Now that the 2020 regular season has concluded, it is time to review the season that was for the Mountaineers. One of the most pivotal players for WVU this season, Jarret Doege, is a lot to unpack in terms of what he accomplished over the course of the last nine games.
Today. we take a look at the statistics of Doege, and give our opinion on what he must improve on, and what areas he is okay in.
- Passing Yards: 2,428
This is actually a stat that is pretty solid for Doege. Nobody expected him to light the world on fire passing, and the 269 yards per game seems like the perfect total for him. He wasn’t the best, and he wasn’t the worst, but he did the most with what he had. Yardage wise, Doege has been okay.
- Passing TDs: 13
This is one stat that needs improvement for Doege. In nine games in 2019, Austin Kendall had one less touchdown pass than Doege. 2020 just wasn’t the year for Doege to excel in this field. If given a longer offseason, and season itself, this stat would likely increase for Doege. We’re okay with it in 2020, but it could always be better.
- Interceptions: 3
This is one thing I absolutely love about Doege. He never turns the ball over. Only tossing three interceptions in nine games is damn impressive. If he can keep it up next year, the team will be fine.
- QBR: 66.2
This is one stat I don’t give a rat’s ass about. Sorry, but the quarterback rating is not important whatsoever. Pay attention to the important stuff.
- Completion percentage: 64,2%
It could always be better, but it’s solid. His career percentage has always hovered around the 60s, and we should expect it to do so.
- Yards Per Attempt: 7.0
This is a very exceptional stat. It’s not a career high for Doege (7.3 at BGSU in 2018), but it is still solid nonetheless.
- Win-Loss Record: 5-4
Doege is now 7-5 as a starter at WVU, but 5-4 in 2020. Any winning record under a new coaching staff is acceptable. He will even have the opportunity to pass Will Grier’s 15-wins in 2021. Doege is a proven winner in the Gold and Blue.
