Before posting this I had to look around to check and see if there were any more yellow flags lying around. Yes, Steve, I agree, Darius Ashley is an effective back. But as anyone who's ever played Tecmo Bowl can tell you, even if you have Bo Jackson, you gotta mix it up every once in awhile or the opponent is going to catch on. The weakness of the WVU defense is in the secondary; the inability to stretch the field to our wideouts is ridiculous. I've heard time and again that the rationale for keeping Krags aboard the rest of the way is because someone has to call the plays. Well, throw one of those batteries back into the stands and I think you could hit someone to call a more imaginative offense. I haven't been a proponent of firing Krags during the season before; now I'm leaning that way. Send a message that the undiciplined mess of a game plan is unacceptable, that wasting timeouts when a game is coming down to the wire is moronic, that having a team with good field position look like they've never run a 2 minute drill is pathetic. Purge the program of this incompetent anchor, and at least give the fans an opportunity to show up and support the players in a positive, Kragthorpe-less atmosphere, for the final home game.
Will Stein, nice effort, but I'm afraid the clock has struck midnight on your Cinderella story. A big tip of the hat to the defense, they did their uniform proud and then some. Enjoy the horse races, we're taking a day of rest tomorrow. See you Monday morning when we regroup for the final push for the football season (till the bitter end folks), investigate more head coaches available out there, and take stock of the Big East basketball landscape. Go Cards.
