Wow. 48-28. You're telling me that West Virginia could put up 48 points on a neutral field against Oklahoma in a BCS Bowl game, but in a game at home against lowly Pittsburgh, they could only muster up 7 points, even with the help of the refs?
Regardless, the win was so incredible that the school is going to hire the interim coach, Bill Stewart, as its head coach for next season. I think the BCS game was an anomaly. Stewart's only head coaching job was at VMI, where he went 8-25 before being relieved of his duties. I expect more of the same. Try Louisville from last season to this season.
I guess all that talk of Nick Saban leaving can hush now.
Alabama assistant coach Ron Middleton, tight ends and special teams coach, is leaving to join David Cutcliffe's staff at Duke. He coached for Cutt at Ole Miss from '99-'03, so this was expected. It doesn't bother me that much because Middleton played at Auburn.
Wallace Gilberry, DJ Hall, and Simeon Castille have all been invited to play in the Senior Bowl in Mobile. This is a big deal, and I'm proud of these guys, as we all should be. Read more here.
Other than that, there's not much going on today. If you hear of anything interesting, hit me up! Roll Tide!
