Steve Slaton will not get benched because of Noel Devine. As good as Devine has been, a majority of his limited touches have been in garbage time. He didn't touch the ball once in the game against Western Michigan until the 4th quarter, when the score was 49-21. Same story with the game against Marshall. No doubt he is playing great, but he hasn't played a great defense or in the 1st half of a game.
I always wondered why people doubted Devine's ability, when your that fast, and that shifty, it doesnt matter what level of competition you play against, you are gonna do good. When I heard he was going to that offense, I knew he was in for big things.
I think Devine has looked amazing, but Slaton has said he wants to play two more years at WVU and I don't think he bolts early unless WVU wins a national title. I don't see Devine, as talented as he is, causing Steve to make an early exit because of pressure behind him.
