In a strong show of support, over 1700 WVU fans have signed a pro-Rodriguez petition in a mere 24 hours. Who knows how many signatures could have been raised in an extended campaign?!

Petition author, Jim Dierwechter, penned, "As fans, we are committed to a winning football program. We have read the stories and have tried to educate ourselves on the issues of Coach Rodriguez possibly going to Alabama. As a result, we want WVU to commit to a winning program too. We do not want to be reminded of what occurred last June. We want to focus on the needs of Coach Rodriguez and his staff as they continue to take our program into the upper echelon of college football."
