KEYS TO THE SERIES

  • Stranded. STOP LEAVING SO MANY GUYS ON BASE!!! Ten against Oklahoma State on Thursday, eleven against Texas Tech on Friday. That’s too much!
  • Just play Mountaineer baseball. Get the runs home and keep showing the country (and the selection committee) what this team can do.

HOW AFRAID SHOULD WE BE? (SCALE 1-10)

Five. I’m as afraid of the Pokes as I am of a showdown between Donald and Daffy Duck.

PREDICTION THAT WILL HOPEFULLY BE WRONG

WVU exacts revenge against the Cowboys to set their sights on getting even more revenge against TCU on Sunday.
