Wow. That's pretty much all I can say. It's been 3 and a half days since it all went down and I still can't believe it. Dana Holgorsen had HIS Mountaineers prepared to perfection.
I was weary. Sports nation expected Clemson to win. Commentators like Kirk Herbstreit and Mark May were dogging us. We had a big task to conquer.
Then it happened. They played the game.
Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown.
That's right... ten of them. All for WVU... 70 frickin' points!
The game was tight until we scored this touchdown....
That one will go down in history. Darwin Cook will be mentioned with guys like Phil Brady (WVU Punter who faked a punt and picked up a huge first down to secure a Sugar Bowl victory), Wes Ours (WVU fullback who had an amazing catch and run in the 2000 Music City Bowl that sent Don Nehlen out a winner) and Owen Schmitt (WVU fullback who gave perhaps the most inspiring television interview in Mountaineer history after WVU destroyed Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl). Yep. Darwin Cook's play was that huge. It destroyed the hearts of Clemson players and fans alike.
It will be remember for another reason... he tackled "Obie..." the Orange Bowl mascot after he scored.
Here's video of the incident...
As it turns out, the person inside the suit was a young lady. Darwin didn't know that until after the game when he was informed by a WVU reporter.
Glad to see he said his apologies.
What an awesome night, though. As I'm typing this right now, I still can't believe it.
