, just not right,,,, where there's smoke there's fire.

    • Mister Man

      Of course Dana is scared of Deforest. Because it has lions and tigers and bears, oh my.

  • Rob T.

    Let's keep moving forward boys. You don't believe? Get off the bus. Just support the flying Wv

    On a different note, I see Oliver Luck is still with us. I am sure he is disappointed or should I say, his wife is disappointed. Rubbing shoulders with the local social elite at Crockett's Lounge probably isn't so appealing compared to living in the United States of Texas. But, I am pleased that Oliver is still with us and hope he will stay and finish up on his promise to bring a National Championship, now that is a challenge if ever there was one.

    Either Holgorsen is one of the most loyal friends any failure of a human being could want or DeForest has something on him. He is the worst of a very poor coaching staff. Holgorsen could regain a sliver of respect from the fan base if he offered up DeForest as a sacrificial lamb. Might be symbolic, but would soothe some mighty irritated supporters.

      They owe him big money if they fire him. That is why he is still here.

    • Big Larry

      Sometimes it looks as though DeForest is calling the shots...and maybe he is...

    Speaking of Holgerson and DeForest being buddy buddy, I found it strange at the end of the game DeForest, now a special teams coach, probably the highest paid special teams coach in division 2a ball, was hanging around with coach Holgerson and not Patterson. And, when WVU subsequently won, they (Holgerson and DeForest) gave each other a man hug and man smile. Didn't seethe defensive coach anywhere in sight.

    • GrandWVUFan

      DeForest is "Assistant Head Coach" and "Special Teams Coordinator" ... and who really cares?

    • jake_d

      I'm not a holgy or deforest fan but why was it strange. they go way back and both are under continuous fire from fans - why wouldn't they celebrate. special teams were on the field at the end btw so if joe isn't next to dana then some fans would probably question why they're arent together communicating. is patterson even on the side line? not sure i follow you.

    who said this was weed? It is crazy for NCAA to suspend a player for marijuana in 2013

    • Brian

      NCAA doesn't suspend players for weed; schools do.
