Morgantown, West Virginia – Following West Virginia’s disappointing 30-24 loss at Maryland in their season opener, Neal Brown discussed the quarterback situation for the Mountaineers going into this weekend’s game against Long Island University.
Brown said of Doege’s performance: “He’s got to eliminate negative plays. He had 12 bad plays (out of 62). You say that’s not too bad, but that’s 1 out of 5 because we only had 62 countable snaps. It was a mixed bag.”
Brown continued: “But I do think he did some good things. The thing he’s got to get better at is he can’t make the bad plays worse.”
Brown was clearly watching a different game than the rest of us. Although he did promise to “play some of our younger guys”, it appears that Jarret Doege will continue to be the starting quarterback for the West Virginia Mountaineers for the foreseeable future.
