Not as silly as the Monmouth game thread.

My only prediction is that there will be a remote control sized hole in the wall above the TV if a WVU punt returner muffs a punt.

Tie breakers only apply to bowl selection, we'd be co-champions. So much for the "One True Champion" they've been throwing out all season.


I looked at that and didn't find a solid answer, but some of the Big 12 documents read as if it determines a champion, not just the bowl selection. If not, then not having a single champion is totally f tarded. Why miss out on a chance to boost a team into the playoff?

Saw this in the comments of a random news story and it made me think...

The Grand Jury system requires a prosecutor to explain, to a panel of regular citizens, why law enforcement believes a crime was committed. This system does not work when the suspected criminal is a member of law enforcement.


There are all kinds of problems with the way this prosecutor handled the grand jury proceedings. The grand jury does not hear all of the evidence. They hear evidence showing guilt, then decide whether there is probable cause to indict and require the accused to present a defense and present the exculpatory evidence at trial. In this case the prosecutor presented all of the evidence, which is stepping outside his role as prosecutor and giving a stamp of approval to exculpatory evidence. He also didn't explain the law, and how the evidence supports the elements of each charge. He just threw seven months of evidence at the grand jury with no explanation of what the law requires. This is made even more troubling in light of his refusal to recuse himself because his father was a police officer who was killed by a black assailant in the line of duty, and his family is filled with police officers. Don't say the justice system worked. It might have, but we won't know because it wasn't followed.

If both Baylor and TCU win out, then Baylor is conference champion and might jump TCU. The first tie breaker in a two team tie is head to head.

Not a clue, but in this case the fired head coach is the guy who is talking. He's bringing up all the stuff he did, and has implicated Cogdell as part of it as well.

So if they wanted to investigate, he could make it pretty easy on them.


He is a real oddity. He implicates himself more than anyone else with regard to engaging in activity that typically would make him less credible, such as falsifying records, but yet the fact that he comes forward and includes himself might make him more credible. I don't know what to make of him.

I don't know specifically the NCAA Clearinghouse process or standards, but I would guess they don't use the same standard as the court of public opinion. In other words, I don't think they can refuse to clear someone based on falsified grades without evidence that the person's grades were actually falsified. I think they would have some legal problems if they just assumed that the grades were falsified because another player for the same team had grades that were shown to be falsified.

Has the coach specifically identified other players whose grades were falsified?

We shouldn't lose to Iowa State. If we do it might be the worse loss of Danas career.

If we don't have the motivation, after last years 31-7 blown lead, to go to Iowa State and kick the **** out of them, then this team and staff just doesn't have a pulse.

We should easily win by multiple TDs. Way more talented with way more motivation.


Now I have to re-block that nightmare out of my memory.

This team needs to give the Cyclones or birds or whatever the f@#$ Iowa State's mascot is a total full on curb stomping so their dipsh!t fans don't keep coming on the Couch and telling us how alike we are and what a good rivalry it would be. Unless they mean they prepare their collective ani to be pulverized every year, then they can screw themselves sideways. I am usually happy with a win, but these folks need to be shown the light.

Someone brought up Brady Hoke on this board recently, and while their argument was "Michigan fired Rich Rod too soon we don't want to fire Dana too soon and end up with Brady Hoke who won a Sugar Bowl with Rich Rods players and has been awful since then" they failed to realize that Dana won an Orange Bowl with Stews players and is 17-19 since then.

Brady Hoke in that time frame is 20-17. He's been better than Dana.

Oh I know you're going to say "Well Hoke didn't have to change conferences" and "Well its the Big 10" and "Michigan gets better players" and etc etc etc. Still has been better than Dana in that span and yet Dana "A-OK" with a ton of you and Hoke is a national joke.

Something is amiss with that.


It seems amiss to you because you won't look at the context of the record. The overall state of the program is more important than just wins and losses when you are talking about changing the coach. Ollie didn't renew Stewart's contract looking to the future of the program, not because of his past record.

It is funny that people call it an annual meltdown after essentially 3 seasons in a new conference that is significantly stronger and deeper than the previous conference. If they switched the OOC schedule to the end of the season, would it be an annual late season improvement when WVU beats the OOC opponents?

If you are going to judge Holgorsen's performance, at least consider the context. Just looking at his record doesn't tell the whole story. Moving to the Big 12 required a massive rebuilding effort, from staff to players to facilities to everything in the program. It isn't as simple as comparing his record to Stewart's or Rod's or whomever. You can reach whatever conclusion you want, but consider the true circumstances. For me, I think it has taken some time for Holgs to figure out WVU's new landscape. Initially he made some bad decisions with staff and recruiting, but I think he figured it out. I like the way the team is playing and think they are improving year to year. The staff is really good (with one glaring exception). The recruiting seems to be improving every season. I think the future looks good. Not Alabama great, but good, and potentially very good.

Even this thread will become an argument over whether Huggs should be fired.

The ranking right now is nice, great to be noticed, but means nothing and if you were to get right down to it I'm willing to bet we're not really the 21st best team in the nation. A soft early schedule, and then beating defending champs (who might also be a bit overrated) on National TV got us the ranking.

Thats just reality, but its good to recognized early and if we can get better, and we still need to get better, then we could really be talking about something special.


The benefit of the national ranking early is that you stay ahead of the teams behind you so long as you keep winning. It really doesn't mean anything given that the season is so early, and I agree WVU is probably not the 21st best team in the country right now. But if they keep winning, they will be treated like it or better in the media or the polls if they keep moving up.

Huggs said some interesting things last night, first of which that made me excited is he said these guys still don't know what they're doing half the time. Just playing off of effort but haven't come close to mastering the system Huggs is trying to use.

Could you imagine what that press would look like once everyone masters it?



He said they had only started practicing the press a couple of days before the tournament or something like that. If WVU can make UConn throw the ball to nobody that many times without knowing what they are doing, heaven help teams once they figure it out.

SchmittBReal,
He didn't guard Staten in the first half they were hedging Staten to keep him from getting to the middle of the floor. Forcing Staten to take jumpers which he was knocking down. He shut Staten down when he was guarding him straight up man in the second half, he kept him from getting the ball on several trips down the floor. Then some reason Ollie switched and put Samuel on Staten and he killed him late in the game. Also a lot of Statens points came late in the game from the line. The only thing I could think is that Ollie was worried Boatright would get in foul trouble.


Or ... Staten made him look silly jumping into his own player while Staten pulled back for a jumper. It was after that play that they made the switch.
