Which, of course, begged the question on Monday, is he antsy yet or perhaps he's actually picked a guy and just doesn't want it known?
"No, I haven't picked one yet," Holgorsen said. "I'm not as antsy as I thought I'd be. They've kind of risen their games a little bit and they're battling."
So what's he seen that makes the decision so hard? Well, it's pretty much exactly what one would expect - the familiarity of the two-year backup Millard with the offense and the general coolness of Trickett, who was under the kind of fire at Florida State that Millard has never encountered.
"They both bring probably a little bit something different to our offense,'' Holgorsen said. "Paul knows the offense better. He's a little more comfortable with the communication. He's getting the calls from me and kind of knows where we want him to go with the ball a little bit better just based on the amount of reps hat he's had in this specific offense.
"Clint's seasoned. He has more game experience. He has really good leadership skills and remains calm under pressure. He keeps the play alive pretty good.''
Holgorsen in the past has always been adamant that he wouldn't play two quarterbacks. Perhaps he won't this year, either. But to listen to him, it seems that picking one or the other still might take a while. And even then, the decision might not be clear.
"They both bring something different to the table,'' Holgorsen said. "Ultimately it's about the guy that's not going to make mistakes, which is kind of what our offense is about - distributing the ball to a bunch of different skill guys based on what the defense is giving us.
"It might take some game experience to figure out which is the guy. It may be a situation where they complement each other and we continue to rep both of them all year. We don't know yet.''
