Ford Childress is West Virginia's new starting quarterback

So much for Paul Millard as West Virginia’s starting quarterback, or Clint Trickett for that matter.

West Virginia Football: Where will WVU finish?

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen West Virginia is expected to finish eighth as a result of the Big 12 Conference preseason media poll. My initial thought was that this prediction was too low, but it wasn’t surprising at all. In fact, it was rather expected after the Mountaineers lost Geno Smith, Tavon Austin, and Stedman Bailey to the NFL draft. The real question here is...

Florida State quarterback Clint Trickett transferring to West Virginia

Junior Paul Millard and redshirt freshman Ford Childress spent the spring in Morgantown fighting for the starting quarterback job at West Virginia.
