Bowlsby: TCU, West Virginia have had moments in difficult transition

ARLINGTON, Texas -- TCU won the Rose Bowl to close its 2010 season. West Virginia capped its 2011 campaign with an Orange Bowl rout and landed in the preseason top 10 for its inaugural Big 12 season.

Shell quietly runs new objective at West Virginia

It has been 11 months since Rushel Shell left Pitt's spring camp and seven months since he transferred across the Backyard Brawl battlefront to West Virginia, but Shell has yet to speak publicly on either event.

Reporter falls into river in West Virginia where chemical spill took place

WCHS reporter Bob Aaron is probably still washing himself off in the shower. Aaron fell into the Fields Creek in West Virginia. No big deal you say? The creek has been blackened due to a 100,000 gallon leak of coal slurry.

Is It Time For WVU to Part Ways with Holgorsen?

If you have ever heard Tony Caridi call a West Virginia game, you’ve probably heard him say, “It’s a great day to be a Mountaineer.” On Saturday, Caridi should have said, “It’s an embarrassing day to be a Mountaineer.” WVU football, once the pride of the Big East and a tough opponent in BCS Bowl games, went to Lawrence, Kan., and allowed the Jayhawks to snap...

West Virginia baseball pitches in to aid Oklahoma tornado relief

OKLAHOMA CITY Brady Wilson and his West Virginia teammates have been in Oklahoma so long it only makes sense that they started acting like the locals. This is Oklahoma where disaster seems to happen, not as often as the sweeping winds come through, but often enough that people who are from here, live here and know the area, react accordingly. So it only made sense Wilson and his...
