Country roads, take me home ...

BETWEEN DALLAS AND MORGANTOWN, W. Va. -- I'm on the way to my first-ever visit to West Virginia today, and I'm pretty excited. I'll be there through Thursday, and in the meantime, I'll get plenty of time with the Big 12's newest member and time for a few other things, too.

(Ahem, pepperoni rolls ... )

I've got The Big 12 Guide to West Virginia's Home Turf bookmarked for my trip, and I'll be checking out the sights, sounds and eats during my trip, as you all recommended.

I'll get some time with the Mountaineer coaches and players, and no doubt, I have more to learn about these guys than any other team in the Big 12. I'm sure when I get back, we'll be ready to roll for the fall on the blog.

Until then, country roads, take me home to the place I belong.
