    When we where there last year it was like 55 degrees for kick. Much better weather to watch a game in ha!

    Advantage Syracuse.

    That is an ugly afternoon for them.

    Why would Syracuse have an advantage? They play in a dome.

    agree w/ Syracuse being a dome team, but has to sting WVU to go from Heisman qb and NC conversation team...to the Snow Bowl.

    Good call...but the blizzard conditions will keep Austin in check I assume.

    Probably not. Snow favors the offense heavily since defense is all about reacting.

    I think that's a bit of an overstatement. The offense does quite a bit of reacting also.

    Not nearly as much as the defense. The receivers, running backs, and linemen all know where they are going on any given play. Nearly everyone on the defense has to react to the movement of the offensive players.

    Even the grass was still green. Just seemed like a regular football game in the fall.

    Interesting how it only snowed on one half of the field...

    WVU/Syracuse fans may elect to be sitting in their hotel rooms to watch this extravaganza....or leave at halftime for drinks.

    If you're going to play in bad weather it might as well be closer to home and a lot more inexpensive.

    So far it sure doesn't look like the snow has favored the offenses.
