For those of you who tuned-in to the EKU-Marshall game expecting good football, you are likely very disappointed right now.
The Herd currently has a 38-0 lead going into halftime, and are on cruise control to a 1-0 start to the 2020 season. Eastern Kentucky has looked flat and out of sync since the beginning, particularly on defense.
Redshirt freshman Grant Wells has had a field day against the Colonels — completing 13 of 20 passes for 280 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. The Herd has also added 80 rushing yards and had a rushing touchdown added by stud running back Brenden Knox.
Reserves are likely to receive playing time in the second half, pending a monumental comeback by the Colonels.
If Eastern Kentucky shows up to Morgantown like this, Jarret Doege’s day may be finished fairly early next Saturday. The Colonels simply look horrendous, and any worries that you may have as a fan should just be left in the dust. Should the Mountaineers struggle against EKU, we are in for a long season.
