If someone just looks at the score, you would think the Mountaineers solidly
beat the Wildcats decisively, but looking at the stats and not knowing the score, you
would think WVU would have lost or least think it was a closer game than recorded.
Villinova had more yards, first downs and more time of possession.
Offensively I would have to say the Mountaineers are one of the top Offenses
in the nation. But the defense is another story it's young and needs to tighten up if the
Mountaineers want to be able to do what they did last year, or even maybe play for it
all. I don't believe they will be able to outscore teams to keep on winning, East Carolina
is hosting WVU next saturday and they just showed the very good Va. Tech team
that they can play football. Sitting here watching South Fla. play tells me the Big East
is going to be competitive this year also.
Jeff Castell better get his defense better prepared, solidify that front line and
cover better in the secondary, or it's going to a long season. If it wasn't for WVU capitalizing
off the turnovers this would have deffinately been a different ball game. Morty Ivy did look
on defense and how about Jock Sanders becoming a playmaker on offense. Makes
the Mountaineer offense very problematic for any defense to defend against.
Still I can't hardly wait for each gameday. It's not going to be a boring season,
that's for sure.
