I went up for Gameday and to the game. Pretty disappointed by our performance. I know we lost by 26, but truthfully it was a much closer game than that. WVU needed to play damn near perfect to have a chance at winning and they kept shooting themselves in the foot. Change about 3 plays in that game and it goes down to the wire.

On friday (9/23), the day before the game about 30-40 LSU students were running in and out of classes at WVU and interrupting class with LSU chants and cheers!! In my opinion, as awesome of a college prank revovling around football that I have ever heard and truly hilarious!!
What happened to your boys? I know you were joking, but we couldn't get it going in the 1st half. I wasn't worried because of how well our D was playing and we've been a 2nd half team all season, but I was starting to wonder for a minute...........
