MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers suffered an embarrassing 59-20 loss to the Oklahoma Sooners in Norman, Oklahoma last night, and following the game, Neal Brown seemed particularly disturbed by his team’s effort on the field last night.
“I’m disappointed to say the least,” Brown said. “That didn’t resemble anything that we’re supposed to do. That football – in all three phases – didn’t resemble anything that we’ve put on tape this year. Quite frankly, I’m pissed and nearly embarrassed by what we put on tape tonight.”
Brown went on to say that he had never been a part of a game like that one in terms of passing the ball. “As bad of stats passing that I’ve ever been associated with,” said Brown. “We had drops. We missed reads. We missed throws. We got hit more tonight than we have. Offensively, Garrett (Greene) really struggled after that first drive and didn’t play like himself,” Brown said. “Really, it was decision making. I can deal with errant throws and all that, but he just didn’t see it very good. He’ll learn from it. He’ll get better. We had people open in the passing game. We had more drops than we’ve had all year. They beat us upfront. After our first initial drive, they got after us upfront. That’s really the first time that’s happened all year.”
Brown continued: “We didn’t make enough competitive play. They did. And that’s why they kicked our tail.”
The Mountaineers are back in action next Saturday, November 18 at 2:30PM in Morgantown, West Virginia against the Cincinnati Bearcats. Cincinnati beat Houston, a team that the Mountaineers lost to, 24-14 yesterday.
Neal Brown said last night that he was "pissed" and "nearly embarrassed" in how his team played last night.
But really, isn't that how they've played for 5 years now? Isn't that what was expected based on his history with the team? #WVU
