    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.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    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.

    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.

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


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    receivers and running backs have an idea of where they're going but are reacting to defenders all over the field and if the field is slippery it's hard for running backs to make good cuts.

    I get what you're saying but defenders have no idea where the offensive players are going, giving the offense a leg up already. Along with that, ball carriers know when they are going to cut and where they are going after the cut allowing them to mentally prepare themselves for the slick surface while the defenders are reading/reacting. The surface will be slippery for both teams, but the fact that the ball carriers/offense know where they are going gives them the upper hand.

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

    so you think every cut a ball carrier makes is planned out ahead of time? Interesting. QB scrambles, shifts, blitzes, receivers bumped off routes, there's alot more just plain reacting to what the defense gives you than that. I don't think the snow is as big of an advantage for the offense as your saying.
