Player of the Week
October 3rd 2012 17:24
45-51 (88.2%), 656 yards, and 8 touchdowns; that are the stats for West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, last week! That's a 3 game stat line that he just decided to do all in one day. The 45 completions, 656 passing yards, and 8 passing td's are all school records. Smith also added 31 rushing yards on 5 attempts making a school record for total yards as well.
The 6-3 Senior out of Miami is having a season for the ages. Over 83% of his passes this year have found their target, while 20 have been for scores and 0 to the other team. Add the 1728 passing yards (10.23 per attempt) and you get a quarterback rating of a ridiculous 208.4. Can anyone say Heisman? There's a whole lot of people in Morgantown screaming it.
Everytime the stat line from Saturday's win over Baylor came across the bottem of ESPN I just laughed. I just couldn't believe it, and Geno had to do it because his defense gave up 63 points. This week will be a much bigger test as he leads his #8 Mountaineers into Austin to face #11 Texas. The Longhorns have the best defense in the Big 12 and will look to get after Smith in the backfield. They have not played quite up to expectations though, so now would be a great time to prove their worth by stopping/limiting the Heisman frontrunner.
