I'm calling it that WVU and Oklahoma will play each other back-to-back on consecutive weeks

Wow. Tony Gibson was the first one who asked him to play wr (for the scout team), after he noticed his athletic gifts.

Props to Tony!

I've got huge respect for Sills. Giving up on the QB position given all the press and expectations couldn't have been easy.

I like the story, but it does put extra pressue on him to perform against Virginia Tech.

WVU ranks 27th among 128 FBS schools in getting the most out of talent, according to a 538 modelling. As expected, they found a big correlation between talent and results. Alabama had both. According to the analysis, Texas was among the worst (122nd) and OU among the best (8th. )

27 West Virginia Big 12 640.2 +14.0 +6.5

Finally, a little respect, if only a little. ESPN #4 Conference Power Ranking

Open in new window 4. West Virginia Mountaineers: The arrival of QB Will Grier has elevated West Virginia's expectations, even though the Mountaineers lost several key pieces off last year's team. Dana Holgorsen believes Grier has the talent to be West Virginia's best QB since Geno Smith, who threw for 4,198 yards and 42 TDs in 2012. If coordinator Tony Gibson can retool the defense once again, West Virginia could be the sleeper of the conference race.


West Virginia

Last season's record: 10-3

Key returning players: RB Justin Crawford, S Dravon Askew-Henry, S Kyzir White

Key losses: C Tyler Orlosky, WR Shelton Gibson, CB Rasul Douglas

Reason for optimism: Florida transfer Will Grier could be West Virginia's best QB since Geno Smith, with the ability to stretch the field with a powerful arm. Askew-Henry's return from a knee injury figures to stabilize the secondary.

Reason for concern: The offensive line will be in flux after losing several key players from last season's group. The defensive line is almost completely new as well, and the Mountaineers will be without key linebacker David Long for at least the first month of the season.

X factor: If the spring game is any indication, transfer David Sills could become Grier's favorite target. Sills left West Virginia to try to be a QB again but returned as a receiver, where he's a natural.

Game to watch: Virginia Tech (Sept. 3)

It's quite simple really. Sills has grown up and realizes that his best chance to play on Sunday is at WR.

For anyone bored and can't wait until Sunday. One of the greatest individual performances I've ever seen. After clicking play, just click where it says "Watch on Youtube". It just takes you to Youtube.

Tavon could certainly make quick cuts, but also he had some great blocks from lots of different players.

If you haven't read this article yet, you absolutely must. Great article about Saban and Jimbo, and the WV ties and roots.

Please correct me if I am wrong; but are we the only major college football team that does not run some sort of "pick" play?
