I know that this is suppose to be a padre blog but oh well we named it pads and ends for a reason. Anyway I am pumped about the West Virginia/Oklahoma Fiesta bowl match up tomorrow night. I really hope that WVU can shock some people and win another big bowl game. The way I feel for Rich Rodriguez is the same way i feel for Nick Saban d-bags. I hope that Steve Slaton can find his way back into the powerful WVU rushing attack. The past two games he has rushed the ball 19 times for 65 yards. Are you kidding me???? Slaton is possibly one of the 5 best running backs in college right now (D-Mac, Hart, Smith, Slaton, and Rice with the Freshman from Geogria right in the mix). In order for WV to win the game I think that Slaton is going to have to have a monster game. Noel Devine and Owen Schmitt and Pat White will all need to have big games in the rushing department. Along with a solid rushing attack which will be hard against the Sooner defense White will have to throw the ball effectively. He has plenty of viable options and even a few playmakers on the outside. Darius Reynaud and Dorrell Jalloh must play big both in the passing and rushing game.
Defensively they must stop the passing attack that the Sooners have. Bradford is a very good quaterback and might even be a force at the next level. They also have a couple of receivers in Malcolm Kelly Juaquin Iglesias and Jermaine Gresham. I am not so much concerned in the rushing game of the Sooners since the loss of AP to the NFL has left them without a 1000 yard rusher on the season.
Ultimately, i think that the Sooners might be too much for the Mountaineers but I will still be cheering my heart out.
LEEEETTTTTSSSS GO MOUNTAINEERS!
