    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
    Iowa State

    5-7 (2-7).

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


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

    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.

    Re: West Virginia's W/L record in 2013?

    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.

    Re: West Virginia's W/L record in 2013?

    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…..

    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.
