With the recent news that Alabama will open the 2014 season against West Virginia in Atlanta, and today's announcement that the SEC and Big 12 have formed a bowl partnership in the unlikely event that neither has a conference champion in the upcoming playoffs, we thought it would be a good idea to chat with our friends over at SBN's WVU blog The Smoking Musket. They sent us over some questions and rather than doing the boring old blogger e-mail Q&A, Mr. WVUIE97 joined me for a nice hour(ish) long chat about the game, scheduling philosophies, recruiting trends, blue and gold houndstooth pants, #LOLMIZZOU, and whether or not West Virginia is really "the south." You can direct download the mp3 here, or listen with the handy widget below. Big thanks to I.E. for coming on and sharing the 'Eer perspective.
