  • JL

    Have yo admit I really like Brad Howe on the sportsline and on the pre game show.

  • Fed Up

    Things have gotten really bad when Hop picks the Eers to lose..

    • squad

      other than one conf game, he has picked us to lose every week

  • Truthteller

    So how much money does Ohio State pay Florida State to take a dive so they will get a chance to play Alabama in the National Championship only to lose severely like Notre Dame did last year? If only WVU played such an easy schedule as Ohio State. They only played two lower ranked teams and the other teams had
    losing records. The Big Ten is so weak!!!

    • Jason

      The Big Ten is weak, but don't act like the Big 12 is the SEC or something. The bottom half teams in the Big 12 are as weak as any in any conference.

  • tw eagle

    the name of this game is pick and choose,
    the object of course, to broaden the stream

    you've queried and pondered , you've joked ,and made light of the weakness of teams

    as this season of picking comes to a close
    the winners will chuckle , the losers will scream . . .

  • big tom

    wvu 17 iowa state 28

  • Hop'sHip

    Hunter and Jones seem to be competing for the worst record. Is there some kind of boob prize at stake?

    • Travis Jones

      I won this thing last year but thought i would keep Coach Hunter company in the basement this season...he gets lonely

      • Alum

        Too funny. And how nice of you to think of your fellow broadcaster. ;)

      • Billy

        The way Hunter promotes Luck and Holgy, I think just maybe you guys need to drag him out of the basement and get him some fresh air. After his blood oxygen picks up, have him take another look. Maybe, just maybe he will be able to remove those rose volored glasses too.

        • Troll is back

          That's how it should, I support and promote those guys also, like it or not they are our AD and Coach. Furthermore as far as I can tell they are doing fine, we will be ok in the future in the Big 12 as long as the Coach gets to finish what he has started. I can already tell a difference in the overall number of athletes as opposed to a few great ones, we now have more athelets in more positions than ever. He is also taking care of the recruiting and getting our numbers up to have the depth we have been lacking. Give Holgorsen his time and we will be just fine in our new conference.

          • appikid

            What? And I guess you think this is a better team than last years, too!

          • Billy

            Like it or not they are our ad and coach? Well, this too shall come to pass. If they survive 1 more year from now it would shock me. More and more of the Mountaineer Nation of fans are growing weary of both. One thing I can agree with you on is you are a troll. How much does a paid troll recieve? Are you paid by the word or the post? I would guess that you are paid by the word, because you do tend to ramble and get off of your own topic often, just sayin....

          • Troll is back

            Well Billy regardless of whether I ramble or not guess what, Holgorsen is still the coach and Luck is still the AD therefore WVU is still on the right course!

          • Duane from Morgantown

            I agree with most if what you said! It sickens me when I hear how great our fanbase is. We have one of the best when we are winning, but it sucks eggs when we have a rebuilding year. It must be harder to hang on to the bandwagon these days. Oh well....more room for me.

  • The Wisetalker

    Look for the cyclones to defeat the Mountaineers Saturday 34-28.

    Hopefully no one will stand in line in the cold to buy tickets for this one.

    Be Smart and watch it on TV.

  • FL Truk

    It's a shame that we're playing Iowa State this week and not Pitt.

    • SamWvu304

      Yea it definitely does suck. No Backyard Brawl. However if you look at who teams play in the rest of the country,would it not be that we would play the in state rival? Mar--mar--mar--I can't do it.You know who I mean.Most states seem to. Could be a lot of $$$...for programs. Not sure how the conference games pay as to Non-conf.but be perfect time of year for it.

      • Rock Solid

        @Samwvu304: Have you just had a stupid attack or what? Did you not see the empty seats in Huntington while they were playing for a seat in the USA conference championship game? We would make a lot of money playing a rivalry game against Marsha, because orher states use this week for rivalry games? If we played Pitt it would be a disaster. We could play either and NOBODY with a lick of sense would care, especially the sponsers who pay the money. Getting Marsha off of the contract that was forced by Manchin was the best thing that has happened to WVa in recent history. Plus Marsha would have beat the crap out of us this year, But so would Fairmont State and Bridgeport HS. GET THIS SEASON OVER WITH AND LET's go Charie Weis, no I mean Huggs. I get them confused for some reason.

        • appikid

          We would have lost! JUST BEING HONEST!

          • Jason

            No question about it.

        • Fed Up

          Didn't realize Hop has been a nay sayer this year. Plus where I live I can no longer get the games on the radio.

        • SamWvu304

          @Rocksolid,obviously I have, to have sat here and wasted my time reading the garbage you posted. Regardless who we play right now its a loss in your eyes before the game even starts. Fairy weather fan huh?...Can't believe you would say that mar...sha would beat WVU. Yea that team is irrelevant in the real college football world. obody showed up.

  • tw eagle

    an offensive system that can be installed in three days , but a signaling system that takes
    a QB three years to interpolate ? I think the
    God's of Victory are punishing Holgerson and WVU for his inability to "mesh" with the team. . .
    he expects perfect polished blocking from an O - line that is just starting to get a full
    complement of bodies . . .it's lucky WVU was
    playing in the big easy - expecting to win by cobbling together 5 bodies and hoping no one got hurt during the season . . .this is a
    base process that takes time , my guess 5-7
    years to show continued and polished work
    every year . . .and without a cohesive O-line
    a RB will struggle . . .RR had it made , Owen
    kept the LB's inside and honest with the dive , Pat & Steve had only the D-end to beat
    because the LB's had to first honor the fake to Owen , when the LB's cheated , Owen got the ball and rumbled . . .speed , quickness , and a BIG desire to WIN made those Mountaineer teams hard to beat . . .

    if our resident genius in charge of the O will
    climb off his 'high horse' and match his game
    plans and play calls to what these Mountaineers can execute properly , they will
    once again begin to win , CAUSE I SEE IN THESE MOUNTAINEERS THAT SAME FIRE AND DESIRE TO WIN AS THE AFOREMENTIONED TRIO OF WVU GRADS . . .


    Let's Gooo Mountaineeerrrsss ! ! ! !
