Tom Bradley: WVU Faces Tough Test In Kansas State

PITTSBURGH (KDKA 93-7 The Fan)- The West Virginia Mountaineers football team sits at 6-4 after losses to TCU and at Texas.

West Virginia Senior Associate Head Coach Tom Bradley joined Bob Pompeani in advance of their game Thursday night against Kansas State.

"It's another one of those 36 point a game teams. Well coached (with) Bill Snyder. If you watch them, they don't make mistakes. They're solid, they're not going to beat themselves. We've got to go beat them," Bradley said.

The Mountaineers are coming off of a 33-16 loss at Texas Nov. 8. Bradley told Pompeani that the struggles resulted from a slow start.

"We just didn't come out of the gate, and we had to. We got behind, and put ourselves in that situation and we never recovered from it. So it's once again, it's a learning experience with your football team, and we just try to hopefully have gotten that across to them and it's kind of like baby steps as they say, and let's see where we go from here," Bradley said.

Pompeani asked about wide receiver Kevin White, who has eight games with at least 100 receiving yards. Bradley said that White is a very special person.

"You're going to hear his name called in the first round of the (NFL) draft, I'll be shocked if it isn't. But he's everything you want in a football player," Bradley said. "You really couldn't look at a game and say 'Boy, Kevin didn't have a good game' because he does. He plays hard, he practices hard."
