Your Mother Slept With Wilt Chamberlain

A Sports Blog on why ALL Teams Suck…Again!

I LOVE Ken Kendrick

So America has been on the “Mountaineer Lovefest” the past 24 hours. We all know that West Virginia defied the odds by defeating “mighty” Oklahoma at the Tostito’s Fiesta Bowl. Bill Stewart is no longer the “interim” head coach of West Virginia. He is now THE head coach of West Virginia, and everyone is happy…

Well, make that ALMOST everyone is happy. Ken Kendrick, wealthy alum/booster of WVU, has criticized the move. Here’s the direct quote: “He is so overmatched it’s not even funny,” said Kendrick, managing partner of Major League Baseball’s Arizona Diamondbacks. “He’s a nice guy and a father figure. But they had a wonderful architect and they hired the painter to build the next house. I want Bill Stewart to win and I want our program to be successful. But I feel bad for our future. I’m very concerned.”

From wonderful architect to painter??? SMACK!!! That had to hurt. This guy talks more trash than an NBA player. I got two angles that I wanna come from on this one. On one hand, Stewart just took a team in chaos and led them to order on a very big stage. Head coaches can delegate and these days, they have to. Position coaches and coordinators are much more vital now than ever. Head coaches, especially in college, have to be organized, motivate the troops, and show an ability to lead the team. Ask any Longhorn fan how much actual coaching Mack Brown does. He is a CEO type coach. He recruits, manages, and motivates. He deals with the media and shakes boosters hands and kisses their kids and grandkids. That is not to say that he doesn’t help in the game prep, but he manages more than anything else.

On the other hand, Kendrick is right. Stewart is walking into a potential disaster. Expectations have never been higher for West Virginia football. Owen Schmitt, Darius Reynaud, Johnny Dingle, and other key members on both sides of the ball will be leaving, along with potentially Steve Slaton. While I do think that Noel Devine is actually an upgrade, you’re losing a lot, and even more when Pat White leaves next year. Calvin Magee, offensive coordinator, is headed for Ann Arbor. Not to mention the fact that, let’s be honest, recruits that were going to West Virginia will probably go to Michigan instead.

I look at the situation like this: Imagine you’re a bachelor. Let’s face it, you’re no Brad Pitt, but you’re no Seal either. You are a decent looking guy, have a decent job and car. Now imagine that you have been dating Keira Knightley, Scarlett Johansson, and Megan Fox, all at the same time. Now you haven’t even gotten to first base with any of them, but there is a mutual attraction. The sexual tension is mounting. Out of nowhere, you end up in the bed with Amy Winehouse. After sleeping with Amy, you now have the lyrics to “Rehab” in your head and you ask her, while you are still in your post coital bliss, to marry you…and she says yes.

This decision will affect West Virginia one way or the other. Kendrick is the one Mountaineer that I agree with on the coaching search. I like Bill Stewart. He’s funny, charismatic, and charming. But, like Amy Winehouse, his follow up be good, or he’ll be mired as just another “One Hit Wonder”…
