WVU's Bama Review

Pride in the attempt, disappointment in the attainment was the theme as West Virginia's players dissected the 33-23 loss to No. 2 Alabama.

Receiver Kevin White, who had a career day with nine catches for 143 yards and WVU's lone offensive touchdown, spoke about the multiple dropped passes and missed assignments from an offense that still showcased significant improvement from the middling unit of a season ago. White also noted that quarterback Clint Trickett was "great," and that this team should possess better rebound qualities than the inexperienced roster of 2013.

Running back Rushel Shell, who handled the first three carries of the game as WVU moved the ball well in the first series, details his battle with flu-like symptoms, his thoughts on the Mountaineers' power run game and his return to college football after sitting out a season due to NCAA transfer rules.

And finally, linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, who finished with 11 tackles, seven solo, details Alabama's physical play, WVU's ability to at least stem the Tide's flow at times and the most difficult aspect of matching the size and strength of the best power program in the nation over the last half decade.
