I assume even the QB spot is open since Brown said everyone, except McKivitz. The QB did make some incorrect reads and poor throws, although he was under duress a lot.September 11, 2019 at 4:01 pm #98057
He singled out a couple of positions outside the O-line.
Winston Wright getting a look at Bush’s spot (H??)
Ryan getting looks at slot where Simmons is the starter – I like this thought getting the bigger more physical receiver in the slot and perhaps moving the speedier guy back outside. Right now we need possession type catches, with that maybe some big plays will come. Ryan, who hasn’t been able to get open outside could offer that big guy that can get position amd make a catch thus giving us a solid underneath option.
Again, did they let perceptions put guys in the wrong positions off the bat? The o-line moves in camp are pushing me further toward believing the offensive side has been poorly constructed or has mismanaged the pieces they were given.
While we all thought (hoped?) that TE would be a bigger part of this offense with nothing else working at all it’s hard to focus on getting the TE into the flow. I still think Haskins could be a weapon.September 11, 2019 at 6:09 pm #98076

I’ve been kicking this around to myself this week. Would the performance so far be enough to want to give Doege a shot? I know the arguments for and against, but to me the primary thing is trying to win every game you play. Saving someone so that they are in a different class and provide a neater timeline for succession can be an exercise in futility.
I don’t know if either Allison or Lowe are close enough to Kendall to make a viable push.September 11, 2019 at 6:33 pm #98079
I’m not ready to throw Kendall under the bus just yet.When you are running for your life on any given play and your confidence level in the o line is low,I can see not fully concentrating on your accuracy.However I’m not opposed to letting Doege play a few series’ to see if he can ignite a spark.It can’t hurt.
If I’m Brown I’d be questioning the manhood of his offensive starters as reverse motivator.And maybe he has.September 11, 2019 at 7:05 pm #98081
Unless Doege vs Kendall is like Brady vs Jameis Winston I say save him.
This season is going nowhere, 5-7 would be a huge positive at this point. Is that what you want to “waste” a guy on? Unless you the kid from Florida coming in next year is a phenom and going to contend for the job…September 12, 2019 at 5:45 am #98095
@Mexman.Correct me if I’m wrong but…..according to the NCAA website from 2018.
The redshirt is changing significantly.
The NCAA Division I Council passed a proposal Wednesday that will allow players to participate in any four games in a season and still use a redshirt that year. The change, not retroactive, takes effect this coming season.
Athletes are allowed to play four full seasons over five calendar years, using one as a redshirt. A player can now actually play 4 1/3 seasons, as the NCAA ditches what Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason called last year an “antiquated” policy: one snap in a game and you’ve spoiled the chance at redshirting that year.
It will not affect his redshirt unless he plays 5 games.Let him in a few games and see if he is effective.If not, hold his RS ,at least he will have gained game experience.And if he is effective, well then you’ve got a decision to make.At least there are options now.September 12, 2019 at 1:07 pm #98125
Correct, guys can play in 4 games now.
That can come later, continue to build around Kendall. It’s not as though his performance has been that bad, again the guy has had no chance. Doege can always share duty in the second half of the season, in fact that is clearly the best way to get him ready to compete for the job in the spring.
Not just Doege but a bunch of young players.
The new rule seems tailor made for schools like WVU who need to develop players moreso than the top tier schools.
