Premium Choice

Shannon Dawson said that opportunities to exploit Alabama's defense were at a "premium" because of the Tide's fundamental nature and polished talent. The Mountaineers, Dawson explained, must choose wisely when trying to threaten the defense.

Here, Dawson details his offense's ability to match-up against the Tide, the various problems a combination of fantastic skill and solid execution present, and how the Mountaineers must not always take the bait of trying to push the ball where the defense wants it - namely challenging good corner play deep despite the low percentages of success.

Also, senior associate head coach Tom Bradley, entering his 35th season in the college game, detailed the exceptional fundamental play of Alabama, how the Tide didn't beat itself, and the primary concerns of facing a potential platoon system at quarterback, as well as the physical backs with which WVU must contend.
