Expense figures from NC State's trip to the Champs Sports Bowl have been made public.
Multiple high-ranking sources with knowledge of the situation have informed The Smoking Musket that Bill Stewart allegedly served as one source of the contentious Herald-Dispatch report of Dana Holgorsen's purported alcohol-related incidents.
Sophomore Joe Madsen, the team's starting center, reserve defensive back Eain Smith, a junior, and reserve junior defensive lineman Josh Taylor did not meet NCAA eligibility requirements and will not participate in the bowl. Smith and Taylor, while not starters, are contributors to West Virginia's defense.
As of 5 p.m. Saturday, when the WVU Coliseum ticket office closed following the men's basketball win over Cleveland State, WVU had sold only a bit more than one-third of its bowl allotment of 12,500 tickets.
Matt Wells, WVU's sports marketing director, said the school has sold only 4,403 tickets. That number is in stark contrast to past years, when the Mountaineers were known for traveling in significant numbers at bowl time.
