The football Gods allowed for the impossible over the last couple weeks. After an embarrassing loss to South Florida that could have set the program back a couple years thanks to its ESPN coverage and our complete inability to play smash-mouth football the Mountaineers have improved and moved through the rest of its schedule nicely. Once upon a time, a loss during the regular season all but assured a team that its National Championship chances were nil. But, not in 2007.
Too many tough games, too many average teams have left the National Championship horizon devoid of undefeated teams and full of one-loss Division 1 what-ever-the-hell they call this division preparing for a trip to New Orleans. Thanks to a nice dismantling of UConn and our loss occurring early rather than later in the schedule my Mountaineers are poised to go to New Orleans and play for the National Championship.
The only obstacle is the University of pit. At home. I want to see if the score board for Mountaineer field has triple digits as we pound the Panthers into the artificial turf. Ideally Pat, Steve, Noel and the other starters are enjoying Gatorade on the sidelines thinking about the BCS championship game by mid third quarter.
They say that if WVU wins the National Championship the burning couches in Morgantown will be visible from space. To that, I say – where’s the matches?
"Let’s Bring on the Mountaineers!!!"
