It’s (Sweet 16) Gameday!

Tonight, we play Xavier. Tonight, we beat Xavier. This morning, I stole a line from a fictional high school coach’s inspirational speech in Varsity Blues. Screw Bud Kilmer — and screw Xavier too.

Anyways, tonight’s game tips at 7:10, or 5:10 4:10 Phoenix time (yes, 4:10). You remember Phoenix, right? Last time I checked, the Mountaineers have some recent history in that city. Something about a Fiesta Bowl. Ahh, I don’t remember, I was hammered.

At press time, we’re a 1 point favorite. When the line opened, it immediately jumped from a pick ’em to -1 and money has consistently favored the Mountaineers since then. Needless to say, it’s not just the people inside this state’s borders who like us to knock off the #3 seeded Musketeers.

Basically, it’s best case scenario. We’re hungry, we’re favored, and we can still play the part of the underdog with the lower seed. Plus Drew Lavender is really short, so things are looking up.

  1. LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOO…….

  2. MOUNTAINEERS!!!!

  3. I say start Jarett Brown and just hit them in the mouth Schmitt-style and watch them bleed. Now that’s high quality mountaineer sports.

    Oh, yeah, after that – go ahead and play the game.

  4. Is Jarett Brown our version of the Hanson brothers??

    The ball goes up … and the swinging starts??

  5. One last thing – thank you Dan Dakich. If you hadn’t been such a pussy and quit, you might still be the coach at WVU. Pussies rule!

    Did I say that out loud?

  6. Here’s some great footage of Drew Lavender for all those who can’t wait another 8 hours to see him play.

  7. Jack Schmitt you fool! Scientists have been trying to replicate and harness the power of a Schmitt hit. It can’t be done.

    I think Jarrett Brown should just set picks all day. He’s massive compared to most, if not all, players out there.
