Welcome, By-Godder's, to the Fall Down Pass Out. Hope everyone had a great weekend! Hope you all got that grass and Lou Carnesecca sweater mowed. Looks like the rain is coming in today. Inside we have interviews from Bob Huggins Fantasy Camp, looks back at Dale Blaney and "The Run" by Quincy Wilson and more.

Before that, we want to send out our most sincere condolences to the friends and family of those involved with the shootings in Aurbun this weekend.

Mountaineer Links

Bob Huggins Fantasy Camp - WV Illustrated - Some video interviews with former Mountaineers that came in for the camp. If anyone out there attended, please feel free to add your thoughts in the comments or do a fan post. We'd love to hear your perspective.

Dale Blaney great as a cager and Sprint car racer- Register Herald - I was always confused by Blaney's decision to give up basketball for a racing career. He was THE sharpshooter of the Mountaineer basketball teams of my youth. With Jerry West as the GM of the Lakers, it all seemed to line up for him.

A Decade Later, Wilson's Run Lives on in WVU Lore - Connect Bridgeport - An interview with Wilson about that great run.

Recruiting at WVU very busy - Parkersburg News and Sentinel - Cashing in on the Orange Bowl and the move to the Big 12.

Curtis Jones joins WVU staff - WV Illustrated - It's been a little under the radar with the news of Quincy Wilson joining the staff. Jones will be the assistant athletic director for academic support.

Old WVU Highlights - Some folks at the BGN football forum have posted links to youtube highlights from 1973, 1976, 1966, 1969, and the 1969 Backyard Brawl. Hat tip to Drummer Boy 75 for posting links.

WVU's Parsons assures visibility - Charleston Gazette - For anyone worried that WVU would not be on television this year.

Big 12 Links

Best individual seasons ever- ESPN Blog - David Ubben asks the Big 12 readers to chime in on their "best seasons ever."

Can Oklahoma State build to a national title in 2012 - ESPN Blog - It's not what they lost, it's what they still have.

82 days to kickoff - Counting down the days with Bring On The Cats.

Earl Campbell to be the subject of a NBC documentary - Barking Carnival - Certainly one of the best ever. Just ask Isiah Robinson (the guy that tried to tackle Campbell with his chest).
