ATLANTA — Sounds, shots and scenes from West Virginia’s season opener against No. 2 Alabama at the Georgia Dome.
J the C
One thing that I haven't seen mentioned is the fact that although they were exhausted, the D didn't quit in the 4th Q.

Unlike the haters I am very proud of this team. They should of won the game. The opportunities were there but they dropped way too many passes and should of turn those field goals into touchdowns. Change those field goals into touchdowns and WVU would of won for sure. WVU could of overcome the bias refs as well. Has anyone ever seen a personal foul on a player just standing on the sidelines and he gets hit by a jumping QB out of control??? The SEC does have the refs in their pocket for sure.

Would've, could've, should've. Unfortunately we lost. I'm disappointed. But, I'm happy with the teams effort.
September 1, 2014 at 7:35 pm |
They were ACC refs. They're just dumb.
September 1, 2014 at 5:16 pm |
Should have been Big 10 refs. ACC has always hated WVU.

Um, I have a question ... Could've sworn in that interview montage that Trickett said their passing game plan was based on Alabama playing man to man, but they played zone. I know it was the first game, but how did someone guess so wrong?
September 1, 2014 at 9:44 am |
They might have guessed wrong. It that's the case, they did a heck of a job adapting.
September 1, 2014 at 7:39 pm |
Clint Trickett threw for 365 yards on the #2 ranked team in the country and should have had over 400 if it weren't for the drops. What are you talking about?
MountainMover you are classic example of WVU hater/jealous Marshall fan that can't stand the fact that WVU had a chance to upset the #2 ranked team in the country. Kinda makes you mad doesn't it?
September 1, 2014 at 1:20 pm |
You dope, that passing performance was the 3rd worst licking that bama has suffered during the Saban era! Great performance! we darn near beat the #2 team in the country in their own back yard. Congrats Mounties!

Bama will not be the number 2 team at the end of the season.
They could be number one.
September 1, 2014 at 7:51 pm |
Has anyone seen the post by Pat White. He just stated on twitter that Bama had offered him a Corvette to play for them. So glad he is a man of integrity Unlike D. Henry who just posted his brand new sports car. Makes U wonder Proud to be a Mountaineer.
September 1, 2014 at 1:17 am |
No he didn't.
September 1, 2014 at 7:55 pm |
Apparently, you didn't do any research concerning the car, did you? Proud you're not a Mountaineer.
September 1, 2014 at 7:30 pm |
The car has been in his family for a while.
He's using it at school. I saw him play in High school.Same ride.

william-I just posed this same question to you on Allan Taylor's column of yesterday. Since you are such a DEVIANT SICKO, I (and probably many others on this site) am curious as to your answer. Your comment "I'M LOVIN' IT": I'm wondering if this applies as much as when you and your BOYFRIEND(s) have whatever type of kinky sex a creep like you is into?
Great effort yesterday Mounties!!! A few (quite a few) less dropped passes, better tackling and much less ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING one sided officiating and we would have knocked off the Tide!!! Keep your chins up and play like you're capable of WV and the season will be a very rewarding one!!!!!
September 1, 2014 at 1:12 am |
One more thing. We should have blitzed more since our pass rush was pretty much none existent. Need to work on open field tackling as we'll.
September 1, 2014 at 1:09 am |
We weren't playing Pitt or UConn. Quality players make you miss.
September 1, 2014 at 12:51 pm |
Expected to lose by 26 points and looked as though we could have won the game. Very proud of this football team. Always have been
September 1, 2014 at 1:07 am |
MU had to hold off Miami of ohio!!! Really.....lol

Doesn't Dana "The Man in Black" Holgerson look great wearing that nice BLACK shirt?

William get a life .Are you still living at home ?
August 31, 2014 at 9:28 pm |
Apparently, he lives at home AND works at McDonald's. He's lovin' it!
August 31, 2014 at 10:37 pm |
WVU losses, and fans say it was a Great game.
Wow, WVU fans now think losing is OK.
How sad is that?
WVU fans are very weak!
I'M LOVIN' IT

Sorta reminds me of the Marshall fans after the 1997 game and the 2010 game. I actually had MU fans say to me directly in 1997 the "we won that game" it doesn't get much more dilusional than that.
September 2, 2014 at 10:43 am |
An actual athlete
Nobody says it is OK with loose, however there was marked improvement over last year which is what most of us actual fans are after. Playing the #2team in the country in what is basically a road game and having a chance at winning is pretty good, especially compared to the last couple of seasons. What do you suggest we do to get better William?
September 1, 2014 at 1:20 am |
Don't hate the university hate your life or lack there of.
September 1, 2014 at 1:05 am |
What a great game!!! Soo close!
Let's go Mounties!!
August 31, 2014 at 9:07 pm |
September 1, 2014 at 12:52 pm |
I thought the Mounties had a great game. Bans is good but
Three very questionable calls
Pass interference call, unsportmanship, and the intentional grounding all were bad calls. And at least interference call that should have been called on Bama. ACC refs what should I expect much better change those calls change the game.
August 31, 2014 at 8:59 pm |
Calls definitely were made to protect Bama. I was surprised at the blatancy of the officials and the play by play as well. Had our guy on the sidelines put a forearm under Blake's chin and put him on his back, maybe. It did look like more of an attempt to slow his roll than any act of malice. Guess lesson is, when the other team rumbles into our bench area, they are on their own. No good deed goes unpunished.
