One man's opinion on the pending Rich Rodriguez appearance next month in West Virginia regarding the lawsuit. West Virginia is suing Rod Rodriguez over a $4 million buyout clause in his contract. I ran into Chris Davis here in Phoenix. Davis (West Virginia Law 1994) is a lawyer and Mountaineers fan watching his team in the West Regional and offered this analysis on how the proceedings with play out.
"We're (school) owed money. Whether or not that full $4 million can be proved as sort of a punitive damage thing ... that's up to a jury. But in contract law, I don't know if we're going to get the full $4 million. I think we'll probably get sever million --- $2 million to $3 million, maybe.
There are a lot of hard feelings till. I'm surprised he's going to go forward with his deposition, personally ... I just think it's going to look bad."
