Geno Smith does not get sacked very often. Last year he put up a 4 percent sack rate, he was barely even touched by the mighty LSU defense, and he hadn't been brought down through West Virginia's first 140 minutes of 2012. That changed thanks to a feisty Maryland squad, with Twitter superstar A.J. Francis doing the honors.
That was preceded by this weird play during which Smith's helmet was ripped off. He didn't have to leave the game, due to ... nobody really understood why, but he didn't. There was another penalty, and things canceled each other out, and just leave us alone man it's early. He might as well have though, since he just ended up being sacked.
Smith has also thrown nine incompletions in just 20 minutes, matching his season total so far.
We'd all anticipated a blowout here, but it's 17-14 Mountaineers right now, and it's hard to say either team has really looked like the superior side so far.
