"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."
