    Saw it. Sad ending to a sad story, leaving WVU was his biggest mistake ever. His career and WVU football have been a tragedy since he made that faithful decision

    With the allegations are AZ, even if there were a snowball's chance of any idiotic return, there's not now. Those that have defended his character, um, uh...
    "Rodriguez and his closest aides followed a "hideaway book" that detailed such sayings as "Title IX doesn't exist in our office." Those who had the most interaction with Rodriguez — the former employee and two assistant coaches — referred to themselves as the "Triangle of Secrecy."

    I don’t know, this is generally acceptable behavior in West Virginia these days. Heck WV women wear Grab em by the p@$$¥ shirts to Trump rallies.

    Rich Rod may end up here. It’s been done before - Petrino

    WVU has 9, 10+ win seasons in program history. Two of those seasons are post RR. Apparently, your definition of "tragedy" is different than mine.

    Untrue. We Ohio State fans loved Rodriguez' decision! RR caused a downward spiral in Ann Arbor from which Michigan hasn't recovered to this day.

    Maybe he is not talking about WVU's football success but just the tragedy of how things have worked our for RR and his family.

    Damn straight. Discontent and dysfunction surround the football program. Half the fans are ready to move on from Dana. You're probably too old to notice these things.

    You'll be fine. Your "Holgs" will be around for a long time. Too bad you won't enjoy basketball and other successful programs..

    What? Reading comprehension on this board is at an all-time low. The statement was this:
    WVU has 9, 10+ win seasons in program history. Two of those seasons are post RR. Apparently, your definition of "tragedy" is different than mine.

    There were 2 10 win seasons post-DRod: 2011 and 2016.
    That is true. He didn't bring up Holgorsen. Your hate for Holgorsen is blinding. Notwithstanding that, Holgorsen was coach in 2011 (10-3, Orange Bowl Champs) when we won 10 games. I'm not defending Holgs' current results, but to "not count" a coach's 10 win season because you say it was with "someone else's recruits", then you are the one who's FOS. He was the coach. We won 10 games. Fact.

    You have a lot more patience than I do. It's impossible to educate some of these clowns. Thanks for trying, though.

    Do you think Huggins is a great coach? Is WVU lucky to have Huggins?

    I think Huggs is a HOF coach and yes, WVU is lucky to have him.

    I see a lot of discussion on this forum about the performance of our football(Holgy) and basketball(Huggs) programs vs BXII competition. I prefer to deal in fact rather than opinion. I do not care to offer an opinion as to who the better coach is. Rather, I'll post some statistics and you can draw from them what you will.

    Since joining the BXII:

    Huggs - 51-39 vs. BXII (.764%). I didn't count any games from this season as it is a work in progress.
    Holgy - 27-27 vs. BXII (.500%). This season included.

    Huggs - Avg conference finish = 4.2
    Holgy - Avg conference finish = 4.6

    Since joining the BXII, Huggs has averaged 21.8 wins and 13.6 losses.

    Since joining the BXII, Holgy has averaged 7.16 wins and 5.16 losses.

    What in the world are you even talking about? I didn't even give an opinion.

    If someone continually made me look like a fool, I'd likely ignore them as well. Good riddance.
