It’s been since the halcyon days of Pat White beside Steve Slaton that West Virginia’s offensive reputation has sent people reaching for their thesauruses .. thesauri? … most revealing adjectives. We’re mingling with this new audience now and there is no once-slain conference rival who remembers No. 5 and No. 10 and gets a shiver up their spine.

“What Geno Smith did the other day, when you look at the numbers, you say, ‘How can that possibly happen? How can a guy sit there with those types of numbers against a very good competitor?’ ” Kansas Coach Charlie Weis said. “It’s kind of scary.”
Do you know who’s not as impressed? Gen Smith.
