If I had to explain my article in the comments, I didn’t explain my article well in my article.  Not much more to be said about that.

Stick to my positions with confidence and humility.  Even after all the comments, I still believe West Virginia has to step up its out-of-conference schedule.  We can’t count of the Big East to provide us with quality opponents as the league did in 2006. 

However, there are several sides to all positions.  Be ready to accept and learn from what my readers have to say.

Be positive.  In other words, don’t be wise-ass.

Mountaineer fans are loyal, knowledgeable, numerous, and vocal.  I’d better have my facts straight.  Lindy’s 2009 preseason magazine has LSU, Florida State, and Michigan State ranked sixth, 18th, and 24th respectively.  It would have been nice if I would have considered those rankings.

Borrowing from b/r writer Roger Pimentel: there's one thing we all can agree on - West Virginia football is awesome!
