Mountaineer Legend Pat McAfee Details Disappointment in West Virginia Football



Pat McAfee

Having a prominent former Mountaineer so outspoken in the national media can be both a blessing and a curse for West Virginia football. And in this case, Pat McAfee just put some extra pressure on WVU’s current team.

McAfee, much like many members of Mountaineer Nation, is growing frustrated in direction of the program. In the midst of a segment during Saturday’s College GameDay, which the legendary WVU kicker and former All-Pro NFL punter joined full time earlier this season, McAfee wasted no time in proclaiming WVU as his most disappointing team this season.

“For me, personally, honestly, this is a real thing. The West Virginia Mountaineers have been the most disappointing team in my particular eyes. Because this has been four years in the Neal Brown’s ‘Trust the Process’ and I think they could have taken over the Big 12,” said McAfee.

McAfee’s comments simply echo what many fans and media have said about the lack of feeling as if the program is truly climbing now four years into tenure of a head coach. In fairness to Brown and WVU, the timing of McAfee’s remarks might be a bit strange since the Mountaineers are coming off a big win over Baylor.

Time will certainly tell if McAfee and other WVU fans are able to start feeling more confident in their beloved football team.
