WVU Head Coach Neal Brown claims that we have a winner in the quarterback competition. However, he will not be publicly naming the winner prior to their season opening game at Penn State.
Morgantown, WV – As we reported yesterday, a winner has emerged in WVU’s quarterback competition. According to a reliable source, Garrett Greene is expected to make his third career start against Penn State on September 2nd. However, following Neal Brown’s comments about the competition earlier this evening, fans and the media will have to wait until game day to learn who officially won the job.
Per a tweet sent out by Nick Farrell of Gold and Blue Nation, Brown has stated in his weekly press conference that a decision has been made on who will start at quarterback for the Mountaineers. While he claims that the team knows who the starter is, he will not publicly name them prior to their September 2nd contest against Penn State.
Neal Brown on the #WVU quarterback competition:
Head coach says a decision has been made at the position, but he may not announce it publicly before the Penn State game. "I don't think it really helps us to share a whole lot."
Adds that the players themselves know who QB1 is.

According to sources close to the situation, Greene was clearly the better quarterback during WVU’s scrimmage on Saturday. While nobody was quick to deem Nicco Marchiol terrible in any way, the buzz surrounding Garrett Greene indicates that he has a much better control of the offense, and the team.
