On an unrelated note, would it be possible to change the title of the thread to 2013? I goofed on the year.
I think it had more to do with the QBs, although Millard has likely entrenched himself as the starter. Two things weigh in:
1. WVU has nobody to step up at wide receiver to replace Tavon and Stedman. I liked the looks of Kevin White at the spring game, but he has been hurt of late and didn't see the field against William & Mary. Someone is going to have to step up at receiver at some point this season.
2. Holgorsen has running backs to work with, a first since he has been at WVU. When Andrew Buie is no longer with the team and Dustin Garrison is seen in late duty, that should say something. Charles Sims, who played at Houston under Holgorsen, could be the real deal and with WVU's lack of receivers, you could see more running in the near future. Dreamus Smith and Wendell Smallwood could also help shoulder the load for Sims as well.
I'm interested in seeing how the Oklahoma game matches up, a freshman QB for the Sooners, six DB defense (Louisiana Monroe runs an air raid and was shut out last week), and if Holgorsen was really running the ball to keep from tipping his hand and giving Stoops game film for this week.
