West Virginia’s Woes Continue In Blowout Loss To TCU

West Virginia’s Woes Continue In Blowout Loss To TCU

At this point, we’re just hoping for one conference win so we don’t join our friends to the north in humiliation. I hate to say this, but this West Virginia basketball team is irrevocably broken. The Mountaineers (8-9, 0-5) suffered an embarrassing 98-67 loss to a TCU Horned Frogs (13-3, 2-2) team that battled depth issues of their own tonight in Fort Worth, and it’s all but certain that this team will break the record for worst conference start, set by Gale Catlett’s final squad. The Horned Frogs opened up a 21-7 lead midway through the first half, and West Virginia was never able...

If Brown can get these two players to Morgantown, the man can do almost anything West Virginia Mountaineers head coach Neal Brown said during his press conference that in-state recruiting would be a priority for the Mountaineers. If a talented player existed in the state, the school would do everything it could to make sure they came to West Virginia. Fans are now beginning to see a small bit of return on that talk as Neal Brown has convinced consensus five-star offensive lineman Darnell Wright to at least consider the Mountaineers.
