Or in football two seasons ago when we had a top ten showdown with Oklahoma in Morgantown with the conference title in view. We managed to fall apart. Or dare I bring up what happened in 2007!!!

I hope this team can handle it! I know our QB can, but can everyone else?
Better belt in, Chris. This may just be the year that takes you for a wild ride!

I have liked WVU since they began playing in the Big 12. And I would love to see WVU beat OU. This may be the year to do it.

I haven't heard much about who OU's QB.

Coach Bill Snyder is out from KS State, isn't he? I pretty much agree with your predictions but it could be wishful thinking on my part.

The sad part about Roller Coaster rides is that they all start off going up, but then they always end at a slow pace at the bottom!

I agree that if there was any year to beat OU, it's this year! Home game, solid team, and a never give up attitude QB. Oklahoma's QB is solid. He actually started the WV game last season because Baker Mayfield was involved in an altercation with some alcohol and the law However, after the first series, Baker found his way to the field. Murray is their new QB, and he will be good enough to keep OU's offense high octane!

Bill Snyder is still coaching at Kansas State. He is going go Joe Paterno's win record!

I read Murray was drafted by the Oakland As. I read a little bit about him after I posted. And I watched the highlights from last years OU/WVU game.

I went to K State right after Coach Bill Snyder took over. There was some talk about him making $150K/year while the President of KSU only made $125K/year! That is peanuts!

Snyder is the kind of coach that the players will play their hearts out for him. I went to every home game from 1990 to 1995. I saw Nebraska when they were awesome. I loved watching them rumble around end. It was a sight to behold!

I have always respected OU's program, but I hated Stoops for some reason.

Good luck this season.

4 Days Until #17 WVU vs. Tennessee

I don't know about you all, but I am about to lose all control of myself in excitement for football season! What a great opening weekend we will have in store, with great match-ups all across the country. West Virginia will be in the mix of it all with its neutral site opener verse the Vols. I am a little nervous about our linebackers, but other than that we will have a stout team I feel. I heard that Tennessee is having some depth issues among their defensive backs, and even had to switch a running back to the defensive side of the ball. If that is the case, our offense should be able to score quick and often. We have great wide outs, decent running backs, an experienced offensive line, and arguably the best QB in the country! If our defense can amount some stops verse an iffy Vol offensive scheme, then we should be able to win by multiple scores! I am more optimistic about our chances now, but I am not counting the chickens before they hatch just yet. We still have a lot to prove.

Also, forgot to mention that we have two (yes I repeat 2!!!) AP preseason first team All-Americans in Will Grier and David Sills! That doesn't happen too often in Morgantown, and I believe the last time two selected preseason were Remington Award winner Dan Moses and Super Steve Slaton. Both were part of a golden era for West Virginia Football! If Grier and Sills can play at a level that they are capable of, then we are in for an exciting season.


WVUSports released this video, enjoy!
