Show Notes:

Segment 1: WVU Football wins 56-10 over Eastern Kentucky

  • Spread was 40... WVU covers!
  • Zach Fraiser...Fairmont guy starting at center due to suspensions.
    • That kid is going to be playing in the NFL.
    • First True Freshman to start at Center I’m over 40 years.
    • Five former Polar Bears suited up for this game, which will make Gweedoe proud.
    • Coach Browns Likes his competitive spirit... says mature beyond his year... got lots of reps.
    • In camp he went against Darius Stills every day during camp (Fairmont on Fairmont).
  • 11 players suspended... No real reason given... non-covid related... violated teams rule.
  • Leddie Brown having a nice game early (1 rush, 1 rec TD so far).
  • Anything out wide kind of looks bad for this offense / O line.
  • Special teams looks...interesting. Penalties and a near fumble from Sinkfield.
  • EKU with some confidence in the 2nd qtr. some success with QB runs and then WVU D lost on a long td throw. WVU 21-7.
  • Who are the folks in the stands? Not many, but I’m curious. Family and staff members. Sounds like we’ve piped in crowd noise (first down chants, etc).
    • We did pipe in crowd noise... and 3rd down sounds.
    • Missing Charles Hayes and his dancing!!!
  • EKU coach has a "Hot Mic" situation.
  • EKU had a 28 year old player on the field(?).
  • Sinkfield running well, 2nd qtr TD. WVU 28-7.
  • Takes the refs a while to figure (the many) penalties out.
  • Farverus got some special teams time... and some penalties.
  • EKU not great... Martinsburg might have been a better matchup this weekend.
  • Receivers still waiting on long throw attempts?
  • LOTS of EKU O Line penalties.
  • Alonzo Addae with a great interception, which made ESPN's Top 10.
  • Leddie Brown with another rushing TD. WVU 35-7.
  • What are the "Juice Squad" signs?
    • Another one said something like... "Let's Get Juiced"
  • Ford-Wheaton td catch (after an almost great td catch the previous play). HALFTIME: WVU 42-7.
    • They really wanted to get him a TD... 3 targets right in a row.
  • Austin Kendall at QB to begin the 2nd half.
    • Kendall looks like he’d rather be anywhere else.
    • Kendall came in and really starting forcing passes... looked back.. trying to win job back.
  • Ryan holding call and Sinkfield TD gets called back.
  • Sinkfield with his 2nd rushing TD. WVU 49-10.
  • Tony Mathis in at RB.
  • Staley misses a 25 yard fg. WTF...SPECIAL TEAMS!!!
  • By the end of the 3rd... we were pretty much all backups in the game.
  • Garrett Greene in at QB. Gets unceremoniously slammed to the turf.
    • YEAH BABY!!! Welcome to D1.
    • Looks sharper and with way more energy than Kendall, imo.
    • Looks like a jackwagon taunting EKU players. Coach Brown tells him to politely shut up.
  • Lorenzo Dorr in at RB. And then immediately out.
  • Mathis with a rushing td. WVU 56-10. Extra point barely makes it through. Not sure what’s up with the kicking today.
  • After the win... 247 Sports has WVU playing in the Cheese-it Bowl vs Virginia Tech. (might be a little early for that).

Big 12 Blech

  • Iowa State loses to Louisiana (The Ragin Cajuns) 31-14.
    • ISU doesn't score in the 2nd half after being up 14-10.
    • Brock Purdy (who we hear so many wonderful things about) goes 16/35, 145 yds, 0 TD, 1 INT. Yuck.
    • Cajuns were 11-3 last year (ok, but two of those losses were to App State, and the 3rd was to Miss State). This isn't a team that should beat a Big 12 school seemingly easy.
    • Does this change our pre-season thoughts on ISU (I think definitely).
  • Kansas State loses to Arkansas State 35-31.
    • Arkansas State scored with under a minute left to take the lead (if that helps any).
    • Arkansas State was without 20 players, including 8 starters!
    • Kansas State's biggest weakness seemed to be their pass defense (shocking), but it looks like their run game was very bad.
    • Whatever question marks Kansas State had coming into the season just became exclamation points.
  • Kansas lost to Coastal Carolina.
  • Texas Tech almost lost to Houston Baptist.
    • Final 35-33 (but most of those 33 from HBU came against the #2s.
  • Oklahoma - Spencer Rattler looked awesome. Rs-Freshman.


  • UVa vs VT postponed.
    • Due to Covid issues at VT
  • Notre Dame played Duke at home and students were in the stands.
  • You know who looked bad on Saturday??? THE BigTen.
