Mountaineer football is gearing up. Auburn is predicted to top its division in the SEC so our match up with them will be a proverbial “clash of Titans.” Just like last year I predict that this season will be awash across the country with upsets. The “skill gap” between teams is just plain getting less and less each year. My prediction for this year? I think the Mountaineers will lose one but still be ranked in the Top Five going into the bowl selections. Sound familiar? Yep, a lot like last year. Considering the Fiesta Bowl triumph, a repeat of last year would be fine with me.
