The 2021 College Football season will be here before we know it. As we are fast approaching spring practice, many outlets are beginning to post their “way-too-early” predictions for the upcoming season. Recently, Pete Mundo of Heartland College Sports released his early rankings for the Big 12 Conference, and he has the Mountaineers coming in at number six.
Though Mundo seemed to be very high on WVU’s defense and the nine starters that return for the unit, he sees the WVU offense as an area of concern. More particularly, the quarterback position.
“But as exciting as (the defense) is, there remain serious concerns on offense, most notably at quarterback, where it is not clear if Jarret Doege is a quarterback who can lead the Mountaineers to becoming a competitor in the Big 12 Conference.”
Even as fans, the offense wasn’t always what we hoped it would be in 2020. Sure, there were some problems with the passing game, but they were not always to the fault of Doege. However, the Mountaineers will have two solid options behind Doege in Garret Greene and Will Crowder, so if the offense once again comes out sputtering, I trust that Neal Brown will shake it up to provide a spark.
