Don Nehlen gave a keynote speech in Ohio(!) and had some nice things to say about Bo and M. A pretty good off-season puff piece with a couple nice quotes.
"Going with Bo was the best thing that ever happened to me," said Nehlen. "Because I got the Bowling Green job when I was so young, I never knew if I was doing the right thing or not. When I went there (Michigan) I found out I was doing the right thing and it gave me a lot of confidence. Bo was such a great guy to work for. My wife loved him, she did not want to go to West Virginia. She loved Bo because Bo treated me so well. Going with Bo was just a dream."
"He kind of turned out to be my mentor," said Nehlen. "When I went to West Virginia, we did everything that Michigan did. Even our school colors where the same, all I did was turn the M upside down, really. At West Virginia I really got lucky. At the time I went there, they had a poll of the 10 worst teams in America and West Virginia was one of those 10 worst teams. The enthusiasm there for football is unbelievable. The best thing that ever happened to me was going to Michigan and then I got lucky and got the West Virginia job."
The guy that (momentarily) turned WVU around credits some of it to his time at M. A WVU fan would puke reading this. Trust me...I grew up there.
