Mountaineers ground the Eagles in season openerYou couldn't have asked for a better season opener than this past Saturday when West Virginia dominated Georgia Southern, 44-0. Before WVU’s defense did it last night, Georgia Southern hadn’t been shutout since Dec. 2, 1995, during an FCS playoff loss to Montana.Read More »

Although the Mountaineers couldn’t wrangle the Longhorns, we still painted the town in gold and blueOur Mountaineers finally hit the proverbial wall Nov. 8, falling flat on the road in Austin. From the first kickoff, they had me as jumpy as spit on a hot skillet. They looked as haggard and lethargic as I’ve seen them this season, trailing at the half 24-3.

For the second time this season, sophomore Josh Lambert became a Mountaineer hero when he kicked a long, game-winning field goal with virtually no seconds left […]Read More »
Highlights of the Mountaineers' victory over JayhawksDave and I were in Freehold, NJ, for a wedding last Saturday, so we missed watching the Mountaineers defeat the Jayhawks. Although we couldn’t find a TV station that carried the game, we got to listen to a live stream with the WVU Gameday app. As typical of the games this season, WVU played well […]Read More »
