Recent comments show Heisman Trophy hopeful Will Grier does not want Bama
West Virginia QB Will Grier, a Heisman Trophy hopeful, is not one to pound his chest to have a chance at No. 1 Alabama.
Coming off of a bye week, Grier spoke with reporters on Monday after the Mountaineers fell at Iowa State on Oct. 13 in a game where he was sacked seven times and was just 11-for-15 passing for 100 yards, with a touchdown and an interception, by far the worst game of his season. He’s thrown for at least 332 yards and two touchdowns in every other game this season.
Asked about the biggest development in college football on Saturday, Grier said the Ohio State loss at Purdue showed that every team outside of Alabama is ripe for an upset.
Although Florida played Alabama in the SEC Championship in 2015, Grier, before he transferred, was suspended for taking a banned substance, and did not face the Crimson Tide.
Will Grier said Ohio State losing at Purdue showed that anyone can lose on any given Saturday. “Not including Alabama,” he added. “Geez. They’re playing pretty well.”
