Horns down !
Just this once, we'll forgive the Jackie Sherrill connections between hated Pitt and Texas A&M, and align ourselves with our Aggie pals in College Station, if only to extend a hearty Horns Down to Texas.
We've been doing some research at Chez HQ and found that nobody in the NCAA's Sweet 16 has played more games against fellow Sweet 16 teams than WVU. And nobody except for UConn has more than WVU's four wins against that group.
Here's the list:
WVU (7) is 4-3, wins over Nova, Gtown (2) and UCLA, losses to Texas, LSU and UConn
UCONN (6) is 5-1, wins over Gonzaga, LSU, Gtown, WVU and Nova, loss to Nova.
