While it is difficult to believe that the talent level remaining on this team will allow the program to drop to a 3-8 mark like the one in 2001, there will be some "growing pains" which will accompany the advent of a new system. And there may be times when fans might clamor for the return of the old because the new isn't resulting in wins.

Jim Butta in today's News and Sentinel...and I could not disagree more. First, bringing 3-8 into this equation is silly. Second, Dana Holgorsen has built a strong reputation of easy transition. He himself says his system isn't difficult to pick up, and that plays out in the statistics where his offenses rank in the top 10 nationally in the very first year. To give you an idea of how confident I am in this offense, I have a bet that we're top six nationally in scoring. Growing pains? Psssh.

Highly Touted Recruit Joseph Jackson Verbals To Mountaineers

+

Joseph Jackson, a highly touted linebacker/safety prospect from the same high school in Jacksonville, FL as incoming recruit KJ Myers, has pledged to the Mountaineers. March verbals aren't worth much, but you'd rather be on the good end of one than the losing end. Schools on that losing end? Auburn, Notre Dame, Clemson, and both North and South Carolina.

Bruce Pearl Fired At Tennessee

+

This has little to no relevance to West Virginia basketball, except that it's a major story nationally. Like the debacle Tressel currently finds himself in at Ohio State, it's amazing how a minor violation can spiral into a major (and successful) college coach losing his job. I wouldn't expect Pearl to be out of work long, considering he can coach, and Providence is currently in the market. Could it happen? Nah...

Here are the last 39.7 seconds of today's game. From three points down to two points up in the span of eight seconds, this was the most improbable of wins for the Mountaineers. And while Casey Mitchell has been less than stellar throughout the last half of the season, his two clutch threes made all the difference today. Great win!

WVU Up To #17 In ESPN Insider's RPI

3

WVU, currently at 19-10 and unranked in both major polls, has moved up to #17 overall in ESPN Insider's RPI. We now have an astounding five wins over top 25 opponents, which ties us with Syracuse and trails only fellow Big East members Pitt, Notre Dame, and St. John's. We also have the third best overall SOS and second best non-conference SOS. These are strong, strong factors come seeding time later this month.
