WVU is making short work of refuting point #10 in my previous post, which alludes to their unworthiness as BCS competitors. Watching the Nokia Sugar Bowl with foot firmly in beak, this Turkey hereby apologizes to the entire State of West Virginia, whose Mountaineers have surged to a 21–0 first quarter lead over the discombobulated Georgia Bulldogs. Georgia can certainly recover their composure and win this game but no matter which way it goes The Turkey was wrong to marginalize the Mountaineers.
Ya gotta love the unpredictability of the NCAA Division I-A post-season!
Georgia fans probably had been grousing along the same lines as were some Nittany Lions fans I know—that the Mountaineers (or in the case of the Lion fans, the Florida State Seminoles) were unworthy opposition. Thus, let this be a lesson: Beware the overconfidence that perceived superiority brings, and beware a scrappy, supposedly overmatched opponent with something to prove!
