Preach, Brother, Preach

Gregg Doyel, despite his name ending with a double G, made a fantastic point about the upcoming Backyard Brawl. He preaches the same gospel that has been contained in nearly every WBGV sermon — namely, that Dave Wannstedt is good for Mountaineer football (anybody remember Save Dave?). Unfortunately, while it’s a good point, if the national media keeps bringing up the awfulness of Wannstedt, well, Pitt might just get the idea to fire him. And we can’t have that.

So, read this, digest it, and then forget it ever happened…

That’s with one more caveat. That’s the thing about this particular college football season: There’s always one more caveat. In this case the caveat is that West Virginia gets past neighborhood-nemesis Pittsburgh on Saturday. But then, that’s a game West Virginia can’t lose for all kinds of reasons. For one thing, halfback Steve Slaton is better than anyone Pittsburgh has, and Slaton is the Mountaineers’ fourth best skill player behind quarterback Pat White, receiver Darius Reynaud and fullback Owen Schmitt. For another, there’s Dave Wannstedt. Unless he’s fired between now and Saturday, he’ll coach Pittsburgh. Which means West Virginia can’t lose.

  1. Being a huge Chicago Bears fan, I’ve hated Wannstache for a long time. Please, gut shot for me.

  2. Charley, did you happen to come across the article, also on cbs sportsline, by one Mike Freeman, about “Hicks vs. Heehaws”? It should get your blood boiling…

    Fuck CBS and their piss poor, so-called “journalism”.

  3. I did see it. I just figured the message boards would get riled up enough for all of us.

    Inevitably, when something like this is written (Cowherd, etc.), there’s a few step-process that occurs:

    1) Furor
    2) E-mail writing campaign
    3) Bitching about the e-mail writing campaign
    4) Mountaineer fan on fan message board violence

    it happens everytime…and nothing ever changes. Let the guy write all the ignorant, dumbass shit he wants; I’m not going to lose any sleep. Why do it over someone who is so very obviously just trying to get people pissed off?

  4. You’re right…it’s just something I expect to see from a blog or message board, not a CBS employed, so-called journalist.
