My spidy-senses tell me you're not familar with resin...


You are right, resin doesn't work. I couldn't think of anything that would relate having a ball slip out of your hands to smoking weed. There is nothing really slippery about smoking weed so nothing worked and I went with resin. Hindsight is 20/20.

Carry on ...

Rick Petino is scum and I hope he loses his job. But then Dick Vitale said he passed a lie detector test so he must not have known anything about it! This one's not over. They're in panic mode. Guarantee when and if the NCAA gives its report it will be bad. I would believe the Madame seven days to Sunday before I'd believe that scum



The NCAA is part of the problem here! Their investigation is completely flawed. They STILL haven't interviewed Rick Pitino. How can they honestly say they are looking into this properly when they don't interview the "CEO" of the company that did wrong? I am no investigator but even I know step one is to interview EVERYONE in the situation while minds are fresh and to help find and inconsistencies later on. I am sure that as time passes Pitino's memory of past incidents won't get any worse right? I mean isn't it human nature to recall things better the further in the past they are?

The NCAA is the most hypocritical, inconsistent, and inefficient organization ever known to man. the NCAA made $989 million in 2014...tax free!! They hide under the guise of "education for the kids" and they are the most corrupt group of people outside of Washington.


If you investigating someone, you interview them last. You interview everyone who is in a position to implicate them, find out what they have to say, verify it, then ask the person you are investigating about it what they have to say about it. That way you know when they are lying, and have the complete picture in front of you while you are talking to them. If he wants to lie, he will be just digging his own grave.

We took 18 more shots than Kansas...and made one less!


Just sayin'....


For the record, WVU was +18 in shots, +8 in offensive rebounds, +5 in turnover margin and -10 on the scoreboard. (Damn those pesky facts!)


Kansas +6 on three-pointers

Kansas +6 on free throws

Kansas -2 on two-pointers

+6 +6 -2 = +10 point margin of victory


So if I hear you right, and I think I do, a team is only awarded points if the basketball actually makes it through the basket.

Like I said in the other thread, if you don't vote "1st," then you can GFU.

Anybody else notice how the ball will just fly out of Daxter's hands sometimes? It happened once last night when he was going up to try a layup and I'm pretty sure nobody touched the ball. He got the ball back and scored.

In other games, I've seen him come down with a rebound with 2 hands and the ball just flies out of his hands with nobody touching it.


He must have resin on his hands. Or bong water. It is slippery.

Yes, Yes I did. If he was actually on the basketball team, then he could use it. Now, if he is a player, then I stand corrected. Carry on.


What if he is a playa?

We gotta win all three sides of the ball.

BTW - if a football has three sides, how many sides are there to a basketball?

With all due respect, I don't read this as proof of your hypothesis that shooting is less important than possessions. It actually disproves it. His statement makes it clear that WVU needs more possessions BECAUSE THEY SHOOT POORLY. I don't think anyone you are arguing disagrees with what Huggins is saying. They all seem to be saying the same thing.

Thanks Mounty at least you get the point. EERS said I said black women were sluts and I was calling for less black people on earth or something.


No I didn't. What I said was that your post read more like you were saying black women were sluts and you wanted less black people in the world than it did your explanation of what you were trying to say. I don't know wtf you meant because it wasn't particularly well drafted. It was a mess.

BTW. Your misstating what I said, and taking it out of the context of the conversation, then citing that bogus statement as proof that provably false right wing talking points are true reinforces the fact that the right wing cannot win on the facts, so they use logical fallacies and make up "facts" to support their stereotypes and dogma. Your logic is based on misrepresentation layered on misrepresentation layered on logical fallacies and unsupported conclusions. Perhaps you should just admit that what you wrote wasn't particularly clear and leave it at that.

Edit: and your box of condoms solution is really patronizing and pretty ignorant. Are you saying the problem is too many blacks? Or is the problem a lack of male role models and father-child relationships? Because you appear to be saying the latter but solving it by simply eliminating the child rather than creating an environment that fosters better relationships.

Jeez, it's getting to be like a room full of junior high cheerleaders in here with the cliquish groups targeting each other.

How about we actually read posts before we disagree (as in don't just see the avatar of the poster and say - they're stupid).

How about every thread doesn't have to be good Dana/bad Dana?

How about every thread doesn't have to be good SkyHo/bad SkyHo?

And then mix in the trivial, I hate him so I have to tell him he's stupid, and then my girls can jump in and laugh.

DeViNe2WvU, I agree with most of how you and others restated what you said, we can pick and choose players that aren't as heavily recruited...but that's half the class or less.

We're not gonna run Ferns off because he isn't a prototypical 3-3-5 LB are we? Hell NO! We scramble for all the talent we can get...duh, girls...did anyone say anything about "begging"?

Embellish much?

But did you notice that with over half our recruits (most of the ones we had to "compete" for), we made sure that WVU was the last place they visited before signing day? We even used a snowstorm to score brownie points. Hustling and trying hard isn't begging.

This class looks better to me on film than on paper. There's some under-rated talent there. Some of the SPARQ scores are pretty impressive as well. I do wish we could've added a couple more highly rated linemen, but then again, I'll probably always wish for that.

Eers88 - you disagree with pretty much everything I say...WTF else is new? Gather the rest of the girls, make a few jokes and point and giggle. That's how it's done, right?

Can we just talk/disagree about football without being disagreeable?


I was talking football. You are the one calling people girls and taking/making it personal.

Lets call it like it is, this is not a good recruiting class, Prob Dana's worst since his first year. Goal should be to be between 20 and 30 in rankings, not barely top 40. Plus another year where I don't see a decently touted QB. Need more Florida players.


You can't judge the class until 5 years from now. Only then will we know how good it was.

You're kidding right? We are West Virginia. We don't have the luxury to pick and choose. We try to get in any crack for every exceptional athlete we can find. We are not gonna win many battles against the SEC or other power 5 giants. We have to recruit harder...and hope.

We did very well with this class.

We pulled some heavily recruited guys.
We pulled some moderately recruited guys.
We took a chance on a few.

Harbaugh has the luxury to pick and choose.
We scrap for every quality athlete we can get.
If we can "pick" for our identity, where are the 3 4-5 star offensive linemen and 3 4-5 star defensive linemen to level us with Baylor?

We did well(better than 34th or 36th IMO), but don't get carried away...yet.


I don't think your math is right. You are correct that WVU isn't going to compete with OU, Texas, Notre Dame and Ohio State to sign 5 star players, but I disagree with pretty much everything else you said. You have it backwards. There are only a handful of 5 stars, so the school's competing for them don't have the luxury to pick and choose. The competition for those players is fierce. The market is very small, and it is a seller's market. On the other hand, there are many three star recruits so WVU can pick and choose which best fit the system. Of course, they need to coach them up, but that is a different issue. WVU isn't begging kids to come, and they have a full class every year. In the three star market WVU is positioned to be selective, so they are better positioned to pick system players.

Look at the basketball team. Most of the players are three star recruits. Yet, they outplay teams with higher rated recruits. It isn't a matter of individual skill set. It is a matter of mentality. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts because they have the mentality to work hard in Huggins' system.

I just meant everyone is accounted for. I didn't mean we were out of room. Unless there is a surprise, we shouldn't be getting any more LOI's today.
