"Hello darkness, my old friend."
I could be wrong, but I think Simon and Garfunkel were thinking about that dreaded time during the year when college football is on hiatus as they wrote those lyrics.
Like I said, I could be wrong.
With all the buildup and budding anticipation for Dana Holgorsen and the megatons of offense being brought with him to Morgantown, W. Va., it seemed like the 2011-2012 season would never come.
Now, it seems it came and went in the blink of an eye.
Holgorsen delivered on the hype, though, as the West Virginia Mountaineers tallied a 10-3 record and absolutely massacred Clemson in the Orange Bowl, 70-33.
Now, we can resume with the speculation as to what the future holds for West Virginia. Foremost amongst all the things yet to be determined is which conference West Virginia will call home in the coming year.
Since that issue is no doubt the most oft discussed of any concerning the Mountaineers football program, I decided it's only right to have a little fun with it.
Some of you will think this is completely absurd, others might even have a chuckle or two. I'm hoping it's a bit of both.
Without regard for conference affiliation or distance between venues, I've come up with the dream schedule for the Mountaineers in the 2012-2013 season.
