Chuck Finder of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette details the displeasure of West Virginia Mountaineers head coach Bill Stewart (link above). After being the toast of the Big East Conference for the past four years or so, the 'Neers (8-4) will forgo a New Year's Day bowl and instead take on the North Carolina Tar Heels in the Meineke Car Care Bowl. I have to tell you; I'm happy that Bill Stewart is upset. It's a testament to the type of football program that WVU is trying to maintain after losing Rich Rodriguez in an unceremonious fashion last season (hey Michigan....how's that working out for you?).
