It’s never the wisest decision to put a quarterback who was once a Heisman favorite this season in position to beat you with his arm. But that’s exactly where the Longhorns placed Mountaineer QB Will Grier on Saturday, and they paid the price in excruciating fashion.
West Virginia Governor Jim Justice appeared at Sunday night’s NCAA Tournament game between West Virginia and Marshall wearing a suit that was both deeply and intentionally unfortunate. Justice is a Marshall University graduate—his wife and daughter are, as well—and, if you’re just joining us, a West Virginia native.…
At the beginning of this college basketball season, ESPN brought Texas A&M and West Virginia all the way to Germany for a game at Ramstein Air Base. For the entire trip, ESPN Productions, Inc. paid the Air Force a total of $140,129.45, according to an invoice obtained via Freedom of Information Act request. The…
West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins was ejected from Saturday’s 77-69 loss at 13th-ranked Kansas, for arguing with officials over foul calls. Huggins felt like the refs were giving his 20th-ranked team a raw deal. He might’ve had a point!
Will Grier, quarterback for the West Virginia Mountaineers, had something go very urgently wrong with the middle finger on his throwing hand in the first half of today’s tilt against Texas:
Alek Manoah is a big, talented pitcher for West Virginia who snagged this line drive out of the sky and got his team a slick double play.
Gonzaga beat West Virginia tonight, 61-58, to advance to the Elite Eight, thanks to a clutch three-pointer from Jordan Mathews and several duds from WVU’s Jevon Carter on the other end.
Now that Vin Scully’s retired, Verne Lundquist reigns supreme as the patriarch of sports broadcasting. The CBS legend got a bit more into the game than usual, though, before today’s broadcast of the Notre Dame-WVU game in Buffalo. Ouch!
West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins went to his knees and was attended to by medical staff just before halftime of last night’s win over Texas 77-62 win over Texas. He’s okay, but it was a scary moment for everyone, especially Huggins—his defibrillator went off.
Officials whistled WVU’s Elijah Macon for a foul on this play; all three refs were looking directly at the play—in which two Texas players foul each other, and no Mountaineers are to blame for anything—and they still screwed it up. Big 12 officials seem as good at their jobs as Texas’s basketball and football teams…
Yes, West Virginia is up big at the half over Texas. But spiritually, we don’t see how they ever recover from the devastation of this Jarrett Allen dunk.
Sometimes, the offense just ain’t working; that’s when being first in the nation in forced turnovers tends to help.
Sound the beef alarm, assuming you own one. We have a tiff between former West Virginia football player and current Oakland Raider Bruce Irvin, and ex-WVU QB and draft prospect Skyler Howard.
Then-undefeated Baylor became the #1 team in the nation for the first time in school history on Monday. A day later, the Bears got blown out by West Virginia, and I hope they enjoyed their lone day in the number one spot, because it’s almost assuredly gone after this week.
Who knows who was actually in line first, but two college football fans turned a disagreement over the urinal queue into something much more.
Look at this catch, man.
WVU coach Bob Huggins wasn’t so happy with a call late in the first half of the Mountaineers’ Big 12 battle against Oklahoma State, and he let the officials know it in the quietest and least-profane way possible.
