2012 WVU Football Unit Previews: Wide Receivers

2

2012 WVU Football Unit Previews: Wide Receivers. Yeah, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey might be the top wide receiver tandem in the country, but even they can't do it all by themselves...or can they?

4

The Smoking Musket continues its 2012 WVU Football Unit Previews with the Running Backs. What should we expect from the veterans Shawne Alston, Andrew Buie and Dustin Garrison, and who are the key backups and blocking backs?

DE De'Asian Richardson Commits to WVU

2
BlueGoldNews.com is listing 4-star DE De'Asian Richardson as a WVU verbal. Richardson, from Orange Park, FL, also has offers from Alabama, Florida State, and Oklahoma. This is a huge pickup for the future of Joe DeForest's defense.

You know the e-card was created by a Marshall grad when it features the incorrect usage of "here" instead of "hear."

Even The NCAA Wants A Piece Of The WVU Offense

Everybody wants a piece of the WVU offense---even the NCAA, who featured Dustin Garrison's 291 yards against Bowling Green as one of its top performances of 2011.

Geno Smith Named Preseason Big XII Offensive Player Of The Year

WVU Quarterback Geno Smith tabbed Big XII preseason offensive player of the year. Rev up the swagger wagon.

Should Pat White Have Won The Heisman?

Should WVU quarterback Pat White have won the Heisman trophy in 2007? Tim Tebow had a great season, but had things worked out differently, Pat White was a deserving alternative.

WVU Forward Pat Forsythe To Transfer

WVU redshirt freshman forward Pat Forsythe is transferring to Akron. That begs two questions: What's with the growing trend of Bob Huggins recruits failing to finish their careers in Morgantown? And why would anyone want to go to Akron?

Evolution Of The Air Raid Offense

+

Chris over at Smart Football has outdone himself again, this time giving a comprehensive history of the evolution of the air raid offense and the characters who helped shape it. Definitely interesting reading for those who want to gain better insight into the concepts and philosophies at play when Dana Holgorsen calls a game.

FB Elijah Wellman Verbals To WVU

+

The 2-star fullback from Huntington, WV picked the Mountaineers over an offer from Marshall. At 6'3, 235 lbs, Wellman is suited for Holgorsen's "B" back position and looks to be capable of filling the shoes of Matt Lindamood and Ryan Clarke when he arrives on campus in 2013.

Boston College SG Matthew Humphrey To Finish Career At WVU

3

Because Humphrey graduated from BC this year, he will be eligible to play one year for the Mountaineers under the graduate student transfer rule. He was the Eagles' second leading scorer last year, so hopefully he can give Huggs' squad the type of shooting threat they lacked in 2011-12.

Virginia WR Kwamane Bowens Verbals To WVU

+

Per Geoff Coyle at WVIllustrated: "The offense is really explosive," says Bowens. "I love the offense because you can do so much with it. I'm really excited to be a part of it." UPDATE: WVIllustrated has since removed the story, and numerous sources on Twitter and elsewhere are saying that Bowens did NOT commit to WVU. Rather than remove the story and create confusion, we are providing this update. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

RichRod #10 On ESPN List Of All-Time Most Hated Coaches

2
West Virginia fans absolutely loved Rodriguez, a former WVU defensive back, when he guided the Mountaineers to 60 victories and two BCS bowl games from 2001 to 2007. But WVU fans literally drove Rodriguez and his family from his native state after he abruptly left the school to become Michigan’s coach in 2008. Wolverines fans don’t like him too much, either, after Rodriguez went 15-22 in three seasons. I don't like to dwell on the past, but our favorite ignorant slut ESPN writer, Mark Schlabach, says it pretty well. This is the highest ranking RichRod has seen in anything since December 2007.

OLB Hodari Christian Verbals to WVU

+

It's being reported all over Twitter that McKeesport, PA linebacker Hodari Christian is on board as the third player in WVU's 2013 recruiting class. Christian, at 6'0, 210 lbs projects as a weakside linebacker (the "star" position currently filled by Terence Garvin). Welcome home, Hodari!
