Defensive coordinator Keith Patterson saw his team play with confidence in the first 30 minutes of the game. One bust let K-State score a touchdown, but other than the Mountaineers "looked like a football team". Then the roof caved in, and despite his best efforts a repeat of last week occurred.
Kevin White saw some of the same things happen on offense, and he said he might be more vocal this coming week to try to keep the Mountaineers' spirits up when things go wrong.
Finally, Shaq Rowell again preached staying the course and continuing to work, but he admitted that WVU is running out of chances to get his coveted bowl appearance.
