Well, Mountaineer fans are watching in horror as Marshall completely controls this football game. Bill Stewart went for it on 4th-and-1 from the Marshall 9 yard line, but Ryan Clarke couldn’t convert. I like the call, honestly, but Clarke just couldn’t pick it up. Okay, fine, it is what it is.
On the very next play Marshall QB Bryan Anderson found WR Aaron Dobson for a 96-yard touchdown, putting the Herd up 14-3. Again, these things happen, I still am not totally aghast.
What’s terrifying me is that the Marshall front four is having their way with the Mountaineer offensive line. This could be a long day for Geno. Marshall’s punting now, and the ‘Eers will get the ball back with about six minutes left in the half. Unfortunately, they’ll be starting at the 1. The horror continues….
