    West Virginia's W/L record in 2013?

    So Athlon has asked me to participate in their Big 12 roundtable this summer. We're going game-by-game making predictions for the Big 12.

    Up first is West Virginia. I have them at 4-8, 1-7 in the Big 12. I actually have them losing to KU. I have Iowa State beating them as well. Obviously, I'm not sold on the Mountaineers. Are you?

    I pretty much agree with you Chris, other than I would have them beating Kansas. I'd pick them at 5-7.

    Maryland
    Oklahoma State
    @ Baylor
    Texas Tech
    @ Kansas State
    @ TCU
    Texas
    @ Kansas

    Everyone has WV beating Texas Tech?? Is Texas Tech going to be that bad this year?


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    I also had them 4-8.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Glad CW is connected with Athlon. This year was the first time I paid attention to their magazine (because our James White was on the Iowa cover). It is a really good publication with tons of info, stats, and analysis for the entire Big 12.

    I hope so but I doubt it. I am betting they are better than ISU, WVU and KU but I hope we beat them.

    Something's gotta give with 9 competitive teams out of 10. They can't all make a bowl every year. The most likely teams to have the breaks go against them are clearly ISU, Tech, and WVU.

    Because Tech hired apparently the second coming of ****** as their coach, and WVU had success in a horrible conference, most of the media will pick ISU to be the one who has some tough losses...but really it could just as easily be WVU and/or Tech.

    Based on how the panel picked WVa-ISU game, it looks like Chris might be the only one who'll pick Iowa State to finish better than 4-8.

    Here were my early-summer picks for WVa, posted previously-- I'm still teetering on the ISU result, though:

    WEST VIRGINIA
    W William & Mary
    L @ Oklahoma
    W Georgia State
    L @ Maryland
    L Oklahoma St.
    L @ Baylor
    W Texas Tech
    L @ Kansas St.
    L @ TCU
    L Texas
    L @ Kansas
    W Iowa St.
    4-8, 2-7

    I think they will be bad and Dana will be out of a job at the end of the year, but they think I'm insane when I bring up the possibility of Holgs being let go.

    Has our game with them been decided if it's going to be Friday or Saturday?


    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives…..

    L @ Baylor
    W Texas Tech
    L @ Kansas St.
    L @ TCU
    L Texas
    W @ Kansas
    L Iowa St.

    Schedule isn't exactly kind to them, is it? I gave them Tech because it's a transition year for TT, and in Morgantown (did I get their town right?)--and KU, though it's on the road, because I haven't seen anything from their coach. Otherwise, those games could flip as well.

    Of course, losing Geno could well prove to be addition by subtraction.

    I think ISU gets WVU at the right time. They will hopefully be beaten down from a tough season and won't pack their stadium.

    Yeah, it's a crappy time for a home game but a great time for an away game.
