That said, assuming we go 3-0, we can easily afford one loss and make the playoff. If we are 8-0, we will need to go 4-1 in those final games plus the big 12 title game. Not saying that that will happen but if we play our cards right we could afford one loss

I used to be all for the challenging OOC schedule. It’s fun, and it probably makes us better. When Washington got selected for the playoff in 2016 that all got blown up. They beat one ranked foe, got massacred by another but went 12-1 and backdoored into the playoff. Penn st, Michigan and many others were vastly superior. But PSU went 10-2. They beat like 5 ranked opponents but lost in Ann Arbor without their entire defense and lost to a decent Pitt team on the last play. Penn st was 2 TDS better than Washington, as were many teams that year, but because PSU played somebody with a heartbeat, even as meager as Pitt, they missed out. Had they played Washington’s schedule they’d have been 13-0. The lesson is have some preseason hype and play nobody and you will get in over a really good team with one or two losses. I love playing marquee OOC games, but if we played Marshall, Kent St and YSU and went 8-1 in League play, regardless of how weak the league was that year, we and anyone else would almost always make the playoff

I’ve been listening to a lot of CFB talk on sirius...a week ago they broke down the “big” opening weekend games. They were laughing at our game and wondering if we will win by 35 or 50. They think Tennessee is a 3-4 win team and this is a mismatch. So did the national show last Sunday...total laugher, non-competitive.

I don’t get the “win by 10 if we get an early turnover” thinking. This isn’t TCU in Ft. Worth we are talking about, this is a team that was only superior to kansas among P5 programs last year. We better, and will win, by 28+

I bought Phil Steele’s magizine yesterday and I put a lot of stock into what he says. He has us 4th in the league but says we can definitely win it and the difference between us TCU and UT is minuscule, and can easily see us 11-1 or 7-5. He also has Sinkfield as our feature back, which is interesting because he rates McKoy as the 24th best RB there is among sophomores and up. One silver lining from the Grier injury is we ran the wildcat with a lot of success with McKoy. I’d like to see that wrinkle from time to time


I'm gonna try my damnest to not get so emotionally invested in this season just because I know it could be great or bad. Will it work? Probably not. It's honestly a vicious cycle.


Why not get invested? Life is too short not to. I turned 35 last week. I’m hoping for 50 more years. WVU has legitimately competed for a national title in 88, 93, 07, and fringe competed in 96, 08. That’s 5 times if we are being generous in my life, once every 7 years and I wasn’t a fan till 2000. So I realistically have 7 seasons where we can compete for a playoff appearance in a 4 game playoff, maybe 1 or 2 times we will make it in my life. If it goes to 8 or 16 maybe more. But I’m hopeful this can be one of those years. The offense will score a ton as long as Grier stays healthy. The starting 11 is fine on defense, and the kicking can’t be worse. To me the key is going to be health to our regulars on defense. A light year on the injury front on the defensive side will make us hard to beat. But by all means, get emotionally invested. It is the spice of life

Here's some interesting stuff from Blue-Gold News, posted a few days ago:

"West Virginia’s offense is getting so much hype that it’s hard to believe any Mountaineer on that side of the football is going under the radar.

After all, nearly three-quarters of WVU’s offensive starters were named to Big 12 preseason first- (quarterback Will Grier, receiver David Sills, center Matt Jones and tackle Yodny Cajuste) or second-team (running back Kennedy McKoy, receiver Gary Jennings, tackle Colton McKivitz and all-purpose Marcus Simms) by Lindy’s or Athlon preseason preview magazines.

But two Mountaineer offensive players who haven’t gotten a whole lot of outside attention are garnering a great deal of praise from West Virginia’s coaches this summer. Thus WVU fans should pay particular attention to senior tight end Trevon Wesco and redshirt freshmen running back Alec Sinkfield.

At 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds, Wesco has the size to be an excellent blocking tight end, and the former Musselman (W.Va.) High School quarterback also has the athletic ability to be a factor in the pass game. Coaches have cited his leadership skills, and they also have noted that his work ethic in the past six months has really improved his all-around tight end play.

As for Sinkfield, he’s not especially big at 5-foot-9 and 186 pounds. But the youngster from Delray Beach, Fla., reportedly has a toughness that belies his size. He’s also getting acclaim for his speed, his ball skills and attitude. Despite the presence of more experienced backs like Kennedy McKoy and Martell Pettaway on WVU’s depth chart, Sinkfield is going to make a major push for the starting job heading into the 2018 season.

* * * * * * *

The Mountaineer football team added a couple walk-on cornerbacks to its roster recently.

Barry Moreland comes to WVU after having spent two years at Central Lakes College in Staples, Minn. A 5-foot-11, 194-pound cornerback, Moreland amassed 57 tackles and five interceptions in his two junior college seasons. Moreland is a native of Zion, Ill.

West Virginia also added Jaelen Gross. A 6-foot-2, 176-pound native of Lusby, Md., Gross was a dual-threat quarterback at Patuxent High School, but also saw action at receiver during his prep career. He will line up at cornerback for the Mountaineers.

Only time will tell how much either Moreland or Gross play for the Mountaineers, but the two walk-ons certainly provide depth to the cornerback position. WVU now has eight cornerbacks on its roster, six of whom are scholarship players. West Virginia could potentially add another cornerback before the start of preseason camp in August, as it is still waiting on UCLA grad transfer Denzel Fisher, who is finishing up graduation requirements."

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

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
