Rodriguez To Stay At West Virginia - Sports West Virginia football coach Rich Rodriguez held a press conference Friday to confirm that he has turned down an offer to coach at Alabama and will remain with the Mountaineers.Roll, Tide, Roll -- except over them thar hills of West Virginia.
There was speculation that Rodriguez would accept Alabama's reported six-year contract offer, but that ultimately proved inaccurate.
'I fully respect his decision and wish him the best,' said Alabama athletic director Mal Moore in a statement. 'I want to remind everyone of what I said at the outset of this process: my only objective is to get the best person available to lead the Alabama football program.'
I really think Pitt should play its spring game at Cupples Stadium on the South Side. That will be the team's next game. If that news was made public on the morning of the Gator Bowl, we could have a huddle around 10th Street and set fire to a couch or two to psych up for the Blue-Gold game.
You never know, a real 'Festivus Party' might ensue too. Festivus, the holiday for the rest of us.
