West Virginia Keeps Hot Recruiting Streak Alive, Adds Pennsylvania Athlete To Class Of 2017

New, 1 comment

The Mountaineers have reeled in three commitments in the last 72 hours, and don't look to be stopping anytime soon.

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown: WVU's best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions.

News Of Note

Football:

Reuniting with Holgorsen reminds Joe Wickline of a season in which the two coaches teamed up with the rest of the staff to give opposing defenses fits with the diamond formation.

Construction continues on the East and North concourses at Milan Puskar Stadium.

Recruiting

When Ligonier Valley (Pa.) prospect Collin Smith drove to West Virginia's campus Tuesday, he did so intending to give a face-to-face commitment. And so the Mountaineers gained their sixth pledge for the class of 2017, and their third in the past 72 hours.

Around The League

Around The Big XII:

According to a new report in Waco, the Baylor Board of Regents met and discussed the future of Art Briles in the meeting.

Around The NCAA:

You know the old saying, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em"? Well, Ohio State has taken it to a whole different level. The Buckeyes are using Tim Tebow' on their recruiting materials.

Pitt didn't improve a lot in Narduzzi's first year, but the Panthers won close games, and they were young enough to generate serious optimism. SB Nation's Bill Connelly sees positive things for the Panthers, but we still think they can eat shit.

While talking about how dumb the Big 12's idea to have five-team divisions is, last week's Podcast Ain't Played Nobody proposed doing away with divisions entirely, for every conference. The guys at SB Nation thought about it, and realized it's pretty much a perfect idea. We should get rid of divisions, and we should replace them with small groups of annual rivals.
