I'm hoping Louisville wins but should be a good game either way. And it's a big opportunity for both teams, especially WVU, to show they belong among the top teams.

i actually thought louisville played pretty good defense prior to this game. Hadnt seen WV though

they both have good defenses, it's just that the offenses are so overpowering.

I wouldn't have gone for it either. Going for 2 this early is a death wish, especially in a game with so much scoring.

for the reason you pointed out regarding the defenses I thought they might. WV doesnt seem able to stop Louisville. You're basically asking them to stop Louisville twice this way

11-02-2006, 11:24 PM
I wouldn't have gone for it either. Going for 2 this early is a death wish, especially in a game with so much scoring.

10 point lead isnt all that much different from a 9 point lead. So IMO you go for it to make it a one score game.

10 point lead isnt all that much different from a 9 point lead. So IMO you go for it to make it a one score game.It sure is with a whole quarter to play and so much scoring obviously left.

Adamprez, it's different though. The defenses are definitely being exposed, but most of it has been in a wide open field, and it's in the context of a whole game. Up tight and with only one play is far too big a gamble this early on.

Going for 2 in the 3rd quarter is never a good idea, especially in a shootout.

Pennington's Rocket Arm
11-02-2006, 11:29 PM

In general I agree with you. I wouldve broken the rule just cause of the feel of the game but the textbook play is kicking the extra point

I'm just not sold that their offense is impossible to stop against a great defense. UM is a joke this year; they also gave up 30 to Ga Tech (whose offense is CJ and not much else). They have zero character, and just gave up once they got behind on the road. UL put 28 w/ Brohm on the road against Syracuse, who's a bigger joke. UL is great, but I just really want to see them against a top defense.

C-A-R-D-S! CARDS! This game was AWESOME. I was on the edge of my seat all night. I can't wait to see how they look against Ohio State in Arizona... I mean Rutgers. If Brohm stays and Bush returns, next season will be brutal.

Everytime Louisville beats someone, they're suddenly "not that good" or "so and so is better." WVU is a very, very good team. Miami was ranked when Louisville beat them. They haven't lost at home in THREE YEARS! Oh, and by the way... Louisville lost their superstar running back in week 1. GIVE THE VILLE SOME RESPECT!

LouPhinFan
11-03-2006, 01:24 AM
Man oh man what a game. Here's a few observations:

1. WVU is an excellent offensive football team. Its one thing for teams to prepare for U of L with all the things they do on offense. Its another thing to prepare for WVU who you know is going to run White and Slaton. BUT YOU STILL CAN'T STOP THEM! Their defense needs some work. That 3-3-5 defense doesn't work against really good teams.

2. Brohm still isn't 100% throwing the ball. Some of his passes looked funny and he wasn't hitting receivers in stride like he usually does. I'm thinking that thumb injury isn't going to fully heal until the offseason. They're just telling everyone "its almost 100%" as a bluff.

3. Next year there won't be a defensive back in the country that can cover Uruttia. B E A S T

4. U of L's defense played well tonight except for all those missed tackles. I know they gave up points and yards, but trust me WVU's offense would give Michigan and OSU fits as well. They forced the turnovers when the needed to, got a TD, and kept WVU's return game in check.

5. I don't want to hear any more from those people who say that U of L shouldn't be in the NC game because the Big East is weak. No one said anything back in the day when Nebraska and Oklahoma ran roughshod over the Big 12 and still played the NC game.

Now comes Rutgers. Its going to be a good game. Rutger's defense is pretty good, but I think U of L's offense is better. I'll say U of L 33 Rutgers 14.

Good luck to the Moutaineers for the rest of the year. I hope Slaton is ok. Its going to be another barn burner next year!!

GO CARDS!!

Yes, but this is big for the Big East who was bascilly told by the BCS to prove they belong to keep the automatic bid two years ago.

How sad have they become, they play this weekend with not a peep about them.

Yep, last year L'Ville blew out Rutgers.

One other thing that may help Rutgers is the running game, Wv ran all over them, so Rice and Leonard should do well. And Rutgers is one of the Top sack teams on defense, so it could be a real interesting game.

Bumpus
11-03-2006, 11:08 AM
Well ... we were able to run all over the Cards as advertised. The problem is we picked the absolute worst time (if there ever is a good time) to come down with a case of "fumble-itis"

I'm not suprised at all that our secondary was exposed, but I really believed that we would simply outscore Louisville.

Bottom line: You simply cannot lose the turnover and special teams battles on the road against a good team.

Good luck to the Cardinals, I'll be pulling for you.
