Heartland College Sports has rated WVU’s quarterback room as the worst in the Big 12.
Morgantown, WV – The disrespect keeps coming in waves for the Mountaineers.
After being picked to finish last in the Big 12, a feat which Neal Brown called “lazy reporting,” the team’s most important position group has now been ranked at the bottom of the conference.
Bryan Clinton of Heartland College Sports released his rankings of the Big 12 quarterbacks earlier this morning. WVU’s quarterback room, which currently features a battle between Garrett Greene and Nicco Marchiol, was selected as the WORST in the Big 12.
RANKING the Big 12 QUARTERBACKS heading into 2023:

Here is what Clinton had to say about the Mountaineer signal-callers:
“West Virginia enters the season with two real options at quarterback: Garrett Greene and redshirt freshman Nicco Marchiol. Greene has spent three seasons in Morgantown, and appeared in nine games last season, completing 55.1% of his passes for 493 yards and five TDs to three INTs, adding 276 yards and five scores on the ground. Marchiol, on the other hand, appeared in two games as a freshman and completed 4-13 attempts for 61 yards and one score. Greene looks like the starter for now, but will need to hold off Marchiol who looks to have the better arm.”
*He expects Garrett Greene to be the starting quarterback with Nicco Marchiol filling the backup role.*
This will ultimately serve as more bulletin board material for West Virginia. Neal Brown and the Mountaineers made it known at Big 12 Media Days that they were not happy with the media’s coverage of their team during the offseason.
This will be no different.
With Garrett Greene and Nicco Marchiol being already passionate players, this will only add fuel to their fire going in 2023.
WVU kicks off the 2023 season at Penn State on September 2nd. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. on NBC.
