WVU fans have mixed feelings, Pirates v. Cardinals go to Game 5

Posted: Updated:

The West Virginia football team has had its share of up and downs this season and their record now sits at 3-3.

The Mountaineers entered Saturday's game off a big win against #11 Oklahoma State. But, the good feelings didn't last long as they fell in an embarrassing 73-42 loss to a ranked Baylor squad.

WVU has a bye week this week but will host #20 Texas Tech on October 19th. As of now, the Red Raiders are undefeated.

Game 4 of the heated playoff series between the Cardinals and the Pirates was Monday.

The Pirates led the best of 5 game series 2-1 entering the game against St. Louis. A strong performance from the Cardinals 22 year old pitcher Michael Wacha who almost pitched a no hitter in their 2-1 win over the Buccos.

In the post-game press conference Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle talked about Wacha's destruction.

"We weren't able to get anyone on to get any motion created. That is some kind of post-season outing for a man in his first post-season game.>

This is the first time the Buccos have made it to the playoffs in 21 years.

While some plays looked a bit too rough, like a confrontation between two players broken up ...

    Day five of the New Orleans Saints training camp at the Greenbrier brought much different temperatures than the Saints are used to at their home site in Louisiana.Long sleeves, long pants, and even some jackets could be spotted at training camp. Not your typical summer day in West Virginia with unseasonal highs for this time of year, and far from what the Saints are used to."When you start to sweat and then the wind blows you're like, oh we aren't in Louisiana are we?
