Conventional wisdom is nothing more than what all of us think today which, as sure as the weather, will change tomorrow. This morning on Morning Joe all the pundits were bemoaning that Mitt Romney will be so “beat up” by the end of the primaries that he has no chance in the fall. It was only four years ago that Hilliary took Obama to the door of the convention before bowing out at the last minute. Obama was certainly “beat up” in the primaries. He did OK in the fall. This is going to be a very interesting election this year – for sure.
“We need reform from the bottom down not from the top up!”
“If this law works, I’m in favor of it. If it doesn’t, I’m against it!”
“Generally speaking, politicians are average people, untrained for the job they are doing.”
“This is a critical election. The choices couldn’t be clearer.”
In college football, who was playing the best football at the end of the year? Hmmmm. That would be WVU (Orange Bowl) and, of course, Alabama. So, if we had a play off system in college football, the Mountaineers would probably be national champions this year!
Nine eleven means one thing; nine one one another. Yet both are 911. Both involve danger but one is an attack and the other a rescue. Very spooky.
What can we learn from this 70-33 win?
1. Speed and hard tackling wins. Period.
2. The Big East (may it rest in peace) is a much better conference that folks think.
3. Players who get in the game because of injuries are often better than the “starters” they replace. Remember Steve Slaton and Pat White coming into the Maryland game?
4. Team chemistry is more important than newspaper stories in terms of what’s really going on.
5. WVU could well win a national championship in the next three years.
