Of more importance to those in the office, however, is the status of former league commissioner Mike Tranghese.
Last week, Tranghese's wife, Susan Huntemann Tranghese, passed away after a long illness at the age of 57.
Condolences to the ex-commissioner, a good man, in his time of grieving.
Aside from Nehlen, former assistant and new Marshall coach Doc Holliday, ex-MU assistant Red Dawson, ex-WVU players Robert Alexander, Walt Easley and Major Harris, ex-MU player Todd Donnan and Winfield legend Leon McCoy are expected to attend.
Among the items to be given away are a painting of Joan Edwards Stadium by painter and former Marshall QB Eric Kresser. (Who knew?)
For those interested in attending, the event begins at 6 p.m. The cost is $35.
Congratulations to South Charleston High's Pierria' Henry, who committed to play basketball for Virginia Commonwealth on Monday.
It was somewhat surprising because at one time schools like WVU, Marshall, Akron, Xavier, Kentucky, Ohio State, Indiana and Wright State had been checking out the 6-foot-4 Black Eagle. Others, like Kansas, LSU, USC, Arkansas and Oregon State, had been in touch.
"I think he just felt most comfortable with [VCU],'' said South Charleston coach Vic Herbert on Tuesday. "Plus, they were probably here more than anyone. It kind of surprised me too, though, because I thought he'd take more time to think about it.''
All, including Herbert, a former WVU player, are happy for Henry. But there is a bit of disappointment.
See, Henry kept insisting through the recruiting process he wouldn't make a call until this summer.
"I'll have a cookout with family and friends,'' he said. "Then we'll talk about what's best for me, my mom, my friends and fans.''
Guess those close to the player will have to find hot dogs and burgers elsewhere.
Have a great day.
