The 2018 WVU HairRaid May Be In Jeopardy


NCAA Football: Delaware State at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

The West Virginia Mountaineers have experienced a death. The 2017 season was one that featured a lot of fantastic, highlight reel plays. David Sills caught 18 touchdowns. Will Grier threw the ball deep with a regular occurrence. All of that could now be in jeopardy.

The 2018 season will not be like the 2017 season. The 2017 season featured the flowing locks of one of the most talented signal callers to ever grace the flying WV. It flowed like black silk, blowing in the breeze behind the mighty right arm of the North Carolina native. It provided extra flair as Grier hurdled Virginia Tech defenders, spun out of Horned Frog tackles and tossed touchdowns to Ka’Raun White while killing the half against Kansas State.

But no more. The 2018 season will not longer feature those long, luxurious locks of Will Grier. The 2018 HairRaid is dead. Samson has cut his hair. No longer will we get the sight of a beautiful, flowing head of hair on our quarterback. No longer will we be able to point out that as a Florida Gator he had a shaved head but as a Mountaineers, he was all man. No more.

Pour one out for the greatest head of hair we saw in 2017. Drink up your sorrows while you recognize that Grier now represents another former signal caller: Clint Trickett.

“I did the long hair thing. I don’t even know why I did it. I just didn’t get a haircut for a while. I didn’t really like the way it looked, to be honest with you. I kind of got tired of it. I think it was just time for a change.” - Will “Clint Trickett” Grier
