WEST VIRGINIA RUMORS

NCB 2015 CFB Previews: West Virginia Mountaineers

West Virginia recovered from 2007, and now has to recover from 2012. The 2012 Geno Smith-led Mountaineers were supposed to ride the momentum of a 70-33 thrashing of Clemson into the Big 12, but the offense wrote checks the defense couldn’t cash and West Virginia tumbled to a 7-6 record. BEST AGAINST BEST 2014 West [&hellip The post NCB 2015 CFB Previews: West Virginia Mountaineers...

Holgorsen has great tweet about resuming Backyard Brawl

The “Backyard Brawl” hasn’t taken place in three seasons, but that doesn’t mean the rivalry has diminished. Pittsburgh and West Virginia fans are not fond of one another and apparently neither are the coaches. It all started with Mountaineers head coach Dana Holgorsen making the comment “we’re begging to play Pitt.” Panthers head coach Pat Narduzzi took his turn...

West Virginia’s Dana Holgorsen Had An Awesome Tweet About Resuming The Backyard Brawl Against Pitt

The “Backyard Brawl” between West Virginia and Pitt was one of the more entertaining rivalries in college football for decades. But since the Mountaineers left the old Big East and joined the Big 12, the two teams haven’t met.  As it stands, 2015 will be the fourth-straight season WVU and Pittsburgh won’t play each other, but there’s been a lot of chatter about resuming...

Video: Dana Holgorsen double-fists free Red Bull

If you asked me who Dana Holgorsen was, I would be able to tell you that he is the head football coach at West Virginia. Most people don’t think just that makes an impression on people. So, what if I told you Dana Holgorsen was the 44-year-old coach who claims he drinks over 1,000 Red Bulls in one football season? Yeah, now I have your attention. Holgorsen has made it very clear...

Dana Holgorsen had best quote of Big 12 Media Days

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen was one of the instrumental pieces of Texas Tech’s myriad of successful seasons in the early 2000’s. He was under the tutelage of then head coach and Air Raid offense mastermind Mike Leach. Lincoln Riley played quarterback under Leach and Holgorsen in 2002 and then coached alongside them from 2003-2009. Apparently, Holgorsen and Riley never...

West Virginia Football: Dana Holgorsen Had The Best Quote Of College Football Media Days About New Oklahoma Offensive Coordinator Lincoln Riley

Like new Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley, West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen is a disciple of Air Raid offense guru Mike Leach. Holgorsen served on Leach’s staff at Texas Tech as a wide receiver coach and offensive coordinator from 2000-2007, while Riley played on the 2002 Red Raiders as a walk-on quarterback, and served on the coaching staff from 2003-2009.

Morgantown Bans Outdoor Furniture in Hopes of Curbing Couch Burning

The art of couch burning is not something done only in Morgantown, West Virginia, the home of the West Virginia Mountaineers, but the act is not identified with the culture of any other school quite like it is for the Mountaineers. Win or lose, if the game was a big one there is a good chance that during the night there will be some furniture burning somewhere in town after the game...

Twitter/@dmilesjr4 As we all witnessed Thursday night, the West Virginia Mountaineers were no match for the Kentucky Wildcats.

Bob Huggins’ Daughters Tweeted Some Pretty Despicable Rape Jokes About Maryland’s Dez Wells Sunday Night

Maryland and West Virginia rarely play each other in basketball, so there isn’t much of a rivalry between the two programs that border each other.  After Sunday night’s NCAA Tournament Third Round game, though, maybe one is going to heat up. The No. 5-seeded Mountaineers defeated the No. 4-seeded Terrapins in a contest in Columbus that featured a lot of trash talking and some...

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins is no fan of Doug Gottlieb and Seth Davis

If you’re following the NCAA Tournament, then you know that West Virginia advanced to the Round of 32 with a win over Buffalo on Friday.
