West Virginia Mountaineer Football.......

Postby Mountainman » Sun Sep 27, 2020 10:49 am

........is very, very, very difficult to watch. :oops:

When’s the last time you watched your favorite team GIFT WRAP points to their opponent in all three phases of the game..... offense, defense and special teams?????

How many penalties do you think are acceptable in one game, bonehead penalties included, and how many timeouts should be used so the play call can make it from the sidelines to the huddle BEFORE the play clock expires?????

When’s the last time your favorite team FIRED their OUTSTANDING defensive coordinator for speaking truth to young men and chose not to replace the position, but instead chose a “collaborative approach” to the job with the defensive line coach, linebacker coach and defensive backs coach all coordinating to the point where their is ABSOLUTELY NO ONE covering a gap where a straight dive hand-off to a running back goes for long, long untouched touchdown runs TWICE IN THE SAME GAME?????

As of right now, all future Mountaineer opponents have to do is SHOW-UP...... and let the Mountaineers WIN THE GAME FOR THEM!!!!!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

It’s just simply bad, bad football....... :oops: :oops: :oops:

It's hard when your favorite team screws up and yet being a fan you have to watch every bitter moment. Been there, done that a few times. Hopefully, things will change for the better soon.

Yeah, I was saying this last night, when recapping, that West Virginia has had a tendency to play flat when they are on the road, in conference.

Are we talking solely and this season..? Or can I bring up last year, and the year prior?

I mean ... I though Miami had innovated that as their strategy the last few seasons.

Marxism; It's what's for dinner --- The Colleges are overrun by these Social Communist ideologues who would rather dictate social correctness, than let the Collegiate Experience be one of open dialog and exposure to perspectives outside of one's common normalcy. Instead of stepping out of your comfort zone, they want to create what they call, "Safety Zones". But, those safe spaces are exclusive to the bubble in which they force you into compliance and conformity.

Yeah, that is terrible. Hubbard shouldn't have had those lanes. Especially on that last TD run. The worst part of it, was how the commentary wanted us to know how great Hubbard was, even though he didn't live up to his hype. The O-Line did all of the work for him. And the Defense wasn't anywhere to make it interesting.

I feel you, though.

For Hurricane fans, it was our Offense, rather than our Defense that had such plight. With the carousel of coordinators we saw, we never could get the play called in correctly. Nor could we keep the Offense on the field for very long {mostly 3 & outs} for much of the game. The Defense was generally rather stout. However, when your on the field for 80% + of the game, you're going to get fatigued. Which is exactly what happened, week in-week out.

And the O not holding up their end, made us less than competitive. Along with Special teams, where our kicker couldn't kick the ball into the ocean from the beach. Or the punter who thought he'd be nice, by starting our opponent drives at midfield.

Although we have upgraded both the field goal kicker, and the punter. I still feel leery each time one of our guys goes to kick the ball. I just can't help feeling those old vibes. Hard to shake `em, when they've been with you for so long.

Anyway, hopefully those days are over, for us. {though, Mark Pope has given 2 muffed punts to the opposition in 3 games already}

It'll be a tough year for the Mountaineers this go around. Hopefully they can put it together and build some decent consistency. The Big XII isn't a bad place to do it in, either. Because the rest of the conference seems to be struggling in one fashion or another. Maybe the `Eers can exploit some of those deficiencies and muster a .500 win/loss ratio.

All schools have issues with political correctness. It has really become ridiculous in the schools and in society. There is a saying "things aren't always how they seem" I disagree, they are almost always how they seem if you are paying attention.

Self inflicted isuues continue to haunt the Mountaineers....... way too many penalties amounting to near 100 yards per game, spotty pass blocking, a bunch of dropped passes and costly turnovers, the difference in the game against Texas Tech when a fumble was returned for the game winning TD, and communications issues between the sidelines and the field where the defense is either not getting lined up correctly or confused, resulted in another occurrence of an uncovered gap and a straight dive handoff goes for an untouched runner to the endzone.

Considering the remaining schedule (K-State, Texas, TCU, Oklahoma, Iowa State) and the execution issues it’s very possible, IMHO, the Mountaineers will not win another game this season. :roll: :roll: :roll:


..........and the “Trust the Climb” Honeymoon for Neil Brown is OVER!!!!! :roll: :roll: :roll:
