Round of Reubens

I'd probably rather have the sandwich than this 'Reuben Award' if I were a cartoonist.Get ready for Michigan to put the full court press on Beilein as soon as the NIT is over. From the website Mlive

This search isn't Beilein or bust, but it's close.
Close enough that it's hard to imagine Martin finding someone who's a better fit.
And even harder still to find someone who's a better coach.

OK that's fine, they like him. Now tell us what you think of WVU and Morgantown.

If he's such a good coach, why doesn't he recruit better?

"Have you ever been to Morgantown?'' the Big East assistant asks. "It makes Pittsburgh look like Miami. Nobody has ever - or will ever - recruit four-star (recruits) to Morgantown.''

Another former Big East assistant now working in another Division I league offered similar thoughts on the West Virginia coach earlier this week.

Ouch. Well I have very few contacts at WVU's athletic department, but one of them has stated that there is no current negotiation to extend Beilein and it is Beilein that is not talking. He may want to get out. We still have the option we've been asking for here and apparently is catching on. The Charleston Gazette on Marshall's coaching search including the aptly named Gregg Marshall from Winthrop:

Marshall could become available in a few years, after he gets his schnoz busted at South Florida. But for now, he seems bent on getting in the top six conferences, even if he has to take America’s most impossible job. Winthrop is going all out to keep him — even naming the court after him, according to one report.

Speaking of recruiting, Alabama is claiming a much needed victory over WVU. They got a kicker.

One was from West Virginia and the other was from Bama. Smith, who was the No. 2 kicker at the combine and was all-state as a kicker and punter last season, spurned coach Rich Rodriguez and the Mountaineers to make the trip south to Tuscaloosa.

I wouldn't really care, except that West Virginia native Nick Saban totally pwn3d Rodriguez by stealing this kid away. And that makes my schadenfreude-fueled heart all warm.

Awww, they really do care about us. Finally, WVU baseball fans got their moneys worth this Saturday as WVU swept a double header from Seton Hall. The first game went 13 innings. 22 innings for the price of one. What a country.

Kind of scraping the bottom of the barrel on reuben pics huh? Nice.

I always enjoy crushing the Hall twice. Not as much as ordering sandwiches by the round and making the circular finger motion, but it is pretty sweet. woot.
