On this week's Got Your Eers On?, we discuss the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Texas road trip for WVU Hoops, Coach Huggins wants your butt in the gym (pronto) during the Texas post game, and somehow Kevin Stallings cheated while at Pitt and things got worse. Join us for all this and more on this week's episode of Got Your Eers On?...!

Segment 2: Huggins Texas Postgame
- Kevin Stallings was basketball coach when these happened; Pat Narduzzi was football coach.
- Cover-up attempts by both programs that were overstepping restrictions on the use of non-coaching personnel.
- Staff members who weren’t coaches were engaged in illegal coaching activities. Basketball: including the installation of a new defensive scheme. Football: Those activities included holding play cards for scout-team members, helping the offensive line coach, and playing catch with players during practice.
- Pitt went so far as to employ computer forensics experts to recover practice film that had been removed from the basketball program’s computer systems.
- Serious employment restrictions also were placed on Stallings, who is no longer coaching, and former director of basketball operations Dan Cage that would make it difficult for them to return to collegiate athletics.
- Among the penalties, some of which already have been served, are:
- A $5,000 fine plus ½ of 1% of each of the men’s basketball and football budgets.
- A reduction in men’s basketball recruiting days by 17 during the 201-18 academic year.
- A reduction in the number of men’s basketball coaches by one at regular practice for 16 hours during the 2019-20 academic year.
- A reduction in men’s basketball athletically related activities hours this spring from 20 to 18 (in-season) and eight to seven (offseason).
- A reduction of athletically related activities for the football program by eight hours and the number of coaches by one for two days of practice during the 2018 season.
- A reduction in the number of football coaches by one for four days of practice in the 2019-20 academic year.
- Two football quality control staff members must be removed from practice for three days during the 2019-20 academic year.
