An addition to the most recent BlogPoll Roundtable is brought to us by Sunday Morning Quarterback.
What gridiron memory sears you so deeply, down to your appropriately-colored veins, that a simple acknowledgement, a "sorry" from the proper source - even if it didn't change the outcome - would lift a burden and cleanse a scarred corner of the soul? What injustice do you still carry, and want officially recognized?
I can't point to a blown call that cost us the game, at least not to the degree that Oklahoma is feeling right now. Rather, I would take it in another direction. Over the years, West Virginia fans have felt like they are constantly getting screwed by the national media, or to put it better, disrespected. While there are still doubters out there, for the most part that "apology" has been issued in the form of praise this year. Just look at any of the MSM. You can usually find something about WVU in there. One example is Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post. He's keeping an eye on the Mountaineers this year. And he is even reporting on a rap song devoted to the Mountaineers in his blog today. I'm not a super big fan of the song. I'm more of an Alt-Rock type. But hey, we're getting noticed.
Thanks for the ad-on SMQ!
