Sam James and Sean Ryan Will be Favorite Targets for Austin Kendall

West Virginia opens their 2019 football campaign this Saturday, August 31 at home against James Madison. The Mountaineers lost a ton of key players from last season and have to replace a lot of talent at several positions. One of those positions is receiver, but what if I told you that the talent may be just as good

Mark it Down: WVU Will Surprise the Naysayers this Season

Three and nine. 4-8. 2-10. Those are some of the “experts” predictions this year for the West Virginia Mountaineers football team. And as we all know, the “experts” are always right. Right? Not this year. New head coach Neal Brown enters his first season in Morgantown with low expectations from the outside world so there is really no

Macon is Gone, Now What?

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.--Last year around this time there were rumors on both sides about Devin Williams.

Savor this Moment: Believe in WVU

  The West Virginia Mountaineers (28-8) are headed to the Sweet 16 for the fourth time under head coach Bob Huggins—all other WVU coaches combined to go there three times—and the word “sweet” definitely describes that feeling this time. With a dominating 83-71 win over Notre Dame, the Mountaineers all but started what

West Virginia is Being Disrespected And They Know It

  The West Virginia Mountaineers are going back to their old stomping grounds. Is it Buffalo, where the Mountaineers started their 2010 Final Four run? Nope. Is it the NCAA tournament in general, where they have been a frequent member over the last several seasons? Close, but that’s not it, either. West

How Can Mountaineers Hoist Big 12 Tournament Trophy?

  KANSAS CITY, Mo.--It has been a strange season for the West Virginia Mountaineers (24-7, 12-6 Big 12). At times, they have looked like the nation’s top program with no flaws whatsoever and other times it was a legit thought if they could defeat Morgantown High School. For some fans, this season may

2017 WVU Basketball: Do Not Attempt To Predict What Will Happen Next

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.--If there is one thing we have learned about the West Virginia Mountaineers 2017 hoops squad it's this--we have learned absolutely nothing about them.
