Yep. I think that about sums it up. Its not just Marianotto but Tranghese deserves a fair share of the blame.West Virginia also alleges, "The denigration of the Big East Conference is a direct and proximate result of ineffective leadership and breach of fiduciary duties to the football schools by the Big East Conference and its commissioner."
The suit was filed in Monongalia Circuit Court. I wonder if the trial could be held at Mountaineer Field?
"Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."
The whole point to this is public relations. By WVU filing the lawsuit and alleging that the conference failed because of the leadership is trying to get the Big East to cave. If they cave, which may happen if the invited teams join, WVU plays in the Big 12 next year and Syracuse and Pitt go to the ACC.
If not, it will likely be overturned in an appeals court not in the Mountain State. WVU is using the argument that TCU was able to exit and join right away as well as using the Big East's conference failure, but Oliver Luck has played both sides and as much as I like and respect Luck, I could see him being the downfall in this case.
All I know is that the special team situation has to change. And a little less arm tackling wouldn't hurt either.
They beat Florida and likely have the east, Richt is safe.
I think Dana H needs to be given the opportunity to bring his own coaches in and make the program his. I expected there to be some mess this season because of the way the transition happened (I started to say 'was handled' but it wasn't handled, it just happened.) We've had two losses that shouldn't have happened and still have Cincinnati, probably the best league team on the schedule, to go. The school needs to gain a bit of stability before tackling the Big 12*.
