Correct me if I’m wrong, but I got the distinct impression as I was combing through texts that you didn’t know quite what to think of the game Saturday.
Like, is it right to poke fun at Rasheed Marshall when, come on, Rasheed Marshall? Was Ford Childress supposed to light it up right from the start? Was a little trouble to be expected or to be highlighted? Can a struggle against Georgia State be forgiven or understood? Is West Virginia good or any good? Could you feel good about that game or did that game give you things to worry about? Who’s making plays at receiver? Is that a defense?
And, wait, you can send texts from inside the stadium?
I’m not sure many or any were answered and I think this season continues to ask questions, but to also supply intrigue. Rock tumbler, anyone? And 2-1 is better than 1-2 and, honestly, 1-2 was never really on the menu Saturday. Now you proceed to the game many of us circled as the season’s barometer. Don’t look now, but this is not your typical Randy Edsall team.
I wrote this last week, and I know it’s hard for many of you to get your head around, but Maryland, coached by Randy Edsall, is exciting.

Well, keep me company, catch me up. It’s a whole lot better than being stuck in a drive-time 9 to 5. I’d rather see T.F.G.D. My edits are in [brackets].
Do you hate the people on the media roundtable?
Hi, Juli. Sweet dreams!
It’s gameday, I’m at home & I STILL feel like there should be whiskey in this coffee.
In the blue lot sippin on orange dreamsicle shine in lieu of the real stuff – feel like this is what life would be like if WVU went to the ACC. #goacc
Thin at linebacker? Jewone Snow is ready to shine. Then he can go back to year to year.
I cant believe my texts are going though….oliver luck is a genius
We out chea.
Amazingly enough you ate getting this from INSIDE MPS
Do the circle
Rasheed had Nixon-Kennedy debate level nervousness and flop sweat going on. Hope he settles down for all our sakes.
“Look for Georgia State to keep the ball on the football.”
Call me ishmael
First drive and Rasheed already had dropped a mention of pre production meeting with coaches. That’s Phil Seeeems quality announcer trolling.
In shocking news the guy who couldn’t get practice reps the previous two weeks sucks on his first drive
Oh. Wait. That last text actually went right thru.
Didn’t think it would.
OK. Three points on his first drive. I’m all right with that.
Ford wasn’t built in a day.
What is Dana doing? 6 minutes have gone by and he still hasn’t called a timeout!
I still can’t express just how much it irks me that the jersey font makes 5′s look like upside down 2′s
Root Sports guy just said the DUMBEST thing about offensive line getting better push this week. Really? That ain’t Oklahoma out there chief.
Would love to know how many secondaries Childress faced in HS with better talent. Most?
Holy crap!! What am I seeing?
I believe with every ounce of my being that Millard would have yaked in that same scenario…
Millard……time to turn your hat backwards and pick up the clipboard .
Announcer mentions Childress but camera focuses on the other, darker #7
Solid effort by Rasheed on tv broadcast
Rasheed’s voice as thin as teen worker on The Simpsons
Well, that hurts. Good catch, gsu.
Hyman with some quality spearing work there
I bet when I read TFGD there will be a Hyman reference about now….
The dreds…the number…the (apparent) skills…K.White is Larry Fitzgerald in disguise isn’t he?
Well an INT against GSU is a new low.
WVU still hasn’t had a QB look off a receiver since Bulger.
Thinking that Oklahoma isn’t good
Rasheed Marshall is setting color commentary back 50 years with this effort. I’m ready to take an ice pick to my ears.
Had anybody checked whether this Ronnie Bell is not, in fact, the one from Bell Biv DeVoe?
Why do we have so much trouble with our offense? Isn’t this Holgersen’s specialty?
Is the font used on these uniform numbers Stroke Victim New Roman?
Dana’s long field goal attempt fetish must be stopped
Apparently 38 pts against air is, in fact, a challenge.
I was feeling froggy before the Wm&M game and proposed a shot of bourbon after every WVU td. Am still sober
Sticks was so open because the corners may have thought he was sleeping….
My lord he put too much air under that. But I get my second shot now
Is this going to be forever?
iCatch passes. Sometimes.
Thought Ford had the superior arm. He’s short-armed at least three now.
And that is football in the 21st century. Thank you legal system
Thru 10 quarters of football I really don’t feel like I know much about this team but what I think I know isn’t overly encouraging
Ford needs to put the women and children to bed and go looking for dinner.
Kevin white is f-ing fired.
Dreamius missed another block. Why was in blitz pick up on fourth down??
Dana does NOT read Good/Bad. Because Dreamius was in there to block a blitzer. Or attempt to.
Nope. Not real life. But, also, that guy totally stepped out of bounds.
#Big12DumpsterFire. Good thing we arent playing the blundering turds this year.
I knew Rich was a head football coach. I knew Bill Stewart was not. After 28 1/2 games I have no idea if Dana is or is not. #frustrating
I mustache you a question. Is Childress better than Millard?!
Georgia state and the points.
Rasheed’s spewing a river of cliches
Whole line stood and watched that last third down run
Is this the same team that *almost beat OU on the road with Millard?
Run blocking: “F”.
I can still see them winning with a blowout and I still won’t feel very good.
THAT is what can make a team better – TURNOVER!
Sideline interview with Bruce Irvin. No mention of suspension that’s fees him up to be there.
Thank God they haven’t played CEJ!
I miss cotton eye joe
It was all a Dream(ius)….
Little, small fingers!
