How Rough Will Things Get For The West Virginia Mountaineers?

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports


I hate to state the obvious, but things are looking quite rough in Morgantown right now.

The Mountaineers are coming off one of their worst performances in over a decade, as they were demolished by the Maryland Terrapins 37-0. Turnovers, poor quarterback play, and lack of any defensive power were a recipe for disaster in College Park, Maryland. Fans all over the state of West Virginia seem to be losing faith in Head Coach Dana Holgerson, Offensive Coordinator Shannon Dawson, and even Defensive Coordinator Keith Patterson, who’s proud defense was embarrassed on Saturday. This coming Saturday, WVU has what is being called a much greater task at hand than the Terrapins were. The #11 Oklahoma State Cowboys roll into Morgantown at noon on Saturday, with their high powered offense led by quarterback J.W. Walsh.

The Mountaineer’s schedule doesn’t get any easier from there, with dates with the high-flying Baylor Bears and Texas Tech Red Raiders after that. These facts bring up the sad question, “How likely is it that the Mountaineers will end with a losing record, their first since 2001?”

And, “Do you, as the fans, believe that either Dana Holgerson, Shannon Dawson, or Keith Patterson should be fired?”

Let us know what you think in the comments!
