HERTZEL COLUMN: WVU dashing to New York for bowl game

MORGANTOWN — It is Christmas Eve, the most wonderful time of year.

Family and friends, gifts and prayers, and Christmas carols being sung by the fire.

These are time tested songs, songs of love for the season, for each other.

An so it is that this Christmas Eve we bring you a songbook of new lyrics for Christmas songs to help you celebrate your Mountaineer Christmas:

Jingle Bells

Dashing to the show

To see the Mountaineers play

Watching Geno throw

Laughing all the way

Tavon takes the ball

Making someone miss

What fun it is to rock and roll

In a New York City bowl.

Ohhhhhh…

Jingle bells, jersey sells,

Jingle all the way.

Oh what fun it is to ride

The MTA today

Hey

Jingle bells, jersey sells,

Jingle all the way.

Oh what fun it is to ride

The MTA today

The Christmas Song, tailgate version

Hot dogs roasting on an open grill

Bud Lite nipping at your nose

Football scores coming over the wire

And folks wearing WVU clothes

Everybody knows a touchdown and a field goal kick

Help to cover today’s spread

Mountaineers, make the Orange sick

With nothing more to be said.

They know that Stedman’s on his way

Keeping tacklers all at bay

And every mother’s child is gonna spy

Watching Bailey, with the football, run on by

And so I’m drawing up some simple plays

For Dana Holgorsen to run

Although it’s been tried different times, different ways

Nehlen’s draw play is still fun.

Santa Claus is coming to (Morgan)town

You better watch out

You better learn to fly

The fans will all shout

I’m telling you why

Aaric Murray’s coming to town

He’s making a fist

Swinging it twice

Through the defenses

He will slice

Aaric Murray’s coming to town

He sees them when they’re creeping

He knows if it’s a zone,

He’s gonna leave them weeping

For a basket he will own.

You better watch out

You better learn to fly

The fans will all shout

I’m telling you why

Aaric Murray’s coming to town

Aaric Murray’s coming to town

  • Were Bowlsby’s fears about college athletics’ future justified?

    I have never met or even talked to Bob Bowlsby, commissioner of the Big 12 Conference.
    But I did read a lengthy story on his 45-minute address to reporters last week on Media Day in Dallas, Texas. Among other things, Bowlsby forecast a startling change threatening the existence of intercollegiate athletics as we have known for these many, many years.

  • HERTZEL COLUMN: Big 12 provides plenty of optimism

    This past week the Big 12 held its annual media gathering in Dallas and served up a heaping portion of optimism for the 2014 season that is now upon us, West Virginia University opening its preseason practices on Thursday.
    This is a time of year when no one has lost a game, not even Charlie Weis at Kansas, and it’s a time of year when opinions are more plentiful than tattoos in an NFL locker room.

  • HERTZEL COLUMN: WVU needs White to follow in former receivers’ footsteps

    A year ago Clint Trickett took a lot of grief as the once potent West Virginia offense came unraveled, but there is more that than meets the eye.
    The criticism was not unfounded, of course, although behind each incomplete pass there was the pain Trickett was suffering through to throw it, his rotator cuff in need of surgery.

  • FURFARI COLUMN: Wyant talks about ‘Pappy’ Lewis and other items of interest

    I saved some other interesting observations from the recent interview with Fred Wyant which you may find worth reading.
    He believes a college football coach ought to recruit a quarterback he wants, give him some help, then turn virtually everything over to him and let him go.
