Rich Rodriguez is 4-0 against UConn (and coach Randy Edsall). The year they (UConn and WVU) shared the title, UConn lost by 45 points.

I'm not saying that this had any reason for why UConn was scheduled for the opener, merely that despite UConn's success (they were a combined 26-22, with two bowl games and WVU was 41-9 with 4 bowl games two of which were BCS) RR had their number. Maybe this is all moot considering that Connecticut is better than those past teams, RR only played a UConn team with a winning record twice, RR had very good teams, and 4 games is a pretty small sample size, but this is interesting nevertheless.
Props to this "Sports Gossip Blog" called Sports By Brooks for offering a more thorough look at the McNair situation. Pictures and details you won't see anywhere in the mainstream media as of now, are covered by this site. The latest on the McNair incident is here: http://www.sportsbybrooks.com/opposite-day-no-motive-for-kazemi-to-kill-...
Apparently, McNair has a kid, Steve McNair Jr. that's going into his senior year of high school, as a three star WR prospect. So far he has offers from WVU, So. Miss, Mississippi State and Tulsa. Rivals didn't indicate any interest from us, understandably, considering what we already have committed.
My condolences to Jr.
What do you think Lane Kiffin is going to do now that Brunetti, who plays HS in Tenn, committed to West Virginia. According to Rivals, Brunetti has only visited WVU, but still, isn't it amazing how Tenn can't get a top tier quarterback recruit? Yes, he had one in Tajh Boyd last year and some how let him go.
This semi-affects us because Brunetti named PSU as one of his leaders and it's always good to see PSU lose out on some good players.
