KEYS TO THE GAME
- Bullpen. The bullpen collapsed against Maryland back in April. If the Mountaineers can get some good outings out of their bullpen, then they should be in good shape.
- Left on base. STOP LEAVING TWO OR THREE RUNNERS ON BASE EVERY INNING!!!
HOW AFRAID SHOULD WE BE? (SCALE 1-10)
Six. I’m as afraid of the Terps as I am of Sheldon the Turtle.
PREDICTION THAT SHOULD BE RIGHT
The Mountaineers exact revenge on the biggest game they’ve played since the Clinton administration.
West Virginia beats Maryland
