    I cant be the only person who thinks they might be the most entertaining team to watch this year. Geno Smith throwing to Austin and Bailey in Holgorsen's offense is gonna put a ridiculous amount of points on the board. After they hung 70 on Clemson and return those key pieces, I'm a believer.

    I'm a believer in that Offense, not so much in the D. Pat Miller is to that secondary what Alan Ball was to the Cowboys.

    I wonder how many plays will be run when WV plays OU. That should be a wild game.

    WV will stomp Chokelahoma.

    Landry Jones is overrated and completely falls apart when he has to play a big game on the road. Plus Choke-U's defense can't stop anyone.

    I'm willing to bet WV puts up over 40 on them.

    But normally not the defenses

    But UT's defense shoudl be great
    Come to think of it, OU and TCU's may be ok too

    WVU's defense is the big "question mark" here.

    The past few years the defense has been pretty good, but this year they are putting in a new defense and going away from the 3-3-5 stack.

    Plus they have an all new defensive coaching staff.

    Not to mention the defense would have been rebuilding even without those changes.

    With Holgs' offense, it is either 4-5 plays and a TD, or 3 and out, .. so the defense never rests. They need to be deep and they are not just yet.

    Plus the Big 12 is a much tougher conference week to week.

    But if the defense can hold their own somewhat, it should be an interesting year.

    I'm ok with Marshall, .. I cheer for them to win and do well, .. except when they are playing WVU.

    Yes, BP lives in WV too.

    OU/WVU will finished 1/2 in the Big XII-2-1+1-1+1. IMO, OU will win that game in an absolute shootout as WVU' defense is just a little worse and Stoops eats up 3-3-5 and 4-2-5 defenses.

    It will be a very successful first campaign for WVU, though. They need to recruit more defensive talent in the future, but they're going to hang 60-70 on several teams this year.

    WVU will score a lot, but OU will as well. WVU's "gimmick" 3-3-5 won't be able to stop them.

    They need to recruit more defensive line talent and move to base 4-3.

    They switched to a 3-4 this yr with some 4-3 packages. Our former DC went to join his brother DickRod in AZ.

    WVU handles in state rival Marshall, 69-34.

    Geno and the offense picked up where they left off in the Orange Bowl, but defense still a "question mark."
