Football notes from the preps to the pros:
An MRI didn't reveal any breaks, but did show some damage that doctors want to repair now.
No word yet on how long he will be out of action.
The result of the poll: 25 percent, 75 percent no.
The result of the games? Not only did Parkersburg South, Parkersburg High, Parkersburg Catholic and Williamstown win, but they all won by double-digit amounts.
Want some even better news? This is the week Catholic accepts a forfeit from Trinity (who dropped football after having a contract to play the Crusaders), while South is at Athens, PHS is at Woodrow Wilson and Williamstown is at Calhoun County. Looks like another sweep is in store.
Even though WVU is 3-0, it still has more than its share of skeptics, including many in its fan base. Those skeptics will go away if the Mountaineers win their nationally-televised game at LSU this Saturday night (and Sunday morning.) Kickoff isn't until 9 p.m., meaning this game won't end until well after midnight.
It's West Virginia's biggest test of the season. Not only it is against an undefeated SEC opponent, but it's the Mountaineers' first out-of-state road trip and the late start means sitting around a motel room in a strange town all day, then having to perform at 9 p.m. Add in WVU's mounting injuries and there is a great deal to overcome.
Luck looked amazing in his team's 68-24 dismantling of Wake Forest. He stands 6-foot-5 and he's not only a great passer, but he also ran 50 yards for a score. This week, the Cardinal visit Notre Dame.
