CALLING THE "BIG" THURSDAY GAME
Since it's the biggest Thursday night game in at least a couple of weeks, I guess it would be inappropriate not to call the West Virginia-Louisville matchup.
It would be easier to call this game if either of these schools had played someone with, you know, talent. Or ability. Or at least an intimidating mascot.
Beating him/her/it is not impressive.
But it is what it is. Louisville started off the year by torching a Kentucky team that ain't great, but isn't horrible. In the process, they lost Michael Bush.
West Virginia blasted a Maryland team that now looks like it's getting it together.
I'll give West Virginia a slight, slight edge, 34-33.
