The Sock 'Em, Bust 'Em Board Because that's our custom

Hey y’all! I’m back from some needed vacation time and the holidays, and there is no time to tip-toe back into things. WVU has climbed to No. 16 in the AP Top 25 and opens Big 12 play at No. 3 Kansas on Saturday. Just how impressed were the voters by the Mountaineers’ upset win against then No. 2 Ohio State last week? Every single ballot this week had WVU in the Top 25 and one voter had West Virginia as high as No. 4 in the country. For what it’s worth, I had West Virginia at No. 11 on my ballot this week.

Bob Huggins hopped on the phone with the media this morning ahead of his team’s trip to Phog Allen Fieldhouse this weekend. Audio from the call is below if, say for instance, you’re back at work for the first time since the holidays and need something to steal your attention for 15 minutes this afternoon.
