In THIS case, the refs were right. Bad technique cost us the interception, not the refs

Oh really what about it being a tough catch?

Proper technique and keeping your eye on the ball turns it into a routine catch.

Damn guys. What the hell? In our two losses it took; in both games monumental punting from the other team, questionable calls from officiating, a dropped touchdown pass with 2 seconds left, and a terrible pass interference during the last drive, to lose by one score against two top ~15 opponents. And that means we will win 4-6 games?? Are we watching the same team?


Couldn't agree more. It's one thing to have a mindset of "we were the better/we should have won that one", but I don't understand writing off the season. We will be in every game this season & win the majority. I get special teams has been horrendous, but we have made strides as whole. Not to mention that defense everyone was so quick to write off forced TCU into 7 punts. While their "elite" defense only forced 5 punts on WVU all while putting up over 500 yards. Football's a 3 phase sport & you must be solid in all three to come up with big wins. Instead of being so quick to write off the season, coaches & team try supporting them with the same passion you have after a win!

Geez...all our good guys need to do is show up and win. I, for one, will always be a Mountaineer. We're West Virginia, for God's sake. Work it! Win!

I'm in no way, shape or form ready to write this season off.

We are good...and getting better.
We have a young team in many positions.
We lack the maturity and "comfort" of playing to win.
Our guys are young enough that they are focusing on not screwing up and blowing an assignment. THAT is why big plays at crucial times are missing.
This will come as this bunch "matures" - and we have a lot of maturing to do. I've never seen so many redshirt freshmen and sophomores getting into the starting line-up.
THIS season is not lost...8-4 (+/- 1 win)is attainable.
AND...
Our future looks pretty damn bright for the next couple of seasons too.

I think WVU is likely more talented this year than in years past. The one thing lacking is experience, especially in the system. We only have 12 players in the offensive and defensive 2-deep who have more than 2 years' experience playing at WVU. That is barely over one quarter of the two-deep. Consider, with years playing at WVU in parentheses:

Off. Backfield: Grier (1), Chugunov (2), Crawford (2), McKoy (2), Wellman (4), Wesco (2); total - 13 (lost 6 from last year in Howard and Shell)

Receivers: White (3), Jennings (3), Simms (2), Sills (2), Roberson (1), Rogers (3); total - 14 (lost 11 from last year in Gibson, Mathis, and Shorts)

O-Line: Cajuste (2 - I won't count a full season for half a quarter against Missouri), Bosch (3), Jones (2), Sills (1), McKivitz (2), Wickline (1), Lingafelter (4), Raulerson (1), Hardy (1), Behrndt (1); total - 18 (lost 15 from last year in Orlosky, Pankey, Matteo, and Lazard)

Def. Line: Donahue (2), McDougle (1), Shuler (2), Rose (1), Pegues (2), Lewis (4); total - 12 (lost 12 from last year in Nwachukwu, Brown, and Howard)

Linebackers: Benton (4), Preston (4), Long (2), Tonkery (1), Qualls (1), Christian (4); total - 16 (lost 8 from last year in Arndt and Walters)

DBs: Robinson (1), Daniels (2), Askew-Henry (3), Avery (2), White (2), Bailey (1), Battle (2), Stewart (2), Gross (4), Pitts (1); total - 20 (lost 16 from last year in Douglas, Kyremeh, Tyler, Harper, Fleming, Crawford)

The 2-deep on D is on average well under 2 years in the system. The 2-deep on O is very slightly above 2 years in the system.

There is no substitute for experience when these guys are 18,19, 20 years old.

I`m not ready to write this season off, But next year, if WG stays in place, we are playoff bound!!!! It took bad officiating and some luck for those two teams to beat us.What this team needs to do is find away to finish in the red zone to compensate the bad calls we get. If we`re 14 to 21 ahead the bad officiating wont hurt.

I wonder how much db's work on proper sideline interception technique. Wide receivers probably plenty of sideline body control catching technique work, db's I'm guessing not so much. Sounds like a cottage industry.

Tired of your corner backs exercising poor sideline interception body control and hand control techniques? Well, you're not alone. Come on down to Mike's Football World where we have all the latest sideline interception technique training methods you can stand. There's the one hand, tip toe, Beckham, the Fitzgerald 360, the Nat Moore helicopter, the Steven Smith foot drag and many many more. If you act now, we'll even throw in two pints of Belitnikof stickem at no extra charge. That's right, all of this AND two pints of Belinikof stickem for one low price. BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! If you act now, we'll throw in the never before seen video "How to make your DB catch like a wide receiver" for free. This video that has been rumored to exist for decades, has been unearthed, and now it's yours as part of this once in a lifetime offer!

For millennia, fans and coaches alike have uttered those fateful words "I guess if he could catch the ball, he'd be a wide receiver", whenever their DB dropped an obvious interception. This ground breaking video "How to make your DB catch like a wide receiver" will change everything you ever thought you knew about the game of football and turn it on its head. AND if you act now, for a limited time only, you will get our world famous "The refs fucked us" tee shirt and our "Wait til next year" talking bobblehead. Just punch it in the face and it says "Wait til next year" in 47 different languages. The perfect gift for your weird soccer fan uncle, Jesus, from Ecuador.

And just when you thought this deal couldn't get any better, for today only, we are unloading the very last remaining few boxes of our warehouse collection of 2007, Dave Wannstedt, "Bubble Screen Wat?" Singing Mustaches for the WVU fan who truly hates himself. These mustaches are lightly coated in powdered sugar from New Orleans' famous Cafe Du Monde and are not found in stores.

Having possession with one foot in bounds is no longer a catch in college? Since when? He secured the ball before his right foot came down out of bounds. And there clearly wasn't any way you could overturn it in the replay because, obviously, he had possession with a foot in bounds. It was simply Big 12 protecting it's only potential playoff team.

This post is outstanding I nominate it for "the funniest WMITC post of 2017".
It also reminds me of a conversation I had with a father of a very good WV High School corner. His son couldn't catch a ball to save his life and when I made mention of this he happily pointed out that he had the state record (Not verifiable) for breakups. Point being, sometimes a good corner is probably the reason they are not a receiver.
Thanks again for the laugh.

wvmtneer: That is some funny stuff. Ha! Ha! I guess I should volunteer as a guest instructor. Didn't we ALL practice this stuff in the backyard and on the sandlots as kids???

Three simple keys: face, shoulders, hands. If you get all three facing the ball as much as possible your chances of making the catch increase dramatically.

It's kind of like playing shortstop. You don't backhand a ball in the hole if you have time to get in front of it and square up. Unless you just want to show off!

My pimp uncle, Big Love, said almost the exact same thing to me. You don't backhand a bitch or a ho, if you have time to get in front of her and square up. Unless you just want to show off.

Sorry, may be watching The Duece on HBO too much.

Win the rest of our games and have an opportunity for a rematch and sweet revenge in the conference title game. That's what we should be playing for.

Should've, Would've, Could've. Such is sports. Every team that makes the CFB playoffs is on the positive side of catching breaks. We're on the opposite. Otherwise we would be 5-0 and talking about the CFB playoffs ourselves.
With that said, we lost to two top 15 teams by a touchdown each. Our defense has improved significantly. Our offense has been and will continue to be solid. Field position, via special teams, has been the Achilles heal for this team. The outlook of this season will be at worse 8-4 (this is my honest non-fan-boy unbiased opinion). BTW, I'm fresh out of Kool-Aid. Kool-Aid is for peasants. I sip Tang from the King's royal chalice embossed gold goblets. Gramercy Le' Mountaineers!

Why can't Dana get special teams right? He has emphasized kicking. He paid a massive salary to the backwards hat kicker whisperer and recruited really strong kickers. It seems like he knows it is important, but he just cannot get the kicking game on track, especially if it involves a return by either team. With all of the athletes on this team, and his willingness to take a risk, I would think he would have some schemes to rush punters and create some mistakes by other teams. Instead we are blocking people into the returner. WTF?
