You know they'll end up putting us up in a Super 8 or something.  Not that they're trying to be dicks, but because its the best they got.

 :curse: that was the only hotel in Morgantown open for us. 

Maybe my room will be next to #life  :love:

It's a FACT that no one wanted to bring West Virginia into either the ACC or the SEC, because of this very problem...they lower the image of any conference they belong to.

Why did they let them into the Big 12.  Great question.

The answer is that we have such huge college football brand names in Texas, Kansas State, and Oklahoma, AND so few existing low-image programs (obviously Baylor is the issue here with the drug scandal and death in Men's basketball, but that's not football).  So, we could take a gamble. 

Is it paying off?  Another good question.

The answer is clearly "NO."  They are national joke after losing so badly to Tech.  What little they brought to the conference is now gone, and we are simply left with a school with a horrible academic and social reputation that has really poor athletic teams. 


This whole West Virginia thing has been a complete disaster.

We should have invited Pitt. Better sports programs, better academics, wealthier fanbase, etc.

Geno Cook died last week guys.  God bless their hearts for not shutting down the stadium even though they probably should.

I think you are mixing him up with the other guy.  I did this exact same thing.  Had no idea who either of them was before last week, but their names are so similar that it's tough to tell them apart.

The "sinking ship" of the Big XII became the "life raft" for WV.  Says it all, really.

Yes, this is an outstanding post by Pete. I don't think the second point (bolded) has been discussed, at least not in depth. This will likely be the nail in the coffin of the Big 12, not just KSU.

KSU doesn't need the Big 12 as bad they need KSU. We could go independent. Easy.

I heard people smoke their meth right in the stadium and nobody even cares. I'm really worried for the safety of Snyder and tiny little baby Lockett. I mean all the other players/coaches should be able to fight off the methed up, rage filled hillbillies that will attack them for "running up the score", but Snyder is brittle and Lockett still has to protect his kidneys.   :ohno:

when people think of ksu cats football, they immediately think of legendary head coach LHC Bill Snyder and our decade + of dominance, and BCS games, i.e.- the big boys of college football ('bama, usc, ksu, nd, etc)

when people think of west virginia, i don't think they associate it with anything but maybe the head basketball coach bob huggins.

so when we play against them, they don't see anything on the wvu sideline and they see a college  football blue blood on our sideline.

On the other hand, West Virginians must acknowledge that some of the stereotypes discussed come from some real places. Obesity, diabetes and lack of education have become perennial thorns in the sides of residents of this state. These factors greatly reduce the quality of life for many of our friends and neighbors.

Seriously, maybe tlbl should stay home. This is information is not going to allow me sleep at night.
