Back from New York City and New Jersey with my feet back on the ground and the hands of my clocks back to the proper time. Let’s be honest for a moment: How many of you set their clocks back an hour Saturday night because they thought Daylight Saving Time had ended?
On to the show. As always, comments appear as posted. In other words, I’m nothing without you … and your words go nowhere without me.
I hope the Rutgers recruits were impressed by that out-and-out drubbing at the hands of the Mountaineers. Iâ€™ve always wondered that if recruits ever say to themselves, â€œI never considered (Team X), but after watching them destroy (team recruiting me), maybe Iâ€™ll go there instead.â€ This could explain why Boston College is so good now, considering the drubbing they gave WVU in Morgantown in 2004.
Anyway, I think itâ€™s clear that this is the best Mountaineer team ever, which might show why the fans were so mad at the coach after the inexplicable loss to South Florida.
Poor Rutgers recruits had to stand out on the field and watch the game. Many had no wears for the weather and were soaked to the bone by the end of the game, when a few were seen snapping photos of the Mountaineers with their cell phones.
To your point, Ben, I’m trying to figure out the more jaded line of thinking: That this is the “best Mountaineer team ever” or that B.C.’s success is a product of aÂ win against WVU in 2004. My conclusion? It’s a good time to be a WVU fan, yes?Â Â Not only is your team good, but others are better because of your team.
I will say this: When the Mountaineers have a healthy Patrick White, a decisive Steve Slaton, the best five offensive linemen on the field and receivers who can plant their feet and get into defensive backs, that offense is very, very tough. As improbable as it seems after the loss at USF, the win at Rutgers, inspired by a great gameplan, has this team in position to win the Big East and cruise into a BCS game, where it can then prove itself as the best WVU team ever.
