This was so close to being a better season for the West Virginia Mountaineers and their fans.
With the Mountaineers needing to beat the Kansas Jayhawks to even become bowl eligible, it’s fair to wonder what this season could have been had the Mountaineers managed to win any of the three games they lost by six or fewer points.
The Maryland Terrapins, Oklahoma Sooners, and Texas Tech Red Raiders all managed to escape games against West Virginia with narrow wins. If the Mountaineers managed to win some combination there, this season is a lot better.
But, that’s all in the past. The Mountaineers are now looking at bowl season. Where might they end up this year?West Virginia bowl projections: Mountaineers vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights in Guaranteed Rate Bowl
According to the latest projections from Brett McMurphy of the Action Network, the Mountaineers could end up playing against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl, which takes place Tuesday, Dec. 28 in Phoenix, Arizona.
It’d be a pretty big road trip for any West Virginia or Rutgers fans who hope to support their favorite team.
This also isn’t the sort of bowl game some West Virginia fans may have been hoping for when the season started. The Mountaineers haven’t had much fun as they’ve been working to rebuild under Neal Brown. But a bowl game and the corresponding extra bowl practices are beneficial for any program that is building. Brown’s team could certainly benefit from some extra reps.Next:30 bucket list items for college football fans

Judge rules teenager who committed Loudoun sexual assaults won’t have to register as sex offender
A Virginia judge ruled Thursday that the male high school student who committed at least two high-profile sexual assaults at two Loudoun County high schools will not be required to register as a sex offender.
Loudoun County Judge Pamela Brooks granted the teenager’s defense team’s request to drop the lifetime sex offender registration from his sentence in a hearing Thursday that drew sharp condemnation from one of the victims' parents.
The teenager had been sentenced to a “locked residential program” at a residential psychiatric facility earlier this month and a lifetime on the sex offender registry. But Thursday’s decision removed the latter requirement.

In a statement published on Twitter by WJLA reporter Scott Smith, the father of one of the victims said he and his wife “are not just heartbroken about today’s ruling, we are quite frankly mad at how the justice system and Loudoun Commonwealth’s attorney has let down both our daughter, as well as the other victims of his predatory behavior.”

The assault of Smith’s daughter occurred in the women’s bathroom at Stone Bridge High School in Loudoun County. The perpetrator was wearing a skirt when the assault occurred and was allowed to transfer to a different high school, where he committed a second assault.
The handling of the two assaults led to accusations that the school board covered up the assaults while working to pass a transgender bathroom policy. New Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares announced that his office would be investigating the district hours after he was sworn in.
Smith brought the sexual assault of his daughter to national headlines when he was arrested at a Loudoun County School Board meeting for engaging in a scuffle with law enforcement. He says a woman approached him to tell him she didn’t believe his daughter had been raped, precipitating the struggle.
