Bring on the Podcast with The Smoking Musket’s David Smith

Our old friend from West Virginia tells us why this could finally be the year his Mountaineers beat Kansas State. Or not.

The ‘Cats are headed to Morgantown for their annual beatdown of West Virginia, so we invited friend of the podcast David Smith from The Smoking Musket to give us an idea of what to expect. Unfortunately, he told us the Mountaineers’ 4-0 start might not be all smoke and mirrors, thanks to an excellent quarterback, a solid running back duo, and a fairly effective defense. That’s not to say there aren’t concerns, of course, notably kick return coverage and whether WVU can stop Kansas State’s run game.

We also talked a little about Holgo’s future and those of you who have listened to our podcasts with David before won’t be surprised to learn we got a bit off topic at times. Other subjects included David’s hatred of all things Virginia Tech, wondering what the hell Baylor is thinking, Bruce Weber, and even a brief mention of hockey. David also promised moonshine to any K-State fans brave enough to visit The Smoking Musket tailgate this Saturday (I can recommend this from experience) so if you want to take him up on that offer, just let us know in the comments.

Don’t forget to check out the work of David and others, including their podcast, over at The Smoking Musket. You can also follow them on Twitter at @SmokingMusket or follow David at @smithfire13.
