Brown outlines plan for bye during weekly conference call

West Virginia’s second open week of the regular season couldn’t have come at a much better time.

Not only are the Mountaineers enduring a three-game losing streak, they’ve had to make numerous personnel changes due to a growing list of injuries.

During his weekly conference call Monday, head coach Neal Brown said he wants the Mountaineers to “reset” during the open week. Before they begin preparing for their Halloween showdown with undefeated Baylor, Brown wants to focus on self-improvement in several areas, including the ground game and red zone defense.

The head coach even indicated that the open week could lead to more changes in the lineup. 

“We’ve got five games left in our season, and we’re gonna reset it,” Brown said. “We’ve gotta get some things figured out on our end. We gotta make sure we have our best personnel on the field at all times.”

Brown added that he’ll provided an update on injured Mountaineers during his weekly press conference Tuesday. Linebacker Josh Chandler was added to the list of injured defensive players when he was knocked out of Saturday’s loss to Oklahoma.
