MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia Coach Dana Holgorsen maintained Monday what he revealed the night before with the release of the Week 1 depth chart.
The Mountaineers don't have a starting quarterback.
A tentative two-deep unveiled to start a week that ends with Saturday's noon home game against William & Mary showed juniors Clint Trickett and Paul Millard sharing the top spot as the team's signal caller.
"I haven't picked one yet," said Holgorsen, who two weeks ago vowed to have one by the end of camp Aug. 17. "I'm not as antsy as I thought I'd be with it. They've both raised their games a little bit and they're battling."
Holgorsen said he'd like one quarterback to distinguish himself and make the decision for the coach. If that doesn't happen, or if both progress similarly, Holgorsen said he won't have to choose between Trickett and Millard.
He'll play both.
"If we're playing tomorrow, yes, that would be the case, just because they've both raised their games," Holgorsen said. "They're competing pretty good. How it plays out, I don't know yet. Thankfully we have practice (today), Wednesday and Thursday to see where we're at."
Playing both quarterbacks wouldn't be just a historic deviation for Holgorsen, who has never split the duty among multiple players. It would be a significant move from the stated aims of Holgorsen and his offensive coordinator, Shannon Dawson. Holgorsen and his quarterback coach have both said they won't play two at the position.
For the time being, it seems to be the best option, though one that could change this week.
WVU hasn't regularly played two quarterbacks since the 2005 season. Adam Bednarik was the starter and Pat White would come in and change the pace of the game. White ultimately unseated Bednarik as the starter when Bednarik was injured against Louisville, when White led a memorable comeback in a triple-overtime victory that propelled the Mountaineers to the Big East title and a Sugar Bowl win over Georgia.
The starter has been predetermined every year since with White leading the way in 2006-08, Jarrett Brown taking over in 2009 and Geno Smith starting every game the past three seasons.
