Both Sides of the Story

Jared Barber and Logan Moore have had far different paths to their current roles at West Virginia. Here, the two speak to their individual developments, their current approach to the game, and overcoming obstacles such as injuries and perceptions in earning playing time.

Barber, below, recorded an astounding 71 tackles, 43 solo, in just 10 games last season before suffering a knee injury. The senior, still working back from the injury, discusses his recovery, the timetable for a full return, his current physical abilities and what he expects from himself this season.

The 6-0, 233-pounder also details the differences in his assignments from the 3-4 look to the odd stack, and how the change from a defense for which he was originally recruited, to a 3-4, and back to the stack has affected him as a player.

Moore, who had among the most difficult skill level jumps of any transfer, speaks to his mental approach, how the game has slowed mentally for him, his comfort with Dana Holgorsen's scheme and his personal and team goals for the upcoming season.
