    can anything suck worse for a Mountaineer fan lately? WTF. Don't coaches stay anywhere anymore? He will join Saban as my most hated coaches.

    Mounteer basketball is looking good early season, however.

    Good riddance I say. I don't want this "I love WVU but let me keep visiting other schools every now and again" crap all the time.

    There is bigger news to this.

    Terrel Pryor - nations #1 QB prospect is now on Michigans list. He runs the spread. He called up Rivals this morning and told them to add Michigan to his list. He had a talk with Rich, and they want to go together to Michigan to create something special. It's still early, and nothing has bee signed but this could be borderline larger than Rich getting the job.

    You have a point, but Michigan is as depressing as it gets with all the unemployment and foreclosures and property value losses. At least he can take his big salary and buy an entire neighborhood.

    You may get 2-1 on a moneyline shot. I would bet WV without points. Coach bailing or not they can still win this game at least 4 times out of 10. The players still want to win.

    when a coach bails on the team it usually doesn't mean good things for that team in their bowl game. I believe its something like 10 losses out of the last 12 games where a coach has left for another job.

    Do you expect the number to move higher than 7? IF so I still see value in the moneyline. Tough call considering WV's last game, but they have played well in Bowls as of late

    ya I really don't have an opinion on the game. At least not yet. Just pointing out that it's usually not a good sign when a coach leaves. I really don't know how I feel as a Michigan fan. I really don't like the offense he runs but maybe the change will be good.

    I'll give Rich this: at least he had the balls to personally tell the WVU players insted of putting a note in their lockers like Petrino did.

    the parts of Michigan he will be living is top notch, just ask some of the Michigan posters here. The suburbs around Ann Arbor are real real nice. Everytiime the Tigers bring a free agent here they are stunned how nice it is in the suburbs. I would have to think it is as good a place to live as WV.

    It is a very nice area. When Miles was supposeddly going everybody said that Baton Rouge is better than Ann Arbor and that is just crazy. Just look at the crime rates between the 2. There hasn't been a murder in Ann Arbor in 2 years. Very good schools to. The only disadvantage is its cold. But I would almost rather be cold than be in Florida in August when its 100 degrees with 95% humidity.

    He can offer $250K houses to recruits families for $20K. That is the going rate right?

    I have always lived in or near big cities. Many times for me it is not a suprise when coaches leave certain places. However, I would find it very difficult to leave ATL for Arkansas, like Petrino or other places where some of these teams are.

    As a fan of the Big 10. I still don't get how a guy like Rich is going to make them that much better. The team needs to be completely gutted offensively. Also, I think this will hurt Michigan. Michigan has always gotten players from all over. No more Amani Toomer's from CA or Ryan Mallet's from Texas. Yes, Pat White is a great College player, but players go to UM to go pro. I just don't see offensive players having the same ability to do that now. Also, in the Big East he has the best teams and could easily dominate and have shots at a national title.

    Don't fool yourselves - just because Michigan has been "down" lately, their program as a whole is light years ahead of WVU.

    Just goes to show that WVU isn't an elite program, just a stepping stone coaches can use to get to the next level of schools. Anyway, funny as hell to see Michigan just hire away coaches at will from WVU.
