Was It All A Bad Wet Dream?


After only a couple hours sleep, I woke up from the drug induced comma hoping that it was Thursday morning. Unfortunately, it is Friday and we are a sub .500 team. From the moment I stepped out of bed I have been shaking my head in disbelief. Did we really just get beat 17-14? We are supposed to win a 17-14 game, that is WVU's famous score.

I still have not received much clarity of thought about what occurred last night. I'm angry, disappointed, embarrassed, and I feel bad for our players who left it all out on the field only to be done in by poor coaching. The players should not be ashamed of their performance last night. The coaches should have their tails tucked between their legs like a dog that shit on the new carpet.

When I say players should not be ashamed, it does not mean they played the perfect game. The O-Line got dominated on third and short opportunities and the secondary still looked confused at times. What I'm saying is that the team came out with intensity and showed massive improvement from previous weeks. Did the coaches "coach'em up" or are they succeeding because of their raw talent? Only time will tell.

The coaching was vomit inducing. Any ten year old playing Playstation and X-Box can manage the clock better than HCBS. Why leave a timeout on the board? Did HCBS think there was a 5th quarter? Why not run a naked bootleg, with the FB or TE sneaking into the flat on those third and short opportunities? Shouldn't you give Devine a quick breather on 2nd down rather than have him be too tired to carry the ball on the most important play of the game? The head coach should be in the huddle when the players are about to take the field for the most important play of the game.

I could go on and on about HCBS's mistakes but I don't want to punch the guy in the cubicle next to me again so I'm going to end with some notes I took during last night's game.

Jesse Palmer is a huge pussy. He thought every WVU hit was illegal or late. If the only way you can get laid as an NFL player is by going on The Bachelor, you are a loser. Go wear cut off jean shorts you idiot.

There were multiple times the ESPN announcers laughed at the WVU coaching mistakes. They commented numerous times about how HCBS was looking like a lost old man on the WVU sidelines. It was an embarrassment to the entire state.

I'm going to interpret this quote from HCBS. After the game he said, "I don't second guess....I absolutely wouldn't change a thing." What I hear, "I'm fine with losing because golly gee willieackers I love this great group of young men. As long as I'm proud of them we are undefeated in my heart. We can just play a bowl game at our practice facility and the season will be a success" WTF! Strap in for a long season.

Patrick White is the best player in Mountaineer sports history. Better than West, Major, and Hot Rod. I feel really bad for that young man right now. He puts his heart and soul into every thing he does. He plays every play like it is the last snap he will ever take. Thank you Patrick, keep it up, we are still behind you.
