    Trevon Wesco Round 4 Jets

    David Long Round 6 Titans

    in reply to: Poll: How Many Mountaineers Will Be Drafted? #89870

    6 or 7 so far?

    My math isn’t strong today so don’t hold me to it.

    in reply to: Ask me in 3 years… #89868

    I agree.

     

    NO ONE knows how the draftees will turn out.

     

    Hell, the “experts” didn’t even get most of their mock draft choices right.

     

    A major difference between college and pro talent.

     

    Major Harris didn’t make it. Marc Bulger did. No one would have predicted those two outcomes when the draft was held.

    in reply to: Marcus Simms #88382

    Simms would be a valuable asset for WVU. But I agree with Kevin: It’s more important that Marcus gets Marcus straightened out in the long run. I hope he does. Only then will I hope that he can help the new head coach make WVU a force in the Big 12 and, God can only help, nationally.

    in reply to: Go, Red Raiders! #87925

    Every Big 12 team that wins a game helps WVU’s image when it plays the Big 12 teams.

    It’s take simple to me.

     

    So, Texas Tech, blow away the Final Four and Title Game opponent.

    The guy who got 42 and lost against Virginia caused flashbacks to Jerry West against California in the NCAA title game. Jerry was the first, and maybe the only, MVP choice from a team that didn’t win the title.

    in reply to: Game Thread: West Virginia/Kansas #83153

    WVU may set Big 12 record for most layups allowed in a season.

    Worst season in 20 years.

     

    As painful as it is for me, it must be excrusciating for Huggins.

     

    Make the pain go away.

     

    If coaches can switch schools, why can’t players? It’s not whether we like it, but freedom of choice.

    in reply to: Hertzel-Away fro the political crap! #82797

    It’s tough to comment when we don’t know the full story.

     

    For  Bob and Shane to agree on it makes it pretty serious. When was the last time two starters were kicked off the team?

    in reply to: Game Thread: WVU – Kansas #80549

    At long last Huggins got through. I’ve been waiting all season for the offense to penetrate, not throw up 3’s. Inside work is best of season. Now, let’s keep it up for 2nd half. No letup! Huggins’ way. All the way.

    in reply to: EXPERTS: what's your take? #79904

    Asa also can’t drive and drill a basket, so even when you get him the ball on the run he’s soft in executing his shot. Have you ever seen Asa slam-dunk while being guarded?

    in reply to: NC State new coach #79894

    I have always respected the job that Gibby did at WVU, particularly with the lack of resources and injuries this season.  I wish him well, except for the WVU game.

    The day will come when the new WVU DC will be chastised and Gibby used as a role model for better days. It’s the nature of fans.

    As for me, I just go to Mountaineer Field and enjoy the games as long as I’m ambulatory and above ground. I still consider it the great sports bargain in the world for me.

     

     

    in reply to: Game Thread: WVU – Oklahoma State #79800

    If the rest of the team had half the drive, energy and passion of Beetle then WVU would be 4-0 in the Big 12.

    in reply to: Game Thread: WVU – Oklahoma State #79774

    Never seen a Huggins team miss so many LAYUPS!

    Cowboys surely can’t keep popping in 3’s like they are layups. I can only hope.

    I see evidence of more effort, but this truly is The Gang That Can’t Shoot Straight.

    At least WVU is penetrating inside the 3’s line for a change. That’s a hopeful sign.

    It is painful to watch this team. I know they are trying. And they are trying to watch.

     

     

    in reply to: Assistant coaches #79276

    As usual we’re all reading tea leaves, other than Kevin. That’s historically inaccurate.

    We’ll just to wait till we see Neal Brown in action, particularly in Mountaineer Field.

    I think we’ll ALL be wiser after the James Madison, Missouri, North Carolina State, Kansas and Texas games.

    If WVU is 5-0 the Big 12 title talk will skyrocket.

    If WVU is 2-3 the lynch mob will be buying new rope.

    It’s the nature of fans everywhere.

    He ain’t won 850+ games by being a quitter. I’m thinking he’ll make some lemonade out of the lemons yet. But, like the rest of you I’m true blue & gold and I’m on board this train for the ride. EDIT: Though it is hard on this old backside when the train leaves the tracks, jumps the ditch and takes off through the corn field. 🙂

    GREAT PARTING DESCRIPTION. YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN A SPORTSWRITER, TOO.

    in reply to: WVU – Texas Game Thread #79126

    Painful to watch. Texas penetrates for layups. WVU struggles to get ball to anyone inside the 3-point arc.

    What ranking are you referring to? I Believe Neal Brown is the best choice.

    I”m happy with choice of Brown. If he wins the Big 12 title I’ll be delirious over the choice.

    in reply to: Assistant coaches #79047

    Head coaches understandably bring in their own assistants. I doubt Brown will be different. And I don’t think Lyons, while being consulted, would want to undermine Brown’s choices. I don’t care if Brown brings in Rich or Dana or Mother Theresa if they help WVU win the Big 12.

    Dana is gone but he is #31 among all the coaches in America.

    So if WVU gets a coach who is NOT top 30 then we have traded down. Indisputable.

    Again, I will support Shane Lyons’ coach as I always support any coach or player in WVU blue and gold.  

     

     

    Sporting News ranks top college football coaches for 2018 season.

    WVU lost Dana Holgorsen, who is #31.

    Possible replacements are Neal Brown, #59; Luke Fickell, #100;

     

    Highest ranked Big 12 coach is TCU’s Gary Patterson, #8. Mike Gundy, Oklahoma State, is #15. Lincoln Riley, Oklahoma, #16. Bill Snyder, Kansas State, #20. Tom Herman, Texas, #22.

    Then Dana at #31, despite all the attacks on him on the WVU message boards. Maybe they didn’t know how lucky they were to have Dana.  

     

    6 of top 31 coaches in America in Big 12. That says a lot about how tough it is to win in the Big 12.

    #59 or #100 would have their work cut out for them.
