These days, if a fan wants to look up footage of players, games, press conferences or any other specific highlights, then he or she can usually find it on YouTube.
West Virginia University with its storied football program has a decent selection of footage out there. Here is a list of my top 10 favorite videos, in no particular order.
Hope you enjoy!
Here is a video that shows some good hits to get us started.
Patrick White, who would ultimately become the NCAA leader in quarterback rushing yards, has had some amazing plays: passing, blocking and, of course, running.
Here is a video of some of Pat White's longer touchdown runs.
White had 18 games in which he rushed for 100 yards or more. He ranks fifth all time in the number of 100-yard rushing games..
He makes it look way too easy!
The 2006 Sugar Bowl: Here is where WVU started its recent tradition of winning BCS games.
I had a hard time finding any footage of this game with better video quality.
This was the storyline of the 2007 season—WVU's 2008 Fiesta Bowl victory.
WVU was humiliated by Pitt, abandoned by its head coach, was a heavy underdog and doubted by everyone in the country but West Virginians.
Honestly, do I need to say more?
Noel Devine was an amazing runner. He could juke, spin, block and sprint.
It would have been nice to see him play a little better in his senior season with the injury he had, but I wish him well in the CFL.
It's always fun to see footage of Old Mountaineer Field, especially when that footage is of the Backyard Brawl.
Was the 2011 Brawl the last one for the next several years?
This was by far the best game in the series against Marshall. Seeing the life go out of all the Herd fans when WVU forced overtime was priceless.
The 2012 Friends of Coal Bowl is the last one scheduled for the series. Hopefully, at some point, West Virginia can get Marshall back on the schedule and continue a winning tradition.
Major Harris is still the only Mountaineer quarterback to play in a national title game.
The 2009 College Football Hall of Fame inductee can still be seen in Morgantown at home games on a regular basis.
Stedman Bailey leads all WVU receivers in history for single-season receiving yards, and the amazing thing about that is that he was only a sophomore in 2011.
He and Tavon Austin will lead a deep receiving corps for the Mountaineers in their first season in the Big 12.
