WVU To Face KU Challenges On Both Sides

Despite its talent edge, there are challenges on both sides of the ball for West Virginia. Here, cornerbacks coach Brian Mitchell and running backs mentor JaJuan Seider speak to those, and how their particular positions progressed, both during the bye week and as they ready for Kansas.

Mitchell, who said he couldn't recall a specific instance of facing a team with an interim coach, said he knew there were deficiencies in the Kansas offense, and how West Virginia would attack them. However, as per the typical approach, Mitchell declined to detail such. What the assistant did note was that Kansas' receivers can match the Mountaineers in terms of talent, and that WVU expects longer coverage assignments against mobile quarterback Montell Cozart.

Seider, meanwhile, has a solid challenge in dealing with an better-than-expected Kansas front seven. The Jayhawks will often slant and show both true and faux movement before the snap, attempting to create confusion along the opposing offensive line. Here, Seider discusses run and pass blocking, his expectations of KU's emotion and overcoming the potential early challenge of that aspect.
