08/13/2011 - AREAS OF CONCERN: The middle of the defense is shaky as defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel has to replace all-Big East NG Chris Neild and MLBs Anthony Leonard and Pat Lazear. The men expected to lessen the loss, MLB Branko Busick and NG Jorge Wright, both were arrested on gun charges, Busick dismissed from the team and Wright suspended, compiling that problem. The next biggest area of concern is the offensive line, which did not perform well and now much so without senior starter LG Josh Jenkins, injured in the spring game and out for the year after surgery to stabilize kneecap. Jeff Braun moves from RT to LG to fill Jenkins spot and huge Quinton Spain, 330 pounds, moves in at right tackle. WVU has only two scholarship quarterbacks, one a true a freshman, so they must find a way to keep them healthy. - The Sports Xchange
