So the old saying is true. No good deed goes unpunished. All Bill Stewart did was take over a program in shock, win a great bowl game, lead us to winning seasons but of course we have not won a national championship. Of course, West Virginia has never won a national championship but I digress.
Bill Stewart is basically just like Bobby Bowden when it comes to homespun cornpone but Bobby has that Southern twang which makes his simplistic statements sound semi-sophisticated whereas Bill sounds like – well let’s be honest – Bill sounds like most of us!
Now it is true that presently the Big East is the easiest ticket to a national championship. As long as the Big East has the automatic BCS bid, going undefeated in the Big East almost guarantees a shot at the big game unless two other BCS teams go undefeated. So, 2011 could be interesting if WVU gets it all together.
Of course, I can’t feel too sorry for Bill Stewart. I think he has been paid about two or three million dollars for gosh sake so don’t get too upset that Bill is being treated poorly. Poor, he ain’t!
