West Virginia vs Maryland

Oh, look WVU is playing another unranked, non-conference opponent this week. *snore*

Seriously, you guys. I’m dying of boredom here. Once again, unless WVU makes some major mistakes, this should be another easy win. The Terrapins are not looking good this season, we’re favored to win by 20 points, and we’ve beaten them the last 6 times we met. Throw in the fact that this is a home game for WVU, and honestly, I don’t even know if I’m going to watch the whole game.

I have important things to do tomorrow, like go to the Farmer’s Market, clean my kitchen, and try to keep my toddler from jumping on the couch. I’ll have the game on in the background so I can fume about all the tackles the defense is missing and daydream about Geno Smith being the first Mountaineer to win the Heisman.

I mean, have you seen Geno Smith’s stats? He has an 88% completion rate, and that’s with barely playing in the 4th quarter of the last two games. His biggest competition, USC’s Matt Barkley, stunk it up last week. He threw two interceptions and zero touchdowns. I don’t know what his completion rate was but it was somewhere in the neighborhood of not good at all. Some football blogs are suggesting that Oregon’s De’Anthony Thomas could be a contender for the Heisman.

See, that’s going to be a problem in this household. My husband happens to be a U of O graduate and rabid Duck fan. I’m generally fine with this, just as I’m fine with our daughter being part Duck. WVU and Oregon do not usually come up in the same conversation, but now that they are starting to, I’m predicting we might have issues.

When we were dating, like the loving girlfriend I was, I bought him a WVU hat. He wore it for awhile, but now that we’re living in enemy territory Pittsburgh, somehow it “doesn’t fit right”. Not only that, but he’s attending a Pitt game with my dad and brother-in-law in a few weeks. I’ve been told it’s a “boy’s night out” thing, but I suspect an ulterior motive.

Regardless, come Saturday night I will be a supportive wife, decked out in an Oregon sweatshirt, watching a smack down being handed to that traitor Rich Rodriguez Arizona.
