Otherwise? We saw kicker Josh Lambert miss his first two field goals - from 41 and 48 yards - before converting his last two from 39 and 47.
We saw defensive back-turned-receiver Vernon Davis get more touches than expected, one on an end around.
We saw the diamond formation with Smith, Garrison and Cody Clay.
We did see a glimpse of last season's Mountaineer defense. Childress hit a wide-open Jordan Thompson in the middle of the field for a 65-yard scorch and score.
"We missed a few tackles," said safeties coach Tony Gibson. "We have to improve on that."
We saw Travis Bell, who was moved to cornerback two days previous.
And we heard the jarring sounds of the "Air Raid" siren and train whistle.
Otherwise, there wasn't a lot to report. A nice crowd of approximately 8,000 attended. Some cash was donated to the WVU Children's Hospital.
I can offer a prediction: Clay, the George Washington High grad, will be a fan favorite along the lines of former fullback Owen Schmitt.
But not much emerged from the Gold-Blue game to ratchet the low expectations for the Mountaineers heading into next season.
Maybe Trickett will join the Mountaineers and help.
The incoming receivers could certainly make a difference.
Ditto the linebackers.
"The team we field in September is going to look a lot different," Holgorsen said.
As for that team performing on Saturday, though ... well, it did resemble a football team.
