Fooled Again!

Just when you think you have this college football thing figured out, a bunch of Mountaineers with an interim coach go blow out highly (over)rated Oklahoma. None of it added up. Oklahoma had won the Big 12 Title again by beating a good Missouri team for the second time this season. People we're talking about how they would be tough in a playoff, and how the AP might consider them for a split National Title. West Virginia had won that much maligned Big East, and blew a shot at the Title game with a loss to un-ranked Pitt....AT HOME! Then, their heralded coach traded Mountain Maize and Blue for Michigan Maize and Blue (where they would never wear Maize and Maize), and the program was turned over to some guy named Bill Stewart (above). So the rout was on, right? Yeah, the rout of Oklahoma! The Oklahoma defense was completely out manned, showing a lack of speed and tackling, much like they had in the Texas Tech game, and in the 4th quarter against Colorado. You can bet OU will be ranked in the top 5 in the pre-season polls in August, just to fool us all again next January....

West Virginia is doing the right thing with the Coaching move in my opinion. I am a Huge Nebraska fan and when Pelini was shafted a few years back after leading The Huskers to a great bowl victory They really messed things up by bringing in Bill Callahan and not giving Pelini a shot . Guess they figured out Pelini is the man after all!!! Hey Bill can I super size that ?? !!! Good job by You Guys in West Virginia!!!
