ESPN poll indicates the world thinks WVU is in the right

Post by James Schrump » Thu, 24 Jan 2008 13:13:36


Funny that the talking heads are nearly 100% on RR's side, but the ESPN poll
here:

http://sports-ak.espn.go.com/ncf/index

shows that the nation and world are in WVU's court, 68% to 32%.  WV is
solidly pro-university at 98% of respondents, but Michigan is only 81% RR.

Of course these polls are unscientific and self-selecting; but still, there
have been over 21,000 votes, and states as far from WV as Hawaii and Alaska
are solidly pro-WVU.  Even the "international poll" shows 70% WVU, with 6846
total votes coming in from overseas.

You can't blame it all on the far-flung Mountaineer Nation alumni.  It must
be that objective football fans around the world know a rat when they see
one.

RR brought this all on himself when he hired a lawyer to try to weasel
out of his buyout clause.

the thing I don't get about all this is that I thought WVU was more
than RichRod...that WVU was a PROGRAM.  Coaches come and coaches go,
but the PROGRAM is what's important. Maybe I'm wrong about that.

You're kidding right?  ESPN polls get pwned by Husker fans all the
time....so much so that Kirk Herbstreit had a nervous breakdown on set
when the 1971 and 1995 Husker football teams were named the #1 and #2
greatest teams of all time.  Lil' Red  and Herby Husker have both been
named mascot of the year, et cetera.  All espn has to do is put up a
poll in some way related to Nebraska and it will get circulated to all
the Husker websites and when that happens it's over.  I am 100%
certain that 90% of the respondents to the poll you are citing are WVU
fans.

???  I don't recall any fan stating in here that they want him back or
that the program will collapse without him.

It's a good thing you're not obsessed with this.

Pretty much.

Yet no Bobby Petrino-like backlash ...

I'm refering to the stuck-buttoness of the entire thing.

WVU is so much better than all this.  We (Big East in general and WVU
in particular) should be celebrating the Bowl win and looking forward
to next season.
