is a little preview on the WVU RB situation this year:
I can't wait to see what Geno does in this offense. I think Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin are in for some really big years. The defense worries me a lot more than the offense does. A lot of guys to replace back there, and they will probably be on the field quite a bit.
I think we roll Marshall about 41-21. Close around halftime like it always is, and WVU pulls away late.
I talked to a friend of mine who is a Marshall alum. He predicted at halftime that Marshall would blow the game in the 4th quarter last year. We both agree on the final score (35-17), just a difference in how they get there. He thinks WVU coasts, I'm more in agreement with you in that its close at halftime.
I think WVU will sputter on offense the first half. Rookie head coach running a new system and Marshall ALWAYS plays a good first half against the Mountaineers. Ultimately, fatigue sets in for the Herd, WVU will pass more than Marshall can defend (Holliday dismissed two starting senior CB's for drugs), and it's over.
I'm predicting 10-2 or 11-1, depends on LSU and how long their players are sidelined. I see them dropping one game, likely Maryland with Randy Edsall, on the road, and the Terps have a week off to prepare. It will culminate in a BCS game against a Big 12, Va Tech, or SEC team in which WVU will get slaughtered.
