More sexy

This top 100 sexiest in college hoops thing has some legs — see what I did there? — and I fear we’re one slow news day away from a MOUNT RUSHMORE of sexy discussion dominating our news feeds. Anyhow, someone from here was going to go there and the smart money was Hertz wresting the baton and running with it.


So here is my choice of the 15 sexiest athletes at WVU since 2000.

No. 1 – Joe Alexander, basketball
No. 2 – Pat White, Football
No. 3 – Vanessa House, women’s basketball
No. 4 – Rasheed Marshall, football
No. 5 – Grant Wiley, football
No. 6 – Wellington Smith, basketball
No. 7 – Meg Bulger, women’s basketball
No. 8 – Tavon Austin, football
No. 9 – Da’Sean Butler, basketball
No. 10 – Brian King, football
No. 11 – Johannes Herber, basketball
No. 12 – Liz Repella, women’s basketball
No. 13 – Dan Mozes, football
No. 14 – Owen Schmitt, football
No. 15 – Julian Miller, football

Hertz then welcomes debate and suggestions, of which I’m sure there were many. I’ll ride for my man Wells. No. 6 is way too low. Remember this? Too sexy.

Speaking of … Scoop & Score was Vanessa Housian today. Tinges of Pat White, even.

Rob Rossi from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review went all in on Olympic hockey and previewed tomorrow’s games with specificity.

And then, relevant to one conversation we had this week, Texas Tech’s Elvis Moya came on to talk about enhancing the fan experience. Cotton Eyed Joe, frog legs and Monopoly money were somehow integral parts of a pretty fun conversation.

Here’s your link to the podcast. I’m told there were slight volume problems with the recording equipment. I can’t explain them because I didn’t encounter them on my end during the show, but I know we’re still trying to fix. The audio is all there, but sometimes it’s low. And this might not be a problem by the time you listen to it. Knock on wood.

Also, I need your help for next week. I’m going to do a WVU spring football preview show. I was thinking of a round table format with two knights joining me. Suggestions for who you’d want to here give their opinions about the spring and about 2014?

I’ll hang up and listen.

    Are you kidding me Hertz?! No J-FLow? That list is a joke. Also, Liz Repella is way too low..

  2. Any such list without a gymnast lacks legitimacy.

  3. TheVLC says:

    You absolutely HAVE to get Mickey in on this spring football coverage. Would love to hear him grouse about not being able to sit in the stands and watch every single thing that happens. After all, that’s how it was in the 1890’s!!!!

    Seriously though, what about Mitch Vingle and Geoff Coyle for the spring preview?

  4. Drew says:

    There was a female soccer player around the time I was in school or maybe a little after who was popular for her Kardashian-esque profile. Can’t remember her name, though.

    I had plenty of female friends very fond of Herber and Pat Beilein.

  5. Drew says:

    Get Not Dana Holgorsen and alter their voice so no one recognizes them.

    On a serious note, get Jed Drenning. He’s the best X&O analyst associated with WVU football.

  6. Parks says:

    I second the Geoff Coyle nomination and would love to see Dave Ubben back on as well.

  7. SheikYbuti says:

    I think you should invite Mack and smeer.

  8. Mack says:

    This is a weird discussion that I don’t think would ever happen if we were all in person.

    In other words, I don’t rate guys.

  9. Kevin says:

    Wasn’t there a holder during the Rich Rod days the ladies really liked? George Sh… Can’t remember his name, but remember girls holding up “Hold me, George” signs at the games.

    I would love it if Smart Football would be a part of the round table.

  10. JL says:

    Hertz couldn’t put Meg Bulger first because he didn’t want to seem like a creep, but let’s not kid ourselves, the list begins and ends with Meg Bulger.

  11. Mack says:

    I thought Liz Repella was decent looking . . . but Google images is not very kind to her.

    Kevin, it was George Shell. They used to call him the best holder in college football. I have no clue what he looked like.

    Side note: Not pointing out anyone on this message board because sports fans everywhere do it . . . but I find it a little weird when sports fans say, “My wife really thinks Mike Lorello is great looking.” Ummm… congratulations?

    I vote for Smeer on the roundtable… seriously.

  12. Kate says:

    As a female WVU fan, the sexiest WVU football player I can remember in the past 10-years was Mike Lorello.

  13. Rugger says:

    I’ve honestly never thought about how sexy our athletes are and I really don’t care but now that you mention it, Lorello was kinda hot.

    Mack/smeer > all others mentioned.

    Sheik/glibglub would be profound.

  14. MontanaEER says:

    Mack, should ” I don’t rate guys” be ” I don’t rate, guys”? 😀

  15. MontanaEER says:

    No Pittsnogle?

  16. I love you, Doug! says:

    Parks nails it. John Flowers was our Andre 3000. Game, set, match.

  17. Parks says:

    I’m all for this discussion, but putting “nails it” between my name and his in such a discussion..**shivers**

    I need a shower.

  18. SheikYbuti says:

    A cold one?

  19. Parks says:

    Oh, no Sheik. I need to burn the dirtiness off..

  20. I love you, Doug! says:

    We’re all lumberjacks and we’re okay…

  21. Parks says:

    I pick John Henry

  22. I love you Doug,

    I cut down trees, I skip and jump,
    I like to press wild flowers!
    I put on women’s clothing,
    And hang around in bars!

  23. Drew says:

    Did anyone else see that WVU wants to sell wine at games now?

    If so, did you also immediately think of how pissed Dave will be when he finds out?

  24. Parks says:

    This has the potential to really go off the rails…I’m grabbing a bag of popcorn and some beer and getting ready…

    And, Drew–yes to both.

  25. Kevin says:

    Drew – I didn’t consider Dave’s reaction, but I did wonder where they would put the cheese stand.

  26. avb31 says:

    The fact that this list even exists is creepy. I could have gotten along just fine not on knowing that Hertz can’t deny the sex appeal of Joe Alexander and Pat White.

  27. hershy112 says:

    jtmountaineer and JL spoke the truths of all truths about the sexiest athlete list. I would add that there should probably be some track or CC athletes on there. Overall, there are too many dudes for my taste.

  28. The 25314 says:

    When I think of an authority on sexy, I think Robert Hertzel.

  29. The 25314 says:

    And Drew is trying to think of Amanda Cicchini

  30. Whipple says:

    No one in the top 15 has been in a Turkish Axe Hair commercial.

    Amanda Cicchini has.

    This entire list is invalid.

  31. MontanaEER says:

    I sense a reality show.

  32. SheikYbuti says:

    Ooh, I forgot about Amanda Cicchini. I vote for her.

  33. The Artist Formerly Known as EER96 says:

    I vote Mickey and Dave for the Spring Football round table. However, the show would need to be started and completed before 3:00 PM so Mickey could make the Early Bird Dinner Special and Dave could get home before Happy Hour festivities begin.

    Additionally, I am starting a write-in campaign for Dusty in this Top 15 thing. What’s that? He’s wasn’t an athlete? Who cares! The dude looked like a competitive eater on steroids! Come on ladies…show Dusty some love!!!

  34. pknocker40 says:

    If Amanda Cicchini was a president, she’d be Baberaham Lincoln

  35. SheikYbuti says:

    I agree with Wayne Campbell.

  36. SheikYbuti says:

    And I’d be Millard Fillmore.

  37. Parks says:

    I’ll take the honorable Thomas Jefferson. He was a man’s kind of man. Lots of alcohol and women always around.

  38. JC says:

    Y’all know Joe Oliver was a stud…..
