Carolyn Bailey Lewis is a woman who has been determined to always push herself and to set new standards throughout her career. She has been a pioneer in her field, but it hasn't been easy. While forging her path, as a black woman, Carolyn has had to fight battles against racism, bigotry, and prejudice as well as sexism. Coming from the small town of Bluefield, West Virginia where she attended segregated schools and lived in a segregated neighborhood, Carolyn became the only black woman in her class of journalism students at West Virginia University. Being able to adapt to a “white world” and function as the only person of color took great strength, will, and dexterity. In 1971, Carolyn became the first black woman to graduate from the Perley I Reed School of Journalism, now the Reed College of Media at West Virginia University. She continued her trailblazing in 1993 when she became the first African American woman named to manage a full-service public television station in the continental United States at WNPB-TV in Morgantown. In 1997, she became the Director and General Manager of WOUB Public Media at Ohio University, where she stayed until her retirement. That same year she also became an ordained minister. During her 14 years at WOUB, Carolyn rose nationally in the ranks of public broadcasting. She was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Association of Public Television Stations (APTS), a member of the Board of Directors of the National Education Telecommunications Association (NETA) and Chair of the PBS Advertising and Promotion Advisory Committee. But she wasn't finished. Against all odds and while confined to a wheelchair, she received her Doctor of Philosophy degree in Communications Studies – 36 years after her undergraduate degree from WVU. Most recently, she received the 2020 Medal of Merit for Professional Achievement from Ohio University. Currently, in her retirement Carolyn has authored a book, is the co-founder and chairman of the Dr. Carolyn Foster Bailey Lewis Family Foundation and is the co-founder and CEO of LifeDay Greeting Cards, Inc. Her LifeDay cards celebrate surviving a major life-altering event or monumental moment in life.

The West Virginia football team begins its only bye week of the season with more questions than answers. Saturday's loss at Baylor drops the Mountaineers (2-4, 0-3) into unexpected territory. WVU's promising performance at Oklahoma has been followed up with consecutive losses to Texas Tech and Baylor. The Mountaineer offense has averaged just 20 points in the last two games while the normally reliable defense allowed a season-high 45 points at Baylor. On this episode, the "Guys" look back at Saturday's game and look ahead to possible solutions. Join them Thursday for more football talk and an early look at the upcoming WVU basketball season.

It has been a rough couple of weeks for the West Virginia University football team. The Mountaineers have lost two straight games on last second field goals. On Saturday the (2-3) Mountaineers play at Baylor hoping to snap a road losing streak that has grown to six games dating back to last season. Baylor (4-1), ranked nationally before suffering its first loss last Saturday at No. 12 Oklahoma State. It's a difficult challenge for a Mountaineer team that has been plagued by self-inflicted errors in its three losses. Is this the week, WVU avoids turnovers and penalties? Can West Virginia force Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon to throw his first interception of the season? The "Guys" answer those questions along with providing statistics and tendencies that will likely decide Saturday's game. Join them again Monday for their review of the Mountaineers and Bears.

In the opening take, Lee plays some sound from Alex Grinch and talks about how mad he was after the Kansas State game. Then Grant joins to talk briefly about his terrible food takes before getting more serious about Grinch and the defensive woes (5:40). Is Bijan Robinson the entire Texas offense? How much should we take from the Texas-Arkansas game? How did Sark decide on Hudson Card as the opening day starter over Casey Thompson (23:00)? After looking really good against Arkansas, Rice, and Texas Tech, Casey Thompson had mixed results against TCU. What is the blueprint for OU's defense against the Texas offense (32:00)? Texas has more RBs than just Bijan Robinson. A Texas starter on the O-Line is out for the year, plus we wrap up OU's defense vs the Texas offense (40:45). This Texas defense has a lot of similarities to the defense OU just saw. Texas is not very good against the run and at times the Horns invite teams to run the ball (50:30). Which Spencer Rattler will show up at the Cotton Bowl (59:45)? The guys provide their final thoughts predicitions for OU-Texas (1:04:10). We hit on Justin Harrington reportedly entering the Transfer Portal, and would you want to see Bookie back on the team this year (1:14:10)? We take a look at the Big 12. WVU is at Baylor and TCU travels to Texas Tech. Grant thinks TCU may be bad (1:18:00). Grant's been red hot making picks recently. 9-1 in his last 10. Let's see if he can stay hot this week as the guys pick Michigan State-Rutgers/Arkansas-Ole Miss/Georgia-Auburn/Penn State-Iowa/Michigan-Nebraska (1:23:10).

What in the world happened to the Mountaineers against Texas Tech?That's the question the "Guys" tackle on this episode of Three Guys Before The Game. Saturday's 23-20 loss to Texas Tech has left the Mountaineers (2-3) in an unenviable position with their next two games away from home. Why did WVU start so slowly? How do you correct consistent mistakes? Those are just a few of the questions Brad and Tony discuss as preparation begins for this week's game at Baylor. Join them Thursday for their preview of the Bears and Mountaineers.

Texas Tech's football team has been a thorn to Neal Brown in his two seasons as West Virginia's football coach. The Mountaineers were stunned in Morgantown 38-17 in 2019 and allowed a scoop-and-score fumble in a 34-27 loss last season in Lubbock. Brown and the Mountaineers will try to avenge those losses Saturday to even their Big 12 record at 1-1. Has WVU shaken off last Saturday's heartbreaking loss at Oklahoma? Can Texas Tech rebound after allowing 70 points at Texas ?The "Guys" address those questions and drop a bunch of info-nuggets that will impact this weekend's game.

In the opening take, Grant thinks one big game day decision will likely determine the outcome of OU-Kansas State. Then Lee joins as we begin the show reading some of your "3 Word Reviews" from OU's most recent win over West Virginia. The reviews begin by pointing out OU's lack of rushing success (3:40). More thoughts on OU fans booing Spencer Rattler and the offense (11:05). How "close" is the offense really (22:15)? Gabe Brkic is a great kicker, but man he seems like a weird dude (26:25). A listener wants more Mike Woods and we agree. Plus we want more Marvin Mims touches (30:00). Should we be a little more forgiving with the way Rattler's playing based on his experience level? Plus Lee re-watched last year's K-State game and Rattler looked like a different player (35:15). Lee's operating under the assumption that Skylar Thompson will not play, but Grant is thinking we will see Thompson on Saturday. Lee thinks Will Howard has a chance to give OU problems with his legs and even with his arm. Deuce Vaughn is a problem, plus a little OU D-line talk (41:20). Outside of Vaughn, KSU's skill position players have not done much this year. And will K-State's offense use OU's aggressiveness against them (59:00)? Lee points out a play from the WVU game that shows how everything can fall apart simply by one player not doing their job on defense. Will we see Danny Stutsman (1:04:10)? K-State's defense has a different scheme this season that looks a lot like Iowa State. OU must find a way to run the ball, and will Rattler have time to throw and hit on explosive plays (1:11:30)? We give our final OU-Kansas State thoughts as well as a prediction (1:21:10). Texas goes to TCU this week and it would appear that the bet should be the Frogs plus the points. There's a weird line at West Virginia, and Iowa State's playing Kansas (1:29:00). Grant went 5-0 with his picks last week, Lee was terrible once again. We make picks on Iowa-Maryland/Arkansas-Georgia/Cincinnati-Notre Dame/Ole Miss-Alabama/Baylor-OSU (1:31:25). | Like the show on Facebook: @westofeverest | Follow Grant on Twitter: @GrantBenson25 | Follow Lee on Twitter: @LeeBensonNews9

Brad and Tony also answer listener questions that range from scripted plays to the value of growing San Marzano tomatoes in Jackson County.

The duo disagrees with fans sentiment and deems it uncalled for to chant the name of the backup QB, but also say boos are different than a chant specifically calling for the backup by name. Bad look on national TV and for Sooners recruiting. 17:00 - Brandon states that it is probably a good deal that OU isn't playing at home for a bit. Pressure on him after the WVU game in Norman is high. Alums like Kenneth Murray coming to Rattler's defense. He is more loved than fans think. 19:45 - Recruiting impact of fans chanting and boos? 22:00 - Positives? How about a DOMINANT defensive performance from Alex Grinch's Speed'D' and only allowing 226 TOTAL YARDS from West Virginia and 160-yards passing from WVU QB Seth Doege. Is it time for Sooners fans to give it up to the Sooners' defense? 28:15 - Would you rather the defense be the reason OU is 4-0 or the offense be the reason if you had to pick one? Brandon and Parker both say defense due to the confidence they have in Lincoln Riley and Spencer Rattler to figure it out and get it going this season. 30:30 - Lincoln Riley audio on what his initial thoughts on the game were and obviously the fan chants, defense, where he feels they are as a team heading into the first road game at KSU. Parker and Brandon discuss Riley's thoughts. Parker also talks about how the 2020 version of Oklahoma loses this game and likely the Nebraska game, too. Says other teams might have lost and did so in similar circumstances. 38:00 - Weirdness of college football in 2021. 43:00 - Brandon and Parker name their top 4 teams in Big 12 and Top 5 teams in CFB after four weeks. Brandon also reiterates what he has said from week one, and that is the fact he has felt the WVU, Kansas State, and Texas games were the most important stretch of the OU schedule. 1:05:00 - More weirdness of CFB in 2021 talk. Twilight zone type stuff is going on! Brandon says 2021 CFB "is off its damn rocker." 1:07:00 - Brandon calls the Sooners OL "a cesspool right now." The duo discusses the Oklahoma offensive line play. Spencer Rattler isn't the main issue and they deem OL the root of the problem right now. Parker puts a stat out that is shocking from the game. Andrew Raym is a bright spot. As is Chris Murray most of the time. What has happened to Anton Harrison? Will Wayna Morris get more PT after Saturday night? 1:28:00 - Recruiting talk. Big-time visitors with five-stars on officials and unofficials. How big will October be for Oklahoma on recruiting trail? Closeout of the podcast.

Oklahoma never led West Virginia Saturday night on Owen Field until the clock ran out. That's when Gabe Brkic hit a 30-yard field goal to give the Sooners a 16-13 victory over the Mountaineers. But this game will be remembered or something even more memorable. Fans were boo'ing Spencer Rattler. And others started chanting, "We want Caleb" during the game. How Rattler handles this going forward will define his legacy. But he also needs more help from the offensive line and some faith in the run game from his head coach and playcaller, Lincoln Riley. The defense had a very solid night holding WVU to just 226 total yards of offense. Carey and Eddie are here to break it all down and giving their advice to Rattler on how to handle the boo birds moving forward. It's another edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast.
