I learned a valuable lesson from this incident. As a football coach, I am always in the public eye and I have to hold myself to a higher standard, which is what I ask our players to do. I'm sorry that this incident has put the University and the football program in a difficult position. I will not put myself in that situation again.

Head Coach-in-Waiting Dana Holgorsen. Really, unless anything major not yet known breaks in the coming days and weeks, that should be the end of this incident. And if you're out at the casino and Holgorsen sits down beside you, hesitate before buying him a shot.

MARSHALL, AS IS THEIR CUSTOM, CHECKS IN. At three points it is a meager score in comparison to some of the giants walking the board right now, but Marshall does continue its annual contribution streak with a domestic battery and concealed weapon charge from linebacker Brian Robinson. The bonus for hitting girls kicks in to take Marshall to three points in the Fulmer Cup, a sum leaving them only 77 points shy of catching Auburn. Never surrender!

Marshall: We Play For Championships. But, as is their custom these days, they fall woefully short.

Najee Goode on junior college transfer Josh Francis, who is making quite an impression in spring camp. While Jeff Casteel doesn't quite go as far as naming him a starter yet, the Smoking Musket will (and has).

WVU To Face Kansas State In Wichita

1

Bob Huggins will make his return to Kansas -- though in Wichita, a "neutral" site -- on December 8 of this year to face the Wildcats. Two things don't thrill me about this trip: 1) It will be very difficult to come out of this game with a win. 2) I have a bad feeling the combination of copy editors and a game in Kansas is going to end up in awful Wizard of Oz themed ledes.

Holgorsen, His Genius, And The Division of Labour

7

Conveniently, the smartest blog on football is titled Smart Football, which makes remembering it easy for us less than geniuses. The site also takes quite a liking to Dana Holgorsen, who in the time it took you to read that last sentence, just completed a Rubik's Cube and slept with your ex-wife. Part of Holgorsen's genius is the fact that he allows players to only play one position, therefore simplifying the process of learning and lessening the time of offensive installation. It's simple Adam Smith in 1776's An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. You can either read that seminal work by Smith or the blog post linked above, it's your choice. Either way, Holgorsen is a genius and your ex-wife is smoking a cigarette.

All Hell Is About To Break Lose On The Plains

...and we have a front row seat. I hate to point people away from this amazing, fantastic, really super duper awesome site, but if you really want to enjoy tonight's HBO special on corruption at Auburn (or, as they like to call it, recruiting), you best check out Every Day Should be Saturday (linked above). They'll be live blogging, and when Spencer Hall live blogs, God listens (the real God, not Nick Saban, unless Nick Saban is the real God, then my bad). Note #1: The subscription numbers for HBO in the state of Alabama had to have gone from somewhere south of 50 to north of 100,000 in one day. Note #2: The recruits talk about receiving "money handshakes." In the part of Koreatown I frequent, that means something totally different. At least, I think..?

Yet Another Shocker: Auburn Players Received Cash

4

I know, it's almost unbelievable. Just like the shock that was yesterday's Danny Jennings transfer news, our world has been rocked again by the reports that Auburn players were paid to play football, which is an amateur sport at the collegiate level. [pause for laughter] Yes, amateur. There's an even higher chance of Auburn having to vacate their national championship, which only leaves 27 more schools in the way of WVU's 2010 BCS National Championship!

WVU Baseball Continues Its Long Tradition Of Not Winning Winnable Games

16

This time, the lucky recipient of Greg Van Zant's ineptness was Morehead State, which was just good enough at 4-19 on the season to knock off the Mountaineers 6-5 at Appalachian Power Park in Charleston. If Bill Stewart was ushered out the door because of program stagnation, Greg Van Zant should be thrown out a high window.

Danny Jennings To Transfer

5

In what should come to a shock to no one, absentee forward Danny Jennings will transfer. "We appreciate Danny’s contributions to Mountaineer basketball," said Bob Huggins. "We wish him the best of luck and will assist him, if asked, in finding a school." It's a classy move by Huggins, especially towards a player whom with he obviously did not see eye to eye. It didn't work out for Jennings in Morgantown, but we here at Smoking Musket certainly wish him well.
