WVU’s Defense A No Show Against Oklahoma

This was the 2nd straight year WVU was no match for Oklahoma. In 2016, WVU lost to Oklahoma 28 –  56, and this year the score wasn’t much different for WVU lost 31 – 59. In both games the Sooners scored quickly on almost on every drive. WVU came into this year’s game with a […]

WVU’s Offense Continues To Struggle Against Texas

I was listening live to Holgorsen’s post game interview. What got me was the number of fans blaming back-up QB Chris Chugunov for the loss. Sorry guys, but it was the receivers who dropped the passes and the O-line that didn’t protect. WVU’s offense has struggled since the Baylor game. The receivers dropped pass after […]

For the second time in two consecutive games, it has been WVU’s defense that stepped to secure a win. And for the second time in two weeks, WVU’s offense has been scoreless in the 2nd half. The WVU offense put up no points in the 2nd half against Iowa State nor against K-State. For a […]

WVU’s Defense Secures Win Over Iowa State

Personally, after Iowa State upset TCU last week I didn’t think WVU had a chance in this one after losing to TCU and Oklahoma State. The first half of this one gave me hope, then came the second half, and WVU’s offense couldn’t get out of it’s own way. WVU led this one at half […]

WVU’s Offense Non-Existent In Oklahoma State Loss

Where was the Mountainers offense against the Cowboys? An offense starts with the offensive line.

Holgorsen hasn’t been pleased with the running game since […]

WVU vs Big 12 Officials

Ever since WVU joined the Big 12 in many games every season it apprears that WVU has a second opponent on the field – the officiating crew. I’ve often wondered if the officiating or lack thereof is due to WVU not being located in the midwest, and the officials are trying to punish WVU for […]

WVU’s Lack of Respect Is Glaring

While listening to ESPN last night the announcers stated that they didn’t understand why WVU’s Will Grier wasn’t in the QB conversation, for he is one of the top ranked college QB’s in the nation. Grier is the 6th ranked QB in the nation according to the College Football Statistics (http://www.cfbstats.com/2017/leader/national/player/split01/category02/sort01.html) and according to ProFootball Focus […]
