So, What Does All This Mean?

Hard to say. Shawn Falkenstein at WVMetroNews does a good job of breaking it down, but in a nutshell:

-WVU accused of five major infractions. They are: exceeding the allowed number of coaches by using non-coaching staff members to perform coaching duties (in both on field and 7-on-7 drills), failing to monitor the compliance of non-coaching staff members, failing to promote an atmosphere of compliance in regards to the duties of non-coaching staff members, and failing to comply with the limits on the number, duties and responsibilities of coaching staff members.

-WVU’s potential penalties could include probation, reduced scholarships, reduced practice time or a ban on post-season play.

That said, WVU is self-reporting all of these violations, so there’s no reason to jump out a window. When this will be resolved and what the impact on the WVU Football program will be is still very unclear at this point. That said, I don’t it see it having too dramatic of an impact, but I’m a wide-eyed optimist.

It should be noted that these violations happened between 2005 and 2009 meaning both the Rodriguez and Stewart “administrations” are under investigation.
