Neal Brown has a mess on his hands in Morgantown. After accumulating a 22-25 record through four seasons, West Virginia will now have an uphill climb ahead of them if they want to keep Brown around in Morgantown.

With so many struggles, it is to be expected that not many will have faith in the Mountaineers going into the 2023 season. According to KSLSports.com, they will even be the WORST team in the Big 12 Conference going into the new campaign.

The website recently released their “Way-Too-Early” Power Rankings for all 14 Big 12 teams, and WVU was placed at the very bottom of the rankings.

14th out of 14 teams.

Here is what the website had to say about the program;

”The most notable move for the Mountaineers was a lack of a move. Head Coach Neal Brown is staying in Morgantown after a losing season. West Virginia has a new athletic director in Wren Baker. A winning season will likely be needed to hold off a change.”

KSLSports’ rankings are as follows –

1. Texas

2. TCU

3. Kansas State

4. Texas Tech

5. Baylor

6. Oklahoma

7. Kansas

8. UCF

9. Oklahoma State

10. Cincinnati

11. Iowa State

12. BYU

13. Houston

14. West Virginia


If the Mountaineers continue to lose, things will only continue to get worse for Neal Brown. Another rough start to the season could certainly cost him his job in 2023.
