Quite a Tuesday in Morgantown. To review…
Mud slinging between WVU and former football coach Rich Rodriguez reached unpredictable proportions. A possibility also arose that WVU may have hindered its own lawsuit against Rodriguez. WVU officials knew for about two weeks files were missing, but someone chirped and made the news public when the athletic department was aware and apparently OK with keeping it quiet. WVU was then left without answers to many questions it was being asked, which is not entirely its fault.
Anyhow, the news prompted an agitated and — wouldn’t you know it — calculated responseÂ from the Rodriguez campÂ in which it became clear that if there are no backups to the vanquished files, Rodriguez could have evidence of institutional problems that contributed to his resignation. The buyout isn’t tucked as tightly in WVU’s pocket as it was 24 hours ago.
Oh, and two days after Coach Bill Stewart used him as a justification for Steve Slaton to leave school early and secure financial security, Pacman Jones went Pacman Jones.
Note to Steve: Stay out of the strip clubs.
