News: West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith is still learning thanks to a new system and has competition coming from freshman Paul Millard. Smith is the clear favorite to win the starting nod but head coach Dana Holgorsen seems to have no problem with keeping him on edge. The coach noted on Wednesday that Smith may need to be grounded a bit.
Analysis: Doesn't seem like this is an issue. More of making sure that the incumbent doesn't get complacent if anything. Smith will be fine and should excel in the new offense.
News: While many (myself included) have assumed that not only will West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith start but flourish under Dana Holgorsen, Paul Millard is still competing for the starting nod. The true freshman is working as if the job is still up for grabs, and whether or not that's true isn't as important as the benefits the WVU offense stands to reap from this.
Analysis: With just two quarterbacks on the roster it's good that Millard has taken on this mindset. The backup is just one play away from taking the field, and Millard competing in this fashion should make him more prepared if that time comes.
News: It's no secret that the hopes for West Virginia rest primarily on the shoulders of quarterback Geno Smith, who many expect to thrive in Dana Holgorsen's system. But Smith remaining on the field is even more important given the fact that WVU is down to just two quarterbacks: he and freshman Paul Millard
Analysis: For the first time in a couple seasons Smith enters fall camp at full strength, and he'll need to remain that way for the Mountaineers to make good on the prediction that they'll win the Big East. The good news for WVU: in 18 seasons Holgorsen has never lost a starting quarterback.
