We have reached the mid-point of the season for the West Virginia Mountaineers. So at this time in the season, how does each position for WVU rank in performance? Changes can always be made due to countless reasons and there is always room for improvement so with that in mind, let’s take a quick look at how each position on the field for the West Virginia Mountaineers is performing so far. Work with me here, our season has been less than stellar but I’ll never give up on my ‘Eers!
Paul Millard has led WVU to one of its victories against William and Mary early in the season and even though Dana Holgorsen has yet to name a go-to guy I would say Millard has what it takes to lead the Mountaineers to the W. However, Clint Trickett has also performed pretty well for a new guy. His terminology has been iffy at times on offense but who really cares as long as he gets the job done? Millard has a higher completion percentage than Trickett at 61.2 to 41.2 but Trickett did pull off the upset victory against Oklahoma State. I’ll leave Ford Childress out of the current discussion since he’s out for the season due to an injury.
With this in mind, I’d say the QB’s for the West Virginia Mountaineers rank at around a grade C. What do ya’ll think?
