    Only 7 signees announced so far. Two good players from the OVAC but they let a lot of talent go elsewhere. Wheeling picked up quite a few OVAC kids

    Says he's received several offers including a Power 5 school in Virginia Tech. Also offers from Central Michigan, Tarleton State, Albany, Sacred Heart and Samford. Might be better suited as a safety at upper levels, depending on scheme. Excellent ball skills and instincts.

    Well Boat , you can shine the helmets and wash the jock straps now since another successful season is over. Hilltoppers finished with one of their better seasons of late, with a record of 4-7. Same as last season so they may have stabilized. Of the four teams they outslugged, their total records were 7 wins and 37 losses. I guess it's back to the California JUCO's to replenish the talent they are losing. Can't wait until next summer to hear how the team is jelling and really looking good in practice. The new guys are blending in good and with limited injuries they should be in the mix. Enjoy basketball season!
    Looking forward to a "QB Rotation" like we did with Crow and LaGarde. Maybe we can get one of our few .500+ seasons??

    Well, the President is leaving at years end, the AD should go to for not making a move all these years. Be a nice Christmas present for the AD and Waialia both be fired.
    Seeing as the search firm announced they are going to have "listening sessions" on campus in early January, I wouldn't hold my breath for a "Christmas present."

    With the amount of resources they have, it is unbelievable that WLU is not constantly at the top of the MEC.

Poor recruiting, an apparent inability to coach the best out of the players they did have and an obvious lack of institutional desire to win squandered that pretty quickly and left us with a coaching staff that is simply going through the recruiting motions, and the coaching motions knowing that what they do, or don't do, will have zero impact on their ability to keep their coaching jobs.

    Shame is also a good word and it goes right in hand with embarrassment. I don't think I could continue to coach after SOOOO many shamefully bad seasons. I mean, how do you look yourself in the mirror every day and know you have failed at your job? And not just failed, failed miserably. But not this staff, they show up every day and do the same things they have done for the last decade...recruit the same schools...coach the players the same way..get the same disastrous results. And at the end of the week, I bet each is on his bank app to make sure that they got paid!
    And all those typed words you’ve wasted over the years…u sheep slayer u…lol

    FWIW Amedro made a post on FB tonight with a picture of the football team’s records since 2011 with the comment “When are they gonna make a move?? Wow! Terrible”

    For many years I enjoyed West Liberty's broadcast capabilities. So, so much better than many of the schools who, for a long while, seemed to just have somebody's 1990s camcorder on a tripod with questionable audio. It would be nice to see the broadcast program capture a winning program.

    And one would think the coaching staff would feel shame that a practically brand new program in Wheeling has passed 'em as a rapidly improving program--and top program in the northern panhandle.

    Guess I'm wired differently than a WLU football coach but I don't know how they personally can continue to fail year after year after year. If it were me as a minimum I would drastically change how I coached (AND recruited) because, quite obviously, what I was doing wasn't working. After more than a decade of mind numbing FAILURE, I don't know how these coaches can continue to want to coach.
