    I disagree with this. This is the best the state of WV has to offer, so it affects every West Virginian that buys shirts, attends games and pays their fair share of taxes! Every one is entitled to their opinion (good or bad). Unfortunately, the state has been wronged so many times by so many looking out for their own interests (politicians)! This is their outlet and their passion. However, if you are a true Mountaineer fan, you would be looking for positives, not negatives! I am a graduate and love them dearly! LET'S GOOOO......MOUNTAINEERS!!!

    hey there and thank you for your info – I've certainly picked up something new from right here. Jones sabo the builder this carlo sal karzai's com

    I bet that were going to be better than most think.

    Jim must be an educated man, his statement is right on. Most of the people that talk "trash" have no ties to the school other than their trailer in Monongalia county. Learn your role and shut your hole.

  • Lewis

    It is simple if your not a college graduate cheer for Marshall. Or stop crying about nonsense or things you know nothing about. Bro

    Lets give him a chance we have done better as far as recruiting.

  • brian

    Jim- what a stupid statement to make. If you want to factor out the non-alums from attendance at the games, purchase of WVU merchandise, radio and tv audiences- as well as this forum,then Mountaineer Field would require seating for 20,000 at best.

    • Lewis

      Brian your comment stinks and you obviously have a peanut for a brain. Bro

  • Big Dog

    Big Dog says Big Tom is right on.. dont drink the kool-aid and make the coaches such as deforest ante up and give some of that money back,,, he's aloser Big Dog says

  • big tom

    BIg Tom says deforest is making way too much money to just look after special teams. Seeing how hi flunked out of his other position, how can he be an associate HC..
    somet\hing terrribly wrong with this picture> Luck will make changes and Luck will win, but more heads need to roll. I am behind him 100% , but not so sure about holgs, but i am willing to give him another year maybe two . Big TOm

    like you

    Let's b real ppl. Offensively last year we were average in the league and defensively near the bottom. This year w/ a large infussion of youth on O and virtually the same personnel on D if we have one more victory than last year its a great success. I think the obvious concern for this team is effort and heart. Last year's team had numerous moments when they gave up and that's COACHING. This year is a referendum on H!

    Money doesn't entitle you to display your opinion bud. I'm as diehard as anyone on this board but don't expect WVU to care if your happy or not. Our Mountaineers will have a fight this year but our coaches will pull us through. Mountaineers do best when fighting back.

    • Money

      Oh... well if thats the case then NO ONE should display an opinion. That means no more news papers or metronews stories. You are out of your mind if you think money doesn't give you a say. Ask Milan Puskar and the powerful members of the 1100 Club if enough money lends you the ear of coaches...

      • Lewis

        Only the college educated should state an opinion your missing the point bro.

  • Chip in CLE

    I ain't no boo bird and did not graduate from WV. How about we just stop responding to the ignorant posters who will never get on board with the new regime. Can't wait to see this year unfold - big challenge but I think we'll surprise some folks.

    • Lewis

      Proper grammar would go a long way bud. Bro

  • Wemakerain

    How right you are sir

  • JRB

    I am in total agreement with Jim
