On Friday night, I dreamt that West Virginia lost to Texas, 60-38.
Saturday morning, I woke up and vowed not to speak of the dream. I made predictions and talked with friends and colleagues about expectations for the game all day long. Saturday night, I wrote and tweeted throughout the game.
Remarkably, I managed to abstain from tweeting or at all mentioning my dream to anyone, in fear of the potential jinx. I'm not going to say that I altered the outcome in anyway, but obviously the dream didn't come true.
Instead, the Mountaineers pulled off a thrilling 48-45 upset in Austin thanks to an exemplary team effort.
The win even vaulted WVU to No. 5 in the Associated Press poll and No. 4 in the USA Today coaches' poll.
