Contrary to popular belief (see: SEC fans), there are a lot of tough games on this year’s schedule. The Big East has transformed itself into a deep conference where no game is an automatic win (exception: any Greg Robinson coached team). But beyond the conference slate, WVU faces two very tough non-conference tests: Colorado and Auburn (maybe three, if you count ECU…but I’m not).
Most of the focus has been given to the Auburn game. It’s easy to see why: two marquee national powers doing battle in the middle of October on national television. Plus it’s the holy-fucking-shit SEC, a conference so strong it’s trying to replace the NFC (please, please, note the sense of sarcasm). But maybe Auburn isn’t the game we should be most worried about.

In case you didn’t know, there are only 25 days until WVU’s opening kick-off against Nova. So get ready for our Mountaineers to lay it on the line, strain, and “atackle” on August 30. If you need some action to tide you over until then, here are some videos I have watched over and over in the offseason…

That would be Terence Kerns, who despite a year of prep school, is a true freshman. He could probably count on one hand the times he’s worked out in the WVU strength program….and he looks like that. And he runs a sub 4.4 40.
Seriously, I’m not gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I really do like women, I swear. But I will put this out there: if Terence Kerns walked up to me without a shirt on, I can’t make any promises…

…at least when that summer camp involves Mountaineer football. My camp never did. It was disguised as “active camp,” but fat camp by any other name is still fat camp. But, you know what? It worked. Three bouts of bulimia later and I weigh a very healthy 200 pounds.
Anywho…the 2008 version of the West Virginia Mountaineers opened camp today in Morgantown. If you’re like me, you’re as giddy as a schoolgirl. This day has been 8 months in the making, and we’re finally hitting the home stretch of the countdown to football season. And once that season starts, the silly distractions of the Product Rodriguez fiasco and “is our baseball coach in the KKK” finally go away. We can finally focus on making opposing defenses look silly and killing our respective livers with booze.
Which is just fine by me.

As far as I am concerned, Coach Stew is already 1-0 on the season (2-0 if you count Villanova, 3-0 if you count Syracuse). Why? Because he chose to not to renew redshirt-freshman Kendall Washington’s scholarship. Sure, back in May, it was a decision that didn’t seem all that consequential to anything, save for maybe our depth at wide receiver. But today, that decision is proving just a tad more valuable.
The man told police the masked robber came to his bedroom as he slept, demanded money and jewelry, then shot him twice.
The victim couldn’t see the gunman’s face, but city police have charged former St. Thomas Aquinas High School football star Kendall M. Washington with aggravated robbery and felonious assault. A grand jury now will take a look at the evidence to see if he should stand trial.
I think I speak for all West Virginia fans when I say, “WHEW!” That was certainly a close one. Either Stew is a fantastic judge of character or he has finally developed a reliable means of time travel. Personally, my bet is on time travel, which should make play-calling much, much easier this year.
Also, thankfully, our Fulmer Cup rep should be saved upon reconsideration.

This is going to be a long month of waiting for opening kick-off. At least camp is about ready to open, so get ready for us to start over analyzing the defensive depth chart. Also, WVU landed Nick Kindler an offensive lineman from PA. The Daily Mail says he has a “mean streak.”
EAT SHIT PITT!

The title of this article does not reflect my love for science fiction movies that are eventually made into TV shows. No, no, and no. Rather, it is in reference to our recruiting haul so far this season. While we have not been scoring 5 star guys like Heastie and Boyd, the depth and potential we are collecting is unheard of for WVU at this point. We willland at least 4 more 4 or 5 star guys by signing day.
