Mountaineer fans, everywhere, are gearing up for the 2010 football season. Whether it is Noel Devine’s quest for the top running back spot, or Robert Sands quest to be the best safety ever at WVU, there is plenty to keep an eye on in 2010.
For the first time since he was hired, Bill Stewart enters a season with players he has recruited as the nucleus of the team.
How Stewart’s third team performs will go a long way in deciding his future as head coach. Fair, or not, Stewart must reach double-digit wins in 2010 to squelch the unrest in Mountaineer Nation.
Accepting 10 wins as the barometer for the season, can WVU reach that plateau?
A glance at the provided schedule provides no opponent that is clearly superior to the 2010 Mountaineer football team.
9/4 Coastal Carolina
9/10 at Marshall
9/25 at LSU
10/9 Nevada-Las Vegas
10/14 South Florida
10/29 at Connecticut

Certainly, there are teams on the schedule that are more than capable of beating WVU. However, none of the opponents on the schedule are guaranteed losses.
