Today marks the first of 15 spring practices for our Mountaineer football team. Spring practices will conclude with the completely irrelevant Gold-Blue Game on April 18.
This off-season brings with it a plethora of question. Who is going to fill in the gaps on the offensive line? Who will fill the holes left in the secondary? Most importantly, however, is the question of who, if anyone, will be a solid back-up at QB?
While the Gold-Blue Game may be irrelevant, I will inevitably be there and get excited about a certain player, only to be let down by midseason by his lack of performance. The only player to "step-up" in the Gold-Blue game and then live up to that hype the following season was, Owen Schmitt.
