HERTZEL COLUMN: Staten does it all to lead Mountaineers
This is beginning to become a novel with each West Virginia University game a new chapter.
One night Juwan Staten does this; the next night he does that.

FURFARI COLUMN: Dr. Nugent legendary to WVU med center, football program
It is said that Dr. Robert “Bob” Nugent once was something of an amateur boxer just for the fun of it.

Rowe reprimanded after Hawaii scuffle
Lester Rowe, one of West Virginia University’s greatest all-time basketball players and an assistant coach on Mike Carey’s women’s basketball staff, has been reprimanded and put on notice by the Big 12 Conference for his role in a scuffle with fans that broke out directly after the Mountaineers won a tournament in Hawaii last weekend.
HERTZEL COLUMN: WVU goalie learned to love soccer
Sara Keane isn’t sure what path she might have followed growing up athletically, if any at all, but the one thing she was sure of back then is it would not have been as a soccer player.

Mountaineers prepare for four-game challenge
They ought to pass out a sombrero to every fan who attends tonight’s 7 o’clock West Virginia University basketball game against Georgia Southern.

HERTZEL COLUMN: Injury slowed Cook Saturday in Kansas loss
It was one of the saddest sights of a season filled with them.
Kansas running back James Sims had just broken into the West Virginia secondary and safety Darwin Cook, the surest and most prolific of Mountaineer tacklers, had a shot at getting to him but couldn’t do it.

There were moments last year, and to be totally truthful there were quite a few of them, when one could not quite understand what Bob Huggins had seen in Juwan Staten to make him believe he could run his team from the point.
FURFARI COLUMN- Could WVU football program get any lower?
I think it became full blown for all to see in West Virginia University’s 31-19 football loss to Big 12 cellar-dweller Kansas that the Mountaineers can’t get any lower, performance-wise.
