Lunardi's Logic

Not sure what to make of the 'Zags, this year. They have been very good at times, but never great, and now have to travel across the country to face West Virginia in the Mountaineers' backyard. I fear this is not a good matchup for the Bulldogs, who lose their opening NCAA game for the first time since 2008.
