It truly was a great effort by the Mountaineers on Gold Rush Saturday as the tough West Virginia defense controlled the #11 Cowboys offense and Clint Trickett provided the offensive spark the Mountaineer coaching staff were hoping for as they installed their 3rd starting quarterback in the last 4 games.
As I stated in my update I really believe that if young Ford Childress were health enough to have started this game the Mountaineers do not win, and it may have not been all that close. WVU overcame so sloppy inconsistent special teams play with stellar defense and just enough offense for what I believe was their biggest win thus far in the Big 12.
For this team that was much maligned after the debacle in Baltimore to come out and shock the best team in the Big 12 was a great performance and we should all be proud of the effort
