Ranting And Raving | What West Virginia Fans Are Saying About Their 45-33 Loss To Oklahoma

New, 24 comments
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

One of the great features of all of the SBN sites are the game threads. SBN has been doing them since day one and other news outlets are just now starting to catch up with the trend. The game threads capture the emotions of the game from start to finish, and they sure make our Ranting And Raving posts easier to put together. For this week's comments we perused the game thread at The Smoking Musket to see exactly what WVU fans were saying.

We don't have to look very far down to find the first complaint about the game's officiating.

Refs absolutely murdered any attempt at tempo

No kidding!

"Let em know. Leave no doubt tonight! Leave NO DOUBT Tonight! No doubt! 
They shouldn’t have played the old Gold N’ Blue. NOT THIS NIGHT! NOT THIS NIGHT!" - Bill Stewart

We all thought that Oklahoma's first field goal was a win for the West Virginia defense and they pretty much agreed with us.

Another big 3rd down

TCfromDubVee

Got it Joe!!!

"Let em know. Leave no doubt tonight! Leave NO DOUBT Tonight! No doubt!

Indeed man

We can let em take 3s. And how flustered did knight look with that play before the snap

TCfromDubVee

Flustered, back to back bad throws!

After watching the game I firmly believe that Kevin White is one of the top receivers in the country. WVU fans were calling for him and then they got him.

White must be covered up

Really need to get him involved

Fajotni

easy

CALLED IT!!!

And queue the air raid

JohnRadcliff

YES!!!!!!

It might seem dirty that you're wearing no pants. But it's the only way you'll ever get clean.

Kevin White just burned OU's best corner

Let’s go….

TCfromDubVee

He'll be playing next year on Sundays!

There was also the slow start by Oklahoma's offense that had OU fans worried to start the game but West Virginia fans were loving it.

Knight is rattled, keep getting on his BUTT!

More than that, I think the sooner offense is rattled

After the Sooners scored on the reverse pass from Durron Neal to Trevor Knight the game began to heat up and so did the message boards. Of couse, no one likes it when their team gives up a score on a trick play.

Some BS trickery!

"Let em know. Leave no doubt tonight! Leave NO DOUBT Tonight! No doubt! 
They shouldn’t have played the old Gold N’ Blue. NOT THIS NIGHT! NOT THIS NIGHT!" - Bill Stewart

They had to break it out in the first half of their first conference game

They’re worried already

Of course a botches onside kick only added to their line of thinking that OU was scared.

More shenanigans

Okay it’s borderline scared at the moment

TCfromDubVee

No borderline about it.

They are!

Special Teams

Deforest must go

TCfromDubVee

For supposedly being a ST expert he sucks.

Deforest

I haven’t seen anything he can coach!

Deforestation.....

Its a good thing.

Then the second half rolled around and Samaje Perine became the story of the game.

Perine will be playing on Sundays good lord.

"Let em know. Leave no doubt tonight! Leave NO DOUBT Tonight! No doubt! 
They shouldn’t have played the old Gold N’ Blue. NOT THIS NIGHT! NOT THIS NIGHT!" - Bill Stewart

Perine is just murder

The crime scene is the WVU defense linebacker core.

We got no answer.

"Let em know. Leave no doubt tonight! Leave NO DOUBT Tonight! No doubt! 
They shouldn’t have played the old Gold N’ Blue. NOT THIS NIGHT! NOT THIS NIGHT!" - Bill Stewart

Well not over

But that’s a big blow to absorb. And even if they had ford, I’m not sure he does better. Perine’s size is murdering us. They got a stable of backs though.

TCfromDubVee

Yep samething in the Bama game...

Dear lord we gotta put up with 2 more years of that kid Perine?

/need more beer

"It's not a sin to get knocked down; it's a sin to stay down." Carl Brashear, USN

Done

And good lord, ford? Ford who? Perine from the home state of the twilight zone. I only hope OU closed the gate after the left.

Finally the night/thread ended with a little love for the Sooners.

Well the trend from last year continues

OU… Most likely still better than Bama
