Issues Aplenty

WVU fullback Matt Lindamood was among the first to admit that Friday was not the Mountaineer offense's best day, as it was largely dominated by the defense during an officiated scrimmage. But the Parkersburg native expressed complete confidence that the offense will bounce back quickly.

"Oh, we're going to be back," he said without even the slightest bit of hesitation. "We've got a good offense. We've got good coaches. They're going to coach us up, and we're going to be good."

"I was just talking to [inside receivers] coach [Shannon] Dawson, and he said, ‘We're just what, 12 practices into the spring?' Sometimes, it's not going to mesh right . You've just got to keep moving forward, keep pushing hard."

Few would have described the Mountaineer offense as "good" after Friday's scrimmage, which was marred by penalties and other issues, allowing the West Virginia defense to hold the upper hand all day long.

But barring those self-inflicted wounds, the potential was very much there, according to Lindamood.

"Just to be honest, there were too many mental mistakes," he said. "We were playing hard, physical football like Mountaineers should. But there were missed assignments. We weren't communicating well. It just didn't seem to mesh together."

The former walk-on touched on those issues, as well as the role he can and will play in Dana Holgorsen's offense at WVU, in this interview, conducted just after Friday morning's scrimmage.
