It’s amazing what sets off some people when it comes to some other people. It makes me happy to be in my own little cubbyhole and not acting as moral as you must seemingly have to do to work for a major company.

Getting to the important, the on-field stuff, WVU suffered a bad loss to Oklahoma State which stirred again the sentiment against Neal Brown and Jarrett Doege.

I can see criticizing the former since he’s responsible for the team on the field. As for the latter, ripping WVU starting quarterbacks has been a fan tradition since Geno Smith left.

Doege will be gone soon enough. As I cited a few weeks ago, replacing Brown won’t be that easy.

At the risk of invoking my jinx, best wishes to Princeton and Bluefield in the high school football playoffs.

Bluefield suffered as much from COVID-19 protocols as any school has this season but finished strongly to make the playoffs where they will face Point Pleasant this weekend.

Princeton’s season started strongly and they got to fourth in the AAA rankings before a three-game losing streak put them at 13th in the final rankings.

Concord football fans had a bit more to cheer about as the Mountain Lions defeated the Alderson-Broaddus Battlers 23-10 as the defense limited AB to 149 total yards. A win against UNC-Pembroke tomorrow would be a nice way to wrap-up the season.

We start our look at the NBA’s Eastern Conference with a look at its Central Division led by defending NBA Champion Milwaukee. The Bucks took a do-everything big man, a good outside shooter and a solid point guard and mixed them with a good enough supporting cast to win it all. They figure to be in the mix for the title as long as health holds.

The Chicago Bulls reshaped their starting lineup since the trading deadline last year, leaving only Zach Levine in place from opening day last year. Billy Donovan has the team performing well in line with his coaching record.

The Indiana Pacers are the definition of a middling team, not too bad and not too good. There’s not much to add, but in the East they still can make the playoffs.
