Which sounds like the better bet?
For the umpteenth time, do you realize that West Virginia's defense was one of the very worst in college football last year? Do you realize that Geno led the Mountaineers to leads with less than two minutes remaining against both TCU and OU only to watch the defense lose the game?
There wasn't much more Geno could do to try and win games than what he did. I hope you realize that there is two sides to a football game and the defense has to hold up their end of the bargain as well.
And, for the record, Geno and the Mountaineers did beat two Top 25 Big 12 teams in Baylor and Texas, in addition to Iowa State and Kansas. (And you should take a closer look at what Geno did in the double overtime TCU game and the one point, last minute loss to Oklahoma, who was ranked #12 at the time and who had the #8 ranked defense in college football.)
