Stu must Go.
I (man) love Geno!
I wish after Marshall recovered the ball and got into first and goal they would have thrown conventional wisdom out the window and kicked the FG right then. Score would have been 24-6 and the pressure would have been on WVU to score 3 TD's (or 2 TD, 1 conv, and 1 FG to tie) instead of 2.
One thing is for sure after watching this game, WVU is going to lose some games this year. I don't think Marshall choked as much as they simply ran out of gas. Schools with more depth and better talent will be able to hold onto leads.
Doesn't help that Doc Holliday coached at WVU last year and knew what the most predictable coach in college football was going to call either.
