You’re Fired

Bill Stewart.  Jeff Mullen.  Dave Johnson.

Ok, you’ve had your year.  You’ve proven your ineptitude.  Goodbye.

You changed the entire offense because we lost to Pitt last year.  Now instead of one bad offenseive game against Pitt, we have played 11 bad offensive games, and still lost to Pitt.

I love a good QB zone on 3rd and 9 twice in one game.  I love a ridiculous trick play to the short side of the field on 3rd and goal at the 4.  I love that our only TD was on a miraculous run by Pat White on an otherwise terrible 3rd and 4 call.  But I especially like losing 4 games in a regular season and having your scoring drop 20 points per game when you return 9 starters on offense.

Thank you Jeff Mullen for bringing the Wake Forest field-goal offense to Morgantown.  I’m going to go kill myself now, wait, not me, you.

On Location: Backyard Brawl!

A last minute change of plans has my fuckbuddy girlfriend and myself heading to Heinz Field for the Backyard Brawl. I hope we win today.

I will also be carrying golf balls with Pitt logos on them. Why? If WVU needs a swing in momentum I will throw them on the field so Pitt gets a 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. (I ain’t Stewpid, are I??)

Eat Shit Pitt!

‘Son, that’s Pitt. You hate Pitt now. You hate Pitt tomorrow. You hate Pitt until the day you die. After that, you will hate Pitt for eternity.’   — Jack Fleming’s Mom

Thinking about Pitt makes me want to puke, then punch a puppy. For last year’s Backyard Brawl, I did not think about Pitt once. All I could think about was Bourbon Street and who we would play in the national championship game.

If last year taught me anything, it was to never overlook Pitt. If there was any positive to last year, it is that I have a new-found hatred for Pitt. With that new-found hatred, here is a list of reasons why I hate Pitt.

If that picture doesn’t do it for you, let me list all the reasons why Pitt sucks:

Karma Can Be A Bitch

Cam Saddler

There was news yesterday that heralded Shitt recruit Cam Saddler tore his ACL during a non-contact drill. This is a big blow to a team that expected him contribute as a true freshman.

While some of you may be smiling because Saddler cheered for Pitt during his official visit to Morgantown last year. You should wipe that smile off your damn face. It is never appropriate to cheer or root for a kid to get injured. Remember, karma is a bitch and it could happen to a guy on our team too.

Charley and I had an infamous incident in which we almost caused a fight at Kegler’s after some idiot cheered when Micheal Bush broke his leg against Kentucky in ’06. I for one hope Saddler fully recovers, makes it back for next years Backyard Brawl at Mountaineer Field, and gets his head taken off when catching a pass over the middle.  That, would be the appropriate form of payback.

Don’t be an asshole and cheer when opposing players get injured. If you cheer near me when an opposing player gets hut, expect a shoe to the side of the face.  (stepping off soapbox)

Pitt’s Tricky Gameplan Not All That Tricky

Pitt, fresh off its upset victory over WVU third consecutive season without a bowl, has decided to ramp up their offense. How, you ask? Simple: take carries away from one of the most heralded running backs in the country, LaSean McCoy.

In a word, brilliant. I can’t wait to see how successful this turns out.

“The reality is we have two starting tailbacks,” Pitt running backs coach David Walker said. “They are both going to play a lot and they are both going to play together at times because when we put them out there together it opens up a whole new challenge for defenses trying to stop us.”

Actually, it really doesn’t. All defenses have to do is cover LaSean McCoy and leave Stephens-Howling wide open. Seems pretty simple to me.

Oh my

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.
