To say the 2013 season didn't go to plan for the West Virginia Mountaineers would be an understatement.
After sending off three of the best players in school history to the NFL, WVU faced a major rebuilding year that turned into a year-long quarterback battle. By the time December rolled around, the Mountaineers were 4-8, marking their worst finish since 2001 and the end of an 11-year bowl streak.
Dana Holgorsen's squad will now hit the reset button, and he might need a good year to avoid being axed.
The process will begin this spring with a new QB battle. However, all isn't as inauspicious as it seems. The Mountaineers will return a quality group of starters and should be much more settled overall than they were this time last year.
We'll take a look at how each of WVU's position battles could shake out through spring practice up ahead.
