Many thanks to Bill Haisten of the Tulsa World newspaper, who is a heck of a newspaperman, a prince of a guy and has been of great help this past week for me. On Friday, he caught up with Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden and asked the young man how he felt Dana Holgorsen will do at West Virginia.
The answer was straight and to the point:
"It's not an easy job and not everyone can do it," Weeden said. "There will be some bumps in the road for [Holgorsen], but mark my words, he'll have a lot of success up there."
Now remember this about Weeden, he has had a remarkable season for the Cowboys.
Here is some of the things he has done under Holgorsen:
*Broken school records for pass attempts (470), completions (317), passing yards (4,037), total offense (3,969 yards) and TD passes (32). At 67.4 percent, Weeden is on track to break the single-season school record for completion rate. The record of 64.9 was set by Zac Robinson in 2008.
