Instead of watching game film of themselves or their upcoming opponents, the Mountaineers should watch a clip from the sixth installment of the Rocky series, Rocky Balboa.

The film itself wasn't the best, but I did enjoy this particular scene—a scene WVU should play on a continuous loop on the monitors in the Puskar Center for the rest of the season.
