A year ago today, Oliver Luck was named the new Athletic Director at WVU. I was happy then, and I'm still happy today.
I am also interested to see how the next few weeks play out.
To say there has been drama surrounding the WVU Football program is a bit of an understatement. The allegations have been flying and the national media has even picked up on it. And how it all plays out remains to be seen.
The big questions, or rather those with the biggest implications, right now are:
Will Bill Stewart still be the Head Coach this season?
Will Dana Holgorsen get to coach even one snap as Offensive Coordinator? Or will he be promoted to Head Coach a year earlier? Or will he find himself job hunting?
There are plenty of other questions out there - who knew what when and who did they tell? basically sums it up.
Many people are calling for AD Luck to make a quick decision to 'move on', but I like his taking it slow attitude. He seems to be looking for all of the answers in an effort to end this drama once and for all.
One thing I do know, is that I was hoping WVU would be in the news this offseason for things like 'promising new OC' and 'Geno Smith recovering nicely from 3rd foot surgery in as many years.' But instead, there is grown-up drama.
The one thing I can say for sure is that I truly hope that rumors about a return of a certain coach who shall remain nameless, are just that. Rumors. While I'm the first to admit, I wish he'd never left he did leave. And if we are trying to reduce drama and focus on football, well then let's do just that.
Let's go Mountaineers!
