Offense extremely confident
West Virginia has the type of offense that can produce tons of points this season in the Big 12. We saw what they were capable of last season and with everyone returning, the sky is really the limit for this West Virginia team in 2012. (Via The Charleston Gazette)
I think we're excited, but I think we're going about business as usual. Quarterback Geno Smith said. We're going to make sure we focus in and don't leave any stones unturned this season because we believe we have a shot at the national title.
If this offense is going to produce the type of numbers we all believe it is capable of doing, it is all going to start with quarterback Smith. He had a great season last year, but says he has been working on his game during the offseason and has improved as a player.
I made poor decisions in a lot of situations. Smith said. That's really where I've improved the most, my decision making and being able to get us in and out of good plays, taking care of the ball a little bit more and just overall being a better quarterback.
Head coach Dana Holgorsen recently said that he believes all of his players have passed their classes to where they should be eligible to play this season. Even the ones that may have been on the fence, he believes that there should be no problems, as the season is ready to kickoff in just two weeks. (Via Dave Hickman of the Charleston Gazette)
"I think we're in the clear. It's a miracle,'' Holgorsen said. "It's the first miracle of the season. A couple of guys, I had some very serious reservations about and they got cleared.''
