As I watched the ending of the Fiesta Bowl, I wondered: What if West Virginia had beaten Pitt?
Everyone in the country was refering to Oklahoma as the number-one skilled team in the country, but WVU put it on them bad!
So, where does this put WVU? Over Georgia? Many people said a blowout in their bowl game would push the Bulldogs number one. Well, in my opinion this was a more convincing win—all and all.
But regardless of the Mountaineers' final ranking, I just want to say that the play of leading senior Owen Schmitt literally brought tears to my eyes. As Owen expressed his feeling for the state of West Virginia I couldn't help but cry—Baby? No! Fan? Yes!
Schmitt showed the nation the true spirit of a Mountaineer. I just want Owen to know that he maybe done as a West Virginia player, but he will always be a Mountaineer!
From a true Mountaineer to another: Owen, I will always remember you!
