Yeah I read that David Isreal is the back-up, but I don't know if they'll burn his redshirt. **** it let Sills play and triple option their ass to death GT style.

Did you guys watch DH's post-game? He was PISSED about it. He says it is "on him" and Grier running the ball from the 1 on 2nd and goal will be fixed. He pointed to a few things and insisted they will get fixed. I know we've heard it before...only time will tell. At least he got the PISSED part right.


He seemed very very annoyed with Spavital in that presser. The thing is if Grier handed it off, Crawford was in the end zone untouched, I wonder if it was a read-option and he decided to keep it, but either way, pretty annoying stuff there. I agree with everyone else, if he scored, and nothing bad happened, we wouldn't be bitching about it, but it's just unfortunate that this happened.

Might be the first WVU game I skip in over 5 years.

Well said Sane, I believe you're 100% right too, though I don't think it's a never thing, I genuinely believe we can catch lightning in a bottle every 10 years or so, if things align perfectly, meaning I do believe we have a chance to win the Big 12, we just realistically shouldn't expect to be winning it every year. We don't have the resources or firepower, but it shouldn't take us away from cheering on this team every single Saturday, and enjoying the ride. College football is fun, we shouldn't get pissed about things outside our control.

Got an email earlier from 247sports or something that said breaking news, in state star commits to mountaineers. Anyone have any idea who this is? I'm not an insider, so i couldn't read it. Anyone know?

Edit: I figured it out, it's Martinsburg DL Tavis Lee. He's going to play LB at WVU, unless he gets a lot bigger. That's the plan, anyways.


The thoughts around are that he red-shirts and get's some weight on his bones and plays that hybrid edge rusher a-la Bruce Irvin. He's a project commitment, but I'm happy with it. We need to keep our in-state talent that can play at the next level, and it seems that we've been doing a lot better job with that lately. Gotta tip my hat to Dana, him and staff have been hitting the recruiting trail pretty damn hard.

We're highly likely to have 3-1000 yard receivers this year.

Current yards with 3 to play (including bowl game)

Jennings: 938 yards (talk about the unsung hero of the team, he's #3 in the country with 8.2 receptions per game)

White: 907 yards

Sills: 856 yards


If Crawford breaks 1,000, we'll be the first P5 team with a 3,000 yard passer, 3 1,000 yard receivers, and 1 1,000 yard rusher...

They have the lines to control this game, but I think we find a way to make more good decisions than bad decisions and come out on top.

I'm hoping Spav takes that as a sign to listen to Holgy tbh. Holgorsen has already gone through this and figured it out..

Probably this stuff

Had a physical therapist use it on me a few years ago. In my situation, I decided it didn’t do much - & was probably an attempt to inspire some ‘psychological’ healing.


It actually also helps to prevent turf burn, so for the scrambles he has and when he slides a little awkward or something like that he doesn't tear up his arms.


As for the game, as much as a **** show it was, I never really felt we were in a position to lose which is such a difference than normally. I do feel terrible for Grier though, it feels like 7 of his interceptions this year weren't his fault. Man can't catch a break in that category. Overall, we won, and we're on to the next week, let's grab another win and momentum into the final stretch. Texas has the bodies, but hopefully their offense is as anemic as Kansas State's was today.


Good point. That extra layer would be helpful vs turf slides.


Haha medical school is obviously paying off!!

This one is going to be an ugly one in which I predict I will be drinking a lot and cursing a lot at my TV. Praying we pull it out

I'm sorry, but anything less than a 9 win season isn't awesome. 8 at the least. Just my opinion though.


I agree that we should hit 8, but this season in the Big 12 has been a bit of a head scratcher, a lot of teams are not who we thought they were. Kansas State is disciplined, the weather conditions don't favor us, but I still think we have the roster to win this game. Hopefully Spav utilizes some short slants, and what not, rather than Grier bombing the ball down the field 50 yards all the time. I'd love to see us chip away and keep the offense on the field a little longer with a depleted defense.

Yeah, you're probably right. Heaven forbid we have members of a highly successful past team standing on the sidelines during a game. It could give a lot of these players a serious inferiority complex and might allow the networks to talk about the past success of WVU football.

I seriously doubt Dana is that insecure that he can't have past players on the sidelines during a game. After listening to the podcast, it sounds like Pat and Steve are saying this is the general consensus among past players visiting WVU. I would venture to guess it goes well above Dana...or just piss-poor planning on whomever is inviting the players to campus...something Dana would have nothing to do with.


I agree with the sentiments about Dana, he definitely doesn't seem like the type to care if they are on the sidelines. Dana's already added to the program, and I'm sure he would recognize how much Pat and Steve meant to us, I would be shocked to learn it was his doing. Pretty surprising though, I mean, I assumed that Pat and Steve would be treated like Gods at Milan Puskar for what they did for this program, and those magical few years, someone in the athletic department needs to figure this out. History is important, gives the current guys something to clutch on to, to make their time at WVU mean something more, something special. Yes, you don't want to live in the past, but you definitely must appreciate things like that.

I don't really know how to feel, I'm hoping we get some of our defense back in practice this week, and good to go for Saturday, especially Toyus Avery, need all the secondary help we can get. I think we're better talent wise, but Synder just knows how to beat us, and even though we got them last year, playing in Manhattan is always intimidating. I'm sure Grier will be sharp as usual, just need to see if a depleted defense can hold up, and if our run blocking can create some holes for Crawford.

True, but we found a way to get it going against Iowa State and they are very similar teams with fundamentally sound defenses so here's to hoping they keep it going.


I doubt K-State only brings a 3 man front though.

This was a horrible, frustrating game for Grier. He didn't do great, but he certainly has handled it better than others (Howard springs to mind). I don't know that I would be ready to brand him as NOT a leader of this offense. Just a frustrating day...


I didn't say he was not a leader. I said I don't see him as a great leader. He has talents that Howard doesnt poses. However, I have yet to see him have the offense rally around him like Howard was able to do. Something is missing in that aspect, and our offense plays like crap when it happens, or doesnt happen. Maybe it is more of an inconsistency.


Skyler Howard played on teams that had (arguably) more firepower. A "C" QB on a "B+" offense if you will. Will Grier does not have that luxury.
Crawford, McKoy and Pettaway are very good backs who have figured out over 8 weeks that the running is tough against good teams. I think a big part of Crawford's reduced production is the beating he has taken.
David Sills is a creation made by Will Grier - he is a good possession wr but belongs in the slot. Period - NOT ENOUGH SPEED.
Ditto White and Jennings.
Simms, our one elite speed guy can't find motivation to try all game.
Did you not see all of the shots of how frustrated Grier became today? He's figured out what he's working with...a decent but not great offense. Skyler Howard would've blown 5 head gaskets by now and flipped off everyone on offense and chaos would abound in Morgantown. He was a basketcase. How many times did you see Orlosky go nose-to-nose with him to shut him up? Rally around him? They hated him but he was all we had...


Well I can agree with the fact that the offensive line isn't better at run blocking this season. The pass blocking doesn't seem to be any worse though. Our wide receiving group is on par with the last couple seasons. There were plenty of good passes dropped then too. Grier has a lot more touch on his passes, which has helped make Sills the receiver he is. However I see a lot of catches that are having to be made behind the body. The only reason Simms had a catch and run for a TD was because he had to stop and readjust to a ball thrown well off his stride, which caused the defender to fall down. In that same vein, if it wasn't for Sills ability to catch balls thrown behind him, Grier wouldn't have quite the numbers he has today. If I see Grier hit 3 passes 20 yards out next week where the receivers don't have to break stride to catch the ball, I will post an apology to him in this thread.

It's not that I don't think Grier is good. I am glad he came to WVU. I'm just tired of th BS hype that everyone gives him. I was believing it for a while.



I came back to apologize to Grier. He has hit some awesome passes in the first half. Above that he had totally played like the leader of this offense.


Takes a big man to own up to his mistakes. Grier was incredible yesterday, wish we would have let him loose a little more. I'm really hoping he stays one more year.
