What caused more consternation in the past 48 hours: Miley Cyrus and her gyration or Dana Holgorsen and his hesitation?
Billy Ray's offspring made headlines with Robin Thicke, while WVU's head football coach blurred the lines on who will start at quarterback this Saturday against William & Mary.
As for the latter, so what? It'll be Clint Trickett or Paul Millard at the helm when the Mountaineers host the Tribe at noon at Mountaineer Field. Or, it'll be Trickett and Millard splitting the duties.
If both play, don't lean on this old football axiom: if a team has two quarterbacks, it has none.
That may not apply here.
After all, Holgorsen's indecisiveness is a product of the positive for Mountaineer football.
Millard stayed in the QB competition because his level of play has risen the past couple weeks of preseason camp. That is a plus for WVU.
Millard, remember, has never competed for the starting job after sitting behind Geno Smith for two seasons. The arrival of a transfer and the presence of competition was likely mutually beneficial for Trickett and Millard.
If Trickett never steps on campus, does third-stringer Ford Childress push Millard as Trickett has? In that scenario - if there is a clear separation between Millard and Childress and Trickett picks another school this summer - then Holgorsen's decision would've been a cinch.
Instead of one capable starter, Holgorsen has two. That, too, is a plus for WVU.
The QB surplus isn't just a Mountain State issue in the Big 12 this season.
WVU's second-year league saw seven of the top 10 passers in the conference exhaust eligibility in 2012. Of the three returnees, only Texas junior David Ash has a seemingly firm grip on the QB job.
TCU's Trevone Boykin gives the Horned Frogs a pair of capable starting QBs with the return of Casey Paschal. Oklahoma State will use sophomore J.W. Walsh and senior Clint Chelf. The quarterback timeshare isn't dampening expectations for those two programs, both of which are ranked in the top 20 in the national preseason polls.
"If there was separation where one was considerably better than the other then we would name him the starter," Oklahoma State Coach Mike Gundy said. "Sometimes you have two good players and sometimes people feel like, well, if you don't name one then you don't have one.
