Marshall totally blew it. Honestly, WVU might have 4 or 5 losses this year.

1. LSU

2. Pitt

3. South Florida

4. Rutgers

5. Uconn

Now they could possibly win 4 of those, but noway they beat the boys from LSU. WVU's offensive line is bad, and I dont think good defensive teams will allow them to sit back and throw like Marshall did at the end of the game.

Yeah defiantly need to fix the offensive line. Defense got burned a couple times but think they will be all right. Geno looked good for his second game as starter.

I usually only watch WVU for my boy Noel Devine, but I will be keeping my eye on a certain Mr. Tavon Austin from now on... His moves remind me of a certain #89...

I'll be ready to watch WVU against a coach that doesn't know all the plays.... before I determine if the line is bad lol.

Vinny Curry looked damn good for Marshall. Is WVU's oline that bad or is he that good?

WVU line is that bad. But I will follow Curry to see how he does the rest of the season.

    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history.
    • Also, Greg is counting 20M against the cap over the next two...that's a big amount for a TE, even as great as he is.  This year he has a bit of leverage. Important piece of the passing and now running game. High cap number, and we are trying to free up space to sign the G's. Extremely healthy past.   He's just leaning on DG to extend him, and I think that we likely do....although it's not imperative.
