I think the key to defense, especially against teams like TCU, is to gamble selectively to force stops knowing we are going to get burnt on occasion but keeping them from scoring too much.

I'd like to see some aggressive play from our dbacks. Get up on the line and smack their receivers in the mouth early and set the tone of the game

Either our # 1's get healthy quickly or this TCU game will be REAL ugly for WVU. The Pat Miller like coverage and all the lousy tackling yesterday isn't going to cut it @ TCU (or against any team with a pulse)

It's going to be interesting to see what the opening Las Vegas line on this match up at TCU is. Too soon to predict with all the injuries but I expect TCU to be favored by at least 8 to 10 points. Stay tuned .......


Update 10/2/17: Not surprised, the opening Las Vegas line is TCU - 12.5 points. It makes me wonder if this game deserves a ESPN Game Day visit? The injuries and inexperience on defense for WVU are a big reason for the point spread being so high. Govern yourself accordingly and stock up on lots of alcohol.

The game is at 2:30, is it on TV nationally? If so, who is televising it?

I have lived in South Carolina for 31 years and I just cannot believe in Clem's Son, no matter what. They could win the National Title for the next 50 years in a row, and I will refuse to believe in the orange and purple. In fact, orange or purple have to be the two BUTT UGLIEST colors ever to end up on a football field.

And as far as a mascot....a tiger? Are you kidding me? Did a 6 year old come up with that mascot? Tigers have about as much to do with the state of South Carolina as culture has to do with, well South Carolina.


....give me a minute and I will tell you what I really think of 'ol Clem's Boy.


....oh and BTW, the ACC sucks balls too!

I am just glad that it's not on at night. Maybe its my imagination, but we just don't seem to do well on the road at night.

I was at the Orange Bowl WVU beat down vs. Clemson from 3 hours before start of the game to 2 hours after the celebration. Pregame: Their fans already had the game won, BUT by halfway thru the third quarter their side of the field was completely empty. I mean 100% EMPTY, zero, zip, nada fans to be found.........it was sad.

In regards to our defense the one thing that I have confidence with is that with Gibson the defense will get better as the season goes on. It may not be enough to knock off TCU but when you compare their performance versus Kansas to the games they play in November I think we'll be saying its a better defense.

I hate Clemson too, but that D line is the stuff of nightmares. When can get serious pressure on the QB rushing three players...

This game all depends on Will Grier taking care of the ball. If he runs all loosey goosey with the ball, forces throws or holds on to the ball too long for huge losses we lose this game. I'll bet $100 that TCU's defense knows his tendencies and they are licking their chops. He needs to take a page from the Skyler Howard book and manage the game.

2017 - L - Virginia Tech 31-24
2016 - No away night games
2015 - L - TCU - 40-10, L- K-State - 24-23 (This one is a toss-up because it started at 5:30 EST)
2014 - No night away games

Not much of a sample size, but I'm too lazy to go back any further lmfao. I worry more about our record in the storm troopers tbh.

Not only that but I don't think we're ever won a game when gameday was present, and I don't think TCU has ever lost when gameday was present. There will be a lot of broken stats after we beat them on Saturday.

Well I mean technically Game Day was there when we stopped on Clemson in the Orange Bowl?? But yeah, we're 1-2 in 3 games, losses to LSU and TCU.


TCU is 5-0.

I think this game is more winnable than people seem to think. Here’s why:

1. TCU home field advantage is not much of an advantage. Capacity is only 50,000 and never seems very loud on tv. This is def one of the smallest stadiums we have left to play in this year.

2. TCU qb isn’t that good. He has been way over rated his entire collegiate career. Looking at his stats against OU, he had 228 yards on 20+ completions. This tells me he doesn’t throw downfield much. I think we can focus on stopping the run and make The Trill be the one to beat us.

3. Defense is good but not great. Okie Lite put up 500 yards on the frogs but lost because of 4 turnovers.

Don’t get me wrong, this will be a very difficult game, but if our D can stop the run and our offense plays as we have been, this will be a W for the good guys.
