Game Thread: West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Cincinnati Bearcats

Now that the Capital Classic is in the books, it's nothing but Big East opponents for the remainder of the regular season for WVU. Today, Mick Cronin brings his Bearcats into the Coliseum to take on his old mentor, Bob Huggins, and the Mountaineers. The Bearcats are sitting alone in second place in the Big East standings and come into this game on quite a roll with only a loss to St. John's marring their record since the melee with Xavier. WVU also comes into this game riding a wave of confidence after dispatching decent Rutgers and Marshall teams in convincing fashion and knowing that they could/should have won the game at UConn. One thing going against the Mountaineers is that they look to still be without the services of Deniz Kilicli. Kevin Noreen filled in nicely last time out and will need to again if WVU wants to continue their climb in the Big East standings.

Televised coverage is being provided by ESPNU at 3 pm EST today for the sold out game. The football recruits should get a nice show with a capacity crowd (assuming the weather doesn't keep too many from attending) on hand to watch the game and honor the 2012 Orange Bowl Champion's at halftime.

So, find yourself a warm, comfortable spot, prop up the feet, grab your favorite beverage or 11 and join us in running commentary, random observations, snark, wit, hopes, fears, cheers and jeers in the comments section.

And, as always...
