This game has been so bad that it's been exciting. WVU is doing everything they can to fail horribly. About 11 minutes left in a 3 point game. You should watch.
I'm rooting for Uconn, not because wvu fans are douchebags though, WVU seems to be chocking right now, and that horsecollar call was awful.

They are, indeed. Their pain, tonight, is delicious.
Well, you know what i meant =P, aside WVU fans being douchebags, at least our schedule has strenghten up, and as a bonus we've got to see wvu lost :)
Make us look good.
This is Big East football, basically not very good. Not very exciting. No tradition. It also shows what's happening at WVU post Rod, they get worse every year.
This game raises the question, who would win in a match between UM and WVU? I've to say that i like our chances, and that's weird...
Saturday night will make us look better. About the game specifically UCONN. They are running a Spread read option attack. how about that?
just proves that the Big East is WEAK....all the 3 and outs, dropped passes, and penalties by both teams is driving me nuts...I am not gonna lie- this is tough to watch....
Can Fraser's receivers drop any more of his passes?
... and still, no adjustment by the WV coaching staff. Very odd, because it's working for UConn.
huge punt with excellent coverage
This game is terrible. Both teams are just bad. WVU has fallen off the map since RR left, its incredible. UCONN is just bad.
Sporting the top shelf Emperor Palpatine mask.
Woo let's start playing for overtime at the 3:00 mark and go from there.
you didn't see the WVU/LSU game. they started playing for overtime, it seemed, at the 8 minute mark. only they weren't tied. it was some of the crappiest football i've ever watched between two "top 25" teams
I love that UCONN isn't even trying to call time outs or score in regulation. 2 time outs and almost a minute left. Pound the line 3 times.
Well, after WVU fumbles on the goal line in overtime it looks like it will work out for UCONN.
I wasn't home until halfway through the 4th. How did Frazer get in the game? I thought a freshman was going to start?
Edit: According to the box score Frazer played the whole game. Now looking at Uconnblog, I was apparently thinking about last week. http://www.theuconnblog.com/2010/10/21/1766205/endres-no-longer-a-husky-box-will-start-saturday Box (the redshirt freshman) was ruled out for this week because of a concussion.
Frazier took back the starting job as of Wednesday. Not sure if the freshman was injured or team violation punishment. I thought I heard about something but wasn't listening to announcers closely.
UCONN wins for the first time over WVU ever. Now 1-6.

If you take a look back at some of the Michigan-UConn preview material, there is a good reminder of just how remarkable that is. When Rodriguez was at WVU, WVU didn't just beat UConn, they destroyed them.
LULZ FUMBLE IN OVERTIME AT THE GOAL LINE.
I fully expect UCONN to miss a FG in the second half of the frame.
THANKS FOR NOT HOLDING ONTO THE DAMN BALL
I feel like the Buffalo Wild Wings in Storrs that doesn't exist has a bar tender that keeps pushing the button for more overtime.
The kick is u...................
...the obligatory Time Out. Please hold.
and it's good.
At least the furniture stores tomorrow will see an increase in sales...
and Bill Stewart Loses....
Thank you UCONN
second straight Big East loss may be Bills last nail in the coffin
welcome to TWIS
I was thinking the same thing. Look at WVU's stats all season, and you see an offense that cannot move the ball outside of Devine. Let's see how the Orangemen fare against a slightly better Cincy team.
Slightly better Cincy team? How do you figure? Schedules are comparable, but the only common opponent Cincy lost to by 8 and WVU beat by 2 TDs.
As far as Syracuse, it's still a great win for Syracuse to beat WVU. As of a year or two ago, there was still no way they'd win that game. The way they beat WVU was not crappy football like was played last night. Their win was clean and convincing on the defensive side. They've still got some growing issues on offense as they switch back to a more traditional system, but that's not the side of the ball winning them games so far.
Syracuse beat those Bearcats 31-7. The Orange are BOWL ELIGIBLE.
I'm right here buddy, and I'm still ecstatic with what Marrone and company have done so far to turn around the SU program.
No kidding. WVU has just been pretty much terrible all season. This is a WVU team that lost to Syracuse and should have lost to a terrible Marshall team earlier this year. That was the game where the Marshall kicker missed the FG in overtime (it went right over the goal post).
Losing to a team that Rich Rod pasted will not site well in Morgantown. Think Bill Stewart will be facing pitchforks when he returns home
Bill Stewart is a really nice guy, but in no way is he a good football coach. He's in way over his head, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him fired after this season.
Like someone else I know...
When your defense holds a team to 16 points, you should expect to win. My, how the WVU offense has fallen. I know that White and Slaton are gone, but that was ugly.
and that kid is good.
Their defense has not given up more than 21 all season. They're ranked 5th in scoring D (~13pts/gm) and have 3 f'ng losses! I'm shocked that this has happened with Stew at the helm.

Really? I don't think many people who have paid much attention to WVU the last several years are particularly surprised by it. Stewart was handed a boatload of talent and did very little with it and then proceeded to fail to fill in much talent behind those players. Devine and Sanders, as freshmen under Rodriguez, were far more productive players than they are as seniors under Stewart. That really says something.
Man that was a painful game to watch.. neither of those teams can move the ball..
Frazer has got to be one of the worst D1 QB's i have ever watched in my lifetime personally.. If they didn't have todman my god would that team be abysmal
have you also totally blocked out 2008?
I figured i would get jumped on if i mentioned anything about sheridan and threet, but to both of their defenses.. they would of been much better players in a pro style system..
Why did I take so much pleasure in that loss? That was right up there with....nah, I won't say it. Both of those teams looked awful.
Never seen so many non ironic "UNACCEPTABLE"s in one thread.
miss Coach Rod yet?
Wow that is a fantastic thread. My personal fave:
Stewart is by far a better man than Rich Rod. And Stewart by far has better intentions than Rich Rod. BUT Rod is WAY MORE OF A COACH. I never thought I'd say it but if he gets fired from Michigan and makes a public apology, I'd take him back. It'll never happen but I'm just saying.
Uh, guys? I think if RR gets fired from UM he's not looking to return to WVU, 'kay?
Q: whats bill stewart and bobby huggins have in common?
A: they are both trying to make west virginia a basketball school.
he would have hung up 40 points on UConn. WVU would be a national title contender, but they have fallen off since they hired Stewart. With the loss of Doc Holliday, the recruiting is going to suffer.
