West Virginia's football team returned to practice this week after a few days off following its win over USF last Thursday, and several players shared their thoughts on the work to be done and preparations for the Orange Bowl against Clemson.

Quarterback Geno Smith is one of many Mountaineers from Florida, and he spoke on the meaning of a home state (and in his case, a home town) bowl.

The day's practice focused on getting back into rhythm and getting work for some young players, and setting the tone for more intense work specific to the Tigers.

Offensive lineman Don Barclay discussed the offensive line's play against USF and the potential for a high scoring bowl game.

Defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel described the challenges in holding on to improvements made over the course of the season and scouting the tendencies of opponents.
