WVU vs. Maryland Grades: A Unit-By-Unit Look At The Mountaineers Victory Over The Terrapins

To say this week has been hectic would be putting it mildly.  Here are the delayed grades for the Maryland game.

Offense:  B+
Tempo and running game were there during the first half.  3 costly turnovers bring the grade down, although they were able to drive the field and get points at the end when needed, if only 3 instead of the desired 7.  That still forced Maryland to perhaps change how their last drive was orchestrated.

Running Game:  B
Not setting the world on fire, yet marked improvement this week, and we even had a couple rushing touchdowns

Quarterbacks:  A-
Geno sets his personal career highs in attempts, completions (school record here) and yards

Receivers:  A
For the first time ever, I believe, WVU had 3 receivers eclipse the 100 yard mark (Tavon, Stedman and Sticks)

Defense:  C
Wonderful first half and created 3 turnovers, especially when it need it the most at the end.  Getting pushed around in the run game during the second half is a major concern heading into this week's game with LSU, who love to pound the ball

Special Teams:  A
Several nice returns and no real coverage breakdowns.  Bitancurt perfect on the day.

Discipline:  A
We'll just disregard the 2 personal foul calls as the BS they were.

Crowd:  A
Sitting in an opponents stadium has never been so nice, for me at least.  Huge contingent of Mountaineers fans in attendance and lots of noise.
