I would give up pepperoni rolls for a month to have Old Dominion beat VT today.— West Virginia Take Me Home (@NiteStare) September 22, 2018
I have absolutely hated that VT jumped so high in the polls after beating FSU, who is total trash this season. I made fresh pepperoni rolls before our game. I had to watch my six-year old stuff his face with them. I couldn’t be happier.
Kentucky Wildcats 28, #14 Mississippi State Bulldogs 7

My Top 25

- Notre Dame
- West Virginia
- Penn State
- Michigan State
- Mississippi State
- Texas Tech
- Oklahoma State
- Boise State
We’ve returned back to normal and Alabama is the clear #1. In reality there is Alabama, then there is a second tier of Georgia, Clemson, Ohio State, then there is everyone else. Right now, I fully believe WVU is playing like a top ten team and there is a good chance we could be top ten in one or both polls but now comes the hard part, there are fewer teams ahead of us so we have to keep winning and hope one of those teams lose. It is going to be a much slower climb from here.
I have felt that VT was overrated so I am absolutely using the ass-kicking they got from Old Dominion to drop them out of the rankings. Don’t care.
