Geno Smith Up And Decides To Be Perfect
Be a little more like West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith today, everybody:
"He had five incompletions and we talked about how we had to play with a faster tempo and other adjustments," [WVU quarterbacks coach Jake] Spavital said. "He told me he wasn't going to throw another incomplete pass."
Spavital wasn't worried about that. He was instead concerned with a three-and-out on the team's fifth possession or the drive that followed and ended with time running out to end the half. Two hours later, though, Smith's words had Spavital's attention.
"He went out there and went 11-for-11 in the second half," Spavital said. "I really only thought he was joking about it."
