West Virginia must shore up its tackling if it wants to stop TCU

West Virginia has been atrocious in the tackling department as of late.

According to Dominic Dichiacchio of BlueGoldNews.com, West Virginia’s defensive coordinator Tony Gibson says that his team has been focused on tackling for the past week.

This is a wise move, because plays like the ones that happened at Kansas last week can’t happen any more. The Jayhawks rushed for a whopping 367 yards on 50 attempts.


If you think that TCU won’t just pound the ball if West Virginia shows that it hasn’t improved, think again. This TCU team can run the ball extremely well, and it would shock no one if they came out with Kenedy Snell and Darius Anderson and just ran the ball 50 times.

The Mountaineers had two weeks to recover and prepare for this game, and they had better bring their A game if they want to shut down the TCU running game and have a chance at winning.
