Despite the West Virginia Football team losing on Saturday 30-24 to Maryland, West Virginia fans are not holding back on the changes they believe should be made.
After a loss against Maryland, many Mountaineer Fans had a lot to say regarding changes that they believe should be made moving forward in the season. Following the loss, many WVU fans displayed their inputs on the game on Twitter.
Many fans were disappointed in the first football game this season. Fans made some comments regarding changes they believe would benefit the team moving forward.
Starter quarterback Jarret Doege struggled during the season-opener against Taulia Tagovailoa, disappointing many WVU fans. The majority of people shared their opinions saying they want to change up the quarterback. Many comments were made saying they would like to see redshirt freshman Garrett Greene get a chance to play and to get a new face out on the field.
Other comments were made such as, senior running back Leddie Brown should get the ball more often during games. Resulting in more runs and potentially touchdowns.
Fans also criticized head coach Neal Brown, as the Mountaineers struggled against the Terrapins. Some fans even jumping off the “Trust the Climb” train.
Tagovailoa threw three touchdown passes, while also taking advantage of four WVU turnovers. These efforts made by Maryland were enough to defeat the Mountaineers.
“The biggest statistic that determines whether you win or lose is turnovers. We have four that went directly for ten points and they had zero, and when you have zero you normally don’t lose,” WVU head coach Neal Brown said.
The Mountaineers (0-1) got 280 yards passing from their redshirt senior quarterback Doege, who completed 24/40 passes. Doege was able to throw a pair of picks and WVU lost two fumbles, first by Brown late in the third quarter and the other by Winston Wright Jr. on a muffed punt.
Fans hope to see changes being made after taking the first loss of the season.
The WVU Mountaineers will move on to play Long Island University on Sept. 11th, at the Milan Puskar Stadium at 5 p.m. ET.
