West Virginia climbs in the national polls

Welcome, By-Godders, to The Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU’s best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor, and daily distractions.


A 2-0 week with wins over TCU and Kansas State allowed West Virginia to climb four spots in the week’s Associated Press poll to #6. The Mountaineers also moved up eight spots in the coaches’ poll to #5. WVU is currently projected as a #2 seed for the NCAA Tournament in Joe Lunardi’s ESPN Bracketology and with as many as six games to possibly play before selection Sunday, there is potential for the team to jump even higher.
