The Shotgun/Throwdown: West Virginia has One of the Best Defenses in the Country (in the Second Half)

Welcome, By-Godders, to The Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU’s best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions.


If games started at halftime, West Virginia’s defense would be one of the nation’s most formidable units. The Mountaineer defense has yet to allow a second-half touchdown through three games.

Neal Brown shared his heartfelt condolences with the family of Alex Miller and the Roane County community on Tuesday. Miller, a senior football player from Roane County, passed away during his team’s game against Clay County last Friday.

Under Neal Brown, the West Virginia Mountaineers are starting to take advantage of playmaking opportunities on special teams.
