While on that last subject, will someone please explain to me why a player can't be disciplined enough to plant their feet on the 10-yard line and not move back to field a punt?
It was a great success and, yes, Luck was asked about the impending athletic-director opening at Texas.
"I'm not going to comment on something personal," he said.
It was the exact way he handled the rumors linking him to the Stanford opening, which went to Bernard Muir in late July of 2012.
What Luck did say is there are plans to replace the Mountaineer Field turf after the 2014 season, although the crown will probably stay in place. He also mentioned the athletic department is looking at renovations/upgrades to the stadium concourse area. He mentioned restrooms and concessions.
I spoke to WVU basketball assistant coach Billy Hahn on Tuesday.
As many around the Mountain State know, Hahn's wife, Kathi, beat ovarian cancer, but was subsequently diagnosed with leukemia.
Well, Hahn's daughter, Ashley Calvery, has been so moved by her mother's battle that she wrote a book: "My Mom The Miracle: 1 Woman, 2 Cancers, 3 Years, 4-Ever Grateful." The book is not in print, but can be ordered for an iPad or kindle, etc., through Amazon.com.
"You'll have a tear in your eye; you'll laugh; and in the end you'll be touched," said the hoops coach.
Correction: Said the very proud hoops coach.
