A recap of the game as told through stats both in and out of the box score
3 – touchdown receptions for Brad Starks against UNLV
4 – receptions for Brad Starks against UNLV
0 – receptions for Brad Starks in 4 games leading up to UNLV
100 – yards receiving by Brad Starks against UNLV
-15 – yards attributed to Brad Starks in 4 games leading up to UNLV (10 yard illegal block penalty –Coastal Carolina, 5 yard false start penalty – Maryland)
12,6 – number of TD receptions and players who have caught a TD pass this season for WVU (Stedman Bailey and Starks with 3 each, Tavon Austin and Jock Sanders with 2 each, and Will Johnson and J.D. Woods with 1 each. Noel Devine has caught 16 passes, but none for TDs) With 12 TD passes this season, WVU has already matched last year’s season total.
2 – more TDs that WVU has scored with a hurry-up offense. By my unofficial count, 8or 9 of WVU’s TD drives have come in the hurry up offense (1 against Coastal Carolina, 2 against Marshall, 2 maybe 3 against Maryland, 1 against LSU, and 2 against UNLV)
0 – people who have given me a good reason why we don’t run the hurry up more. Look, I know there’s a time to milk the clock, but that time is when you’re up by more than two scores in the 4th quarter. We have a tough defense who I’m sure would much rather play with a lead than get to sit down for an extra couple minutes.
