Looks like ESPN has us projected for a 6-6 season this year. Feels a little low to me in the win column but I can't see how we are in the conference championship. Texas and Baylor should both be better but Texas will be a hard game. Unless we get the D lineman from Clemson I don't see how our D is any better than last year. The offense has to do 40/game like others have said or it's another long year.


It’s funny, the literal same day the headline on ESPN CFB page was that our offense will be the best in America. Then below that was the FPI which slates ya at 6-6 and 36th in the country. Meanwhile all their rankings outside of FPI had us as high as 11th and no lower than 18th (nearly every preseason site has us 12-20). So we shall see. If we truly were 10th or 11th I’d say with the losses of some DL guys we are closer to 20th right now. But with wins against UT and NCSU (which will be tougher IMO) we will be 10th when League play starts. My expectation is for us to play in the B12 title game. My dream is the playoff. I’d say based on the roster and the schedule we go 9-3 and finish 2nd or 3rd in the league

The guy is a body who is a former 5*. If he can reach 1/4 of his talent combined with Stills it will be a big help. Probably need another transfer too to provide bodies

I think there is zero chance Sags leaves, and a small chance Esa leaves. Can definitely see Bender walking. Hunter is already gone

Anyone know if we have any sholarships available to hand our this summer/spring to transfers or grads? I’d love to bring in a guard with experience to ease the burned on McCabe/Beetle/ the kid who was hurt. There are some good ones out there

It appears that McDougal has indeed transferred.

Hey I weight 230 and can easily get up to 245...maybe I can play DL this year.

Boy oh boy Stills better be GOOD

The problem with the Allen argument is every time he was put in the other team when right at him on the defensive end.


Yes, but I don’t think you get better by being glued to the bench. And his defense has improved. Sure, wild horses need tamed, but I think they went about it wrong. He’s a better player than Ahmad and West. I’d love and die with Teddy before either of those two, though they both played ok last night

All you guys who rag on Huggs and think he’s a poor coach, you are just plain wrong.


I agree. Hugs is a future HOF coach and he has us in the national spotlight every year. He has us in the tourney almost every year, and anybody who gets into the field of 64 has a chance to win it all. This year, I am pretty darn sure that I was able to watch every WVU BB game on national TV here in SC. That is something that I do not recall ever happening before.
My only regret about him is that he is in his mid-60's and who knows how much longer he will be coaching. It takes a heck of a lot of searching and just plain blind luck to find a young up and comer to take the place of a guy like him. Frankly, we have been spoiled. The good news is, we apparently have him for at least another couple of years.


Not that we’re having this conversation right now, but Huggs has put us in a position that when he hangs it up, we will be able to attract just about anyone we want, within reason. I think he goes 2 more years, 3 maybe. I think the two leading contenders to replace him (though I would like to see them be HC in D1, even low-major) would be Patty B or Darris Nichols

Geez will you all lay off the teddy Allen thing. Hugs is making him play hugs game. Look at Oklahoma and Trey young....they let him run wild and ended up losing a bunch of games. Allen will either conform and play or he won't and sit.


But who did he “learn” at the expense of? We lost cause he didn’t play more. Forget tonight. Maybe if he plays 10 more minut s in the regular season we win 2 more games and are a 3 or a 2 and someone else beats Nova. I’m sure 2 & 4 are glad he learned a hard lesson at their expense

Don’t want to fire bob. Love him. But his handling of teddy cost us a final 4


Cometely disagree with Swim and Pride. Swim Allen will be great but we cant have players not listening to Huggs. Imagine if you had those kinds at work, you would suffer.

Pride, youre just an idiot. You make some of the worst comments on this board.

Allen is going to be good but just because he sat some this year does not mean he would have saved our season. He committed too many fouls and was at times out of control. Other Freshmen get the redshirt but at least he ayed. Huggs knows what he is doing


Respect you, but you’re wrong. I coach, and everyone worried about who the final player on the floor is, or who the 4th swimmer on the relay is vs the 5th swimmer. And everyone focuses on the swimmer who doesn’t get on the relay or the 6th player on the floor. It’s baloney and unfair to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd player to bench the 5th player for the 6th. They only get so many cracks at it. That’s how I coach. Cleary Bob is different. He deserves this job and should keep it. I’d have done it different

In the end the big stat was us shooting close to 50% in the first half and then shooting close to 30% in the second half. I agree with the sentiments in regards to the foul calls in the second half but we missed way too many shots in the last 7 minutes and that's how the game ultimately slipped away from us.

Congrats to Miles and Carter - they will be sorely missed next year.


You are 100000% correct. We’re 2/3 of those early fouls Ticky tack? Yes. They would have shot FT’s 1:00 later. We had 5 wide open looks for 3 from the corner in this game and I counted 1 we hit. They had 7 and they hit 5 by my count. That’s the difference .

I don’t hate Nova. Always liked Wright and the old big east. But we need to adapt

44-42. If you told me that at 7:00 I’d take it. JC has done very little offensively. Dilly dilly

Nervous as **** right now. No matter what happens I’ve enjoyed the ride with everyone on here this year. I pray it continues. I’m sure some of us will say things we don’t mean...it’s the nature of this ****. Let’s **** go

I was wavering on the press, buying into the narrative hat nobody can press Nova and they’ll eat it alive.

Maybe. But has anyone ever tried? They’ve never seen what we’re going to throw at them, and when we really turn it up we are incapacitating. Everyone assumes they’ll be fine, but the truth is we don’t know how they will react till they face it. Maybe they handle it and beat us 90-65. Maybe they can’t and we win 80-65. The assumed reaction to our press is a false narrative

I think we should abandon the press for this game. Though Nova hasn’t seen it, i doubt it will phase their guards. Go 1-3-1 or extended the way they did around half court. They may shoot the lights out against the 1-3-1, or expose us underneath if we extend but I think it’s worth a shot.

Of course, if we play that way we lower our fast break offense and have to play more half court, which could be a problem unless we are shooting well. Now I’m contradicting myself...oh well I’m not the coach.

My key stat: hold them under 50% and we shoot above 45% from the field. If we can do that we will have a great chance to win
