QB Change Coming for WVU?

WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen hinted in his presser today that a change could be coming at quarterback. He made it clear that if a change did occur, it would likely be freshman Chris Chugunov.

Halfway through the season the Mountaineers stand at 3 – 3. The first two losses to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State could be attributed directly to miscues by QB Skyler Howard.

Hitting only 50% of his passes to open receivers also kept Baylor’s explosive offense on the field. Howard is an admirable player with the heart of a lion but lacking in either hand/eye coordination or depth perception. He makes long throws too late, and simply struggles with intermediate passes. For the sake of this season, Coach Holgorsen’s job and a winning record it is truly time for a change.

In the three losses suffered so far this year, what if you could go back and simply switch QBs with the opponent? Their QB would play for WVU and Howard would lead the opponent. That would likely make WVU either 5 – 1 or possibly 6 – 0.

Changing no other player on the team causes that much of a turnaround. At the halfway mark of the season and enjoying a bye week, the potential solution is obvious.
