WVU Reaction: TCU

West Virginia's defense played as well as could be expected with the situations presented it against a TCU offense that leads the nation in points per game. Here, the Mountaineer defenders speak to that effort, and what went wrong on the last drive in the Horned Frogs'

First, a notably dejected Tony Gibson dissects what happened on the final big pass play for TCU, when West Virginia blew a coverage. He also covers WVU's overall inability to finish, the mindset of the Mountaineers, and the "24 hour rule" of enjoying the win and working to get over a loss for just that amount of time as the Mountaineers have a road trip at Texas looming.

Edward Muldrow, who finished with four tackles, including a sack, discusses his disappointment, vows that West Virginia will finish better and not lose again, and surmises what went right and oh-so-wrong late.

K.J. Dillon, who had five tackles and a key interception, details the last drive, saying that WVU didn't communicate well from the sideline. The Mountaineers didn't get lined up correctly, and then blew a coverage. That's something Dillon notes rarely happens to this defense, and that West Virginia got caught by TCU's tempo.

Nick Kwiatkoski focuses on the positive, including WVU's ability to largely bottle Trevone Boykin, talks about knowing the offense wouldn't get a first down and that the defense knew it would have to come out one more time.
