The West Virginia Mountaineers did what it took yesterday and survived #TeamChaos. The Mountaineers again went scoreless in the second half but they won. Winning is all that counts and because they won, they are still ranked. You know who didn’t survive #TeamChaos? The Virginia Tech Hokies. The Hokies played dumb and lost to Paul Johnson and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. That loss was Tech’s second straight and the Hokies are now on a runaway train to losing a season that started out brilliantly.

For the Mountaineers, dropping in the AP poll isn’t exactly surprising. The Mountaineers have been so inconsistent that voters have no idea what to make of the team. Even Jake Spavital is aware of how hot and cold the team can run.

The Mountaineers, move up one spot to #25 in the coaches poll. The Mountaineers were on the cusp of the rankings last week and thanks to several losses, are now ranked in both polls.
