The last two years have not been what WVU football fans were expecting. Ever since the Mountaineers made the switch to the Big 12, their success has slowly dwindled.

The team opened the 2012 season with five straight wins, only to finish 7-6.

For a long time, West Virginia University athletics existed as a Very Big Fish in a small Big East pond.

The always-entertaining “Backyard Brawl” between WVU and Pitt brought fan and media attention on an annual basis, arguably becoming one of the best rivalries in the eastern region.

Pitt and Penn State were fairly well-represented in last month’s NFL Draft, with each school sending three players into the league via the annual draft. The western Pennsylvania region also saw three players selected.

The first local player taken was no surprise, as Pitt defensive tackle Aaron Donald went 13th overall to the St. Louis Rams.

Year after year many college athletes transfer from one school to another. Football and both men’s and women’s basketball see more transfers than others, but recently the number of transfers in men’s hoops specifically has sky-rocketed.

Going into the 2013-14 academic year, nearly 450 male athletes switched schools to play basketball.

Eron Harris scored 33 points and Juwan Staten added 28 as West Virginia (2-1) pulled away late to defeat Duquesne 96-83 at WVU Coliseum.

The Mountaineers (2-1) managed to hold off the Dukes (1-2) to avenge last season’s loss, which was West Virginia’s only loss in the previous nine meetings between the two teams.

Bob Huggins took over the basketball program at his alma mater in 2007 after one year at Kansas State and an impressive 16-year run at Cincinnati, during which he took the Bearcats to 14 straight NCAA Tournaments.

He guided the Mountaineers to the Final Four in 2010, where they lost to Duke, and he won his 700th game as a head coach in 2011, becoming one of just four active coaches with 7oo wins.
