No Major Changes Expected for Mountaineers This Week

Morgantown, West Virginia – During today’s press conference, West Virginia head coach Neal Brown said there won’t be “night and day changes schematically this week” when the Mountaineers travel to play TCU on Saturday night.

In addition, Brown released his official depth chart last night and it showed no major changes to his two-deep roster either.

Brown’s promise to “put everything on the table” in terms of changes to his 2-4 team appears to false.  Brown, instead, will essentially put the very same product on the field this weekend that he has for the previous six weeks and hope for a different result.

Two weeks ago, Brown quote Albert Einstein: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.”

Brown will trot out Jarret Doege as his starting quarterback.  He will run the same or similar plays.  And he will hope that his team can somehow upset a tough TCU team.

The fact that Brown has chosen to not make wholesome personnel or schematic adjustments shows just how stubborn and resistant to change he truly is, and unfortunately it is going to lead to more losses.  Brown should have made massive changes following the Maryland game, where Jarret Doege essentially handed the game over to the Terrapins.

Although Brown has many great attributes of an outstanding head coach, his refusal to admit his mistakes and make the appropriate adjustments is going to continue to hurt his West Virginia Mountaineers this season.
