He’s got a good bloodline for sure.May 16, 2019 at 4:36 pm #90920
You have to have some skills to start as a true FR even if it’s in the MAC. I would think they want him to RS.May 16, 2019 at 5:06 pm #90922
My belief is that if Doege gets the NCAA waiver, he’ll get a major chance to play right away. WVU’s coaches may not have given up on Allison and/or Kendall, but if they had great confidence in them, I wouldn’t think they would have taken Doege.May 16, 2019 at 5:16 pm #90925
So was that our final scholarship? I thought we needed a defensive lineman!May 16, 2019 at 5:39 pm #90926
IF Doege enrolls at WVU this summer, then he will take the Mountaineers final scholarship for this class. Obviously if he wins his NCAA appeal to be eligible for the 2019 season and Neal Brown wants him to compete for the job right away, he has to enroll this summer and start working out. If Doege doesn’t win his appeal, and thus will have to sit out the 2019 season, then WVU can push his scholarship back to start with the August semester which would also allow West Virginia to push his scholarship back to count as part of the 2020 class, not 2019. But my impression is WVU thinks he’ll win his waiver and thus be eligible right away. That means he takes the 25th available scholarship in this class, so there would be no room for an additional scholarship player in the defensive line or anywhere else.May 16, 2019 at 5:51 pm #90927
Wow, the quarterback situation must be bad! Or we didn’t get any bites with defensive linemen on the transfer portal. Wow, just wow! I think this could be a very long season, hope I am wrong!May 17, 2019 at 5:41 am #90938
There is a lot of speculation here on my part, but if you don’t have at least two QB’s you think you can win with then QB will always be the biggest recruiting priority until you do.May 17, 2019 at 9:08 am #90945
He brings something that none of the other three guys bring, and that’s two seasons of actual game experience.
Who knows if he’s the best we have. But he won’t be folding under pressure because he’s nervous about facing live competition in front of a stadium full of fans.
The MAC has put out some pretty nice QBs over the years. I doubt Brown takes him just for depth.May 17, 2019 at 10:36 am #90953
Deuce has the measure of it here, I believe. In addition, competition forces the whole QB roster to improve.May 17, 2019 at 12:39 pm #90960
So is Trey Lowe going to be another William Crest or is baseball impeding his progress as a QB?May 17, 2019 at 5:18 pm #90992
Trey is still young, so not ready to say he can’t play yet. But he obviously didn’t get much time in the spring game, and that’s an indicator of current status.
He didn’t miss any football practices for baseball, so in that regard it didn’t impede him. IMO, he needs to pick one or the other and work on it — he’s too far away from PT right now to get by on just athletic ability.May 18, 2019 at 4:22 pm #91009
If Doege gets the waiver that will put 3 QB’s in the JR Class. IMO unless Brown’s staff thinks Doege has a very good shot at the starting position they should Blue Shirt him and slot him in for the SO class, let him study the playbook for 1 year and see what he can do to push Allison and Kendall in their SR year. In 2020 this would give us 2 SR’s , 1 JR, 1 SO and 1 FR schollies at QB. Spreads them out a little and gives you a little room if one of the underclassmen decide that the portal is the way to go.May 18, 2019 at 4:24 pm #91010
What do we need more? DL, WR or QB? Then the question is can we fill the DL or WR if they are the biggest need?May 18, 2019 at 4:35 pm #91012
You can never have too many QB’s in my opinion. We will always need D linemen, especially playing a 4 man front.May 18, 2019 at 4:39 pm #91013
I agree on both. Think about Lvlle a few years ago when they went thru 5 QB’s in one year. Down to their 5th string QB because of injuries. That’s a tough year.
And if we are going to play 4 Down DL as some of our D sets we don’t have enough on the roster at this time.May 19, 2019 at 9:26 am #91039
What do we need more? DL, WR or QB? Then the question is can we fill the DL or WR if they are the biggest need?
All of them. OK, I know that’s not an answer.
I would rate it QB, WR, DL.
Remember that while this is a four-man front in name, the bandit is as much or more of a linebacker than a lineman. That’s a generalization, but all of the players at that spot right now were LBs last year.May 19, 2019 at 10:50 pm #91050
Agree to disagree. I would rat our needs in this order.
#1.. DL #2.. WR #3.. QB.
We are very thin at DL and a couple injuries will be hard to overcome. I get it that this year’s D will be different. But everything starts up front. Then comes the WR’s. We have WR’s but they are very inexperienced. Talented but inexperienced. With Allison and Kendall and Lowe, we have 3 QB’s that have talent. May not have performed as well as expected in the Spring game, but they are very talented.May 20, 2019 at 2:16 pm #91080
My order for need:
WR – If it’s a high end starter that’s added.
DL – Depth admittedly is a concern, but at least there are three good ones for the two inside positions. The outside is fine.
QB – It would be nice to have Doege available to compete this fall, but how ready can he be at the start of the season considering he’ll be so new to the offense. Even if he can workout all summer, he won’t have taken a practice snap until only a few weeks before the opener. I have my doubt about whether you can get a starting QB ready that quickly.
So for me, best case is to add a very good wide receiver, let Doege redshirt (and blue shirt) and prayer that Donahue, Darius Stills and Dante Stills stay healthy in the d-line.May 20, 2019 at 4:01 pm #91084
Well, obviously I am in the minority here, and that’s ok.
I’ll leave it at this: I have seen and heard little that indicates that QB is a settled position. Certainly hope that further events proves that estimation incorrect.
