It's the Final Countdown

We are now just 5 days from the opening of fall camp on Friday. And tomorrow Bill Stewart will be in Newport, Rhode Island for Big East media day, or college fotball's equivalent of the Beverly Hillbillies.

Even with all the questions, look for WVU to be in the top 2 in the preseason media poll based on our recent conference dominance. Writers don't have anymore faith in Bill Stewart than I do, but it's hard to ignore the fact we have been ranked in the top 10 at least one week for each of the past 5 years.

Even though this is the least excited I've been for the start of a football season since 2005, or maybe 2002, I am still excited. I will prepare for the worst and hope for the best. It's nice to see the football season right around the corner.
