Not much for today, since I have a column going up on later. A cool thing I came across when doing research for it was a database of boxscores for every game West Virginia has ever played. It’s an interesting page if you ever want to see the evolution of the box score. I know it seems far-fetched that there will ever be a possession count in the official box, but back in 1904, my great-grandpappy was looking forward to the day when field goal attempts would be tracked.
