After being bounced from the NCAA Tournament last year in their first game against Gonzaga, Bob Huggins and the Mountaineers of West Virginia will be looking to make it further this year against Buffalo. The Mountaineers hold a clear advantage when you look at program history. Buffalo is making their first appearance in the tournament […]
The no. 18 West Virginia Mountaineers men’s basketball team enters the postseason after one of their best season since 2009-2010, where the team made the Final Four. Led by Big 12 coach of the year Bob Huggins, the Mountaineers have employed a full-court press, affectionately calling themselves “Press Virginia.” This season has included wins against […]
Anytime West Virginia has played Kansas it has turned into must-see TV. When the Mountaineers hosted the Jayhawks on February 16th, Juwan Staten scored with a few seconds remaining, but a hectic scramble led to Perry Ellis having a layup opportunity to win at the buzzer, as his finger roll rolled off the basket and […]
Two teams trending in opposite directions square off at the WVU Coliseum in Morgantown, West Virginia on Tuesday night. The Mountaineers had a successful six-game stretch that saw them play against five ranked teams. After losing consecutive games to Oklahoma and Baylor, West Virginia beat Kansas State, but followed that effort by dropping a road […]
WVU coach Dana Holgorsen feels fortunate to escape with a 24-17 win against William & Mary in the opener and he promises the team will get better. Next up is a road trip to Norman, Okla., to take on the Sooners.
Take the time to ponder this for a moment: the next time WVU plays Virginia Tech the guys taking the field in that game are currently in elementary school and junior high. The two nationally relevant programs announced today that they will square off again in 2021 (Morgantown, W.Va.) and 2022 (Blacksburg, Va.). The fact […]
For three years at Michigan, Rich Rodriguez never looked comfortable. He was taking flak for leaving his alma mater for the Wolverines and very few folks were embracing him in Ann Arbor. I'm on the record as saying Rich Rod will one day return to Morgantown and coach WVU again, but the more I see […]
West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen was hoping to find a starting quarterback during Saturday’s spring game. Paul Millard and Ford Childress each had their moments during the game and tried to make a case to be the No. 1 guy. Millard threw touchdown passes of 10, 46 and 24 yards, while Childress connected with Jordan […]
It's a new day and of course there's a college football team unveiling new uniforms. Today, it was West Virginia and I almost hate to admit it, but I like the new options. The gold matte helmet is sweet and will be the first time since the 1970s since the Mountaineers haven't worn a blue […]
In recent years, Ohio State fans have had plenty to celebrate against rival Michigan. It seems like Jim Tressel never lost to the Wolverines and so far Urban Meyer is 1-0. So some of the newer fans don't realize it used to be tough to defeat that Team Up North. Flashback to 1975 and Woody […]
West Virginia has been here before. There was the “Who will replace Jeff Hostetler?” Then came the “Who will replace Major Harris?” The same can be said for Marc Bulger and Pat White. Now you can add Geno Smith to the list. Typically there is a one- or two-year transition with someone like Greg Jones, […]
</center> The 1994 season was a bit of a disappointment, especially coming off a 11-1 campaign the year before. But the Mountaineers didn't have Jake Kelchner or Darren Studstill at quarterback any longer and there were some growing pains with Chad Johnston. But the West Virginia native had one of his best moments against the […]
With every coach trying to one-up the other on Student Appreciation Days at spring practice, it seems we get a YouTube clip every day. Now Ohio State mascot Brutus is getting into the action and in a way that he might regret (and avoid in the future). Dude got laid out.
With a storied tradition like Ohio State's, it's tough to pick some of the Buckeyes' most memorable games. But let's start at the 1984 Fiesta Bowl when the Buckeyes took on Pittsburgh when the Panthers still mattered. Leading most of the game, the Buckeyes still had to rally to take down the John Congemi-led Panthers. […]
</center> Spring practice is almost over and before we all know it, we'll be in the depths of the offseason. So to cheer us all up a bit, we'll post some random great moments in WVU football history. We get it started today with the game that put Don Nehlen and Jeff Hostetler on […]
