Welcome to the Friday Feedback, which sees just one last hurdle between us and it. We’ve placed all these obstacles along the way to the regular season — media days, the start of camp, the big scrimmage, the end of camp, the mock game week, things like that — but this is the beginning of the end of the offseason.
Today, West Virginia does that seemingly trivial/seemingly priceless mock Friday night, in which the team gets on a bus and goes to the hotel and simulates a Friday before a home game. Tomorrow will be treated much like a game day, and the Mountaineers will do some important physical and mental reps and finish it off by singing “Country Roads” at the end.
And then that’s it. Sunday is an ordinary Sunday. Meetings. Film. A light workout. Monday is an off day for school. Tuesday is prep for a real, live opponent. We really need it, too. I wrote a story about Marvin Gross. I’m concerned about who the backup place kicker is. I know what happens if Hodari Christian gets hurt. I need to know who’s on the front line in kickoff returns. It’s bad.
Onto the Feedback. As always, comments appear as posted. In other words, you’re always on the clock.
I don’t understand the stuff about him having a safety body. Did Daryl Worley have a safety body? (He is going to probably start for the Panthers.)
It just seemed weird. I just want the two best corners to play.
He’s big? Bigger than a cornerback typically is? He’s stout and he can run, and you kind of need that at safety if you’re going to be used in coverage but also asked to come up and cover tight ends and stop the run. WVU uses a nickel similarly.
