Offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson was pleased with the way the offense ran in Saturday's Gold-Blue Spring Game - especially the fact that West Virginia did not turn the ball over during the game. When it comes to starting spots, there are still a lot of positions up for grabs, but the coordinator saw his unit grow and accomplish many of the goals they wanted to heading into the summer.
In his first spring as a defensive coordinator, Tony Gibson wanted to bring the Mountaineer defense back to where it had been a few years ago when it ranked among the best in the country. While it's not where it wants to be quite yet, Gibson saw plenty of strides over the course of WVU's 15 practices with the changes they made.
And Joe DeForest's special teams unit was able to make plays and continue moving in the right direction from the first play of the game. The return team got a 99-yard return for a touchdown from Mario Alford, as well as another strong day from sophomore kicker Josh Lambert.
