I spy the smallest amount of power possible going to someone's head. 

Skip called my boss, literally my first day on the job as a plucky young newscaster fresh out of school, and demanded I be fired. So yeah, that sounds about right.

Good point - I've been discounting that game since WVU gets the Sooners at home, but it's still going to be a big test for the local team.

Damn glad to hear from you, AB. We're always here for you, and glad you're part of our little digital family.

I've been pegging the Baylor game as the de facto Big XII championship game, and it seems like that's their toughest remaining game after this weekend's trip to Stillwater. I have to think the Mountaineers will be favored in the other games on their schedule aside from those two (and I'm not sure of the line on this weekend's game, honestly).

Navy, given your depth of knowledge with the advanced stats, I'd appreciate your analysis on something: How should I feel about West Virginia as a team, and how should I feel about their chances through the rest of the season?

Hell, people haven't moved on from MSU


Oh wait, you mean the other one?

I think Ohio State will win a decisive victory, but this line seems a bit... unrealistic to me. Good reminder that the line is about getting people to balance the bookie's ledger, not about accurately predicting the outcome of the game.

Barrett wasn't particularly outstanding against the Nittany Lions

Despite the hue and cry in the open threads, this loss ain't on Barrett. He's the only reason, frankly, we were in the game at all given the issues with the O-line and the questionable lack of carries to C. Samuel. This loss - like the Virginia Tech loss - underscores Coach Meyer's oft-repeated mantra that "we are an offensive line-driven program." Hang this one on the line and the receivers (and the play-calling, as per usual).
