Welcome, By-Godders, to The Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU’s best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor, and daily distractions.
After a second consecutive losing football season, West Virginia head coach Neal Brown has come to the realization that the team needs to start winning. Brown said that last season “wasn’t good enough,” “it’s on me,” and “we need to win” in a recent media session.
WVU has been making changes on the coaching staff, with new hires and restructured assignments, particularly on the offensive side. Many are also speculating that Brown will reclaim play calling duties for the Mountaineers’ offense, with his job potentially being on the line this upcoming year.
