Listened to AD Oliver Luck‘s press conference about hiring DH and easing Bill Stewart out. Basically, Ollie said he got rid of Stewart so WVU can win a national championship. Interesting. But Ollie has put a procedure in place that could … mind you I say could … blow up in his face and make him look pretty silly. Suppose Ollie the following happens.
Stewart is still head coach for 2011. He goes undefeated and wins the national championship. Now Ollie Luck can forever be known as the AD who dismissed a coach who won a national championship! My, my…..that would certainly place Ollie, WVU and DH in quite a NO WIN situation if per chance the Mountaineers run the table next year and grab the title. Would the fans let a national championship coach retire? Would the sports world look at this situation and start asking “what the heck was Oliver Luck thinking?” What would the team say?
This possibility reminds me of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. “Well, Ollie, this is another fine mess you’ve gotten me into!”
If there is a football god, the above scenario could well occur.
