    Nice to see Fowler isn't buying "we are talented" like many around here are clinging too..

    Are you sure Fowler wasnt talking about the coaching staff being much more talented on the oppossing sidelines?

    that's a true statement, but fowler is a tool, just like most other broadcasters.

    You know what, you're right. We might as well send the team out on the field on game days without a coaching crew on the sidelines. Its not like those guys are making any difference.

    Thanks Fowler, we score a meaningless TD against scrubs just to feel better about ourselves. How much further can we fall?

    You can blame the coaches all you want, but the bottom line is we don't have Big 12 caliber talent.. End of story..

    Hawkins has had 4 years to recruit and we have no talent according to you. So, in essence, you have indicted the coaching staff just as much as I have- end of story.

    Hawkins first full year to recruit are now sophomores. I know that's advanced math.

    Recruiting talent is only half the equation. Getting the most out of your talent is the other part and we've got a few guys on defense who've gone backwards.

    WVU had a few game changing athletes at skill positions, but otherwise I truly believe we have better talent than them.

    dude, we may have matched up well in some areas but overall they spanked us. they have way more talent on the field and on the sidelines.

    Did WVU look good to you on defense?

    Do they even have a tight end?

    Did their o-line impress you (or did our pass rush get that much better)?

    They've got some skill guys and they know how to use them, but top to bottom that is nowhere near being a complete team.

    Our pass rush was the result of blitzes, or zone blitzes. They handled us easily up front. See Devine's 200 yards rushing and the last big drive during the game (down 21-17)


    But you are right they aren't a complete team, which shows you how far down we are.

    Whoa. I get that you're being positive. That's great but man we're not even in the same league with them. We're barely playing the same sport. We have Speedy... and not much else.

    OK well we have NO game changing athletes. Speedy is close but he isn't Noel Devine of even Jock Sanders.

    We did not have better talent on the whole, did you see our safety's get embarrassed on those long runs and catches? I have never seen a slower secondary. BJ Beatty was about the only guy on the defensive side of the ball worth a damn.

    His first full class are now Juniors or RS Sophomores. In their third year in the program either way.

    Agree with the second half of your statement....

    I think Fowler is right, WVU has more talent than us, but we are still a much more talented team than we were 4 years ago.

    You sure about that? I don't see much of a difference..


    I know one thing, there is no Dizon's on this defense.

    I know we dont have Dizon, but Beatty did pretty good, and Major is going to be awesome, he has some good speed.

    This team can be very good, there is enough talent. We need some coaching talent.

    I'm 100% positive. And we have several guys who could be like Dizon.

    AMEN!:thumbsup:

    This is definitely true to some extent.... Its worsened by the fact that the few 'good' players we do have do not see any playing time.

    Based on what? Dizon made an impact the day he stepped on campus.. We have no one from this year's recruiting class that has done that..
