College dwarfs pros in the number of teams and players they have. I agree, no way they follow the pro lead.
I was in KC for the men’s tournament. Attended the opening round Wednesday and during the first game we learned no fans the rest of the tournament. Next morning we learned no tournament. I still think they could played the tournament with fans and no ill effects.June 24, 2020 at 2:25 pm in reply to: WVU Hoops’ Itch To Return Countered By Health Concerns #118582
Every team is in the same place. Nothing unique about WVU there. It is not just athletes who have the itch to get back to something close to normal. Many people around the world have that itch.
It is a messy situation. With no evidence likely we will probably never know who is accurate about the Carpenter-Martin talk.
The investigation should bring more clarity to what happened between Koenning and Martin because there had to be others who saw or heard things.
Bowl seemed to mean more to fans then than they do now.
Not the best WVU team of the era but still fun to watch.

Sports history is littered with roads not taken. We could go back to 1953 when a bunch of teams left the Southern Conference to form the ACC. What would have happened if WVU has been able to go with Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, and Wake Forest? I think that would have been better for WVU that their remaining years in the Southern Conference,April 20, 2020 at 5:55 pm in reply to: Mountaineer Memories: Top 10 WVU Coliseum contests #116169
Nice walk down memory lane.March 27, 2020 at 6:39 pm in reply to: Best WVU QB For Clutch Situation? Nehlen Shares Thoughts #115060
So much depends on opponent. Might want a different opponent for a different opponent. For that reason I go with the QB who could do the job in more than one way. Harris would have been better with a better team around him but for they did on the field I would go with White
Strong non-conference schedule. Team should well tested by the time conference games start.March 23, 2020 at 2:43 pm in reply to: WVU Special Teams Outlook: A Couple Of Big Pairs Of Shoes To Fill #114873
Special teams are often overlooked by many but they can make the difference between winning or losing many games. Placekickers should be fine. The other areas are wait and see.
The future looks promising but this year’s team should not had the slump they did. They had games where they looked like they could anybody and others where they looked that could not beat anyone. Need to put a full season of good games like Kansas does.March 9, 2020 at 6:08 pm in reply to: WVU’s Jermaine Haley Restores Calm, Spurs WVU Win Over Baylor #114059
Senior leadership can make a difference in March. Haley seems to play with a calm which means he rarely makes mistakes by playing too fast,March 8, 2020 at 2:40 pm in reply to: Matthews Shows Off, Shows Out For Mother In Win Over Baylor #113968
Mathews is great when he puts his game together. Now he has to start doing that more often.
Exchanged e-mails with a friend in the athletic dept. I wrote the only WVU team I could remember with such a late season swoon was the 2012 football team that started 5-0 and finished 7-5. He responded that 2012 football team had no defense and this years basketball team has no offense.February 27, 2020 at 7:35 pm in reply to: Dearth Of Scoring A Theme On WVU Landscape This Season #112927
Does seem odd to have offense outage across so many sports. To me the biggest disappointment is the men’s basketball team. It looks like the talent is there to score more but isn’t happening.
I think most of the bad passes come from a lack of understanding the game, Some are thrown too early, others too late. If one players was always at fault it might be skill but hard to imagine several players who can’t throw a good pass. I see the big need as good point guard.
This team is a mystery. At times they look like they can beat anyone and then then at other times they look like they can’t beat anyone.
The only think I know is that after Haley’s shot it looked a very different WVU team than the one that played the 19.59 minutes.
The best players do not let their offense affect their defense.
