The heat and the intensity of drills had many players asking for water bottles as they came to the sidelines.
WVU offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen may have broken a sweat from shaking his head in disappointment so often though, as he continued to find issues with many areas of play.
On both occasions, his answer has been the same: "No." There has been no further elaboration.
One play early in 11-on-11 drills Wednesday showed why Holgorsen has had so little to say about the wide receiver.
Woods appeared to have broken free of the defense, as no cornerback or safety was within earshot of him. But there was apparently some miscommunication between the receiver and quarterback Geno Smith, as the resulting throw sailed over Woods' outstretched arm and fell incomplete.
Holgorsen apparently put the blame on Woods, immediately turning in his direction and asking him, "Why would you run a comeback [route] against a Cover Two [defense]? Run the [designed] route, and you would have scored."
On one play, running back Trey Johnson lined up on the wrong side of Smith. A few snaps later, there was apparent miscommunication between backup signal-caller Paul Millard and receiver Coley White, as what appeared to be a hot read for Millard (who was under heavy pressure at the time of his throw) was nowhere near White.
Later, Millard continued to draw fire from Holgorsen. First, under pressure again, he tossed a short screen pass that was caught, but the receiver was quickly bottled up and dropped for a loss of yardage.
"Good," Holgorsen said sarcastically to Millard. "That's the way to throw it and lose six yards."
The offense with Millard at the controls also had some issues getting lined up properly in a fashion that was quick enough to suit Holgorsen, and the offensive coordinator blamed Millard for being too quiet in his calls to the receivers for that.
Though neither player touched the football, both were nearly perfect in executing their blocking assignments. On at least three occasions, Lindamood found either a defensive lineman or linebacker and used excellent fundamental techniques to make a jarring initial hit and push pass-rushers backwards.
Kovatch got in the act as well, hitting reserve defensive lineman J.B. Lageman hard enough at one point to draw a bit of frustrated extra-curricular activity from Lageman. That pleased running backs coach Robert Gillespie, who yelled out, "I love it! Piss him off, Ricky."
This is not to say Millhouse has cracked the starting line-up or that he will even see meaningful playing time this fall, but he will certainly be a name to watch moving forward, as he may be one of the Mountaineers' better options at inside receiver.
Since coaches were not available to the media for interviews after practice, it was not immediately clear if that was just a change-up look, or if Holgorsen may consider moving Urban back to tight end to allow for better pass protection.
At one point, Millhouse made a nice catch over the middle in traffic, absorbing a big hit from a safety while still maintaining possession. As he came up off the turf, the first person to offer a high-five was safeties coach Steve Dunlap.
And on the last play of 11-on-11 work, Smith attempted to throw a fade to receiver Stedman Bailey in the corner of the end zone. But young cornerback Avery Williams read the play all the way and easily swatted the ball away.
As players headed to their respective stations for the team's ball security/turnover circuit to end practice, Holgorsen made a point to seek out Williams and offer some encouraging words about the nice play he made.
