07:25 AM ET 10.02 | In the eyes of Dana Holgorsen, the decision may make itself. Clint Trickett and Ford Childress are both on the mend. They combined to start WVU's last three games. Paul Millard seems to be healthy, but he hasn't played since being usurped as the starter after the first two weeks of the season. Where it goes from here might all come down to percentages. "I don't know what healthy means," Holgorsen said Tuesday. "If they're a hundred percent right now, we would probably go with Clint. ... But if they're both 50 percent it might make more sense to go with Paul." In other words, when West Virginia (3-2, 1-1 Big 12) faces No. 17 Baylor (3-0, 0-0) Saturday night in Waco, Texas, the Mountaineers' starting quarterback might simply be the one who can stand up straight and throw the football.

No way WVU can keep up with Baylor's high powered offense. No reason to risk further injury to Trickett or Childress. Let Millard manage the game.

yep, run at all costs, in hopes of having at least 4-5 minute drives, even if no points. Baylor's starting offense is averaging a TD every 78 seconds.

Yep, Baylor is scoring points at will. And against some of the nations' finest teams: Wofford, Buffalo, and LA-Monroe. Yeah, that's legit!
