Now THAT is more like it. Finally, even after a sluggish start (in which we only lead by 10 at half), WVU put together it’s most complete effort yet this season. Against a team that had not given up more than 27 points all season, the Mountaineers absolutely humiliated UConn for 517 rushing yards and 66 points. In Reece Davis speak, we hung half-a-hundred on them, plus a few more for posterity.Seriously, what we witnessed Saturday afternoon was a thing of beauty. When this offense clicks on all cylinders, frankly, I don’t know who can stop it. Certainly not UConn. They weren’t even close.
In the national spotlight, with the BCS Championship on the line, it looks like CRR let his hair down and really let the offense run full-steam. WBGV had been calling for more Noel Devine for weeks, months even. What did we see Saturday? More Noel Devine. Not just in a relief role, either. More than a handful of times, we saw the scariest of Mountaineer backfields: White flanked by Slaton and Devine. And you know what? It worked. Over and over. White runs for 186 yards, Slaton goes for 2 TDs, and the mercurial Devine averages over 10 yards/carry. Imagine that.
