With the season being almost ¾ over, identities are almost set.
Check it out:
Kansas State and West Virginia have a lot more in common than just two winning football programs with sub-.500 records looking for a win this weekend.
It’s now two months into the season and both are still searching for offensive identities, and a lot of that can be attributed to the usage of multiple quarterbacks, says West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen.
“You lose a quarterback of the caliber of what they had last year (Collin Klein) and it will take some time before you find some rhythm,” he said. “They have been searching with the two kids they have been playing.”
Holgorsen has tried three different starters so far himself with mixed results, although Florida State transfer Clint Trickett seems to have settled in as the regular now after his 254-yard, one-touchdown performance in last weekend’s loss to Texas Tech.
Trickett led West Virginia (3-4) to a 30-21 upset victory over then-11th-ranked Oklahoma State back on Sept. 28 by passing for 309 yards and a touchdown – WVU’s best performance by a quarterback this year.
