2/4/14 - The West Virginia Mountaineers ended last year’s roller coaster season with a 4-8 record (2-7 Big 12), characterized as a team struggling to replace spectacular talents Geno Smith, Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin. The offense never recovered and the defense plummeted: WVU lost their final two games, which cost them a bowl appearance. The quarterback situation was looking brighter, though recently suffered a major setback: Ford Childress was suspended by head coach Dana Holgorsen for unknown reasons and Clint Trinkett is still rehabbing a torn labrum. The most notable Mountaineer to enter this year’s NFL Draft is RB Charles Sims, top pick from WVU and one of the top RB prospects in the nation. There are currently 14 commits, headed by four-star players QB William Crest, athlete Dravon Henry (No.11 athlete in the nation and a possible safety fit), RB Donte Thomas-Williams, WR Jacob McCrary and WR Lamar Parker. If WVU lands these key impact players, expect big things from the Mountaineers in 2014!

First up is Texas, then a road trip to Kansas and back home to face Iowa State. Not since 2001 has West Virginia not been part of a bowl game, watch them on the hunt for their 12th straight bid!
