And we’re off to Baylor, but what if I told you that Jordan Thompson spoke? To reporters, no less! Timing is everything and here’s proper perspective about this game: Understand that WVU had 807 yards of offense against the Bears last year. Of all the players to contribute to that, only Thompson and his 16 yards played in last week’s win against Oklahoma State.
His 17-yard reception last week was a big one for the Mountaineers and Thompson, who actually started against the Cowboys after not even playing the prior two games, is apparently off the self-described, though not self-prescribed “probation” period.
“They knew last year wasn’t really a great season for me and it was disappointing for myself,” he said. “But I look at it and I’m glad I had that season. I felt like I built experience as a freshman, and because I gained a little experience, I can relay that to a lot of the first-year players. That’s making the team grow and grow and grow, and we’re going to play together for a couple of years.”
More? Sure. Smart Football and Geoff Coyle joined me on Scoop & Score last night. You know what Mr. Brown does, but Mr. Coyle delivered in describing the much discussed sideline status of this particular WVU team.
And on the eve of the game against the Bears, revisit last year’s story about what they do that’s so odd on offense and remember to keep an eye on their trips packages and all the things Baylor can do out of them.
I’ll see you in the blog Saturday.
