- indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor
before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.” ― H.P. Lovecraft

Awright, I've been busy.

Unusually busy.

Especially busy for someone that has as little to do as I do.

That, combined with having nothing really to write about kinda puts me in a bind. I actually have a few things going on that are worth writing about, I just can't write about them yet.

But now I have something to write about. I have to talk about Coach Rod leaving WVU.

Yes, our coach jumped ship and went to Michigan and everyone is majorly pissed. To all those pissed people I have just one thing to say:

What the fuck did you expect?

Yeah it sucks ass, I hate it too, but you can't fucking blame the guy. He came in, put together a good program, good team, took a couple runs at the big bowl and he didn't make it. We almost lost him last year, but the boosters came up with extra money (funny we don't have any goddamn boosters for scholarships to underprivileged people, but I digress) and he stayed because he had to Hiesman trophy candidates and he thought he had a shot at the big one.

He stayed, we lost a game that we shouldn't have (as WVU always does) and we missed the shot again. At that point he had to realize that it just wasn't going to happen here. That coupled with the fucking athletic committee fucking with him meant that he had no reason not to jump on the next fucking offer to come his way.

Jesus people, he's just a coach. A good coach to be sure, but just a coach. We'll get another one. We'll suck for a little while. Big deal.

By the way, I use the term 'WE' honestly. I wasn't on the team, but I am an alumnus of West Virginia University and I therefore consider myself part of that school and part of that goddamn team. I put in my time, I graduated, I did a little lasting physical damage to the campus, quit giving me shit.

I'm not a huge football fan either. I didn't watch it at all till I went to WVU. Now I watch WVU and the Pittsburgh Steelers and that's about it. At best, I'm a casual observer, so maybe in the eyes of my fellow alumni I'm not hardcore enough to be making this statement. Fair enough.

What I can't stand though is the illiterate bastards who send poorly spelled letters to the editor of our crappy local newspaper or our crappy local TV station complaining about Rod leaving. Fuck those people. Get your GED, go to WVU, graduate, send me a correctly spelled, well thought out argument and we can talk about OUR team. Till then get the fuck out of my face.

Fuck people, we're goddamn lucky he didn't leave LAST YEAR.

Nothing could stop it.

Get over it.
