Practice makes perfect
Updated: March 26, 2015 - 12:32 pm

The old saying, “practice makes perfect,” isn’t only true in sports but can apply in the hunting and fishing world as well. It’s been proven that the more you do something the better you are at it, whatever it may be. When it comes to hunting and fishing, the experience and knowledge gained every trip to the outdoors is more important than anything.

With winter almost over and spring in sight, I’ve been thinking about getting away for a weekend really soon. I love traveling around West Virginia and seeing all the natural beauty it has to offer. There are so many neat places to visit and so much to do that it would take the whole summer to experience it all.

Hot Couch Report: Baylor up next in Big XII Tourney

Say you beat a team, OK State, by 10 points two weeks ago, and beat it at its place. Then you play the same team again at your place, only you’re missing 40 points (out of 73), 9 rebounds and 8 assists because your only 2 seniors who play are hurt. Moreover, you’re trying to get over a shocking loss to conference champ Kansas in Lawrence. Add to this the fact that, this time around, OK State shoots 54% from the floor, 52% from three (11-21), and 82% from the line.

While not mathematically eliminated, WVU men’s hoops, after its unfortunate loss to Baylor on Saturday, need a series of miracles to become league champions. The Mountaineers, 22-7/10-6 (Big 12), must win out, and then, by the HCR’s analysis, Oklahoma must both win and lose both its final 2 games; Kansas needs to lose 4 of its final 2 games; FOX News must lie less than 70% of the time (as opposed to its recent rate of 82%) between now and Sunday; Iowa State must beat Kansas 3 times in the same game; congress must compromise on something, anything; and Seinfeld must cease being funny, even after all these years of being funny.

Hot Couch Report: Unhook the ‘Horns
Posted: February 25, 2015

Whether WVU can ride its recent success, wins over then #8 (AP)/#8 (USA Today) Kansas and #22/#24 OK State, and finally take its number back from Texas will be determined before the posting of this week’s HCR. The Longhorns have snatched WVU’s number from WVU the last 2 seasons. Yes, WVU fans, Texas and its coach Rick Barnes—whose teams are like five cacti planted in the lane; instead of needles, they’ve all sprouted ballpeen hammers—has WVU’s number. The last 4 WVU/UT matchups have seen WVU lose by 11, 17, 17 and 27 points. That Texas led by at least 21 points in each game indicates that initial 11-point win wasn’t as close as the final score suggests.
