Don't feel good about this one at all after the last 2 games. I'm confident the team can pull it together, I just don't know if they will. Gonna be tough to come out of Morgantown with the win, but Sic'em Bears!!

To me, just winning today would be all the "statement" I need to see.
That which does not kill me, will try again and get nastier

I'd feel better had West Virginia not smashed the hell out of OSU before OSU beat our tails in at home with a pathetic 8-7 record.

But they did and I can't. They prove me wrong, yay them.

Well no Akinjo or Sochan. Going to be a tough one just hoping we're competitive at this point. We need to get healthy as soon as possible the back half of the schedule is much much tougher.

I'm scratching my head at why KB seems to lose so many loose balls.

CSD pulls him quickly.

You'll probably need to try and pick up Waco 1660 or some Tyler station...I'm listening to Sirrius 375 on my XM phone app at work.
