Post-Game Hangover - LSU (9/25/11) Edition

MORGANTOWN, WV - SEPTEMBER 24: Stedman Bailey #3 of the West Virginia Mountaineers catches a pass in front of Tharold Simon #24 of the Louisiana State University Tigers in the first half during the game on September 24, 2011 at Mountaineer Field in Morgantown, West Virginia.

It was definitely an electric atmosphere in Morgantown all day and into the night yesterday, but horrendous field position and turnovers were the undoing of our Mountaineers.  After being down 27-7 at the half, the team showed some resilience that I wasn't sure they had against arguably the best team in the country.  Regardless, it was still a winnable game and a loss is still a loss and it hurts.  We have articles, recaps, features and videos from all over the state and around the country covering WVU's defeat last night by LSU.
