MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Regardless of what Lane Kiffin says, a few down-on-their-luck prognosticators actually did stage a pickers-only meeting this week to reflect on whether any of us would choose USC to beat Washington State again, or for that matter, Glenville State.

We would love to spend more time punking Kiffin’s quest to make Trojans fans long for the days of Paul Hackett, but alas, we must conduct an internal investigation into whether last week’s top panelist received envelopes filled with cash and Bill Burr tickets.

On to this week’s picks:

    Goose is so giddy about his bro coming to play in Pittsburgh Im surprised he was able to make the picks

  • Dougie

    For all you guys wanting Millard out take a look at the first road games for our other top qb's:
    Millard: 21-of-41 for 218 yards with 1 interception. In 2009 Jarrett Brown 18-of-32 for 221 yards and a TD with 4 INT's in his first career road start at Auburn, a 41-30 Tiger victory. Sophomore Rasheed Marshall made his first career road start at Camp Randall Stadium in Wisconsin in 2002 against the 25th-ranked Badgers and he finished the game just 17-of-36 for 219 yards in a 17-point defeat. Chad Johnston’s first career road start came at the Meadowlands in Piscataway, N.J., in 1994 against 4th-ranked Nebraska and he had a miserable afternoon going up against the best defense in college football. Johnston completed just 2 of his 6 attempts for 19 yards with one INT in a 30-0 shutout. Major Harris’ first career road start at Ohio State in 1987 was even worse. The redshirt freshman completed only 2-of-10 for 17 yards with 2 INT's in WVU's 24-3 loss to the 5th-ranked Buckeyes. Marc Bulger lost his first career road start at BC in 1997 when the Eagles stormed back to defeat the Mountaineers, 31-24. Bulger threw mostly low-risk passes that afternoon, completing 17-of-28 for 218 yards and 2 TD's with one INT. Brad Lewis also lost his first road start 34-17 at BC in 1999. Lewis, filling in for an injured Bulger, completed 21-of-33 for 229 yards and 2 TD's. You guys are just spoiled from last year...

      Look at Dougie, elevating the comment section with some research.

  • Justin

    Imagine a loss lol...

  • Big Larry

    This new Mountaineer Offense is an experiment that so far has gone wrong...

    WVU 28 Georgia State 7

    Allan Taylor...

    You know I "Love your Work" ...but 60 points? What are you thinking?

    • Allan Taylor

      Maybe it's going to be a breakout Saturday, Big Larry?

  • tw eagle

    I wouldn't be looking to see the same level of commitment from the Mountaineers this week . . . .emotional , that is . . .hard to bring
    it every week like they did in norman . . .i'd expect the "level 3 " players do the brunt of
    the work this week . . .getting the 3's time with
    the 2 deep will afford them game experience
    and hopefully grow their confidence . . .also a good time to start letting Dawson carry the
    responsibility of play calling , overseen by
    Holgerson , but letting Holgerson spend his
    sideline energies on more diverse avenues
    of managing a team . . .

  • Allen

    Some of the pickers should stick to licking stamps if they think Georgia State will score more than 10 if any points at all. WVU scores 50 plus by the end of the 3rd quarter and has 35 by half time.

    • Crashing Down

      Not with Millard at the helm. The dude was trailing hapless I-AA Billy & Mary by 10 points at halftime. Millard should be playing at Fairmont State, not WVU.

  • ron "from morgantown"

    Wvu can pick the score this week , 80 if they want it . All the qbs who play will look good but nothing will be resolved. Ga State has to play at Alabama later this year , that ought to be interesting .

  • doug

    Childress should start. He is a big QB with an even bigger arm. Why holgersen wants to keep him on the bench another year I have no clue. Watch his youtube clips and you will see. As for Trickett, if he plays let's hope its not windy. He will blown all over the place.

    • Nick

      He doesn't want to start Childress because we need back ups bad. If Childress starts Milliard might transfer and there goes a decent backup.

  • WVWho

    Of course a program in it's fourth year of existence is going to stink. Trickett should play the whole game, and the game after, and the game after...
