Daily Discussion: Game Weather


As you all know, Hurricane Sandy had it's way with the east coast over the past couple of days.  What you may not know since nobody pays attention to that part of the world, is that the state of West Virginia got pounded by snow earlier this week.  I'm not positive how nasty the weather got in Morgantown, but I do know that snow fell there and it's still cold and wet there and will stay that way for a couple more days.  What that means is that the field on Saturday will undoubtedly not be ideal conditions for football, but which team does that benefit?  WVU and their high powered offense love to throw it all around the yard, but if the weather is still dicey does that play right into the Frogs' hands?  Our strength is our run defense and intermediate passing attack, so maybe a little rough weather would be a good thing.  It's not looking like it will be too terrible, but would you prefer to see a sloppy track or have everything dried and sunny come game time?  Knowing TCU's propensity to cough the ball up, maybe a dry field (and football) would be a good thing, but the last time a pass happy team played TCU on a messy day they picked SMU off 5 times.  So let's hear it- what do you want from Saturday weather-wise?  Do you even think the remnants of HurricaneSuperstorm Sandy will make any difference Saturday?  This is our team's first trip anywhere further than Kansas as well, so do you think the travel will get to us?  Let me know what you think.

It is in the 40s it will be in the 40s tomorrow, by game time it will be upper 40s. It is not projected to rain Saturday so their turf should be dry. It is just now November so the ground is still warm what snow Morgantown got will be long gone from the playing surface. From what I have heard the heavy snow was in the Eastern part of the state.

All that to say weather should be a non-factor.

My buddy and I will be there. Any other Spitblooders going?

We're packing the same good karma we took to Boise last year, and the Rose Bowl the season before that.
