“Almost Heaven, West Virginia”

Charles Simms, a transfer RB from Houston, TX was a popular name on the WVU offense on Saturday afternoon. Rushing for 120 yards, Simms ended the game with one touchdown and a target on his back. With his quick feet and powerful running, Simms made a clear statement that he would be a threat to Big 12 defensive squads.

The Mountaineer’s defense was lead by 5-year senior Darwin Cook and Sophomore Karl Joseph. Cook, or “The Cookie Monster,” a Safety and Mountaineer fan favorite, ended the day with six total tackles and one interception that sealed the victory for West Virginia.
While his stats against W&M did not show his true work ethic, Safety Karl Joseph made his presence known in the backfield. As a freshman, Joseph had a breakout season and quickly became one of the key faces for Mountaineer Nation. It is clear that Joseph’s amazing field vision is something that works in WVU’s favor, especially after the Mountaineers struggled to find balance in the backfield during the 2012-2013 season.

The West Virginia coaching staff has made significant improvements to the young team after losing key seniors QB Geno Smith and RB/WR Tavon Austin, who were both signed to NFL teams during the offseason. The question is, are these changes big enough for the Big 12? (photos by:Google)
