MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — What was that nonsense about Miami receiving the death penalty? Given the way this NCAA investigation petered out, we’ve decided Rivals should name Nevin Shapiro recruiter of the year while and that Mark Emmert is the one guilty of lack of institutional control.

But enough with those sour grapes, USC fans. Clearly Miami just had better attorneys, ones who found the NCAA loophole allowing official visits to take place on yachts, where strippers serve as “hostesses” and forgetful agents leave behind backpacks full of 20s.

On to this week’s picks, where the panel should give itself a bowl ban after an atrocious Week 8:

    Who will be up for the game ? Who wants to play and who doesn't ? This isn't Oklahoma . The purple people eaters like to devour its prey slowly and to chew its food plenty before digestion . Baylor is a Cheetah ( but not like SI Ok State who his a cheata ) . Still wondering how Huggs ended up at Kstate , maybe its was the BB version of Chinese rehabilitation , send a dissident to a remote location to find "religion". The" little apple" , how funny , till you have to live there for more than 6 months .Its like Joan Rivers at Tunica , ( "where in the * am I ? ) . Back to my point , this ain't Oklahoma .I wonder about motivation. Snyder may be drinking Ensure on the sidelines while Holgs sips a suger free Bull . But Snyder is twice Holgs age and so will be the score , Kstate 44 ,WVU 22.

    WVU 55 K-STATE 14

    THE LEGACY BEGINS.

    • SamWV304

      Like.... (umm can't do the thumb thing on phone.Lol. That idea sounds great. Hopefully something begins. Lets Gooooo!!!!!!

  • Big Larry

    I predict that I will wear my care bear undies everynight. Also I will sleep in my race car bed. And eat 5 lbs of Ma's meatloaf.

    • Hailey

      I predict your mommy get in you for not turning the lights out in the basement when it's your bedtime ?

  • tw eagle

    it's good to see you've kept your sense of humor in the face of difficult and erroneous
    choices . . .I hereby revoke your standing
    as one of the omnipotent oracles . . .you are
    now the leader of the clueless combine . . .
    I've finally figured out what trickett is laughing
    at as he comes to the sidelines - he's laughing
    at Holgerson and his inept play calling . . .

    I still have a Holgerson statement ringing
    in my ears from a presser from weeks ago-
    "i'm still gonna use carswell cause he's got
    confidence ! " well , I got confidence in my
    driving abilities but no one is gonna let me drive an F1 chassis , even if just in practice ! !

    Let's Gooo Mountaineeerrrsss ! ! !

  • TruthTeller

    Every week Marshall is picked to win and WVU to lose!

  • TruthTeller

    Wow are most of these guys Marshall grads?

  • tony

    has to be the worst last week ever! glad to see Hop backing us this game...

    • Hoppy Kercheval

      I got a feelin'!

      • JS

        Hoppy, your "feelin" might just be gas. Hope you're right though about the pick.

  • Hop'sHip

    Wow! Our experts had a really, really bad week. If you just flip a coin on each pick, you're likely to go 5-5. Ask Hoppy.

    • Hoppy Kercheval

      So, Manchin doesn't actually MAKE the picks.

    • Allan Taylor

      I believe Hoppy has Joe Manchin making his picks.

      • Hop'sHip

        I don't believe that. If that were true he would be finding someway to pick BOTH teams in every game.

      • Harpers Ferry

        +1

  • Big Larry

    Last week I made two predictions:

    1. Both head coaches will be wearing Black.
    (Got that one right)

    2. WVU would win 38-27.
    (The final score was 37-27)

    This week:

    1. Bill Snyder will wear his school colors Purple & White

    2. Dana Holgorsen will wear Black

    3. Kansas State wins 34-31

    • Big Larry

      CORRECTION:

      I predicted Texas Tech would win...not WVU

      • Hailey

        4. Larry is a fat troll

  • JaneM

    As they made the turn around the halfway point we find Hoppy and Randy are running nose to nose heading into the Stritch. Brad is two back, and Allen is four off the pace Garrett and Kyle are running nose to nose seven back, Greg is running in 7th Place Travis off course 14 back... Just a Friday morning chuckle ....To be continued...

    • Bondo

      Nice picks on Marshall. LOLOLOL

      • Hoppy Kercheval

        If only Marshall had been able to hold them to 48.

      • Allan Taylor

        C-USA is squirrelly as ever.

  • Dougie

    Not off to a good start this week gentlemen...

  • Harpers Ferry

    Coaching Legend vs. Drinking & Gambling Legend? I'll go with Bill Snyder EVERYDAY, and 10 times on Tuesday. KSU by 13.

    • WVAtty

      What an ignorant, shallow minded, slanderous statement. Guess you've never drank before huh? Just shut up.

    • BetterThanYou

      Toolbox^^^

  • Dave

    They're all o-1 right now.

  • Billy

    WoW Allan was 2-8 last week, just WoW. Thats all I got...

    • Allan Taylor

      Let down by WVU, Dabo, L'ville, LSU, aTm, Spurrier, Muschamp and Sarkisian all in the same week. Brutal.

      • Billy

        Allan, you could have saved time by just listing the 2 you got right. Haha

    • Hop'sHip

      He must have been better at guessing when he took his College Boards. He did gain admission to 'Bama.
