So you're the guy that walks in the party, brings up politics, and clears the room?
Lighten up Francis. It’s a joke About Ted Cruz, who is a politician at a relevant sporting event. If it was a movie star or musician, it would be fair game. I’ll leave it alone as, believe it or not, I really don’t want to derail the thread.

Edit: my real point is that Cruz is a prick that most Republicans don’t even like. Seems perfect that he’s a UT fan.

Not a joke. You were being a jerk, as usual.

WVU is now a community college-at best.
The Neal Brown era is over.
1-11 is possible.

Hopefully the ad is fired as well. WVU passed over Luke Fickel to hire neal Brown.

Neal Brown's teams just step on the rake over and over and over.


WVU will win this conference every 4-5 years, just like it did in the old BE. Just needed the right coach--DH isnt good, we have seen that @ Houston which was expected to be a top group of 5 program this year.

Big 12 has good teams, but no better than Miami in its heyday or VT who won like 5 of 7 ACC titles after they left the BE for the ACC. And while Cuse, Pitt, and BC all suck now, they were top 25ish teams back then.

Neil Brown and VK are the real deal. DH left them no cards to play with on offense. Will take time to rebuild that oline, and DH didnt even leave a qb on the roster who could start for Rice. NB is a known guru in recruiting, and WVU will get the players it needs to beat Texas and OU just like they beat Miami and VT when they had better players.

So you go from winning this conference every 4-5 years to being a community college?

cant step away from ledge.

1. NB has over a 20 million dollar buyout. he was extended despite a losing record.

2. the WVU team that beat clemson 70-33, and it couldve been 100 points, had 12 NFL players on it, 2 who were taken in 1st 8 picks, one who was the 1st defensive player taken.

The recruiting now just isnt what it was. there's no Bruce, or Tavon. and the lineup doesnt have 2 much less 12 nfl players out there.

3. WVU lost 4 defensive starters to NIL/portal. All 4 are productive starters at Miami, Miss State, FSU, and Rutgers.

I see no good end for WVU football. Not when its best players will be snapped up by teams with more money.

Can they sweep their non conference and win 2 more conference tilts to become bowl eligible?

KU plays a Houston this week. That will be a tough game. Then they have Duke, ISU, and TCU at home.

IF- Huge IF - they can do a 3/1 split in those games they may have a chance. I’m not sure they will be favored in any of those games. That would put them at 5/1. Just needing 1 game.

Very Very Unlikely:
@OU
@Baylor
Texas
OSU

Unlikely
@KSU
@Tech

If they can come out 5/1, they will need to pull a road upset or pull a huge upset.

Personally I see them splitting Houston and Duke, splitting ISU and TCU and maybe picking up one more…. Ending the season with 4 maybe 5 wins. Which would be a HUGE win. Most wins since 2009.

If they win this week they can get the taco breaths and couch burners. I see them getting the whorns, whirlwinds or goons before the mildcats. We will know how good rayplor and our beloved Pokes are very soon.

What do you mean they can go get the couch burners? They have already beaten them.
