Takes one to know one

You could ask a coach or even the player himself how and what Andrew Buie did for himself in the spring at WVU, his first taste of football since he walked away from the team last summer, and you could probably accurately anticipate the responses. Buie did all right Saturday and he played a bit of inside receiver, but he’s also probably trailing Rushel Shell, Dreamius Smith, Wendell Smallwood and Dustin Garrison — and you wonder how much of Buie’s activity Saturday was due to Smith’s absence from the game.

Or you could go to a person who knows Buie quite well, to say nothing of adverse conditions and obstacles to overcome to make an impression on offense.

    This interview was kind of depressing, about two guys who know they probably aren’t going to get a lot of snaps this year. Hard to believe we played LSU and the only healthy backs were true freshmen Garrison and Vernard Roberts, and then the next year Andrew Buie had 25 carries against Baylor, 31 against Texas and 21 against Texas Tech.

    I do hope we throw the Tavon touch pass to some of these backs split wide. Strange team when over 2000 combined career yards will sit the bench while Paul Millard, Clint Trickett, Skyler Howard or Logan Moore throw passes.
