http://www.eightlaces.com/eight-laces-top-25-week-five/Follow @Dan VastaThe West Virginia Mountaineers look as good as it gets offensively, and all of a sudden they are BCS title contenders thanks to Geno Smith putting up record-setting numbers.How one can throw for 22 TD without an INT is beyond me, but Dana Holgorsen’s offense cannot be stopped. The playmakers are playing as if they are possessed, and they will all be playing on Sunday’s before you know it.Tavon Austin looks as close as it gets to a Percy Harvin, and Stedman Bailey has some feistiness that even Carolina’s Steve Smith would be jealous of.The explosion on this offense is absurd and Geno Smith has been spinning it like nobody we have seen in quite a while in terms of production.Having better numbers then RGIII did last season at this point is remarkable and the only legit question is what it would take for Geno Smith to not win the Heisman.Well, Geno would still be the favorite to win the Heisman even if the Mountain...
BEST OF MAXIM
So, about this whole Geno Smith thing…does anybody have any questions? Anybody? No, didn’t think so. Not after what Geno did to Texas on Saturday. Make no mistake, the Longhorns defense is no joke. Granted, I wouldn’t put them up there with the Alabama’s or the LSU’s of the world, but with four players currently projected as first or second round picks, they certainly...
Whereas week 5′s keyword was survive, week 6′s theme was thrive. South Carolina, Ohio State, and Florida announced loud and clear that they’re going to be threats to win their respective divisions, though the Buckeyes can’t officially win anything. West Virginia finished its Big 12 entrance with a road win over Texas that wasn’t quite as close as the 48-45 final would...
West Virginia University sophomore running back Andrew Buie continues to have a career weekend. Not only was Buie named the Offensive Champion by the coaching staff after his performance against Texas, but was also named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week. Top all that off with Buie being recognized by ESPN as a finalist for [...]
Dana Holgorsen doesn't believe in "trap games." In fact, he said he doesn't even understand what the term means. So he expects his West Virginia team to be just as fired up for Saturday's game at Texas Tech as it was for last week's 48-45 win at Texas.
More than a week ago, West Virginia cornerback Pat Miller was being booed off the field – his home turf – after a poor performance vs. Baylor.
With Heisman Trophy candidate Geno Smith leading the way, undefeated West Virginia is in the midst of its best start in six years.
Andrew Buie's sudden emergence could make things all the more difficult on opposing defenses that are already struggling to contain the Mountaineers' high-powered offense.
Smith and the fifth-ranked Mountaineers look to keep rolling Saturday...
West Virginia's Geno Smith is having the type of year other players dream about, and is now one the leading contenders for the Heisman Trophy. He's thrown 24 TDs and no interceptions so far this year and he's operating Dana Holgerson's offense with a Joey Chestnut at a hot dog eating contest like efficiency.So how do you slow down Geno? It appears the only way to...
There are 16 unbeaten teams remaining in college football so let's take a look at how they rank in comparison. Of course, the Alabama Crimson Tide are number one in points allowed per game and of the combined three rankings listed (ppg, papg, & owl). The Tide could possibly play two undefeated teams this season in Mississippi State and the SEC East division champion. Alabama...
It's that time of year again people. Now that we've got half a season in the books it's time to start seriously focusing on the races for conference championships, crystal footballs, and that 25 pound stiff arm trophy that we all obsess over for two months a year. Without further ado...here's my Heisman ballot heading into Week 7.
Book Your Flight to New York:...
Week six of the college football season proved to be a separation Saturday for many of the top teams as FSU, Georgia, LSU and Texas all fell from the ranks of the unbeaten. Our Heisman front-runner, Geno Smith, had another great performance this weekend as his Mountaineers toppled the Longhorns. Would he be able to separate even more from his competitors?
What you'll see...
So lets recap real quick, LSU, FSU and Georgia all have two things in common, the first being that they were all upset ( while I may still argue a 5 losing to a 6 isn’t really an upset but it is what it is) and secondly I called them all. Could have made myself a nice little chunk of change parlaying the three money lines, but that is neither here nor there. I got a little...
