Big Play Woes

West Virginia defensive backs coach David Lockwood had his work cut out for him after the Mountaineers yielded a couple of big passing plays in the loss to USF. Lockwood explained his reaction to long passing gains and how he adjusted the secondary to meet those challenges.

In this postgame interview, David Lockwood discussed the process of restoring the confidence of his players after the Bulls struck for several long gains in the passing game. He also described the adjustments made by the coaching staff.

One of the mose significant of those was moving to a wide and short side of the field scheme, where Keith Tandy handled the wide side while Brandon Hogan defended the short side. That was a difference from the past two seasons, where WVU's corners always played on the same side of the field.
