    Is it a “history of heartbreak” or WVU’s history IS heartbreak?  I can only sigh so many times.

    Definitely a project outside our available time, but is WVU’s history worse than other schools, or is it just because we are more familiar with WVU?

    #92246

    Of course it’s no worse than others, It’s just ours.

    We know WVU history.  WVU has been closer to championships than many schools.  Texas Tech made the final 4 this season for the first time, WVU has been there several times.  Still many schools who have never made it.  Football had a basic national   championship game in 1989 and Major Harris  had a separated shoulder the 3rd play of game.  Who knows what have happened if he has stayed healthy but I think there was a good chance of WVU winning.  Never will understand the 2007 Pitt game that cost them a championship game.

    Those with the sudden dramatic endings tend to hurt more.

    Tremaine Mack is certainly the most deflating I can recall.

    13-9 just had that weird feel throughout… surreal almost.

    The Louisville comeback in Elite 8 was a gradual wave where the ending was coming  into focus before overtime.

    4th down Kellen Winslow hurt as much as any non scoring play I can recall.

    I will say the 31-31 game was among the hardest to take and as destructive to a team as I’ve seen. While not as good as the 88 team the 89 squad underachieved terribly following that collapse.
