In search of a strong finish
WVU played 59 players last week against JMU and even more against Marshall in the opening blowout, which kind of gave them an excuse for not finishing the game strongly.
It’s an excuse Holgorsen won’t accept.
“A lot of people, even myself, have been guilty of saying ‘Well it’s just the young kids in the fourth quarter and we’re not doing a good job of finishing games.’ We gave up the touchdown in the fourth quarter last week. There were six missed tackles, and offensively for the second game in a row, we didn’t score in the fourth quarter with our young guys,” he said.
“It’s not all just young guys. There are some experienced guys out there as well, and I don’t care who they are, their job is to move the ball or tackle people. It’s great to play those guys in situations, but it needs to look better than it has the past two fourth quarters.”
