    Ya raise concerns about ANYTHING about Stu and they want to revoke your fandom. Anytime anything big is breaking I'll check in on it but otherwise I hardly go there. If youre not "a win is a win regardless how bad we look" fan dont bother going to the scout board.

    Its not just about one game for me. We have seen replays of the game too many times against inferior teams for me to stomach this coaching staff any longer. The defense at least USUALLY holds up its end of the bargain and is why we havent lost near as many games as we arguably should have.

    Which brings me back to my original question:

    Is there any good WVU message boards?

    Good seasonal thread with about 4 WVU fans posting in it (you, HB, tixe, and Slyder). Thats about it though.

    Reds Zone often has better threads about football, soccer, hockey, etc. than boards dedicated to those sports. I can't stand WVU but I enjoy discussing the Eers with the folks here. Homer et al are fun and rational, even when they tick me off.

    Re: 2010 WVU Football

    I'm yet to find a good WVU board, which is actually a pretty good microchasm into the WVU fanbasee as a whole. Then again, I compare that board to this one, which is about as broad of a spectrum as one can imagine.

    I'm actually randomly headed to Morgantown for the Maryland game this weekend, and Baton Rouge next weekend for the LSU game. Wouldn't be surprised if WVU dropped both of them. I like the under again for this Maryland game.

    Call me a homer or dumb but I feel that we'll beat Maryland and of course lose to LSU. Call it a hunch, 31-17.

    Next weekend vs. LSU 38-20

    I enjoy posting about WVU here more than anywhere even though there are just a handful of fans. 1. If we really tick each other of we are all still Reds fans, and the Reds are #1 on my totem poll of favorite teams, so sorry WVU but the Reds trump you.

    B. If you try going to a WVU board and bash ole' coach Barney Fife you get crucified...Stewart knows what he's doing, he is a good man, he is better than Rich Rod, blah-blah-blah!!!

    I feel the same way. I'm Marshall born and bred and have a graduate degree from Xavier. I love both of my schools but the Reds dominate my sports world. In the end, my love of the Reds trumps that for all other sports teams.

    To a lesser extent, I see your point, but something to keep in mind:

    If you are posting on a website like Scout.com or Rivals, recruits tend to read those websites. They want to portray the image that they support the coach because otherwise, the program would suffer. You pretty much have to be a full on homer to post there and that likely applies to any college message board.

    I know I had my fill of it toward the latter years of Orlando Tubby Smith at Kentucky.

    I just got a call from by brother in law that he had won two tickets to the game tomorrow, so we're heading up in the morning. This might be an indicator game; we'll see. After last week, I am at least looking forward to getting a look at Geno.

    Always nice to beat Maryland, but WV should consider playing a whole game and not just half of one next week in Baton Rouge.

    Maybe they're working their way up to playing a full game. Played about 10 minutes last week, 30 minutes this week and hopefully 60 minutes next week.

    Re: 2010 WVU Football

    I liked it that they didn't completely cave after they gave up the second half points. They made a ton of mistakes (it was idiotic for Jock Sanders to throw that pass while he was being tackled, for instance,) but the defense stepped up in the end. I was pretty impressed with Geno Smith, even though many of the completions were more on the receivers (yeoman's job by Steadman Bailey) than on him, simply because he had the confidence to throw the ball when he needed to instead of prematurely tucking and running. I think he's going to be a good one.

    On the whole, a fun game. Well, except for the sunburn I'm treating right now. Next week will likely be another story, but this one gives me a little more hope for a decent season.

    Sure seems that way don't it?!

    Oh well we are 3-0 and hopefully the Big East title is coming back home where it should be in Mo-Town this year...I'm sick of pretenders (you know who you are!) NOT representing the Big East well in their BCS games!
