The Longest Yard

Selvish Capers

A problem that has plagued this year's edition of the Mountaineers all season long raised its ugly head again in this past Saturday's crucial Big East conference tilt with the visiting Cincinnati Bearcats.

Following the overtime defeat, much of the blame turned to the offense's inability to once again convert on short yardage plays. On multiple occasions the Mountaineer's continued to prove the old saying that football is truly a game of inches, as their mixture of plays were stopped in the backfield, often resulting in drive killing punts or turnovers on downs.
