Nothing is going right for the West Virginia football team these days.
The Mountaineers, who won their first five games, are now riding a four-game losing streak. They are losing players, too.
Junior Ivan McCartney left the team Monday, becoming the second wide receiver to walk away from the Mountaineers in less than a week.
Freshman Travares Copeland also recently quit the team.
The school announced McCartney's departure, saying it was for personal reasons. Coach Dana Holgorsen did not comment, though he had been feisty when questioned about McCartney's absence from Saturday's game, a 55-34 loss at Oklahoma State.
According to the West Virginia MetroNews Network, Holgorsen gave two one-word answers about McCartney, then squawked when pressed on the subject.
"Why are you worried about it?" the coach told a reporter, the MetroNews Network reported. "I'm worried about the guys that are here wanting to play. There's a whole lot more important things to talk about than one person."
McCartney made nine catches for 112 yards this season. He was fifth on the team in receiving yards.
Copeland compiled 10 receptions for 55 yards before his departure.
