You are looking live at the quaint Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, which seats a mere 7,201 here between the football stadium and the football team’s practice fields on TCU’s campus. Plainest gym I’ve seen so far in the conference, but it can be problematic.
Two ways to look at this, but I’m going to take the position that this benefits WVU. TCU had lost eight in a row and summoned something special, to its credit, to control Kansas. Slumping Kansas. The place was sold out for the first and probably only time this season and, honestly, the Horned Frogs will be fortunate to top 5,000 today.
Can’t see the fans having the same energy and impact and can’t see the team having the same inspiration in consecutive games. And on top of that, it’s not like WVU is overlooking this one, which would have been easier to do had TCU lost Wednesday and not nabbed what is said to be perhaps the biggest win in school history.
The Mountaineers were never in real danger in their 21-point win against TCU last month and have played better and more consistently since then. They ought to sustain that … but this is why we’re here. By the way, TCU is celebrating lettermen day and will honor all-time leading scorer Darrell Browder at halftime.
If I asked you who was TCU’s basketball player, who is its Jerry West, would you have said Darrell Browder? I would not. I would have gone with Lee Nailon. Don’t sleep on Lee Nailon. Maybe Kurt Thomas. But seriously, Lee Nailon. He was on this team…
That team used to mess fools up. Yet this is not then and the Horned Frogs boast no NCAA Tournament trips since and have the weirdest arrangements of banners.
Bam! Front and center.
This is the 1,000th career game for Bob Huggins, by the way. He’ll celebrate by having a full roster of healthy and non-disciplined players for the first time since the first Texas game. Nobody is in a dog house and Terry Henderson and Matt Humphrey are both here. Humphrey did a complete warm up, so my guess is he’s good to go.
Play my song. Play it now …
