Up the Mountain

West Virginia is still one of the most exciting college football programs in the NCAA.

They're battling the Auburn Tigers (what's been up with them lately?) now on ESPN. They should win as they're up by ten with 6 minutes left. Pat White and the speedy backs are lighting up the Auburn defense. Why aren't they in the top ten?

They started off ranked number 8 in the country. The loss to East Carolina dropped them big (24-3). And then they lost to Colorado in overtime, effectively taking them out of the top 25.

Anyone who thinks West Virginia's a push over since they don't have a ranking next to their name will be sadly mistaken when they underestimate them. They can still win their conference and make it to a bowl game. I like them. I want them to win. They're better than Pittsburgh and can end up taking the Big East championship. Go Mountaineers.
