Memphis, TN - West Virginia senior quarterback Clint Trickett has decided to retire from football due to health issues stemming from multiple concussions. . Trickett revealed in a Friday media session that doctors have not cleared him to play in Mondays Liberty Bowl against Texas A&M. Obviously Im not dressed and ready to go. I tried as much as I could. Believe me, Ive been going up to UPMC numerous times over the past month and they were unable to clear me, Trickett said. Its been five concussions in 14 months now so unfortunately I have to retire from football and get into coaching -- the family business -- which is something Ive been excited for and I really am ready to move on. I would love to be out and finish the season with my guys, my last game, and its unfortunate how it ended but I had a great senior year and I would trade it for the rest. The native of Tallahassee passed for 3,285 yards and 18 touchdowns against 10 interceptions on 281-of-419 attempts this year for the 7-5 Mountaineers. He completes his collegiate career having accumulated 5,837 passing yards along with 32 TDs for West Virginia and Florida State. West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen said Skyler Howard will be under center for the contest. Howard, a sophomore from Fort Worth, Texas, completed 36-of-65 attempts for 483 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in relief of Trickett in 2014. Its unfortunate just because hes done such a good job for us. Hes been our starting quarterback and I still consider him our starting quarterback. His senior year didnt end the way that he wanted it to but with that said, 10 1/2 good games and he put us into a position to be able to play in this bowl game, Holgorsen acknowledged of Trickett. . Specifically, thumbs up to the Canadian-based teams in the NHL, or at least most of them. . Especially after he got ejected. "How many innings was that?" he wondered.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- A rainout at Great American Ball Park did more than push Homer Baileys next attempt at pitching another no-hitter out of Cincinnati. It also raised the possibility, San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy mentioned, of the Giants and Reds playing a makeup game at a neutral site. Thursdays game never got started and was called after a wait of nearly 2 1-2 hours. No makeup date was announced. This was the last day the Giants were scheduled to be in Cincinnati this season. The Reds visit San Francisco later this month. Reds manager Dusty Baker said he would keep his rotation intact. That would mean Bailey, who beat the Giants by pitching his second career no-hitter Tuesday night, wouldnt start Sunday at home against Seattle. Instead, Bailey would try to match Johnny Vander Meers 1938 achievement of pitching no-hitters in back-to-back starts on Monday in Milwaukee. Trying to find a makeup date for two teams that might be in playoff contention could be tricky. The Reds and Giants are both off Aug. 29. It would be the first day after the Reds finish a stretch of 20 games in 20 days and the last before they play 13 games in 13 days; it is also San Franciscos only day off between stretches of playing on 16 and 17 consecutive dates. Major League Baseball rules prohibit teams from playing more than 20 straight days without permission from the players union. Also, the Reds would be in the middle of a road trip to St. Louis and Colorado. The Giants would be in the middle of a trip to Colorado and Arizona. Could Coors Field in Denver be a convenient place to meet? "There are options they discussed for a makeup," Bochy said. "August 29 in Colorado. September 30, the day after the season, we would come here (Cincinnati). They discussed a split doubleheader at our place." Said Baker: &quuot;Were kicking it around, kicking it around about possible dates which are optimal. . quot; "There are none. Theres only one date when were both off, but that would make it 34 (straight) days for both," he said. This postponement was only the seventh rainout in the 11-year history of Great American Ball Park and the first since May 1, 2012, against the Cubs. Even before the rain, Cincinnatis Chris Heisey figured it was a long shot that he would play Thursday despite homering and driving in two runs the previous day. It became a sure thing for Heisey and everyone else when the finale of the four-game series was postponed by rain. Heisey made his first start after spending nearly two months on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring, playing in Wednesday nights 3-2, 11-inning win. Even if the rain had stopped in time for Thursdays game to be played, he figured Bakers caution would keep him on the bench. "(Baker) usually has a good idea of when you can play and when you cant, but I told him that Im feeling great, and Im ready to play whenever he needs me," he said. Sure enough, Heisey wasnt in Bakers starting lineup, in part because right-hander Matt Cain was San Franciscos scheduled starter. That wasnt the only reason. "I kept my eye on him. Usually, when you get hurt is when you get fatigued," Baker said before the game was called. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Cain will start the opener of a three-game series against the Dodgers on Friday in San Francisco. "No changes right now," Bochy said about his rotation. "Cain goes (Friday). (Madison) Bumgarner on Saturday. The plan right now is (Chad) Gaudin on Sunday." Gaudin has been on the disabled list since June 24, retroactive to June 21, with a bruised right elbow. ' ' '
