MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – A common theme has permeated West Virginia through the early portion of the season – the need to become a more physical offensive
[See the full post at: WVU Coaches Cite Need For More Physical Play]
I agree with the physical aspect. An example of this was last week when the Arizona Cardinals played Tennessee. Arizona just came out and punched Tennessee right in the mouth. It stayed that way the entire game. It was 17-0 before the end of the first qtr. I think Oregon did the same thing to Ohio State last week. Yes it was close game but Oregon was really physical in that game. IMO when you are very physical from the start it is a bit of a surprise and can throw an opponent off.
again…until WVU gets run blocking(1st) OL, the nitemare will continue….
Being physical today was a big help especially in half number 1
Agree with that. The entire team played with high intensity
The entire defense was flying around and awesome until they were playing safe on a few 3rd and forever plays.
The O-line showed some good signs today. Gave Doege an eternity much of the time and opened some nice holes for Leddie. still some lack of communication when pressure is brought???
O intensity seemed to let down in the 2nd half. Play calling?
D was stoked the whole game. Agree with Mex that the 3rd and long prevent was not executed. Pressure on Burmeister had him rattled. He killed us when we gave him time on a 3 man rush to either pick us apart sometimes deep or run for big yds.
