WVU Offense Takes Final Opener Look, Moves On

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The tape revealed what was apparent to the naked eye. West Virginia's offense misssed a few plays in the passing game, but was able to operate well enough for a passing grade for the season-opener. Here, Skyler Howard, Daikiel Shorts and Lonnie Galloway take one final look back - and then preview the upcoming contest with Liberty.

Howard, who threw for 359 yards and hit on 65 percent of his passes, likely could have been at 75-80 percent if not for a few misfires. Here, the quarterback details his game and the missed plays, and what adjustments were made at the half before taking a look at Liberty's 4-3 defensive set and the problems it could cause.

Next, Daikiel Shorts delves into the passing game, his impressions of Shelton Gibson and Jovon Durante, and how he believes the slot wideouts performed after detailed film review. Shorts also speaks to Liberty's defense, and the improvements the Mountaineers must make to themselves entering the second game of the season.

And finally, Lonnie Galloway examines the play of Gibson and Howard, and acknowledges the challenges that await in trying to refocus a team after the emphasis on looking at the first opponent for several weeks. Galloway also gives some Xs and Os on the Flames, who held Delaware State to just 13 points in their first game.
