Gondrezick’s Absence Compounds WVU Roster Woes MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Not to have been missed on the cover of West Virginia University’s opening game pro

8 active players? How does this happen? Such high expectations for this team over the last number of years seem to go down the drain. Couple of injuries and we are in deep trouble.
Carey has amasses a good W/L record with about 21W’s/yr over his 17 years and almost 24W’s/yr in B12 action. Looking closer the move to the B12 hasn’t been that kind. Finishing T5th first year, then T1st, T7th, 3rd, 6th, 6th the last two years is middle of the pack at best in the B12. Looks like the schedule resembles a PITT program front loaded with weak OOC games to pad the W column.
Since the move to the B12 we got to the Dance 4 times and not making it out of the 2nd round even in the ’13/’14 year when we T1 in the B12 and 7th in the polls. In the last 6 years of the BE Carey took the team 5 times to the Dance and didn’t make it out of the 2nd round any year.
Now two years in a row with only 8 active players when there are 15 schollies available? How does a coach let this happen? It’s not like Shane put a lid on the numbers.
Carey certainly has elevated this program to a much higher level than it has ever been. The 9 years and 3 coaches prior to Carey arriving were in the toilet. Program was a complete dumpster fire. Looking at the trend now we are not getting any better. Even with the hype of some very good recruits this program has become stagnant.
So….. getting back to the original question …… How do you go two years in a row starting the season with only 8 active players?November 8, 2018 at 12:01 pm #73819
The only thing I would disagree with is that I thought Susan Walvius was a pretty good coach. Leaving it in the hands of Alexis Basile? was a huge mistake.November 8, 2018 at 12:09 pm #73820
She had a great name for a WVU coach WalViUsNovember 8, 2018 at 12:15 pm #73821
Walvius was a good coach. Better than the coaches before (Harrelson) and after(Basil) her to be sure. Not great, but good. Only here for 2 years then went on to South Carolina and had a mediocre career there in 11 years with just over .500 record. After she left, Staley turned USC into a powerhouse.
Agree completely with your Basil comment. That was 4 years of torture.November 8, 2018 at 12:38 pm #73822
It seems like every year on paper we are awesome until injuries or other factors weigh in. Very aggrevating
