Trickett has played just those two series against William & Mary this season, but that's likely to change Saturday when West Virginia faces Georgia State, perhaps the worst FBS team in the country. Against the Panthers, Holgorsen may well be able to experiment and see what his quarterbacks can do. And he made it clear that nothing at the position has been settled after two games, even though Millard has taken almost every snap.
"It's open competition and it's going to remain that way,'' Holgorsen said. "We'll evaluate Paul and see where we're at with it. I'm not happy with seven points, but I felt we did some good things periodically.
"Guys have got to make plays, too. He put the ball there for some guys to make some plays and we didn't. So, we have to take all of those things into consideration and evaluate it and see where we are at. Maybe Ford [Childress] gets reps next week. Maybe Clint gets reps next week. I don't know. That's why we practice and that's what we'll do."
BRIEFLY: After missing the first game, junior college wide receiver Kevin White made his debut and had a team-leading seven catches for 80 yards. But his best play turned out to be his worst when he fumbled at the end of what would have been a third-and-20 conversion at the OU 15.
"We had the fumble, which was devastating, but he did catch the ball and slipped a tackle or two every now and then,'' Holgorsen said of White. "And we need that to happen more. I told guys all week about picking your feet up and having some yards after the catch and having some yards after contact."
Needless to say, Georgia State coach Trent Miles called it "really embarrassing.''
