Morgantown, West Virginia – Following West Virginia’s frustrating, embarrassing loss at home to Kansas, Neal Brown was depressed, dejected and apologetic in his post-game conference.
“First I want to apologize to the fans. On a night that should have been a celebration for West Virginians with Bob Huggins entering the Hall of Fame, it was disappointing.
We didn’t play well enough defensively to win the game. We didn’t get off blocks well. We didn’t tackle well. We played with a lack of confidence in the second half in the secondary. That’s not how we play West Virginia defense these past three seasons.
I understand the disappointment. I get the frustration. I promise there’s no one more frustrated than me. They showed up and were loud. I get the frustration. But we’re two games in and it’s a long season. We’re going to get better and we’re going to get back to work tomorrow. I get the frustration but it’s not from lack of effort.”
