Poll: How Would You Grade 2023 as Whole for WVU Football?

Now that the dust has settled on 2023 for the WVU football program, we want to ask you, the fan, your thoughts about what unfolded. How would you grade the season as a whole?

West Virginia finished with a 9-4 (6-3) overall record and capped off the year with a Duke’s Mayo Bowl win over North Carolina. What happened during the 2023 season earned head coach Neal Brown more time to continue building his climb of the Mountaineers.

While some will bring up the fact WVU was able to avoid playing Texas, the eventual Big 12 champion and College Football Playoff team, and even Kansas and Iowa State too, Brown and the program will argue that they did face more “Power 5” opponents than most and one of them was a perennial top 15 team in Penn State.

The WVU football program can brag about helping to mold some transfers who became contributors to the success on and off the field. Beanie Bishop went from an afterthought as far as an impact player to a consensus All-American with NFL hopes. He has even publicly credited the coaching staff for making him a better player and putting him in position to be a star. Kole Taylor jumped from the SEC to the Big 12 and was finally allowed to be the pass catcher he knew he could be.

West Virginia is also laying groundwork for 2024 by retaining key players and bringing others into the fold.
