Bold statement alert: “Sims’ debut in Saturday’s season opener at home against William & Mary is, quite simply, the most anticipated at WVU since the similarly introverted Noel Devine’s in 2007.”
There. I said it. I know it’s not a very large window, but WVU has had quite a few well-hyped newcomers since then (Tavon Austin, Robert Sands, Bruce Irvin, Tevita Finau, to name a few). But Sims has accomplished more, has proven more at this level than all of those guys had before their debuts. He is better physically suited to make a splash right now.
We’re talking about a guy with 4,077 yards of offense to his name and someone who has averaged 7.7 yards per touch in his career and scored a touchdown once every 14 times he got the ball. We’re talking about a guy who’s going to get the ball a lot on offense and on special teams. We’re talking about the coolest chess piece on the board.
So I ask you: What are you expecting from Sims this season?
