    Soooo, I'm flippin the channels and am half watching the WVU and OU Tostitos bowl and flip back during halftime and the WVU band is performing. Then my eyes bled. There was a dude, full dressed in satin and barefoot performing as a solo baton twirller.

    Man, I know I'm old and should have a more open perspective and mind but man, if my son came home and said he wanted to be a baton twirller in the band..I dunno...

    Ya but WVU really smoked Oklahoma. I can't believe WVU was considered the underdog.

    So much for Rich Garcia as head coach for WVU - the interim (soon to be full time) head coach did a mighty fine job last night!

    Yep, they spanked OU and just when I was going to point to the Sugar Bowl to what is flawed by the ranking/poll system that would allow a team like Hawaii, even though undefeated, with their schedule into the Top 5 with the likes of GA, LSU, Ohio State, OU...

    ahem, well.

    I saw the baton twirler, too. There was absolutely nothing bad ass about him.

    I go to WVU and he's there pretty much every home game (at least the ones I've been to). Apparently he's one of the top baton twirlers in the nation I've heard. And you are far from the first person to question this...

    Awesome.
    West Virginia f***ed Oklahoma like they were related.

    At least this was just a regular upset though.
    Unlike Georgia having to throttle Hawaii, or USC destroying Illinois.
    Georgia and USC were both playing like #1 ranked football teams at the end of the year, then they are forced to play in slaughter bowls against inferior opponents. Another example of how crappy the BCS system is year after after.
    Playoff.

    My only complaint about USC was their sportsmanship. They played like a bunch of angst ridden teens. All I saw during that game was shoving after plays, obvious and uncalled for **** talking and cheap shots. I was pretty apathetic as to the outcome of that game, but that kind of behavior shouldn't be tolerated in college ball.

    I go to WVU as well, go to all the home games as well, apparently he is one of the top baton twirlers in the world, no joke.

    That guy went to my high school. He got a scholarship for it, too.

    I'm going off on a limb to say that the scholarship was likely for dance.

    I'm not exactly into marching bands but WVU's band is pretty impressive.
