Taaffe Update

Literally, the instant that the Ticat blogger and I completed that last article, this was posted. There is a brief note that just went up on the Ticats website about a statement to be made regarding Taaffe tomorrow at 4pm. To me, it implies that he is leaving Hamilton. If he was staying put, I'm assuming they would just come out and say that. They surely want to put all this to rest. I've also heard that Stewart said the OC position would be filled by tomorrow. Things could get interesting here people, so read the article below this one. It's chock full of good information, especially his bio link.

EDIT: So here it is after another contact. My insider believes that Taaffe is coming to WVU and that it will be announced tomorrow. I've never had an insider before, and the one I have now isn't from WVU. But let's just say that I am 100% certain that Taaffe is headed our way.

NEW EDIT: I just got an email from a person who asked me not to divulge their identity and affiliation with a certain team north of the border, so I won't. But it is 100% certain that Taaffe is coming to WVU as offensive coordinator. When this happens, I expect many kudos in my comments tab (just kidding). I stumbled ass backwards into a news break, sort of. Everybody was already thinking he might be the guy, but I guess having no life on a Saturday when The Editor is out of town has its advantages in the blogosphere. And before you question my credibility, since my blog is named Let's Go Drink Some Beers and is full of tomfoolery, let me remind you that I am not in the business of trying to break a story or anything like it. This blog is usually for fun and opinion, but this time it's absolutely the real thing. I'm not sure how I got in this position today, but it's damn fun. So anyway, not that big a deal, but cool.

The only thing I know about Taaffe is that he destroyed us while he was at Maryland. Hopefully he is able to utilize the speed and athleticism we have on our team and create an offense that would give Pat White a good shot at the heisman.

I would venture to guess that you mean we could HAVE done better.

Scoop! Hope this is true so we can settle down the offensive side of the ball in time for a visit with Josh Jenkins Monday.

O C'mon, you didn't break anything. Taffe has been the name mentioned since the beginning of the week. Everybody still thinks it is him, it is NOT.

I told you, I don't break anything, that's not why I'm here. I don't really care what you think about it. I'm just putting this out there for people who want to see it.
