They should go ahead and stop the season right now. Alabama vs. Oklahoma are the only teams worthy.
....or texas. or missouri. or duke. or yomamma Univ., or south florida, or johnston county community college, or whoever else ends up #1 or #2 by season's end after Bama and OU go through the rest of their conference.
fvckin usc, how the hell they lose to an unranked team???? i dont get it. one day they slaughter 5th ranked team, then they lose against unranked team. man, they were sloppy. also, does anyone know how far they dropped in rank?
Man, watching Pitt dispose of USF, I haven't been that pumped over a team winning a game since...OSU disposed of USC the week before.
But despite the fact that I went to GT, my first choice was PITT (too expensive), so I still cheer for them. But more importantly, I really feel for Wannstadt. He had a losing record as a coach and like a lot of native residents that coach the hometown university, really has his heart and soul into the program. I'd like nothing more than to see them right the ship before he's gone and some wannabe coach takes his place. Good for them.
And BTW, McCoy is the "real" deal. (pun intended). That extra effort he made to get that first down in the 3rd quarter (I think) was phenomenal and reminded me of OSU's Rodgers the week before.
So I give college football credit for having a great OT rule. But they might have one of the dumbest rules ever overall. In the Florida, LSU game LSU was receiving a kick off and the guy catching it wasnt paying attention and put one foot out of bounds while he caught it (even though the entire ball was in bounds) and they ruled it (on th field and after review) as a kick out of bounds and LSU gets it on the 40??? Are you serious? So now on any kick off (according to this rule) all a team has to do is jump on a grab any ball near the side line and land out of bounds and it becomes a penalty on the kicking team.
In the Pat White era, I probably average viewing about 3 WVU games per year, and nearly every time, I look at this team and think, "I don't think anyone in the country can beat this team." They are routinely the best open-field running team in the country, without a doubt. You give this team space, and they will make you pay.
Their problem is not finishing drives early. Take the ECU and PITT games from the last 2 years, as well as the 1st half of this game. The run spread is, without question, an extremely powerful offensive attack in college football...but the drawback is that it is imperitive that you score early.
So all that being said, the Mountaineers erased a 14-point deficit last night. The defense clamped down, and they RAN (not passed) to a comeback win. Nice to see that for a change.
