This is the dumbest thread I think Ive seen on here. Talkoption thinks we should change the name to be more politically correct and not encourage couch burning. TheMAC is telling us all how great NJ is and how great the students are.

WTF is going on today?


It is a lesson in picking bad battles. I think we should petition the state legislature to change the slogan to "mild and wonderful." That would tame some of those hellions.

Two things:

1. The season is not over by a long shot. Not many teams will go undefeated. The games will narrow the field.

2. There is a greater likelihood that a conference championship game will eliminate a team from the playoffs than there is that not playing the extra game will. One of the teams must lose, and it is a de facto playoff game already.

Yes, the must ignite this couch part anyway.

Suggestions like We must win this game, are good for provoking ridicule and perhaps a good ass kicking.

Ok. I take it all back. I am advocating people to actually burn couches. But just yours.

Is that wrong?


Go ahead. My couch couldn't be more incriminating. You would be doing me a favor.

This is the most troglodytic team in the NCAA.

I think discussions of my juice will make more people uncomfortable than the name of this site will.

But no, there's no name change coming. Obviously I just inherited the name so am not the one to have chosen it. I don't presume to know the original thinking behind it but to me the name is kind of a comical, symbolical statement on the passion that WVU fans have for our teams and the state as a whole. It's not an encouragement for anyone to commit property damage. To me, If's in the same spirt as actual school sponsored cheers and slogans that talk about about violence. How many school songs include phrases along the lines of "go! fight! win!"? They're not advocating actual fighting any more than this site is advocating actually burning a couch.



Whatever you need to tell yourself to sleep at night.

Did anyone notice the comment Holgorsen made about the defensive scheme of not sitting back but attacking? He said something to the effect that the defense would not have had that attacking scheme last year but rather would have sat back and given on a lot of those passes. I took it as, in part a recognition of the lack of experience last season and kind of a dig against Patterson.


Holgorsen has wanted a defense that attacks and causes turnovers since he got here. This defense hasn't gotten there yet, but I think it is on the way. They are certainly attacking. I think turnovers will come.

As i undertand it there was atleast one overturned this weekend.


Don't believe it. I saw a picture of one that was SUPPOSED to have happened in morgantown:

See if this is what you saw.

www.boston.com/news/local/new- ... s2KsPj5SaArPLI/story.html

I saw destruction and that is not good but I also saw police firing tear gas cannisters into the crowd of people and what looked like paintballs.

I agree with others on here. Let the students rush the field and carry the goal post to wherever and be done with it.


I have seen that picture of the people on the overturned car on Twitter being attributed to WVU students. That is messed up.

I don't think Ok State is a top 25 team right now. They aren't the same team that played FSU tough. They have too many injuries, especially on offense, and are playing a lot of younger players. I just hope we don't go to Stillwater and lay an egg.

The WVU D and Riddick were given a helmet sticker on College Football Final.

Edit: And Riddick was named Walter Camp player of the week.

TCU just beat Ok State 42-9. I think that puts WVU tied for 2nd in the conference.

Sorry. I overreacted to someone's silly post about how our coach is learning the basics of football. I happen to think he is building a quality program that will be better than it has ever been, which requires that he at least understand the fundamentals. Again, sorry and I don't mean to take anything away from the win. I am going to put myself in time out for 15 minutes.

Maybe we have a thread for chicken littles and a thread for the rest of us. It will be like the kid's table at Thanksgiving.
