TCU Horned Frogs Preview | 23 Personnel Podcast – 229

Intro

Football

  • Final points from West Virginia  
    • Offense
      • Play calling and execution on final drive was so good
      • Cumbie’s goal line offense is beautiful
      • Liking how Donovan Smith is getting involved – can’t wait for the PA BOMB
      • Running 5 skill players in motion
      • Hello Freshman Jerrand Bradley, 2 catches for 18 & 12 yds
    • Defense
      • Limited big play
      • Played well enough without injured
      • WVU scored their first 2 second half TDs of the year (against FBS opponents)
      • Lack of a pass rush may have won you the game on the final play
    • Special Teams
      • Didn’t let Weston Wright get loose on a return
      • Executed a squib kick – forced Wright to make a decision on last kickoff
      • Lined up and kicked a FG with no timeouts in 13 seconds to end the first half (previous play ended at 0:16, kick was up at 0:03)
      • Fair catch every kickoff
    • Overall, Brown was outcoached
      • Probably overplayed L. Brown – looked gassed at the end
      • Burned a timeout on their opening drive second half after subbing in Green only to put Doege back in – could’ve used that TO later
      • Only 2 penalties all game – false start and facemask
      • Wright “downing” a squib kick
      • Doege not spiking the ball with 8-9 seconds left only to throw it out of bounds
      • Wells managed the clock at the end of each half almost perfectly
    • Score Prediction – Texas Tech +7; o/u 56.5; ESPN FPI Tech 27.4%
      • Spencer – WVU 26-23
      • Michael – WVU 28-27

        • #2 behind Zach Evans on All Purpose Yards (108.5 yd/game – Evans 134.5)
      • 5/7 on FG, so not much there – one miss was way off the mark against Cal
