Officially: Phelan is in College Hall
Sounds like Jim Phelan didn't differentiate from the Jim Phelan we know and love last night. Not that anybody was expecting him to. But in this Kansas City Star story it tells of how Phelan seemed to want to talk more about the current Mountaineers than himself. No surprise.
The story also says that Phelan was inducted and is finally a member of the College Hall of Fame. We couldn't be happier. We're sorry we missed out on the night in Kansas City, but glad that Phelan finally got some of the deserved recognition. Springfield should be calling next.
