I would hope so. There probably is still a lot of misinformation out there. And for some folks, it doesn't matter what I say or why we made the move. They'll always be mad. It's unfortunate, but that's the way some of them want to be. I've been back a couple of times and the West Virginia fans have been great. It's still my home. I enjoyed our seven years there very much, and I think they realize we gave it everything we had all the way until the day we left. And our entire staff did that. I think over time people realize it was a really good run.

Rich Rodriguez, reflecting on his perception in West Virginia. There's good and bad in that statement. The good is him talking about the success that he had at West Virginia. Eventually, that will start to be better appreciated by the majority of the fan base. The bad is the last sentence of the first paragraph. If you want to be accepted back in to West Virginia, both sides are going to have to swallow pride. Blaming WVU fans for still being mad is not the way to do that.
