Road Report from West Virginia

A friend of the blog (you may know him as formelyannonymous), was driving through West Virginia today and sent me this text message:
Update from the road:
A WV home facing I-81 is just now painting over a full side of the home currently a mural saying Rich Rodriguez sucks. Yes it is a trailer.
Then he sent a follow up:
Couch appears intact. No confirmed burn marks.
So it appears as though West Virginia is finally getting over Rich Rodriguez taking the Michigan job and every record of every player ever (he did that right?). Now the Mountaineers can go back to being a mediocre team in a mediocre football conference.

    Just to let you know, Epke Udoh seems to be considering a transfer.

    Thanks for the tip, Matt. We probably won't report on that situation until it is resolved, though.

    Although not steeped in a powerful football history, WVU is and has been in the past couple of years a much stronger team than Michigan. I am sure you won't have to be reminded that it was Michigan that had a rough 2007 season and will be the team that will have to prove it worth. RR is a good coach with a great offense. You will find that he doesn't always make the greatest in-game decisions. It will come as a shock to a lot of UM fans that WV'ians as a majority can understand moving on from a job (even his alma mater and self-proclaimed "dream job"). The manner in which he did it was a bit slimy... that's what burns most Mountaineer fans. In WV, WVU sports are very important. We are a proud state and can come off bad at times, but as you all know... there are assholes everywhere. Even your beloved school has bad fans and even guys that enjoy poking fun of the living conditions of those poorer than themselves.

    crussell i dont think anyone was making fun of people's financial situations

    what is funny is that someone is so jilted about RR leaving that they would paint Rich Rodriguez sucks on the side of their house. what does that do besides make them look ridiculous?

    Glad i could entertain you all. It was on the northbound side. the house will be freshly painted white.

    and I must remark how hilarious is the "I posted" tag. About damn time.

    I saw this report on the WVU sports website. Pretty impressive for a mediocre team/program.
