What is up with that? Are they stealing our cheer or something? I have seen some Chokie fans on FB using "Let's Goooooo..." and couldn't figure out if it was just people who had WVU FB friends and didn't know it was a WVU thang or if they were really bogarting the cheer.


Actually ... and don't take this personally ... you might need a history lesson regarding WVU chants.

Ours was the long and continuous ...

"Let's Gooooooooooo Mountaineeeeeeeers!" [with the fist thrusting into the air]

Long before it was the responding back and forth ...

"Let's Go!" "Mountaineers!"

I believe we modified the "We are" from Marshall.

Blasphemy! Well, not sure where the modification came from, but you're right; somewhere along the line in the 90's or so the chant changed...the GOOOOOOOOOOO was definitely dragged out much more than it is now, as was the "NEERS".....

It's was the cheerleaders in 1980. They held up posters with let's go then turned around with another that said mountaineers. I remember very well, first game at then the new mountaineer stadium. We were so confused 😐 Effing cheerleaders screwed it up.

Checked the Vegas sites this morning.

Looks like VT is a 3 - 1/2 to a 4 - 1/2 point favorite depending on the betting site. This is the chance for WVU to make a splash.

First, I prefer the earlier cheer. The newer version is too long and drawn out. Second, both of those cheers are still our cheer, not Vag Tech's cheer. If they use either one, it is ours because they are both ours. Finally, we don't steal crap from Marshall. Inconceivable!

Kind of glad WVU plays TCU since they will be somewhat familiar with 4-2-5 defense.

Grier throws for 400+.

RB's run for 200+.

Over 600 total yards ... and LOTS of points!

Just an FYI, but there is no such thing as "VTU." The school's full name is Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, so an abbreviated form would be either VPI or Va. Tech.

I don't think this is crazy. I think our offense will be elite. I'm a bit surprised Vegas has them favored. ESPN and most ranking services have consistently had us at 20th and the chokies around 25th, so I was assuming an even line or 1-2 points either way. I expect us to not only cover but win and will be very disappointed with any other result

I feel like we actually have a decent counter. Their weak spot is D line, and we should be able to run the ball. Plus young QB against White and Henry.

I think what would worry most about game would be game changing turnovers, like in OSU or OU game last year and Special team blunders.

Well those of us from the University of West Virginia (UWV) might disagree.

Not to pump up the hype, but I really feel this is the year WVU could suprise, expectations are low, picked to finish 6th in Big 12, could suprise teams and sneak in playoffs. No pressure on team at all, maybe we could end up with a 2005 type season. I'm beginning to feel more confident about going against Virginia Tech, and this is definitely not a strong Big 12. OSU looks like they could make a run with elite offense but defense looks suspect, WVU on the hand could have elite offense, WR's prob not as good as OSU, but RB's are definitely better. Confident with Gibson as DC that by mid-season defense will be legit. Everyone else in Big 12 seems to have way more question marks than WVU.

Virginia Tech named Josh Jackson as the starter at QB.
