WVU Football Legends Pat White, Rasheed Marshall Offer Thoughts on Garrett Greene

Published

on

When legends speak, people listen. That’s the case with both WVU all-time greats Pat White and Rasheed Marshall commenting on the break out performance by quarterback Garrett Greene on Saturday.

White tweeted a subtle “we gave you the blueprint” message, which is being assumed to be about Greene, who led the Mountaineers to the first win over Oklahoma for the program since joining the Big 12. The blueprint White referred to is likely the success of dual threat quarterback throughout the history of WVU football.

Greene has since quote tweeted White’s tweet. “You paved the way. Appreciate you,” Greene replied.

In addition to White, Major Harris in the late 1980’s and Rasheed Marshall right before him put up numbers and guided WVU to some of the best seasons in program history while using both their legs and arm to achieve success on offense. WVU has not had a true dual threat starting quarterback throughout the last decade as a member of the Big 12.

It wasn’t just White who offered his thoughts about Greene, the previously mentioned Marshall, who also serves as co-host of the All Three Phases podcast on WVSN, was much more direct with what he had to say.

“I have no idea what 4 quarters of G. Greene at QB would look like. Being a starter vs coming in off of the bench is a different animal but at this point we would all love to see it. He’s a playmaker and a fierce competitor. The tools are there… Heck of a game 6!,” Marshall said in a tweet.

Greene, a sophomore, who had previously only been used in designed run plays, finished with a stat line of 12 for 22 for 138 yards through the air with a touchdown pass. He then added 119 yards on the ground for an average of 8.5 per and two scores.

While many fans are echoing the thoughts of White and Marshall and want to see more of Greene, head coach Neal Brown was noncommittal about who his starting quarterback will be moving forward after the game and hinted that he may not make an announcement publicly until right before kickoff against Kansas State.

    I said this to my son years ago when WVU first joined the Big 12. I said look what WVU did to Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl. I said if you want to win the Big 12, you must run the same type of offense. WVU must go back to RPO base offense. Even triple threat option once in a while. The Air Raid does not work for WVU. Neal Brown will not change his scheme and will continue to not be successful at WVU. Its time to get Rich Rod or a coach that knows how to teach the RPO spread with a dual threat QB in order to be successful. WVU throughout the years has been more successful with a dual threat QB. Let get back to what brought WVU success. Its time to get back to being relevant. Let’s Go Mountaineers!!!
