I didn't necessarily want to be right...

But I was. Despite bold proclamations to the contrary earlier today, West Virginia head football coach Rich Rodriguez will stay in Morgantown rather than coming to Alabama thanks to WVU's successful last-ditch efforts to retain him. As I said last week, it's mighty hard to lure a man away from his alma mater when all the pieces are in place there to compete for a national title. At the last minute, his hometown Mountaineers managed to win him back.

Oh, well. Time to see who else wants more than $2 million a year.

He's a talented coach who's won impressively everywhere he's been. But Navy is offering him a big raise, so I'm not sure what his interest level would be after that.
