Virginia Tech back on the schedule in 2021

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 […]

Cowboy Up: Rich Rod has no problem doing it

http://youtube.com/watch?v=RQZRpTvp-E8 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 […]

Trickett transfer may be what Holgorsen needs at WVU

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 […]

WVU’s new uniforms include gold helmet

http://youtube.com/watch?v=eXVTMuFGXCQ 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 […]

Great OSU Moments: Comeback win at Big House in ’75

http://youtube.com/watch?v=MvLko_NT3Cg 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 […]

WVU’s battle at quarterback is truly a four-man race

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, […]

Great WVU Moments: Wildest Backyard Brawl (1994)

</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 […]

Ohio State mascot gets laid out

http://youtube.com/watch?v=Hl40OBEdN08 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.

Great OSU Moments: Tomczak leads game-winning drive in ’84 Fiesta Bowl

http://youtube.com/watch?v=-_gfLeDP5Rs 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 […]

Great WVU Moments: Jeff Hostetler at Oklahoma (1982)

&lt;/center&gt;   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 […]

OSU Buckeyes: 2013 Student Appreciation Day

http://youtube.com/watch?v=0rUEdaZpnBc Ohio State football is one of the hottest tickets of all of college football — even for the student body. So the annual Student Appreciation Day is a great way to build some excitement during spring and give the student body an up-close view of the action. This year, OSU coach Urban Meyer has […]

Georgia Southern’s video hits the mark, move to FBS questioned

http://youtube.com/watch?v=PyvlXX3tllM Georgia Southern knows how to make an announcement. The above video is part of a comprehensive way in which the Stateboro, Ga., university announced it would make the jump from FCS to FBS in 2014. That's when the storied program will become a member of the Sun Belt Conference. I know programs like Marshall […]

Good news or bad news for Tavon Austin?

On Monday, West Virginia Illustrated reported that WVU receiver Tavon Austin has been invited by the NFL to attend the opening night of the draft on April 25. It would seem this is great news as WVU quarterback Geno Smith is almost guaranteed to go in the first round, and by inviting Austin, someone feels […]
