DALLAS - Dana Holgorsen opened Day 2 of Big 12 Media Days this morning sharing his take on how life will be different in the Big 12.
“The best way I can describe it to the people of West Virginia and the best way I can describe it to the Big 12, everybody else, is what exists in the Big 12 exists in Morgantown, West Virginia as well,” said Holgorsen. “What we’re getting into is the same thing we got at home.”
Holgorsen said that did not necessarily exist in the Big East last year.
He answered a smattering of questions from media from around the league about how his offense has evolved, what he’s learned since being a head coach, and how he will guide the team through the pretty high expectations that are being put on the Mountaineers so far.
“You don’t get ahead of yourself I guess,” he said. “If you think a guy that’s reading his press clippings, then it’s your job as a coach to make sure you bring them down.”
On learning his defense last year, Holgorsen said leaned on Najee Goode, Keith Tandy and Bruce Irvin and through the three of them "I got the beat of the entire defense and we were able to win some football games because of it."
