Opinion by George O’Bryan:
I was watching EPSN this week and sports analyst Trevor Matich inferred that the Chick-fil-a kickoff game was a ‘cupcake’ for Alabama.
According to Matich, WVU would be a ‘cupcake game’ for Oklahoma and a few other Big 12 Teams. I don’t know about the WVU Coaches, players and fans, but I take offense to this moron calling any college football contest a ‘cupcake game’.
According to ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit, WVU was going to be nothing more than a pastry snack for Oklahoma in the Tostito’s Bowl. The same was said about WVU when they met Clemson in the Orange Bowl, and we all know the outcome of those games.
Just once, I would love to see ESPN have the game announcers face the WVU coaches, players and fans after WVU dominates, and then see what they have to say.
I hope the coaches take this and put up something in the locker room at WVU and the Georgia Dome, to get the players all hyped and pumped up for the game.
Calling WVU a cupcake for Alabama or anyone else should be enough to get their adrenaline going. I seriously doubt WVU is a pastry selection for anyone this year, and ‘Bama won’t be winning the ‘Chick-fil-a game’ on August 30th.
I believe WVU will have either a 9 – 3 or 10 – 2 season and will play in a bowl game. I think WVU will start off the season 5 – 0. Yes, I say WVU will beat Alabama, Towson, Maryland, Oklahoma and Kansas.
Just so everyone knows: WVU isn’t a ‘Cupcake’ for anyone.
GO EERs!!! Beat the Tide and show ESPN who the ‘cupcake’ is!!!!
