    everybody has their projection.  Here’s Jerry Palm’s.

    Dec. 28 Guaranteed Rate

    vs.

    Big 12 vs. Big Ten 10:15 PM Phoenix, Ariz.
    #164961

    Playoffs

    1. UGA vs 4 OKSt
    2. Meatchicken vs 3 Cincy

    No ACC, No P12.  No second SEC.  No tOSU

    #164963

    I’d actually like to see that playoff

    #164971

    My hope that he’s wrong. That’s not a good match up this year for WVU. Purdue has eight wins, and have been a high scoring offense.

    I also don’t like the game starting as late as it does. Most people who work couldn’t stay up to watch the game since it won’t end until two in the morning.

    In other forecasts I’ve seen, WVU matched up with Missouri and with some other B-10 and SEC schools that I’d much prefer the Mountaineers play.

    #164985

    I like it just not the match up.

    #165031

    I’d rather see WVU in Phoenix just for a change of scenery. And playing a uncommon Big 10 team like Minn or Purdue.

    #165033

    I’ll have a bowl analysis/guess article out in a couple of days, but I think Texas Tech is very likely to get the Guaranteed Rate Bowl in Phoenix.

    #165035

    Just a hunch — Memphis….

    I think WV will be over matched against just about any likely opponent.  Especially if Leddie opts out

    #165040

    tend to disagree with you on Leddie.  We have RB’s that can fill the void.  Game planning around Jarrett will be the biggest hurdle.

    #165044

    Orlando would be nice.

    I’m ok with Tony Mathis being our main tailback in the bowl if it comes to that.

    And that is not a knock on Leddie in any way.

    Where we’re hurting is on defense. If we don’t get some guys back healthy before the bowl game, especially in the linebacker area, its going to be tough sledding.

    “its going to be tough sledding.”

    Especially in Florida!

    I’ll have a bowl analysis/guess article out in a couple of days, but I think Texas Tech is very likely to get the Guaranteed Rate Bowl in Phoenix.

    I’m hearing Texas Tech is pushing for the Liberty

    #165063

    My projections:

    Orange: Oklahoma State

    Sugar: Baylor

    Alamo: Oklahoma

    Orlando: Iowa State

    Texas: Kansas State

    Liberty: Texas Tech

    Phoenix: West Virginia

    #165155

    Butlereer have to disagree on Brown. Yes we have Backs that can step in but not to the same degree, ability etc.

    #165161

    Doc, I get your hesitancy, but we have to win without Leddie next year.

    And you don’t know if we have backs who can step in, because Leddie hasn’t missed a game this year.

     

    #165165

    Deuce I fully agree. Butlereer, you and many others be back east in all odds get a lot more information than I do here in the Phoenix area. I only get information from this site. Local papers here in reality suck at sports. Only local news on WVU is the commit of the QB at Hamilton HS. You guys have so much more access. Butlereer may be correct but Brown’s ability isn’t easily replaced or matched

    #165178

    My hope is the latest start time for the bowl game is no later than 9PM. And, I’d prefer it at least a couple of hours earlier than that.

    I’d also like to see the Mountaineers play a game that both teams would be competitive, and not overly one sided for either team.

    I haven’t really examined other schools strengths and weaknesses. But, I suspect that Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi State, and some others would be good games for the Mountaineers.
