West Virginia's Geno Smith Will Have Surgery; Shawne Alston Facebooks During Bowl Game

Colin Dunlap of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith will undergo surgery in January to correct yet another stress fracture in his left foot.

Dunlap says Smith played the whole season for the Mountaineers with the injury. This is the second year in a row that he has had stress fracture troubles with his left foot.  Smith passed for 2,763 yards and 24 touchdowns this season for the Mountaineers, who ended their season with a 23-7 loss to N.C. State in the Champs Sports Bowl Tuesday night in Orlando.

Speaking of that game, Dunlap is also reporting that running back Shawne Alston admitted afterward to posting " 2nd half is da best half!!! Let's go!!" on his Facebook during halftime. He's probably hoping coach Bill Stewart's internet ignorance extends to Facebook, or he might be getting a nasty wall post pretty soon, or worse, a poke.
