We’ve already talked at length about how West Virginia has fallen from grace over the course of the last several weeks, but we think that the time is now that the club is going to get back on track. Last week’s loss against the Oklahoma Sooners was a close encounter, and it was a game that really could have, and perhaps should have been won. It’s not like this offense is failing to score against good teams. WR Stedman Bailey has logged back to back 200+ yard games, while QB Geno Smith is still averaging over 330 yards and 3.5 TDs game as well. His 7/1 TD/INT ratio is out of this world for a quarterback playing at this level in this conference. Iowa State ranks in the bottom third of most major offensive and defensive categories, and that’s not good against a team that is so proficient on the offensive side of the ball. After a month’s worth of failure, the Mountaineers are finally going to have something to be thankful for in the form of a bowl bid the day after Thanksgiving.
