Rich Rodriguez who? The interim now turned head coach of west Virginia Bill Stewart has the gig. Last night in the fiesta bowl he put on a display, winning display, kinda like what Rich Rod. couldn't do against Pittsburgh. In WVU 48-28 win over Oklahoma they did exactly what they were supposed to do. They ran wild, played solid defense and scored...at will. I have to give it to Stewart, he came in and took over a team in turmoil after the loss of the coach and trip to BCS championship game and he kept their poise. He seems to be the right fit for the team. There was no reason to go after a high profile over-rated name like Nick Saban that probably would make the team go 7-6 next year. Stewart has been there for years and knows how to coach them. As a USF fan, I am nervous now because he is going to get the key players back next season. I tip my hat to you sir.
I don't know if he could play some basketball but at the rate he is going, he will be 10 ft tall in high school and will only need to drop the ball into the hoop with his teeth for a dunk. Simple game plans here, just give me the damn ball!! Since he is 12, can you imagine the rec games he could dominate with the other 4 ft tall kids his age. They would be Chris Russell like Rec Center numbers.

I know it has been way too long since I have done a post. Let me give you a recap of whats been going on. I left Friday night to head to Tampa for the Bowl game. Saturday morning we flew out to El Paso. After Oregon kicked our ass, we headed to Vegas then home. I am now fully back in the eastern time zone, for a while I was all messed up because I was in 4 time zones in 1 day! The game was disappointing for a USF fan. The time we spent there was fun but just with the team would have played a little better. It happens, layoffs suck. To the seniors on our team we are really going to miss you especially Mike Jenkins, Trae Williams, and Ben Moffitt. Good luck in the NFL guys. I stumbled across this song on my plane ride home and it seemed to fit well with the times. This is my dedication to the USF nation and Leavitt Town. We will be back again...don't worry. We have come a long way in our very short existence.
