Actor Adam Driver seems to be everywhere these days — he’s Daniel Radcliffe’s best friend in “What If” and has a busy fall looming — including the cover of GQ. Here is a preview, courtesy of the magazine. New York, N.Y. — “It’s hard to describe. You’re put in these very heightened circumstances, and you learn a lot about who people are at the core, I think. You end up having this very intimate relationship where you would, like, die for these people,” actor Adam Driver tells GQ’s Jessica Pressler of his time in the Marines. A subject that inspires more...

I have no problem with the U.S. air-dropping supplies to the stranded Yazidis on Mount Sinjar in northern Iraq. It was the right thing to do. Now let's show the same concern for our own hungry citizens stranded in poverty. That's also the right thing to do.

It has been forty years since the Watergate scandal forced Richard M. Nixon to resign from office. Jimmy Carter, elected as a backlash to Nixon, only lasted one term. Since that time, only two Democratic Presidents have been elected, and both have been under siege by republicans in Congress. Clinton was impeached and Obama might be. This is a sad state of affairs.

In the normal course of events, a nose guard in football is seldom mistaken for a defensive end. Each develops a special skill set based upon his physical attributes. The end being known more for speed and quickness than strength. Will Clarke, listed at 6-foot-7, 271 pounds and quick of foot, was a prototypical defensive end, Chris Neild, listed at 6-foot-2, 301 pounds, the prototypical nose guard over the last few years at West Virginia.

These are the days of summer when West Virginia’s football team is involved in itself, worrying not about the shadow that Alabama casts over their summer practices. That’s tomorrow and what the Mountaineers are doing is working on today right now. Oh, defensive coordinator Tony Gibson admits that each day there is some Alabama things being talked about or installed, but practice has not yet come down to preparing for the Crimson Tide because the depth chart is not set and all that is necessary for a game plan has not been installed.

You probably haven’t given this very much thought, but there’s a reason why special teams in football are deemed special teams. To be good at it, it takes special skills to play on special teams.

It would be easy for the West Virginia University football coaches to spend a little extra time on game planning with a full offseason to get ready for Nick Saban and crew in the Aug. 30 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta.

Over the past two years, as West Virginia gave up a rather amazing 895 points with 62 touchdown passes and 7,238 aerial yards, it became apparent that something had to be done to fortify the pass defense.
It was a long time ago, although not quite as long as the “four and a half centuries ago,” as Dana Holgorsen put it, that the West Virginia University head football coach first crossed paths with the man who would become his offensive coordinator, Shannon Dawson.

I caught up with “Monty Python’s Spamalot” last Sunday, when the show stood as the sparkler atop Pittsburgh CLO’s sweet and sassy 2014 season. CLO gifted theatergoers with a cast that could have come direct from a Broadway revival of the delightfully cheeky musical, based on the British troupe’s “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and adapted by Eric Idle and John Du Prez. It was especially fun to see Robert Creighton in the role of Patsy. Among his Broadway roles are Durdles/Mr. Nick Cricker in last year’s revival of “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” and a replacement Timon...
