Tackling machine who was rock solid the night of 13-9? Terrific middle linebacker and not exactly a matcher of the Mountains.
“I like to reiterate the fact that we basically ruined their whole entire college career,” he says. “Nothing brings me more pleasure than when I say, ’13-9.’ The face they give me is just priceless.”
He was just warming up.
“You can’t say it when you play, because you give them bulletin-board material, but I (expletive) hate West Virginia. I can’t stand the state. I just don’t like that university. I guess now you can print me saying it.”
That’s an old quote, in case you didn’t know, but it’s a beauty. Especially now.
Perhaps you thought he was out of your life — and what I’m about to tell you doesn’t exactly bring him back into your life, unless you know the people involved — but he’s back in a most unusual way.
He’s romantically intertwined with one of the most generous donors the Mountaineers have ever known.
