West Virginia has Plenty of Question Marks

600 yards in the first half, THE FIRST HALF ?! So much for my last article, where I praised the defense and hoping for a step in the right direction after the victory at home against Oklahoma State.

This West Virginia Mountaineers have had the highest highs and the lowest lows. With so many moments to grab and make their own it just simply seems as if this team doesn’t have their true identity. A quarterback shuffle, a roller coaster defense and from the looks of it a head coach that doesn’t game plan. This is the part the puzzles me. Dana Holgorsen was brought into Morgantown because of his high powered “air raid” offense, but he has not done so since the departure of Geno Smith. He was supposed to bring in the amazing recruits and bring WVU to the top of the Big 12 conference, but that hasn’t happened either. So what am I missing ?

Now there are reports that Oliver Luck is going to bail on his alma mater for University of Texas‘ AD job. So if that happens where do the Mountaineers go from there? This bye week comes with a lot of question marks and a lot of fans looking for some answers. With teams such as Kansas State University, TCU and Iowa State still on the docket,  can this team salvage what is left of a highly questionable season and at least make a bowl game?

There are a lot of questions and plenty of games left, but the Mountaineers need to start finding some answers.
