Considering WVU has more turnovers, more fouls, hasn't taken a foul shot and this is on the road it is hard to be upset being tied going into the half. Gotta love KU getting 12 foul shots to 0 for WVU because it isn't as if Kansas doesn't play really physical or anything.

Esa needs to get it together and they all need to cut down on the turnovers and Konante needs to somehow never come off the court. Routt and Bender are terrible and neither can play in this type of game. When Sags is on the bench this is a drastically different team.

Quality win and good to see guys like Dax, Teddy, and Beetle each have a big game. If these guys can just all keep rolling into March this team can go far. Good bounce-back win.

Even in a win that was a horribly officiated game but at least it didn't result in a ton of foul shots and a point swing in TCU's favor. TCU is all grabbing and mugging and walking and not getting called for it.

Carter's guy was all over him how did they not call that a foul? He was getting mugged.

I didn't get to watch this, I've only seen the highlights. Only scoring 25 2nd half points it is a shock that WVU won, especially since OU made 11 more free-throws.

The highlights and stats would say that Esa and Lamont are coming back into their own. Esa looks to have his mojo back and Lamont found his shot again. If Bolden can continue to be a 9-10 point a night contributor and Dax can get his game back and Jevon and Sags continue to be Jevon and Sags this team can still go far. Not saying they won't drop more games but if they had to slump I'm glad it was mid-season rather than heading into March like they have in previous years.

Oklahoma might as well rename themselves Trey Young for this season, because without him that team sucks dick. Seriously, they might be a 10 win team without him.

Eery- I kinda agree but, I’m thinking his performance, in the bowl game, was more on the coaches than he. I just don’t think our coaching staff has the ability or imagination to adapt to our players strengths.


I agree that it's more on the coaching staff than Chugs. Not so much in getting a game plan for him, but for the fact they recruited him to begin with. I may be wrong, but I don't think he had any other FBS offers?

I like what Dana has been doing and the direction of the program. But the inability to recruit, other through transfers, a decent FBS caliber QB is an obvious issue. Millard, Chugs, Childress all are scrub qbs at the FBS level. That QB from Liberty when we played them a few years back was waaayyy better than those three.


I will completely agree with your opinion on "inability to recruit" however; a good coaching staff adapt to the players strengths and calling plays accordingly. For example - how did VT start a freshman but, made him look like a red shirt senior? I am not even going to answer that. Then there is our coaching staff who has Chugs throw 45 yard passes when he can't hit a mini van at 40. So, lets have him instead throw what he can. Play to his strengths, not his weaknesses. It is pretty simple, while Chugs was in high school he had someones eye and had to have some ability or he wouldn't have been recruited, right? Or is it, he didn't have much in abilities and our coaching staff is way worse than anyone knows.

I'm no football coach but, I can surely see what works and what doesn't, when you find something that works stick with it until it is no longer effective. As I saw it we kept on calling the same plays that did not work but, we continued. This all lies at the feet of our coaches. Matter of fact - this is similar to how our previous coaching staff tried to make Pat White a pocket passer.


I love seeing the statement "inability to recruit" when I'm seeing talent all over the field and guys getting drafted year in and year out. Just because a player transfers to WVU doesn't mean he wasn't recruited. It is not as if Will Grier and Jack Allison were forced to come to WVU, they were recruited to come to WVU, why does it matter that they had a stop before WVU? I also love how everyone applauds Dana and his staff for finding the "gems" like Carl Joseph, Wendell Smallwood, Kevin White, etc and being able to develop them into NFL talent but an under-the-radar QB prospect that doesn't pan out and some of the fans want to act like it is a chronic program-wide issue.

Have any of you guys that are so quick to point out the lack of quality QB's on the roster in any given year ever stopped to think that QB is one of the most sought after and coveted positions in all of college football? That on any given year there are less than 20 truly "elite" QB prospects in any given class? Ever think about the fact that there are 130 FBS teams competing for those guys? Until the state of WV starts to produce elite level QB's I don't expect WVU to be super high on any elite QB's list when many of them come from TX, FL and CA.

I would be perfectly happy if WVU was cycling 4 and 5 star QB's that WVU picked up from transfer for the rest of time as long as they come in, play well and win games. I don't understand why the hell it makes a bit of difference to any of us where the kids come from and what stops they've had along the way so long as they are good players that win games.

And if you're wondering why Josh Jackson looked so good against WVU you must not have watched any VT games after they played us. He was a garbage QB that only looked decent against WVU because the WVU defense was one of the worst units in the nation, just nobody knew it at that point. VT actually pulled him from a few games to give other guys a shot. He sucked, their offense as a whole sucked and somehow WVU's defense sucked that much worse. VT was lucky to have the defense they had last year.

Gottcha, you take their word and I'll go with the direct words from the coach.

If there was direct disrespect from Teddy towards a coach, why wouldn't Huggins come out with that info? Maybe he should so that fans like me, and pretty much everyone else doesn't have to " read between the lines" of the actual quotes of the coach? Hmmmmmmm...?

Stop getting on Huggs for benching Allen!!!! Allen disrespected an assistant coach and Huggs needs to train these guys for life too and not worry about wins all the time. He benched Allen when Ahmad came back though...shouldn’t be much of a drop off, right? Oh wait...Ahmad sucks


I haven't heard or read anything about this, and google doesn't seem to shed any light either. Nothing I have read or herd from anyone surrounding the program is that it is his "attitude". Maybe you're in the locker room or really close to the program, or something, and have some insight that nobody else seems to have, if so, thanks for clearing that up for us.

Meanwhile, all I've been able to find is that he has had an attitude problem. A direct quote from Huggins in fact says so much : "I think like most 18- and 19-year-olds, you have some success and you don't know how to handle it," Huggins said.

"I think that was the root of the problem. He's not a problem off the floor. We don't have problems off the floor. I was sitting there the other day, and I was thinking, 'Those guys I had at Cincinnati who got in trouble all the time were pretty damn good.' It might have been worth it."

Then Huggins was also quoted saying "He doesn't have a choice," Huggins said. "That's the good and the bad of being part of the team. You don't have a choice."

The article then goes on the state "Manipulating playing time to make a point just isn't new. Some players have notably clashed with Huggins and his style, and they transferred. Others responded the way Huggins wanted them to."

After the way things have gone, I wonder where the kid's head is at, and if this is the way Huggins was expecting him to respond. And for the record, a team full of asshole acting freshman just beat ours.

Article to said quotes

Two major events to happen during this skid are Esa returning and Teddy getting benched. I can't say I'm surprised Esa's return has caused some issues because I don't think it is uncommon for a returning player to take time to find a groove and to find his place in the line-up. Hopefully he finds his groove between now and tournament time and he rights the ship.

The Teddy benching has me wondering if that was a case of Huggins butting HIS OWN ego before the team. I have no idea what "too much talking to listen" means, but the kid was on fire, so maybe a little confidence and cockiness was, maybe, okay? Considering how well others who are getting all kinds of playing time are playing/shooting, maybe cockiness is something that's lacking from most of the guys on this team. Carter. Sags and sometimes Bolden are the only ones who play with any confidence but this team needs others to step up.

I'm not saying the season is lost, I'm not saying Esa should go away and I don't think Huggins has lost this team, but I do think there is a combination of things that have happened recently that have caused the once best team in the nation to hit the skids in a really bad way. I think a hall of fame coach should be able to figure it out, but through six games he hasn't. If he can't by time the tournament rolls around then he will need to reevaluate some things because this could be the best team he has had at WVU, and by far the best in 7-8 years. A Final Four could be in reach if he and the players can figure this out.

Nice over-the-back there. The fact that WVU is still shooting 1-and-1 is a real luxury for Kentucky.

Considering how much pushing and shoving Kentucky does, not to mention all the over-the-back they go, for WVU to finally be in the bonus is odd.

When Sags is benched by the refs this team has absolutely no inside presence. Bender sucks. Routt isn't cutting it. The cheap calls on Sags loom so large, he has two fouls maybe to this point but two phantom calls have him riding pine and Kentucky is manhandling the two replacements.

I used to think Carter got the worst BS calls, now I think he AND Konate are the recipients of flat-out terrible calls.

At least they gave it up really quick and early tonight so that I can stop wasting my time watching this team.

#12 is a thug and needs to be ejected. Not only does he overreact, then he tries to go back after him. Kid is an asshole.

Jevon Carter gets the most BS calls called against him.

This is going down as the Kansas game did just a week ago. It's almost as if when the other team matches their intensity they back down. Once they lose control of the game it is nearly impossible for them to respond and get it back.

My take from that half, the refs allowed TCU to travel a few times, called two charges on WVU that were blocks on TCU, a block on WVU that was a charge on TCU, and two bad plays back-to-back by Bolden.

The bed officiating we all expect. It is amazing how one or two bad plays by a player can swing everything. Bolden has his back to his man and allows a wide open 3, then gets fancy with the dribble and looses the bad which leads to a big fast break. Gotta be better than that on both ends.

All-in-all I'm not sure I'm upset with where this is. WVU can adjust better than TCU can. As long as they play under control WVU is by far the better team and Huggins is by far the better coach.

That was a terrible half. Everyone seemed to be waiting for someone else to do something. WVU just hand-wrapped the win to Kansas in the second half, didn't even make them wok for it. If they'e slumping on offense that's one thing, but the defense is usually there but not tonight in the 2nd half. Lamont West was lost and let them have 9-12 uncontested points by being out of position and letting his man get a wide open jumper.

Offensively, what was with all of the careless mistakes? Way too many times guys not ready for passes, careless passes into traffic, letting guys out hustle them for loose balls, letting guys get easy steals, etc. This team is in a funk and it seems Huggins is sitting by and watching it happen.

I think WVU would have benefited from a Wes Harris suspension, it would have forced Huggins to play Teddy Allen, who might have actually been a scorer when WVU really needed one tonight.

It is a shame that a petty good 1st half went to waste. It would be easier to take had Kansas just come in and worked for the win all night instead of just waiting for WVU to wilt and give it to them.
