Regular readers know that UD has a category – Online Makeover – singling out American universities whose campus life is so sordid, so sodden, so stupid, that it is time for them to shut down their physical plants and reopen as exclusively online institutions.

West Virginia University, whose new coach (the state’s highest paid employee) appears to be a seriously obnoxious drunk, is a perennial Party School winner (it’s number four on the latest list), and is – just to top things off – likely to decide in the next few weeks to sell booze at its football games.

In short, WVA is a Purveyor of Fine Wines and Spirits, and should be allowed to spin off its course-offering component and ply its trade unimpeded.

    You don’t know a damn thing about WVU or its new coach. Are you going to write similar posts about the other four top party schools? Schools like Wisconsin or Oregon. Also WVU is the only school in the big east that doesn’t sell alcohol at it’s football games. You should be more careful before you start throwing judgement around.

    Dear James: I write about all the party schools, not just WVU.

    I know plenty about your new coach. I’m not throwing anything around on this blog that isn’t being thrown around – with far more force – in your local newspaper.

  3. James Says:

    You are referring to the hack Chuck Landon. His article is full of unsubstantiated lies serving his goal of smearing WVU’s name. Please don’t mistake that for actual journalism.
