We’re 5-1 today. It’s a respectable record, but not one we as fans are necessarily happy with.

If you had asked me at the beginning of the season, “Hey Charley, you stud, what might cause WVU to lose a game in the first half of the season?” My answer would have been simple.

Surely, our offense wouldn’t be the culprit. Surely.

But there we were, unable to muster just about anything against USF’s defense. Only putting up 13 points in a game where even scoring just half our season average would have won the game. The offense let us down.

I think it’s high time (not High Times) we all gave the defense some credit. Here you go defense:
