    West Virginia Mountaineers

    Post  california2003 on Tue Nov 30, 2010 2:14 am

    MORGANTOWN - The West Virginia Mountaineers announced their new head coach this week after Bill Stewart suddenly retired. Stewart reportedly went blind during the Back Yard Brawl after staring at two sets of Nike Pro Combat uniforms, the uniforms were quickly burned after the game. Coach Cal, formerly at Utah, was announced as their new head coach.*

    "I'd like to thank everyone at Utah, especially those who tolerated my on field tirades over officiating." said Coach Cal at his first press conference at WVU, "I loved my time at Utah, but I couldn't say no to the Mountaineers."

    The Mountaineers have struggled to dominate the Big East ever since Rich Rodriguez left for Michigan, so the departure of Bill Stewart has been welcomed by fans. Cal spent time in Morgantown over the summer, studying the offense, and became acquainted with the WVU program. Coach Cal ran one of the nation's top offenses at Utah, albeit with a great young QB in Jordan Wynn, so fans should look forward to great things from Geno Smith.

    * Utah was glitchy, I wasn't getting my pipelines and it didn't fix itself for season two.

    Ha, well if I could get pipelines I'd just stay at Utah. I wish I could bring Jordan Wynn with me.

    (#17, 1-0) WVU 38 - (0-1) Maryland 17

    MORGANTOWN - West Virginia opened the season today with a heated rivalry game against Maryland. The Mountaineer offense would have a new look at most skill positions, notably no Noel Devine, so the Terps had hopes of taking this one.

    The home crowd would be excited to see what a summer of Coach Cal's hard work would do for QB Geno Smith, and they would be seriously let down. From the first play of the game this rivalry turned into a turnover pissing contest, and the Terps would lose... barely.

    Maryland took the opening kickoff and promptly fumbled the ball away, giving West Virginia the ball on the 14. WVU's opening drive was not a great success, two short passes resulted in a 3rd and 2, luckily the next play was a TD run by HB Daquan Hargrett. Maryland came back on the next drive and looked to score, but a long pass into the endzone found WVU's star FS Keith Tandy for a touchback instead. Things got worse for the Terps on the very next play when Geno Smith found a streaking Tavon Austin for an 80 yard TD. Maryland followed up another failed drive with an INT, and great field position. Despite all of their problems the Terps found the endzone with a short run to fall behind 14-7.

    The second quarter turned into a boon for Maryland, mostly thanks to Geno Smith's arm. WVU made it 21-7 on a short pass to Austin, his second, but after that it was all Maryland. Geno Smith managed to find the defense with three more passes, a giant boost for Maryland. Unfortunately the Terps only managed a TD on a 19 yard pass and FG off 3 turnovers. Both teams headed into the half to the sound of booing, the WVU players looking disappointed with a 21-17 lead.



    Austin's 80 yarder got the crowd going.
    The Mountaineers came back out for the second half with a look of determination on their faces, no doubt fresh off an expletive laden speech. Whatever Coach Cal said must have worked, because it looked like a new WVU on both sides of the ball. The Terps started off well, marching down the field, but they gift wrapped another INT in the endzone. The Mountaineers ran right over the Terps, making use of their ground game, and Hargrett punched it in from 1 yard out for his second TD of the game. Another failed Maryland drive gave WVU the ball again, and HB Trey Johnson found the endzone for a 35-17 lead.

    The fourth quarter was extremely frustrating for Maryland fans, and even more so for the players. A long and arduous drive set up the Terps with 1st and goal on the 8, but the new look Mountaineers would be ready to stop them. A stuffed run, a sack, and a short pass left Maryland with 4th and 2. After taking a TO to think about it, the Terps went for it and WVU stuffed them. The crowd had gone from booing at the half to frenzied and overjoyed. The Mountaineers came out with Coach Cal's patented soul draining running game and wore down the clock. With time running out, sitting on Maryland's 27 yard line, Coach Cal called a TO and sent out the kicking team just to be an asshole. K Tyler Bitancurt promptly nailed a 37 yard FG as time expired to close out the game 38-17.

    The story of the game would be turnovers, both teams would combine for 9. Maryland turned over the ball 5 times with 3INT and 2 fumbles. West Virginia tried to do one better by turning it over 4 times, all INTs, but they just couldn't cut it. Geno Smith had a horrible game, if WVU's offense is going to succeed he will have to cut down on the bad passes.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - G.Smith (WVU) 340 yards 2TD-4INT
    Rushing - D.Hargrett (WVU) 107 yards 2TD
    Receiving - T.Austin (WVU) 178 yards 2TD
    Defense - K.Tandy (WVU) 6 tackles, 2 TFL, INT, FMBREC

    Well first of all the game automatically generates ones, most of the time they suck balls.

    1 - If you create ones yourself, along with the ones the game creates, go to MY NCAA in the OD menu.
    2 - There is a "Game Highlights" section, scroll to the year (it lists by season/year), then pick the game, find the photo/video you want and upload it to EA Sports.
    3 - Go to your player hub on EA Sports (you can get there through the half-assed online dynasty website), and click on the media tab.
    4 - Download your photo, and post it to something like Photobucket where the image will have a URL.
    5 - Post it to the forum.

    The only thing keeping me from posting videos is that I'm trying REALLY hard to cut back on my shit AI meltdowns. I'm sparing everyone from my frame-by-frame cheating break downs.

    (#17, 2-0) WVU 24 - (#5, 0-1) Stanfurd 21

    MORGANTOWN - This week the West Virginia fans, and a fair amount of Cal fans, welcomed the Stanfurd Cardinal to Milan Puskar Stadium. Stanfurd would be coming in fresh off winning the Pac-10 and holding a #5 ranking, not to mention the top QB in the nation. Andrew Luck and the Cardinal would be quite a bit tougher than a turnover happy Maryland.

    The first quarter was mostly uneventful, but Stanfurd imposed their will on the Mountaineer defense right away. The Cardinal used spread formations to run the ball inside, causing serious problems for West Virginia. Stanfurd drove down the field, but an errant pass found CB Broderick Jenkins and could have easily been a Pick-6 if Jenkins hadn't been caught off guard by his catch. The two teams went back and forth, West Virginia being forced to punt and Andrew Luck getting picked off in the endzone after a long drive.



    Bad Luck in the endzone for Stanfurd.
    The second quarter was all West Virginia, and they needed it badly. After picking off the future #1 pick in the NFL draft twice and failing to score, the Mountaineers needed to get on the board. QB Geno Smith started off slowly, but managed to settle down and get the offense going. Smith finally warmed up the scoreboard with a 10 yard TD strike to WR JD Woods for a 7-0 lead. The Cardinal came right back, but Jenkins would be ready on this drive. Jenkins snagged his second INT of the game and ran it back 76 yards for a TAINT and a 14-0 lead. West Virginia managed to halt the Cardinal one more time and went into the half looking for an upset.



    Jenkins' TAINT puts the Cardinal down.
    If the second quarter belonged to West Virginia, the second half was all Stanfurd, mainly Andrew Luck. The Mountaineers got the ball first and used a 60 yard pass to WR Tavon Austin to get them into the redzone, but a few ill advised plays left them with a 35 yard FG. The Cardinal were down 17-0, but they came back like a freight train. Luck was breifly knocked out of the game, but that didn't seem to matter as back-up Alex Loukas hit WR Jamal Patterson for a 50 yard TD pass. After forcing a punt the Cardinal came right back down the field and a now healthy Andrew Luck spread the field and hit WR Drew Terrell for a 4 yard TD pass.

    What was once a 17-0 lead had shrunk to 17-14, and the Mountaineers looked to be back on their heels. The fans remained loud, and the Cal fans got even louder while waiving their "Fuck Stanfurd" shirts. With Stanfurd driving again things didn't look good, but Broderick Jenkins stepped up again and snagged his third INT of the game.Geno Smith took the field and piloted a killer drive to get WVU down to the 8 yard line, but a 4th and 2 was hanging over their heads. Coach Cal consulted with his assistants and kept the offense on the field, knowing a FG wouldn't be enough. HB Daquan Hargrett took the handoff and snaked his way into the endzone for a 24-14 lead. Andrew Luck came back out on the field and looked to one-up Smith, running a spread passing attack and eviscerating the Mountaineer secondary. Stanfurd got inside the 10, looking to score, and CB Keith Tandy looked to snag WVU's 5th INT of the game but dropped it in the endzone. Luck breathed a sigh of relief and two plays later handed the ball to HB Stephan Taylor for a 2 yard TD. With over 2 minutes left to play the Cardinal kicked the ball deep and made an excellent stop to leave West Virginia over 75 yards away from their endzone. Coach Cal leaned heavily on HBs Hargrett and Trey Johnson to eat up the clock, but they needed a great grab by Tavon Austin to convert a 3rd and 11. Stanfurd used its timeouts well, but a late 3rd down conversion in K Bitancurt's range gave West Virginia all the power. A few kneel downs later and WVU was celebrating a win over a Top 5 team.

    Andrew Luck walked off the field disappointed, but he nearly had a monster day. Luck went 23/33 for 378 yards, Loukas stole a 50 yard TD from him, but his 4 INT ruined his day. The Cardinal produced two 100 yard receivers, but the turnovers proved fatal. Geno Smith came in the lesser QB, but he had an efficient day by going 14/19 for 233 yards and a TD. The Mountaineers get a week off before a dangerous visit from LSU.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - A.Luck (Stan) 378 yards TD-4INT
    Rushing - D.Hargrett (WVU) 64 yards TD
    Receiving - T.Austin (WVU) 128 yards
    Defense - B.Jenkins (WVU) 5 tackles, TFL, 3INT, TAINT

    (#24 2-1) Rutgers 31 - (#23, 3-1) WVU 66

    NEWARK - After a disappointing home loss to LSU the Mountaineers hit the road to play Rutgers. This game marks the opening of the Big East conference schedule for West Virginia, and after falling down the ranks the National Title is probably out of reach.

    Rutgers opened this game with a bang, taking the opening kickoff and driving their offense down the field to open the scoring. Rutgers offense made the West Virginia defense look soft, and finally gashed them for a 28 yard run by HB Da Antwan Williams for a 7-0 lead. The home crowd was invigorated and ready to get behind their Scarlet Knights, unfortunately the Mountaineers had other plans. WVU came out and looked like the loss to LSU had awakened a beast, and completely blew Rutgers away. In just the first quarter Geno Smith hit Tavon Austin (74) and Stedman Bailey twice (5 & 65) to take a 21-7 lead, and then HB DaQuan Hargrett capped it off with a 1 yard run. The 28-7 on the score board quickly silenced the Newark crowd.

    The second quarter started off well, as Rutgers fought back but were held to a 43 yard FG. The Mountaineers came out and started where they left off in the first quarter, completely putting this game away. Geno Smith hit Hargrett for a 4 yard pass, his 4th of the game, and a bad decision gave WVU's DT Jorge Wright an INT. Smith found Bailey again on the very next play for a 13 yard TD pass and a 42-10 advantage. Rutgers did manage to battle back and QB Stephen Shimko threw his only TD pass of the day to De Antwan Williams from 4 yards out. Sadly for Rutgers the Mountaineers weren't done, and closed out the half with Smith's 6TD pass of the game, a 5 yarder to Hargrett. WVU walked out of the silent stadium up 49-17 at the half.



    Wright nearly takes this one back.
    The dejected Scarlet Knights came back out in the second half, but they must have left their defense in the locker room. After taking the kick off Hargrett took the first play from scrimmage 87 yards for a TD and a well deserved rest. The performance of WVU's second string offense was good, but worrying. Hargrett's back up, Trey Johnson, scored on a 1 yard run but fumbled the ball away on the very next drive. It might have gone unnoticed, but Rutgers scooped it up and ran it back 38 yards for a TD. Johnson struggled on the next drive, gaining 7 yards on 3 carries.

    With the game out of hand Rutgers kept going, scoring on a short run to make it 63-31. An INT in the endzone ended a chance to score one last time, and WVU ran down the field and set up a 33 yard FG for Tyler Bitancurt to end the misery.



    Smith was surgical, going 20/23
    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - G.Smith (WVU) 388 yards 6TD
    Rushing - D.Williams (RU) 179 yards 2TD
    Receiving - A.Bailey (WVU) 169 yards 3TD
    Defense - S.Beauharnais (RU) 12 tackles

    (3-2) Syracuse 10 - (#23, 4-1) WVU 58

    SYRACUSE - West Virginia stayed on the road this week, this time heading to New York to face Syracuse in the Carrier Dome. This game would be big for both teams as the winner would take home the Schwartzwalder Trophy and put their rival back in the Big East. Syracuse would need a big game if the Mountaineer offense takes off like last week.

    The Mountaineers were definitely prepared to hoist the Schwartzwalder Trophy, and they managed to put this game away in the first quarter. Syracuse's opening drive ended in an INT by CB Pat Miller, and then WVU completely dominated on both sides of the ball. The Mountaineers rolled for 28 unanswered points to start off the game, the last two were simply soul crushing for Syracuse. WVU's first two TDs were passes to Stedman Bailey and Daquan Hargrett, but their third TD came on a fumble recovered and run back by DE/OLB Najee Goode. Goode would not be done destroying the Orange, the next kickoff resulted in a fumble on the 7 yard line which was grabbed by Goode. Hargrett finished off the first quarter with an easy 7 yard run.

    Things got slightly worse, and then marginally better for the home team. WVU opened the second quarter with a 72 yard TD pass to Bailey for a stonking 35-0 lead. Syracuse's last two drives of the half were hopeful, finally breaking the shutout with an 11 yard TD pass, but they ended the half with a FG miss.



    Najee Goode was more than good against Syracuse.
    West Virginia got the ball back to start the second half with a bunch of fresh faces on offense. Daquan Hargrett stayed in the game for most of the quarter, HB Trey Johnson has been in Coach Cal's doghouse since playing so poorly against Rutgers. Hargrett didn't need to do much, scoring twice and wrapping up his day. Syracuse was impotent at best, getting stuffed on a 4th and 2 on the 28 pretty much ended the game for them. The only good thing for Syracuse was nailing a 49 yard FG, making it 49-10 going into the final quarter.

    Trey Johnson made his way into the game, but he didn't do much to please Coach Cal. WVU ate up the clock, but found themselves looking at 4th down inside the redzone a number of times. Tyler Bitancurt got in some work and hit three FGs (20, 21, and 24) to seal it at 58-10.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - G.Smith (WVU) 311 yards 3TD
    Rushing - D.Hargrett (WVU) 133 yards 3TD
    Receiving - A.Bailey (WVU) 167 yards 2TD
    Defense - N.Goode (WVU) 11 tackles, 2 TFL, SACK, 2 FMBREC, TD

    (#23, 5-1) WVU 48 - (1-6) Marshall 6

    MORGANTOWN - West Virginia headed home this week to play one of its biggest rivalry games; the Friends Of Coal Bowl against Marshall. The Thundering Herd have not been thundering much this season and bring a 1-5 record to Morgantown. WVU's Geno Smith has been hot lately and looks to help the Mountaineers send the Herd packing.

    Marshall started this game well, using a no-huddle spread offense to pressure WVU's defense, but in the end it didn't amount to much. Two TD passes to Tavon Austin (11 & 5 yards) put WVU ahead 14-0 after the first quarter.

    The second quarter wasn't very exciting, unless you were WVU's scoreboard operator. Marshall's no-huddle offense was more of a no-plan offense, and fell flat drive after drive. WVU scored on a Daquan Hargrett run, and Marshal answered back with a FG on their best drive of the game. The only drama occurred when Geno Smith was forced from the pocket and scampered 23 yards before getting dragged down just shy of the endzone. Smith would stay down and need to be helped off the field after suffering an ankle injury. Hargrett scored his second TD on the very next play for a 28-3 lead. Smith came back out on the next offensive drive, much to the relief of Mountaineer fans, and only lasted one play which was an 80 yard bomb to TE Tyler Urban. WVU went into the half with a comfortable 35-3 lead.

    The third quarter was fairly dull, and it was obvious Marshall was just trying to get out of town. Hargrett (back spasms) and Smith (ankle) came out in warm ups, so it was up to the Johnsons (QB Jeremy & HB Trey) to close this game out. Trey Johnson had a horrible game against Rutgers, so this would be his chance to get out of Coach Cal's doghouse. Marshall would manage a FG, but Johnson would break off a 34 yard run to erase any gains. Marshall had one more promising drive, but the ball found WVU's FS Eain Smith in the endzone to end the third.



    Smith ends Marshall's best drive.
    Trailing 42-6 the Thundering Herd packed it in with a wimper. WVU ran the ball to eat up most of the quarter, but Marshall managed to force a number of 4th and shorts around the redzone. The Mountaineers were comfortable sending out K Tyler Bitancurt on both occasions, hitting a 22 and 38 yard field goal to end Marshall's misery.

    The demolition of Marshall was impressive enough to garner WVU's first verbal commitment of the season and three soft verbals. The Moutaineers were able to snag the nation's 9th ranked C; Patrick Davis out of Elkins, WV.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - G.Smith (WVU) 359 yards 3TD
    Rushing - T.Johnson (WVU) 167 yards TD
    Receiving - T.Urban (WVU) 151 yards TD
    Defense - O.Brown (MU) 11 tackles, TFL

    (#21, 6-1) WVU 56 - (3-4) Louisville 7

    MORGANTOWN - West Virginia would have its second rivalry game in a row at home this week, and the Louisville Cardinals would put up more of a fight than Marshall. Louisville started a mini-brawl when they gathered at midfield and stomped on the WVU logo, the teams had to be separated and forced a few players were ejected.

    Louisville came out kicking a punching,well more accurately holding and pushing. The Cardinals followed up their logo stomping with an uncalled penalty riddled 15 play 81 yard drive that took up half of the first quarter. Coach Cal had to be restrained after a number of suspicious plays were not flagged, all giving Louisville first downs on multiple 3rd and longs. Louisville finally used an illegal downfield block to release a WR for a 21 yard TD. Coach Cal had to be held back by his assistants, but his words fell on deaf ears, deaf and blind ears. The Cardinals were barely able to celebrate their 7-0 when Geno Smith used a 33 second drive to find TE Tyler Urban in the endzone.



    This is EA's idea of man coverage.
    Louisville started off the 2nd quarter with more dirty play, this time on the defensive side of the ball. S Shenard Holton came up, blocked off TE Urban with the ball in the air and then jumped up to snag it. Pass interference was not called, much to the dismay of Coach Cal. Luckily the Cardinals weren't able to do anything with the ball and WVU came back to score on a pass to WR Ivan McCartney. Louisville's next drive was basically the end of the game for them, after two sacks left them staring at a 4th and 19. They had to punt out of their own endzone, giving The Moutaineers excellent field position. The very next play was a 38 TD pass to Tavon Austin who would catch another on their next drive.

    WVU came out of the half up 28-7 and looking to make Louisville sorry for stomping on midfield. The Moutaineers kept to the ground, scoring on a 1 yard Hargrett run, but an ill fated pass on 3rd and 8 left Coach Cal with a broken headset. WR Stedman Bailey cut across the middle, was dragged down from behind by CB Frank Perry who then turned to snag the ball. Unfortunately for Louisville this turned into a disaster, two brutal sacks left them staring at 4th and 25. They weren't done there, as a stupid fake punt attempt gave WVU the ball back inside the redzone and led to an easy 1 yard TD run by Hargrett.

    WVU closed out the game by putting pressure on QB Domonique Brown and closing out the scoring with a Hargrett TD and then a Trey Johnson 25 yarder. Louisville left the field with their heads hanging, losing this rivalry 56-7 after stomping on midfield left them looking foolish. Smith did give up two INT, but he had a huge day on offense. Smith spread the ball around and the offense had three 100+ yard receivers in Bailey (186), Austin (138), and Urban (118).

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - G.Smith (WVU) 475 yards 4TD-2INT
    Rushing - T.Johnson (WVU) 59 yards TD
    Receiving - S.Bailey (WVU) 186 yards TD

    (#19, 7-1) WVU 62 - (3-5) Connecticut 3

    MORGANTOWN - The Mountaineers welcome the UConn Huskies this week, and were quite keen on staying atop the Big East.

    This game was essentially over with WVU's first posession, but that didn't stop the Mountaineers from establishing themselves as the Big East elite. Geno Smith continued his amazing season and found WR Tavon Austin to take a 7-0 lead, and after UConn fumbled the ball on their next drive he found Hargrett to make it 14-0. UConn just couldn't catch a break in the first quarter as CB Keith Tandy snagged an INT and put WVU inside Husky territory again. UConn called an ill advised all out blitz and Smith hit Austin again for a 36 yard TD. A UConn punt went into the endzone for a touchback, and Smith found Austin a third time for an 80 yard TD pass and a 28-0 lead as the first quarter wrapped up.

    The second quarter would be quite different, mainly UConn would be able to slow down Geno Smith. Smith went a whopping 11/11 before throwing an incompletion in the second. Then UConn, with some help from the officials, ruined his day. A tipped pass flew into a crowd of players, but before WVU's Stedman Bailey had a chance to go for the ball a defender ran over and laid him out, making it easy for the Huskies to grab the ball.* After a violent protest by Coach Cal, the officials failed to see anything wrong. UConn couldn't do anything with the ball and WVU came back to score on a 61 yard pass to Stedman Bailey. UConn wasn't done, and it went back to cheating in order to stop the Mountaineers. The Huskies ended the half with a tipped pass-pass interference-INT combo just like earlier, and it wasn't called. Coach Cal lost it, luckily it was halftime and he was able to walk into the tunnel with the team, but due to his violent expletive heavy protest he would not be coming back out.



    Austin's big day powered the Mountaineer win
    The third quarter was basically UConn's last chance at putting something on the scoreboard. They really could not catch a break once again. WVU went to running the ball every down, but when they were facing a 3rd and 9 from the 18 a short pass turned into a TD. UConn's very next drive started with a TAINT, and suddenly they were down 49-0. They finally put together a decent drive, but in the end had to kick a mid range FG.

    The fourth quarter was horribly boring, marked by the defeated UConn players just trying to get off the field. Tyler Bitancurt hit a 41 yard FG, and then HB Daquan Hargrett crushed the Huskies with a 73 yard TD run. Bitancurt added one more FG and ended the misery 62-3.

    After looking porous to start the season the WVU defense has been amazing lately. They continue to allow yards, but in the past three games have held opponents to 3FG and only one TD. Their offense has also been hot, so if they can keep this up they may be looking at a BCS bowl game in January.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - G.Smith (WVU) 470 yards 6TD-3INT
    Rushing - D.Hargrett (WVU) 155 yards TD
    Receiving - T.Austin (WVU) 215 yards 3TD
    Defense - J.Miller (WVU) 8 tackles, 3TFL, SACK

    * I'm not making this up. Apparently EA thinks defenders can just lay out receivers when they are going for the ball, I knew they didn't work pass interference into this game. Just another reason this game is shit, and it happened TWICE!

    (#17, 8-1) WVU 49 - (#21, 6-3) Pitt 21

    MORGANTOWN - West Virginia stayed at home this week to host the Backyard Brawl with hated rival Pitt. This would be Coach Cal's third game against Pitt in two seasons, both of them wins, so the Panthers would be more riled up than usual. The winner of this game would take control of the Big East, and a WVU loss would leave both teams 7-2 and well out of the BCS Title picture.

    This Backyard Brawl started out more like a backyard pillow fight, but Pitt managed to come back and make a go of it. WVU opened the scoring after shutting down Pitt with a 67 yard bomb to WR Stedman Bailey. After stuffing Pitt again Bailey nearly made it 14-0, but he dropped an easy ball on a Panther all-out blitz that was a guaranteed TD. The Mountaineers ground out the rest of the drive and Geno Smith found WR Tavon Austin on a short drag route that turned into a 23 yard TD.

    Pitt opened the second quarter down 14-0, but they had fancy plans and pants to match. Pitt finally put together a long drive by exploiting Coach Cal's biggest weakness; run defense. HB Dion Lewis and Ray Graham hammered the Mountaineers and got them down to the 10 yard line. Graham took a handoff, ran directly over two defensive lineman and a linebacker, then simply pushed away a safety and walked into the endzone like nothing happened. After cutting WVU's lead in half things started going Pitt's way, and the officials were more than willing to help them. On WVU's next drive Geno Smith "fumbled" the ball after being sacked, and it was ruled a turnover. Coach Cal gave the refs an earful before being forced to throw a red flag, of course the ball came out well after Smith hit the ground and the call was overturned. The very next play Bailey redeemed himself for the drop earlier and snagged a 44 yard TD pass for a 21-7 lead. The Mountaineers managed another stop and followed it up with a clock eating drive that ended with a Daquan Hargrett 1 yard TD run, a 28-7 lead, and a safe trip into the locker room. WVU kicked off the ball with 35 second left on the clock, little did they know that the officiating crew had another trick up their sleeve. Pitt's first and only play of the drive was a jaw dropping 85 yard run by Dion Lewis that left Coach Cal raging. Lewis ran straight up the middle, vanished under a pile of Mountaineers, and after some tussling somehow broke loose from four players and outran everyone. Lewis was clearly down at one point, but the officials failed to blow the whistle and let the TD stand.*



    Dion Lewis does an amazing impression of Superman
    Pitt had managed a spirited comeback in the first half, but they missed the mark in the second. Smith opened the half with another scoring drive, this time finding Austin, to take a solid 35-14 lead. Pitt went to their powerful running game, but that was all they could do. They would run all over WVU, but a few 3rd and longs left them hopeless. They did manage to score once more on a Dion Lewis run, but their one dimensional approach made things easy for WVU.

    The fourth quarter was extremely frustrating for Pitt fans as they watched their team run the ball again and again down 35-21. WVU took the same approach, but their lead only got bigger with Hargrett's second TD of the game. Pitt continued to make Lewis look like superman, giving him the ball 26 times, but an ill fated pass by Tino Sunseri to Lewis found CB Broderick Jenkins for a brutal TAINT with less than a minute to play. The Moutaineers sent Pitt packing with a 49-21 whuppin'.

    Dion Lewis had an insane day and seemed to be invincible. He shrugged off tackles and pushed players aside all game, and when the ball was thrown to him defenders could never make the first tackle. Lewis' massive day overshadowed Hargrett's 123 yard 2TD performance.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - G.Smith (WVU) 348 yards 4TD-INT
    Rushing - D.Lewis (Pitt) 236 yards 2TD
    Receiving - A.Bailey (WVU) 207 yards 2TD
    Defense - B.Jenkins (WVU) 5 tackles, TFL, TAINT

    * I'm making up the fact that he was clearly down, the rest is 100% true. He literally carried four defenders before all of them just fell off of him, then somehow he outran my fast DB's who were standing around with their thumbs up their asses.

    (6-4) USF 7 - (#16, 9-1) WVU 51

    TAMPA - West Virginia left the friendly confines of Morgantown this week to take on Big East upstart USF. A good showing in this game would be important for Coach Cal, recruiting has been slow and south Florida is an important recruiting ground.

    USF came into this game determined to shut down WVU's standout WR's Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey, unfortunately they forgot about TE Tyler Urban. Urban has been quiet the past few games, but he would make the Bulls pay. The Mountaineers opened up the scoring with two TD passes to Urban, both coming after futile 3-and-out drives by USF. USF managed to turn things around on WVU's third drive, with a little help from the officials. Geno Smith tried to force a pass into Austin in the endzone, but found a USF defender instead who took it out to the 4. The very next play left Coach Cal raging, as Demitris Murray took the ball right up the middle, ran over a few defenders, vanished under a pile of three Mountaineers, popped up and slowly ran 96 yards for a TD.* WVU got over it, and Smith found WR Coley White to make the game 21-7.

    The second quarter was very exciting, but only featured one score. Smith found White again to make it 28-7, and then everything got out of hand. USF put together a crazy drive where they could do no wrong on 3rd and long, but missed a FG when it hit the post. WVU drove down the field again, but a gust of "wind" changed their fortunes. Urban cut to the inside, but Smith threw the ball to the right, directly into the hands of a USF defender for an INT.** USF marched down the field, but found themselves in 4th and 1 down 28-7. They went for it and WVU's once porous defense stoned them to end the half.



    Urban feasted on USF's secondary.
    WVU entered the second half minus Tavon Austin, who apparently suffered a broken toe It wouldn't matter as things would be all Mountaineer. Smith found Hargett and Urban for a 42-7 lead and a seat on the bench. USF was lost, and had no answers on offense.

    The Bulls played most for the fourth on their heels, but they did manage to stiffen up against the run. Hargrett and Johnson combined to run this one out, but on three straight drives WVU was looking at 4th and 5 or more. Luckily for them they were within range for Bitancurt to tack a few points on the board and end this farce 51-9.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - G.Smith (WVU) 435 yards 6TD 2INT
    Rushing - D.Murray (USF) 112 yards TD
    Receiving - T.Urban (WVU) 246 yards 3TD
    Defense - J.Jenkins (USF) 13 tackles, INT

    * More horse shit courtesy of EA. He had three defenders on him, did a spin move, and everyone fell off like he was covered in grease. Why is it that when we juke out of a tackle its almost always a fumble, but when the CPU does it everyone falls to the ground?
    ** By "wind" I mean bullshit. It would be one thing if EA was smart enough to work in timing routes, but when a receiver cuts one way and a throw AFTER the cut goes the opposite way to a defender just standing there... its just plain old shit.

    (#21, 9-3) Cincy 7 - (#16, 10-1) WVU 53

    CINCINNATI - West Virginia was on the road this week in a game that would decide the Big East against Cincinnati. The Bearcats have looked good this season, but they come up against one of the nation's top offenses and a defense that has held opponents to 10 points or less in five of their last six games.

    Cincy may have been amped up for this game, but they came out flat and lifeless to start the game. Their first posession started on the 15 and they failed to pass the 20. WVU came down on their first drive and scored on a pass to WR Coley White. Cincy failed to get past the 20 again, but their defense stiffened up and halted WVU to force a FG and a 10-0 lead. The Bearcats just couldn't get going and failed to cross the 20 again, giving WVU great field position which ended in a 5 yard pass to WR Stedman Bailey. Bailey would prove a massive headache for Cincy's defense.

    Cincy finally managed to get across the 20 in the second quarter, but a punt left WVU on their own 16. Bailey quickly silenced the crowd as WVU's first play found him for an 84 yard TD and a 24-0 lead.* Cincy just couldn't catch a break and their next drive ended with an INT by Eain Smith. Bailey stuck it to Cincy again with a 56 yard bomb that put them down 31-0. Cincy's secondary was non-existent in this game, it was almost like Geno Smith was being defended by a stiff breeze. Smith kept of the trend and hit WR Ivan McCartney for an 80 yard TD after a Cincy punt went into the endzone. Down 38-0, the Bearcats finally managed to put a drive together, and QB Zach Collaros found WR DJ Woods for a 35 yard TD pass.** WVU got the ball back, but couldn't get far enough as the clock ran down, kicking a 35 yard FG to end the half and go into the tunnel up 41-7.



    Bailey breaks away and scores one of his three TD's.
    The second half was incredibly boring, especially if you love seeing guys in the endzone, but it was a disaster for WVU. The Mountaineers first drive ended in a FG, the Bearcats were able to make WVU's running game work hard for every yard. WVU's next drive spelled disaster as HB Daquan Hargrett limped off the field with a broken foot, ending his season. Trey Johnson took his place, and proceeded to make Mountaineer fans pine for Hargrett as he fumbled the ball away. A few plays late Collaros found CB Pat Miller for a heart breaking INT.



    Bailey's huge day powers the Mountaineers title clincher.
    The fourth quarter was all Tyler Bitancurt's, and he opened the scoring with a 34 yard FG after WVU's running game fell flat. Another INT ended a Cincy drive, followed by another FG. The nightmare finally ended when Bitancurt hit his 6th FG of the game for a 53-7 victory, and the Big East title.


    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - G.Smith (WVU) 460 yards 5TD
    Rushing - D.Hargrett (WVU) 84 yards
    Receiving - S.Bailey (WVU) 258 yards 3TD
    Defense - N.Goode (WVU) 7 tackles, 2TFL, Sack

    * This drives me insane, check out the video. I'll explain in the next footnote.
    ** So this game is just fucking shit. Player ratings mean nothing, and the CPU plays with a completely different set of rules. Lets put aside the times when my CB's LITERALLY spun around in a circle and let their man run down field, I just flat out don't understand how EA figured out pass coverage. Ok, so here is my problem, in the video Bailey (93SP-94ACC) is in man coverage by LB #37 (87SP-87ACC) which is obviously a massive advantage. Look at how the LB practically gains on Bailey, stays with him for 30 FUCKING YARDS before Bailey starts to gain a bit, finally gaining about 2 yards over 70+ yards of running. So my gripe comes on Cincy's TD, when ratings prove to be irrelevant again. WR Woods (96SP-91ACC) is running a deep route in man-to-man coverage with CB Tandy (92SP-95ACC), Tandy turns to run with Woods and they are both in full sprint at the 15, photo below. Trust me, I was going to do an image every 5 yards...


    Neck and neck, at full sprint, at the 15.
    So in the next 5 yards Woods blasts past Tandy and gains at least 3 yards to get open in the endzone. How does that make any fucking sense, that a WR 4 points fast with lower ACC gains three yards over 15 yards, but a WR that is 6 points faster with a massive ACC advantage doesn't gain anything over 30 yards and only 2 in the next 45?! Bunch of fucking idiots at EA, this shit stays the same every year. All I want is a level playing ground, INTs are another great example. Collaros made 5 or 6 stupid throws that were easy EASY INTs, but my players basically stood there and let the ball hit them in the face. Also, on one play I threw a deep ball about 20 yards down field, and the INSTANT the ball was thrown a defender in man coverage on a guy running a drag route underneath broke off his coverage to run down field and make the tackle just as my WR caught the ball. My guys don't even react to the ball when its thrown right at them, looking at the QB.

    (#20, 9-3) TCU 23 - (#15, 11-1) WVU 24

    FORT WORTH - With the Big East under their belt the West Virginia Mountaineers headed south to Texas for a showdown with TCU. WVU comes into this game with little to play for having won their conference and sitting at #15, a win would be for pride alone.

    TCU started off with the ball and drive down the field looking to score, but WVU stiffened up inside the 10 and halted their scoring drive. TCU would have to settle for a FG, the only scoring of the first quarter. Both teams played tough defense and forced long time consuming drives.

    WVU got their game together in the second quarter and took control of the game. Using mostly their ground game and some timely passes WVU scored two TD, both rushes by HB Trey Johnson. TCU made a push at the end of the half, but opted to go for the endzone on 4th down with the clock running down. WVU came up big again and halted TCU to take a 14-3 lead into halftime.



    Trey Johnson would come up big for WVU
    The Mountaineers had managed to score before the break, and with the ball back they wanted to score again and put this game away. Geno Smith had his worst game of the season, and managed to find a TCU defender instead of TE Tyler Urban. The Horned Frogs didn't waste the turnover and Casey Pachall found TE Logan Brock to cut the lead to 14-10. Both teams traded TD runs and finished the third quarter 21-17.

    The fourth quarter proved exciting, and TCU would be upset for passing on that FG before the half. A long WVU drive was halted by a speedy TCU defense, and K Tyler Bitancurt made it 22-22 on the season with a 34 yard FG and a 24-17 lead. TCU went to their spread attack and managed to tear apart the Mountaineer secondary and get back inside the 10. They let the clock run down, and HB Matthew Tucker passed 100 yards rushing with his second TD of the game. The Horned Frogs stayed aggressive and sent out the offense to win the game with a 2-PT attempt, but WVU was up to the challenge and stoned Tucker to keep the lead 24-23. WVU ran the ball three times and used a booming punt by Bitancurt to run out the clock and escape Texas with a win.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - C.Pachall (TCU) 180 yards TD-INT
    Rushing - M.Tucker (TCU) 102 yards 2TD
    Receiving - S.Bailey (WVU) 258 yards 3TD
    Defense - N.Goode (WVU) 7 tackles, 2TFL, Sack

    (#12, 12-1) WVU 52 - (#6 10-3) UNC 10

    NEW ORLEANS - The Mountaineers headed down south today for a showdown with North Carolina in the Sugar Bowl. This would be Coach Cal's first BCS game, and the pressure would be intense. After a long season WVU got its chance to prove it belongs in the Top 10, but UNC's Heisman winner would be in their way. HB Giovani Bernard looks to power UNC's offense, and WVU has had trouble halting powerful HBs all season.

    UNC's opening drive was shut down by an amped WVU defense, and Geno Smith continued his great season by leading WVU to a 7-0 lead on a short pass to WR Tavon Austin. WVU's Tyler Bitancurt pinned the Tarheels deep with the kickoff, but UNC had a trick up their sleeve. The first play from scrimmage was a simple dive up the middle to Bernard, who proceeded to run directly over two defenders and take the ball 84 yards for a TD. UNC's players were exstatic, but their joy would be short lived. WVU's next drive ended with a 63 yard TD pass to Ivan McCartney, quieting the UNC fans. WVU halted their next drive and UNC's punt stopped dead on the 2 yard line. The Mountaineers seemed invincible, especially in the first quarter, despite UNC's tough defense the Mountaineers marched 98 yards for a TD and a 21-7 lead.

    UNC's first drive of the second quarter fell flat, but their punt stopped dead on the 1 to really stick WVU in a hole. Much like the previous drive, WVU calmly went the length of the field before Geno Smith hit HB Trey Johnson for a short TD pass. UNC used a long time consuming drive to bring the ball down field, but a brutal sack left them just across WVU's 40. A 53 yard field goal sailed through to put them down 28-10. WVU used a hurry up offense to get down the field, but with 11 seconds found themselves with 33 yards to go so a Bitancurt FG closed the half 31-10.




    Trey Johnson shows up the Heisman winner.
    With a firm lead Geno Smith headed for the bench, going 20/24 in the first half, and Coach Cal turned the game over to his HBs. Trey Johnson, just elected to the freshman All-American team, showed that he deserved it. Johnson had been behind Bernard's rushing total for most of the game, but the second half would belong to him. Johnson scored the only TD of the third quarter on a 7 yard run, and WVU went into the fourth up 38-10.

    The Mountaineers came up big, crowding the box and keeping Bernard from killing them. Aside from Bernard's 84 yard run the Heisman winner was mostly contained. Johnson surpassed 200 rushing yards and nabbed his second TD of the game to put WVU up 45-10. UNC's passing game did little, and WVU used their next possession to eat up the clock and punch it in one more time with Shawne Alston to win the game 51-10.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - G.Smith (WVU) 352 yards 4TD
    Rushing - T.Johnson (WVU) 216 yards 2TD
    Receiving - I.McCartney (WVU) 271 yards TD
    Defense - Z.Brown (UNC) 15 tackles, TFL

    2012 SEASON PREVIEW

    After a good first season in Morgantown Coach Cal will have trouble matching his 12-1 record. The Mountaineers easily captured the Big East, so most expect them to win it again. They have a touch non-conference schedule on the horizon, so few expect the Mountaineers to contend for the National Title. Aside from the schedule, a number of changes on offense put WVU in a difficult position.

    2011 Record : 12-1
    Conference Record : 7-0 (1st)

    Spring Questions

    1 - TE Depth : The departure of senior TE Tyler Urban has left a massive void at TE. Urban had been a great safety valve for Geno Smith last year, and without him the offense may struggle at time. Taking Urban's place will be SO Lance Jones and FR Curtis Davis, who probably won't match Urban's production combined. Look for WVU to use HBs out of the backfield more.

    2 - DT Depth : With DE Julian Miller and DT Scooter Berry leaving for the NFL draft the Mountaineers have problems on the D-Line. Coach Cal recruited four DT, but they are all freshman and lack the ideal size to anchor the 4-3 and Nickel defenses. Luckily WVU has alot of talented DE's who will try to fill in at DT, and WVU may play a type of 4-3 to mask the problem. WVU should struggle to stop the ground game again.

    Fall Answers


    1 - Smith's Replacement : Geno Smith used his stellar 2011 season to enter the NFL draft early. Coach Cal was publicly disappointed, but he has two good young QB's to take his place. WVU has released a statement following fall practice that redshirt SO Barry Brunetti will be the starter. Brunetti beat out SO Jeremy Johnson by displaying significantly stronger passing skills. The youth at QB will no doubt force WVU to run the ball more, a skill Johnson exceeds at, but after Coach Cal talked HB Daquan Hargrett out of leaving early they won't rely on the QB for rushing yards. The return of standout WR Tavon Austin, able back-up HB Trey Johnson, and a deep WR corp will give Brunetti plenty of chances to succeed. If Brunetti turns the ball over too much Johnson, who took snaps last year, will likely be inserted very quickly.

    2 - Experienced OL : WVU looks set on the OL, a good sign with three good HB and a young QB. The line features three SR and a JR, not to mention stanout SO LT Quinton Spain. The Mountaineers should run more, and with a deep experienced OL they will be more dangerous on the ground.

    Recruiting

    Coach Cal didn't start off recruiting very well, but a late push helped sending his class into the Top 10. He only snagged one player that figures to start immediately, FS Brandon Cooper, but he filled a need at DT. Cal's highest rated player was five star ATH Derek Lindsey, but initial reports are that Lindsey's position on the team is undetermined. Look for WVU to improve its recruiting in 2012.

    (0-1) Marshall 0 - (#10, 1-0) WVU 80

    HUNTINGTON - The West Virginia Mountaineers opened up their season with a heated rivalry; The Friends Of Coal game at Marshall. The rivalry has been fairly one-sided for a while, but that doesn't stop the fans from getting excited. The Thundering Herd would have home field advantage and a first year starter under center for WVU, you never know in a rivalry.

    WVU kicked off first, and that was probably the last time the Marshall fans were excited in this one. After two incomplete passes Marshall's QB, Eddie Sullivan, finally connected. Sadly it was with WVU's Pat Miller, and The Mountaineers would have only 25 yards to the endzone. The Barry Brunetti era did not start well, after hitting WR Tavon Austin for a first down on the 12 Brunetti looked like a first time starter. Brunetti would be called for intentional grounding, then throw two incomplete passes that sailed over WRs.* Tyler Bitancurt made his way out and opened the scoring with an easy 32 yard FG and a 3-0 lead. Marshall held WVU to a FG, but that was basically the highlight of the game for them. The next drive ended in another INT, this time Brunetti looked very good. Brunetti found HB Daquan Hargrett for a short pass the put WVU up 10-0. WVU's next drive started on Marshall's 36 thanks to a fumble, and it only lasted a single play as Austin snagged a 36 yard TD pass. The first quarter ended with a ray of hope as WVU's Austin watched a pass go by and get picked off by a Marshall safety. Austin got an earful from Coach Cal on the sidelines.

    Pardon my French, but the second quarter was a fucking nightmare for Marshall. A long WVU drive ended in a short TD run by Brunetti, and the next drive ended in a bizarre TD pass to Hargrett that deflected off two defenders for a 31-0 lead. WVU's Miller ended another Marshal drive with a pick, and Tavon Austin followed it up with another 30 yard TD catch. After halting Marshall again, WVU promptly scored again on a short pass to Hargrett, his third. Marshall got the ball back pinned inside their 15, and a few plays later Sullivan was sacked and fumbled the ball. DT Jorge Wright scooped up the ball and ran it in, ending the first half with a 52-0 lead.



    Brunetti shines in his debut.
    As if being blow away wasn't bad enough, Marshall had to kick off to WVU to start the second half. It was no secret that WVU would be interested in running out the clock, but they failed to account for Brunetti. Brunetti had scrambled for a few first downs in the first half, but on 2nd and inches he ran a load option around the corner and went 60 yards for a TD. The next drive Brunetti hit the bench and handed the game over to Jeremy Johnson. Johnson piloted the team down the field before Hargrett ran it in from 12 yards out for his fourth TD of the game. Marshall responded with their best drive of the game, with the home crowd dead silent, but managed to knock a FG against the upright to stay down 66-0.

    The fourth quarter basically consisted of WVU's Hargrett and Shawne Alston running over Marshall players. Alston ran one in, and Hargrett snuck in again after a Marshall fumble gave WVU the ball on the 1. With the game all wrapped up the Thundering Herd made one last charge. The used a series of passes and questionable calls to go down the field and get inside WVU's 20. With time running down Marshall managed to get to the 3, but a goal line stand by WVU stoned them as time expired to preserve an 80-0 shut out.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - B.Brunetti (WVU) 368 yards 5TD-INT
    Rushing - D.Hargrett (WVU) 183 yards 2TD
    Receiving - T.Austin (WVU) 237 yards 2TD
    Defense - J.Wright (WVU) 5 tackles, TFL, FMBREC, TD

    *This was the most epic 'WR Doesn't Even Try' game I've ever played. Over the course of the game Tavon Austin literally watched at least 5 passes pass right by him.

    Did Marshall's coaches talk about your mama or something or were you thinking you were playing their basketball team and trying to outscore them? Just joking with you. Brunetti looks tough... I think I play you at the end of the season (a little worried here).

    They just couldn't get out of their own way. I think they didn't pass their own 30 for most of the game and I had less than 35 to go on like four drives. Also, they suck.

    TALLAHASSEE - After a bye week the Mountaineers stayed on the road, heading to Florida to face off against ACC power Florida State. WVU is fresh off a monumental beating of in-state rival Marshall, but nobody expected the Mountaineers to hang 80 on the Seminoles.*

    EA can suck my balls. WVU forced a Florida State fumble on their first drive, and proceeded to score on a DaQuan Hargett run. FSU came back on 4th and 2 for a suspicious TD run that went 42 yards for a TD.

    The second quarter ended Coach Cal's day. After a long drive full of holding, pass interferences, and bizarre CB behavior the Seminoles settled for a 51 yard FG that would have been good from 60. After challenging a punt that went out of bounds, and the call was reversed, Coach Cal went off of the officials. He was so violent and agressive that his own players had to push him into the locker room. FSU took advantage of WVU's secondary running off in random directions to score again, shocking the Mountaineers 17-14. Tavon Austin finally got his head out of his ass after dropping two wide open guaranteed TD passes to catch one for 55 yards. WVU went into the half up 21-17.



    Despite playing like shit, Austin carried the passing game.
    Florida State kept on cheating in the second half, holding the defensive line on almost every play. WVU finally managed to force a punt, and managed to overcome their OL blocking nobody to get down to FSU's 7. Hargrett snuck in again to make it 28-17.

    FSU took advantage of the secondary again, throwing pass after pass into their gator hands, and magically finding someone wide open on 3rd & 10 again and again. WVU couldn't tackle shit, they were actually better at taking eachother out in pass coverage. It was like they were blind. FSU scored again, with WVU's defense standing around allowing themselves to get blocked. They then went for 2 and WVU could only watch as their diminutive HB shrugged them off liek children. FSU tried an onside kick, but it was recovered by WVU. Barry Brunetti continued to show great poise and marched the team down field, finding Austin for a 35-25 lead. WVU finally put together a decent defensive stand, and ended the game.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - B.Brunetti (WVU) 350 yards 3TD
    Rushing - C.Thompson (FSU) 90 yards TD
    Receiving - T.Austin (WVU) 178 yards 2TD
    Defense - B.Busick (WVU) 7 tackles, 2TFL

    * I'm sorry, I really am, but this game is fucking shit. EA has created one of the glitchiest, shittiest, and most one-sided games I have ever seen. This entire game was a joke, I honestly think the brain trust at EA has never watched a real game in their lives. This game was loaded with blatant cheating and shit AI, I was aghast on every fucking drive.

    WR Tavon Austin is a 97 overall, with a catch rating of 84. He dropped three easy passes that were guaranteed TDs. THREE, with nobody within 10 yards of him. Coincidence? No, fuck you EA.

    I started to keep count after the third bullshit non-INT. Ten. Ten fucking passes, that were stupid, went right to a CB who was looking at the ball and even put his hands up to catch it, that would have been an INT if I threw them 100% of the time. None of them were caught.

    The only way this game can get into the endzone is by cheating. On 4th and 2 from the 42 they go for it. Their little HB breaks three tackles in a row, not by using a stiff arm or juking, my guys just grab him and immediately fall to the ground. It also helps when the rest of your team is standing still letting the offense hold, or running into blockers instead of after the ball carrier... still confused why EA put that one in. Their second TD came off a post route where my CB turned around as soon as the ball was snapped and ran off in a random direction while his man (in an coverage) just went into the endzone for an easy TD. This went on all game. I think EA has NO FUCKING CLUE what MAN coverage means.

    I booted a punt out of bounds, the player caught the ball standing out of bounds. The punt was downed at the spot, but the CPU then proceeded to FUCKING REVIEW IT. It then reversed the call, meaning nothing. I played a game in another OD, a shit WR from Wyoming caught a pass in the corner of the endzone out of bounds. He was standing out of bounds, he never touched the ball while inbounds. Both feet were out of bounds. The pass was called incomplete. The CPU challenged the play and FUCKING REVERSED IT for a TD. It is now painfully obvious to me that EA doesn't understand how the sidelines work, they actually fucked up the sidelines. How basic is that?

    (#7, 3-0) WVU 55 - (3-1) Syracuse 21

    MORGANTOWN - After a rough road game the Mountaineers headed home to face rival Syracuse. The Mountaineers won the Schwartzwalder Trophy last year, and look to keep their hand on it.

    Syracuse opened the game with a suspicious drive, but fumbled the ball away on the 20. QB Barry Brunetti engineered a drive that ended with a 16 yard TD pass to WR Tavon Austin and a 7-0 lead. The next drive Brunetti found Austin again for 11 after he struggled to, well, try to catch balls. Austin returned to Coach Cal's doghouse after watching a guaranteed TD sail right by him. Syracuse came back with another suspicious drive that ended with Coach Cal's second ejection of the season. Syracuse's WR pushed the defender in the back, sending him falling out of bounds as the ball approached, and caught the ball for a TD. The very next drive Austin redeemed himself with a 66 yard bomb to put WVU up 21-7 after the first.

    The second quarter was mostly a disaster for Syracuse, even with their blatant cheating and WVU's secondary running in random directions, the Mountaineers poured it on. Hargrett snuck out for a 92 yard run before Syracuse could get their second TD of the game. Brunetti came right back with a 28 yarder to DJ Woods and a 54 yarder to Ivan McCartney before the half.



    Austin just watches it, suck my balls EA.
    The second half was so boring the fans nearly passed out. WVU tried to give the game away by blocking nobody, letting defenders run by and running upfield without blocking the defensive line, but K Tyler Bitancurt saved them. Bitancurt was robbed of a 48 yard FG in the first half, but he made up for it by hitting 48 and 50 yard FGs and a 48-14 lead.

    Syracuse's offense basically turned into hucking it down field and praying that one of WVU's secondary would run 10 yards away from their man in the opposite direction they were running. For the most part it didn't work, but it was suspiciously effective on 3rd down, and normally solid CB Pat Miller opted to let his WR run 10 yards away and give up a 42 yard TD pass. WVU ran the clock down and Hargrett ran it in from 10 for his second and final TD of the game. A 55-21 win would help retain the trophy.

    GAME LEADERS
    Passing - B.Brunetti (WVU) 406 yards 5TD
    Rushing - D.Hargrett (WVU) 215 yards 2TD
    Receiving - T.Austin (WVU) 164 yards 3TD
    Defense - B.Hawkes (SU) 8 tackles, 2TFL
