"No," Luck said. "I'm very happy with what I'm doing. We have lots to do here yet. I'm happy being on [school president] Jim Clements' team."
Luck said he knows little about the Big 12 search process, except that the schools would like a permanent commissioner "fairly soon." Among the others rumored to be interested are Conference USA commissioner Britton Banowsky, NCAA interim vice president of championships Greg Shaheen and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick.
And finally . . .
It's always interesting to follow recruiting on national signing day. As for WVU, though, the same movie - for the most part - plays over and over. Mountaineer coaches flirt with four- and five-star players. Most, if not all, go elsewhere. And those Mountaineer coaches win with the three-star kids that blossom.
Of the six prospects WVU was still targeting last week, the Mountaineers landed two: lineman Adam Pankey and wideout Travares Copeland. The four-star targets - Deaysean Rippy and Joel Caleb - went to Pitt and Virginia Tech, respectively. One I believed to be a terrific catch - defensive back Daniel Gray - went to Tennessee.
What fascinates me is the wild swings in evaluations. Deontay McManus is generally considered to be WVU's best catch this year. But ESPN.com rated quarterback Ford Childress (already at WVU) higher. It rated linebacker Sam Lebbie higher. It had three others tied with McManus.
That same site had WVU rated fifth - at least at midday - among the classes landed by Big East schools. Yet Scout.com had the Mountaineers atop the league and No. 26 nationally. WVU was rated ahead of schools like Oklahoma State, Rich Rodriguez's Arizona, Penn State and Nebraska.
The process is fun, but bizarre. It's inconsistent and as subjective as a group judging the same painting in an art gallery.
And it's changed. A bunch. Just ask Luck, also a former WVU quarterback.
"When I was a freshman," Luck said, "I came to Morgantown, checked into the Towers [dorm], and the first thing we had was a little media day. We sat in the stadium stands and no one knew anyone.
"I remember sitting by Sedrick King. He looked over and said, 'Oliver Luck? Damn, I thought you were a brother!' Now kids know everything about everyone."
