Football Recruiting - More on Mike Fladell

 I was playing against Richard Kittrell and he was looping to the outside but cut to the inside. I was able to stop him from getting by me. He wasn't able to get past me once all day. Afterwards, Coach Schiano told me that that was the play that really opened his eyes as to what I could do. Rutgers called my coach the next day and an offer came a couple of days later. -- More on Mike Fladell

West Virginia

Sometime this morning, the West Virginia University football coach staff will come out of the bunker in which they have huddled for two weeks planning the details of the upcoming season and welcome 35 or so newcomers into their program. They will issue equipment and rules, meet with the players and their families and, for the next few days, indoctrinate them into Mountaineers football. But somewhere in the back of their minds are bigger things to think about, for on Wednesday the veterans report and the real work begins. The goal, quite simply, is to erase the horror of a 3-8 initial season under coach Rich Rodriguez and to show enough improvement that everyone is convinced the Mountaineers are on the road to recovery.
