Wow, Noel Devine, simply wow. 17 carries for a career-high 207 yards and a touchdown against the Auburn Tigers' stingy defense, which came into the game ranked 9th nationally in scoring defense. Devine and WVU QB Pat White, 174 yards passing and 3 touchdowns, sparked the Mountaineers to 31 unanswered points against the Tigers. It's about time Devine was let loose. We've all known for years about this kid's talent, as he was a YouTube sensation since his sophomore year in high school.
While WVU coach Bill Stewart got some Devine intervention tonight, it's looking like Auburn might need some Divine Intervention to recover following it's first three-game losing streak since Tommy Tuberville's first season in 1999. Tuberville, too, might require some Divine Intervention if he wants to keep his job. He's been on the hot seat before at Auburn, and no doubt that a three-game losing skid, coupled with offensive ineptitude this season, will put him back on that seat.
Good luck Auburn, and good luck to you too Mr. Tuberville: I'm sure you both will be having nightmares of Noel Devine running wild for the next week, that is until you have to visit Houston Nutt and the Rebels next weekend in Oxford. Let's hope that you don't slip up again, and drop below .500, or else you might be looking at unemployment, Mr. Tuberville, and you'll have plenty of time to watch time-consuming YouTube clips, such as this one:
Sit back and enjoy the highlight that was Noel Devine's high school career.
