A Little Luck for a National Championship?

West Virginia University announced the hiring of it's new Athletic Director today:  Oliver Luck.

A former QB at WVU and 2nd round draft pick (to the Houston Oilers in 1982), Oliver Luck returns to head WVU Athletics.

I, for one, could not be happier.  The quote "once a Mountaineer, always a Mountaineer" is clearly true in this instance.  And with all of the conference shake-ups happening (or imminent), I sure am glad it seems like WVU is planning ahead and not waiting until the last minute.

Not only does WVU have a new AD, we've also had a new President for a few months now.  My hope of this new President was that he hire a new AD who was National Championship minded.  Who wouldn't settle for just a winning season and a bowl trip.  My first impression is that our new AD is absolutely National Championship minded.

So, as Tony Caridi says, "It's a great day to be a Mountaineer, wherever you may be!"

  1. UT messed up by hiring an "outsider" as a head coach last year. A lot of things came out after he left...things that he did that went against UT's tradition. We were used as a stepping stone..but, it looks like he's reaping what he sowed!
