WVU vs. Louisville Grades: A Unit-By-Unit Look At The Mountaineers Victory Over The Cardinals

Around 2 p.m. on Saturday afternoon I was ready for nap. Not because I stayed up late the night before or because I moved into a new place early that morning, but rather because I was watching an extremely boring football game on the picture box. WVU vs. Louisville was mind numbingly boring.

The sad part about the almost nap is the fact I was in a bar. I have never intentionally taken a nap in a bar before. Our offense has no life and lacks any ingenuity in its play calling. In fact, I'm beginning to think Jeff Mullen was the chief designer of the Ford Pinto.

When Bill Stewart said the Big East was the black and blue league, he was right. My eyes were black and blue after poking myself in the eyes trying to stay awake on Saturday.

This was a terrible performance for almost every unit. Let's get the pain over with...

Offense:    D   Why did I yet again believe this offense was anything other than completely incompetent?

Offensive Line:     F  Does Dave Johnson also teach bull fighting at WVU?  ¡OLÉ!

Defense:    A++++++++   While our offense was horrible, I was never afraid that Louisville was going to win. This unit was in complete control of the game the entire day.

Special Teams:    C-   Brandon Hogan just decided to catch the first punt of the day. Oh wait, he just changed his mind. Also, Tyler Bitancurt just had another field goal blocked. Great job line!

Bill Stewart:     D-  I give him credit for not wanting to lubricate the world in his post game press conference.

Jeff Casteel:    A++++++++  I don't know if he wants to be a head coach, but if we do have a new coach next season, I hope they think long and hard about keeping Casteel and others on his staff.
