MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - No offense to Clint Trickett or Paul Millard, to the West Virginia quarterback who will start Saturday and the one who will come in a while later and attempt to prove he ought to be the starter, but neither has the toughest task for the Mountaineers.
And don't pity Coach Dana Holgorsen or his quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator, Shannon Dawson, who are charged with starting one player, facilitating the other and rotating both in a way that gives them the best chance to play to their potential and help WVU beat William & Mary in the opener.
You can even look past the handful of true freshmen and junior college players who will combat butterflies as they make their debuts at noon (Fox Sports 1).
Concern yourself with a redshirt freshman from Cleveland, a young man not merely playing a new position in his first college game, but someone who is surrounded by newcomers, too.
He is Tyler Orlosky and he's the starting center who has new starters at guard to either side as well as the unique responsibility of working with at least two quarterbacks.
"It's going to be interesting," said the 6-foot-4, 295-pound Orlosky, who had been a guard until the spring. "There are a few things you could get worried about, but as long as I try to treat everything the same and worry about my job, I don't see it being a problem."
That's going to be difficult because everything won't be the same. Two quarterbacks means two quarterbacks. It's two different sets of hands, two unique stances to take the snap, two ways they get a signal from the sideline and communicate it with the rest of the offense.
Orlosky doesn't need to be told any of that, but he'd tell you all of that is a little overrated.
"There's really not much of a difference at all," he said. "Paul complains I get real low in my stance. I have a tendency to get my butt lower than most centers and Paul doesn't like that because he doesn't like to bend down when he's under center because it's harder for him to get out of there. Clint doesn't complain too much."
The Mountaineers run a shotgun offense. They'll go under center from time to time, and usually only when they're near one goal line or the other, but the shotgun snaps both go to a quarterback who's 6-2. With the exception of two days in camp when the ball kept sailing right, Orlosky has had no trouble getting the ball to either quarterback.
"It's really about me," he said. "As long as I'm comfortable snapping to them, I'll have no problems, and I'm comfortable snapping to both of them."
The greater concern, if Orlosky allows one to get through his helmet, comes with playing next to two guards who haven't played before, either. Sophomore Marquis Lucas is the presumed starter at left guard and junior college transfer Mark Glowinski, who redshirted last season, is likely to start at right guard.
