Tony Pierson jumps to top of WVU, season rankings


1. Tony Pierson: Rushed for 30 yards and had a 42-yard reception, which on this day was enough to make him the team’s best player. Plus, he returned a kick 26 yards.

2. Michael Cummings: Ran the option well, completed 6 of 11 passes for 76 yards and rushed for 42 yards on 11 carries.

3. James Sims: Yards were difficult to come by, and he was limited to a season-low 57, but that was enough to give him 1,013 for a season in which he played nine games.

4. Ben Heeney: Football-seeking missile had a 7-yard sack and was in on four tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

5. Tyler Patmon: Was beaten his share of times but also had an interception and eight tackles, including a sack and another tackle behind the line of scrimmage.

6. Bradley McDougald: Had eight solo tackles and assisted on four others.

7. Ben Goodman: Defensive end moves well. He got behind the line of scrimmage for a pair of tackles and looked good doing it.

8. Jimmay Mundine: Broke free down the middle of the field on first play from scrimmage but was overthrown by Dayne Crist. Had the throw been on target, Mundine would have given the team a big spark.

9. Andrew Turzilli: Had a 41-yard reception.

10. Nick Prolago: Booted a 32-yard field goal through the uprights and made his extra point. Also did a nice job of kicking away from Tavon Austin, who did not have any returns.

Open up the offense bring in some wr's that want the ball and Cummings to Pierson is just as potent as Smith to Austin

Not good when for the season's rankings you have to go all the way down to #12 to find the highest rated QB.

Totally pointless article. And no, I didn't have to read it to come to that surmisal.

"Pointless" was KU football was this season.

Absolutely pathetic and inexcusable display of coaching, playing, and recruiting.

And we're shocked that we can't fill the stands or get students to stay past half. Simple fact, if you can't win or even compete (which we've proved we can do neither), you don't deserve fans. Tough pill to swallow, I'm aware, but such is life.

At this pace, we're going to be lucky if the football program can even afford a coaching staff of any magnitude or even a grounds crew a few years down the road.

And who do we blame this on? Not Mangino, Perkins, Turner Gill, or even Charlie Weis himself. This is Zenger's fault for bringing Weis, a proven unsuccessfull college coach, to this program. Yes, Gill had to go. But Weis was an unrational and expensive hire.

I had hoped, based on how he spoke. But a 1-11 record is a 1-11 record regardless of the spin. Welcome back to the Terry Allen days, folks. They are here again.

I hope you're right my friend.

I suppose the Terry Allen comment was a bit harsh. And I'll be there as a season ticket holder yet again; right along side you.

But synicism is underrated, ralster. I will not defend what doesn't deserve to be defended. Turner Gill was fired for delivering performances like you witnessed this past Saturday.

Getting pounded like that two weeks in a of which at home Senior Night against the weakest opponent in your conference inexcusable.

And as a Williams Fund contributor, you deserve accountability. That's your right. Going 1-11, regardless of whether it's a "building" year or not, is embarrassing.

It appears I've jumped ship, but I assure you I haven't. I just want those responsible to acknowledge their role in what was, as far as I'm concerned, the second worst season in the past two decades. Second only to last year, when we were historically humiliated.

Weis has delivered nothing except big talk and a better GPA. Not to undervalue improved grades, but unfortunately, that's not going to make boosters happy.

I apologize for the tone, but I'm fed up with this crap.
