We Saved Dave; WVU Now 2-0 In 2008

Yes, boys and girls, our persistent efforts have payed off. We, single-handedly, “Saved Dave.” Wondering what I’m talking about? Well then, check here. And here.

This will be Owen Schmitt’s last appearance at Mountaineer Field. In one of the most unlikely stories in WVU history, Owen Schmitt has become a true star in Morgantown. Tales of his exploits will live on in these hills for years and decades to come. I think I speak for all of us when I say, “we’ll miss you Owen.”
