Yesterday, I wrote about the WVU-Auburn Game being a real test.
Yesterday, I wrote about a Mountaineer team that had a lot to prove. A Mountaineer team that needed to prove to the doubters out there that we can compete.
Yesterday - here were our stats:
Total Yards: 509
First Downs: 23
Total Plays: 80
Passing: 24 of 41
Stats like these should almost automatically equal a win. But when you add in 6 turnovers, yes 6, you end up with a final score of:
Auburn 41 West Virginia 30
Losing a game always hurts. This one brought tears, yes real ones, to my eyes..
For today, I'm avoiding all airings of Sports Center - I can't relive it - and sometime this week I'll read the sports section of the paper to see just what the coaches and players think went wrong.
For today, I'm a die-hard Mountaineer fan and I'm looking ahead to Colorado.
For today, I'm ready for some Steeler Football - and hoping my boys in black pull out a win. (If not, it's gonna be a loooooong week.)
(PS I do not like the new spacing stuff that blogger is doing - anyone know how to make it space normally again?).
