West Virginia's Athletic Department looked into whether any alleged wrongdoing—similar to that alleged against Coach Rich Rodriguez and his staff—occurred while Rodriguez was at West Virginia. Assistant athletic director for communications Michael Fragale told the Daily Mail that "Based upon our looking back over the weekend, we don't feel we have any concerns."

"We have checked it out and there has been nothing flagged and nothing out of the ordinary. There were no student-athlete complaints during the time (Rodriguez) was here."

That's a seven-year period folks.

Apparently, former West Virginia players also spoke to the West Virginia Daily Mail anonymously and said they knew of nothing similar happening at West Virginia.
