WVU Trying To Become a Better Football Program

Shawn PenningtonContributor IOctober 2, 2009

As a Mountaineer faithful, I watched WVU get hammered in the 1st half with what has been refered to as the turnover bug.  We as WVU fans seen this 10 days ago against Auburn and now with Colorado.  I have told people that it was going to be a close game not an  11 pt game as we seen.  However, if you look at the missed FG by Colorado you would notice that the turnover ratio was equal.  I know that this team isn't like years past with the Pat Whites and Steve Slaton's, however, we need to go back to the basics.  Stop doing trickery plays and trying to beat teams deep but to stay on the ground and pound it out like we used to do.  I'm not saying like the option style play which is good and exciting but look at it this way a ttl of 10 turnovers in 2 games is beyond words.  Like the great John Madden would tell you when you run, run it straight up the middle not on the sides.  That's the way we need to run it.  Stop trying to be the White WVU offense and start being the team offense.  I saw Jarrett Brown last night and he looked like he was trying to be like Pat White.  He's got to be himself and lead this team.  The skies the limit for WVU if we don't lose any other games espceially with turnovers.
