Default Re: WVU in the National Title Race???

Actually, the problem lies in the computer rankings. I think this has happened to Boise and BYU before, where they go undefeated, but since they have such a cupcake schedule, they don't earn enough points to play their way into the BCS games, let alone the national championship.

The way to address this for teams from conferences like the Big East is to man up like the Texas' and OSU's, and schedule legitimate BCS contending teams with early season openings instead of scheduling Middle Eastern Central State for tune-up games.

As a former WVU student, I follow the team fairly regularly - they do look strong this season, no doubt. But I don't like all of this national championship talk - they aren't on that level yet. Let's face it, the Big East may as well be the SWAC when it comes to football - the only thing that makes them relevant is the BCS automatic bid. It was nice to see them beat Georgia last year, but don't expect that to happen again this year.

As for switching conferences, doesn't the SEC already have 12 teams? If the spot opens up, though, they should take it without any hesitation. Big conference + big exposure = better recruits.

The "argument" should be about if they WILL! IF they're one of only two undefeated tems left at the end of the season, I believe (just my opinion) that they WILL be in the championship game, deserving it or not.That's just the way the system works. Fans may not like the BCS system, but, it's what's in place now.

I believe that WVU will win, well..., maybe all their games... but the reason is... is because who are they gonna play? The Big East aint nothing anymore and the BCS needs to get out of connection with that conference champion being in the BCS automatically. Pitt aint as good as they used to be and who else is there to play?

Agree with Suit. There could be four or five teams at the top with one loss at the end. The coaches poll might not give them the leg they need. And OSU, Auburn and USC could run the table and be unbeaten - maybe. ND will have a loss or even two since they go into LA to play SC.

I like WVU's coach and team but I'm not convinced today that they are in the Top 4 and the schedule won't help to make their case.

But all that can change with Pitt's and Louisville's success. Overall there are too many weak schedules out there...lead by FSU.

But I have to wonder how much longer the alums are going to wait for the Fridge to right the ship. Rumors are thar backwater inquiries have already been made about Larry Johnson's avaliability at Penn State.
i realize upsets happen, but it sure won't be md beating wv,it will be wv,beating wv.

i don't think its fridges fault. its the recruiting and lack of talent. and as soon as they get a little talent ,they leave for the nfl. (vernon davis,jaquel jackson) they've got the same problems as the basketball program.

You have to recruit your own state or your screwed.
it's the damn alumni's fault!!! apparently their not offering nice enough houses and cars to these high school kids!!!
seriously though...if you were a highly recruited player and were approached by a nationally ranked, winning tradition history team, and the terps,who you gonna pick?
success breeds success (see duke basketball) in the ncaa and md football doesn't have a history of success.right now their barely beating division 2 schools!!!
