I have been absent for far too long. It is a very hard habit to break. I have at least 20 post in waiting to actually post but for some reason they never make it.
Life is great, but that my friends, is another story. Today I need to talk about football. My favorite part of fall, one of my favorite parts about WV, one of my favorite topics.
We started off this year with a new coach, I was very excited. I strongly disliked our old one. We have a few bugs that need worked out, but things are going OK. We are 3-0 and have a big game coming up this weekend. LSU. If you haven't heard they are #2 in the Nation. We are #16. Big game, big deal.
Even bigger deal, for the first time in my life and HISTORY, ESPN College Game Day is coming to town. Umm Crap. I may have an excitement overload. Our town, well we get pretty rough. Fire Marshalls have already started taking couches off of porches. We burn them if you haven't heard! I am not Proud or Promote this, FYI. We also pregame harder than most party. We have a reputation of being bad (this will be revisited soon). But most importantly, our fans are amazing (for the most part). Our coaches, players (any sport), there is just something there.
I will be partaking in the normal, happy, toss a few beers back tailgates. I will cheer loudly and sing proudly when we beat LSU Saturday.
And if that wasn't make your heart stop beating exciting enough, well hold on! Because we are also starting a new path, right into the hearts of the SEC Conference. They don't want us, we know it. But they are taking us. I love the Big East, it has been our home and it will be hard for me accept we are no longer with them. (I mean hellooooo 'Bama is a FAR away roadtrip) But we will be with the more elite kids now, Right? I am not a huge fan of this move but I am trying not to think about it.
Right now, all I can think about is trying to meet Kirk Herbstreit and beating #2 LSU. And hoping for no riots, couches burnt or pepper spray. Let's GO!!!
