--Hurt locker room and they competed. Everybody that played competed and he is proud of how they played. They're based on outcomes and he knows that but he is proud with how they played. People can be frustrated with him but there shouldn't be any ill-will with the kids. Defensively West Virginia played well in the second half. After Ruffin's pick that was the most disappointing drive of the season because they didn't even give themselves a chance to go for in on fourth down. He is disappointed, but happy with how they played.

--TCU does a really good job with making adjustments in the second half. West Virginia got away from the run some in the second half because the room is beat up. Donaldson got hurt bad in the second half. Johnson is not playing full speed. They had some answers and played more of an eight man box. West Virginia ran as well against them in the first half as anybody did all year.

--They had a couple negative runs but the one on the last drive killed them because they lost yards.

--Third down should have been run on the goal line fade. On fourth down, he wishes somebody would explain what pass interference is. He is really confused about what pass interference is.

--Casey Legg is one of the best onside kickers but that was one of the least successful they've had. It wasn't a good kick.

--Third down JT Daniels checked out. They wanted to go for it on fourth down. Brown felt like touchdowns were going to win it.

--Brown said the fumbled punt got called the right way. He wasn't sure what they were actually reviewing. That's the drive that bothers me.

--The run game is hard because when those running backs go out the other ones just don't have a lot of practice time. Schematically when they started playing the eight man front West Virginia went to some zone schemes. They ran through.

--West Virginia didn't play well enough in the pass game in the second half. They had some things open.

--Gmiter he isn't sure and Nester they think he will play next week. TCU got more pressure in the second half with a three man rush.

--West Virginia lost Davis Mallinger early in the game and they put in Raleigh Collins and Naim Muhammad and it doesn't look good for Mallinger. The frustrating ones are the long runs and they didn't leverage the football. West Virginia blitzed more than they did.

--Donaldson has a lower leg injury and he doesn't think it will be good.

--It's tough to throw Jaylen Anderson into the game in that situation. He got forced into action and you have to be ready.

--At the end of the game against Texas Tech they didn't play as hard as they should have but that hasn't been the case. West Virginia competed today, they are hurt and there is a high level of investment. The outcome isn't what they wanted. They didn't play well enough to win but they played hard enough.

Donaldson probably done for the season. I don't blame him either. We are going to be a 4-8 team, no bowl game, and just guys playing for a new spot in the transfer portal next year anyways because the underclassman will see the writing on the wall that this staff is getting broken up and/or fired, so they will jump ship. We are likely to be in for a 5-8 year cycle of really bad seasons.

I caught a little bit of his pc but couldnt stand hearing his dumbass voice so I changed it pretty fast. In the minute I heard he was saying something like that no one should be mad at the players because they played hard. That just shows hot out of touch with reality he is. I've never heard a single fan blame the players for this pathetic shitshow. We blame you Neal, you fking douchebag lol. What an idiot. He's the Nancy Pelosi of collage coaches. Send him home tomorrow.
