With 15 graduating seniors and others leaving the WVU football team, the program is in need of some new faces to take over the squad.
It wasn't just Geno Smith, Tavon Austin, and Stedman Bailey who moved on. The offense has all of two returning starters, and they're a couple of offensive tackles (one of whom has been trying out center in the offseason).
The entirety of the offensive play makers has disappeared. The defense lost key players in the front seven, not to mention that unit ranked 117th out of 124 FBS schools in 2012. There's no reason why some new talent shouldn't be able to show up on day one.
So that brings us here, at the start of July with the first game coming against William and Mary coming on August 31. The same old numbers will be out on the Milan Puskar Stadium turf (in new uniforms, of course), but the athletes wearing them will be entirely different, looking to make a name for themselves as those who preceded them did.
