We’re not really used to starting a podcast about West Virginia by discussing their defense, but it seemed like the right thing to do when The Smoking Musket editor Bart Keeler joined us this week. He explained how a strong line complements a very capable secondary, although the Mountaineers remain somewhat vulnerable to big plays.

Naturally, he had a few more complaints and criticisms of West Virginia’s offense, despite the stellar play of running back Leddie Brown. K-State fans will not-so-fondly remember quarterback Jarrett Doege from last season and we discussed how perhaps those bad memories will help the Wildcats avoid a letdown caused by looking ahead to next week’s showdown vs. Oklahoma State.

Stay tuned towards the end for some fun, wide-ranging conversations on the state of sports in a pandemic, and be sure to follow Bart on Twitter @BartimusPrime19. Please be nice. He’s an Atlanta sports fan. You should also follow @smokingmusket for smart, often hilarious Twitter content about a wide variety of things and check out the work of Bart and others at The Smoking Musket.
