Twitter Reaction: Mountaineer Nation Enjoys Watching Garrett Greene, WVU Finally Beat Sooners
MORGANTOWN, W.Va – It was a good day to be a Mountaineer, something that West Virginia football fans haven’t enjoyed enough of this season. WVU beat Oklahoma for the first time since the program joined the Big 12 a decade ago.
As usual, WVU fans were extremely vocal on Twitter throughout the game, especially when discussing Garrett Greene replacing starter JT Daniels and then leading the team to a big win with his legs and his arm.
Fans, media and even players took to Twitter to comment on the win and Greene’s impressive day.
Garrett Greene, that’s it. That’s the tweet. 🐐

Even on an ugly day and in the midst of a disappointing season, West Virginia fans singing Country Roads after a win remains the best tradition in college football.
No debates are welcome at this time.

The best seasons in WVU football history happened with dual threat QBs. Major Harris & Pat White.
Currently the best teams in the nation have dual threat QBs.
Nothing against JT Daniels, but it has to be Garrett Greene the rest of the way.

Can’t say enough about the performance by Garrett Greene today.
By passing for 138 yds & rushing for 119, he becomes the first @WVUfootball quarterback to rush and throw for 100 yards in a game since Skyler Howard on Nov. 21, 2015.
Just 2nd QB post-Pat White to do so. #WVU pic.twitter.com/hLYx0UZ5Up

Neal Brown owes an apology and then a life time of thank yous to Garrett Greene. GG single handily just secured Coach Browns position for another game.
