Don’t expect the many offseason rumors and rumors of rumors to affect the Old Gold and Blue. The West Virginia Mountaineers—under new Head Coach, Dana Holgorsen—will be Big East Champions in 2011.
In most cases one would not expect much from a team with a new coaching staff. However, Holgorsen has proven more than once that he is up to the task of overcoming stereotypical insights.
With the help of Quarterback, Geno Smith, Holgorsen will take the Mountaineers to heights that they have seen before but, in a totally different fashion. The Mountaineers will rank in the top in passing offense. Wide receiver, Tavon Austin will make fans forget about former WVU standouts like Steve Slaton and Noel Devine.
Coaches from all over the country will be coming to Morgantown to get tips from Holgorsen.
The Mountaineer defense—ranked third overall in 2010—will prove to be even better. With Defensive Coordinator, Jeff Casteel and coaches, Steve Dunlap, David Lockwood, and Bill Kirelawich, the WVU defense will be the epitome of the highlight reels.
Bruce Irvin and Keith Tandy will be the envy of all college football players.
According to Pittsburgh’s official athletics website, Pitt’s Todd Graham says of his team, “We are going to restore the Beast from the East…”
Someone had better tell that to the Mountaineer Nation. Pitt may just have a Brawl on their hands. Matter of fact; look for that brawl on November 25, 2011.
It may just be the Big East Championship game.
