If there is one thing Mountaineer Nation is good at, it’s complaining.
Whether it be helmet stickers or the play of the team itself, this fanbase will almost always have something to bitch about. I am here to tell you today, when it comes to complaining about Mountaineer head coach Neal Brown, just stop.
No, the team does not look to be complete right now – and yes, the play-calling doesn’t always seem to be up to par. But c’mon, man. Really? Some of you are already calling for Neal Brown’s job only 15 games into his tenure? A tenure that began with a bare cupboard due to Dana Holgorsen’s negligence.
If you are one of these individuals, chances are you don’t actually know football, or you really aren’t a fan. Coaching goes far beyond what goes down on the field, especially for Brown. While things are not as good as they have been before on the field, the recruiting trail is on fire for the Mountaineers. This is all due to the job by Neal Brown.
Complaining about Neal Brown means you are complaining about the program he is building. It means you are not happy with the state of the program. If you ask for my opinion, I truly can’t remember a time when things were trending in the right direction as much as they are right now under Brown. Those of you who are complaining about Neal Brown right now are simply not paying attention to the details.
Brown is building something special in Morgantown. It will take time, but he will bring the program to heights the Mountaineers haven’t seen in quite a while. It is time we as a fanbase take a step back, and allow him to do his job. Allow him to continue to build the program through recruiting, and a complete philosophy and culture change.
We have to TRUST THE CLIMB and quit complaining. Be happy we have a coach that is willing to put in the effort to make us great. Not only the effort, but the time. Yes, the time. It is only his second season, folks. Rome wasn’t built in a day – and Mountaineer Football will not be built in one season.
Trust Coach Brown.
