The Cats visit Morgantown, WV for the first time (1-1 record against WVU) since
FDR Hoover was president. This time WVU is in the conference, following the Cats road trip east, games with TXT and OSU are at home.
What to expect from these three games. WVU put 70 points up against Clemson, so our D had better be ready and healthy. TXT last year was banged up a wee bit when they played K-State, so it might be a game this year in MHK. OSU is reloading. so the Gundy will have to out coach Bill Snyder.
BurntOrangeNation is predicting WVU as #3 (in the Big XII), TXT #8, and OSU #6 for the 2012 season, while ESPN has WVU #3, TXT #8, and OSU #5. K-State is predicted #4 by BON and #2 by ESPN.
The odds to win the BCS: OU 12/1, WVU 30/1, K-State 50/1, OSU 75/1 (I'm listing OU and K-State again since I found a different site/format for the odds).
For those of you unfamiliar with this, there are 4 polls (Sunday
P.M. publishing) and you get to select the games that you think the Cats will win or lose. There is one poll for the 3 non-conference games and 3 polls for conference games. You are encouraged to attempt to sway others to your belief about the games in the comments section. The polls will not close until August 1st, so remember to vote early and vote comment often or you can follow the Tammany Hall maxim of 'claim everything, concede nothing and if defeated allege fraud.'
Last year the crowd sourcing of games did very well (11-1) on the pre-season polls. The weekly polls did not do as well, tossing a coin is about as accurate.
2011 Regular Season poll results are in the first Crowdsourcing poll.
