Well Texas sure hasn't. They damn near lost to the biggest bottom feeder in the B12. Mack "The" Brown is about as close to forced retirement as a bad coach can get.<quoted text>
Welp, this iz a fine dish-o-crow I'm have'n. A little light on the garlic for my taste, and I would have liked portabellas to go with it, but...what the heck; crow is crow.
For my Mountaineers, it's back to the drawing board. I just hope they've got one big enough, because they've got a lot of work to do. Bad enough the defense has been just plain bad, but when the offense goes south for the winter...
Before the season started, I figured em for 9-3, maybe 10-2. While there were worries a plenty, my biggest were @ Texas, Kansas St, and @ Oky St. In fact, I was certain they'd lose one of the Texas games; if they pulled it out in Austin, they'd likely fall in Lubbock or vice versa. Then they played Baylor, and I thought, so much for my prediction because I knew better than to think that was gonna work all season. I just figured the losses would be more competitive. I didn't figure WVU would get blown out by TX Tech any more than most figured TX would get blown out by Oklahoma.
Kansas St, another ugly game for WVU. Klein was absolutely masterful. Like TX Tech has Doege, K-St has Klein for another year to boot. Their defense was phenomenal. Both of Geno's INT's were directly the fault of one guy who got way up to cause one and snare the other. If they continue the way they're playing, I think K-St may be one of the few teams in the country who can play Bama straight up. I think they'd crush Oregon.
Anyway, too much football left to play.(Who am I kidding? There's NEVER TOO MUCH football.) We'll see who can bounce back, who can keep up the good work, and whose got what left in the tank when it's over.
WV can't take on Oklahoma and get out to the buses with a win. They may have problem with a TCU if they don't cover the back door. ISU and OSU have been known to ruin a day or two.
And don't put lowly KU out to pasture yet. WVU plays them like Texas did, WVU is big trouble. Like I said, the B12 is not the place to be if you like winning all your games.
