Dana Holgorsen News Conference

The road hasn’t been kind to WVU so far this year. Hopefully Dana can get the ship back on course and get the Mountaineers bowl bound.
Check it out:

If you remember last year when I was talking about Kansas State, they 3
were top two or three in the country at that point in time. They are 2-4 at this point this year. A lot of the things I say about them this year is going to be the same things I said about them last year.

It starts with (Kansas State coach) Bill Snyder and the job he has done as a head coach and the program he has built over his 22 years he has been there. I know he was gone for a few years, but he got it right back on track with their record and what it has been over the last couple of years. He is a tremendous football coach that has done a lot of things for our profession. He does a lot of things for his kids, like building character, being a disciplined football team on all three sides of the ball and getting kids to play with tremendous effort.

There is a little different of a vibe with them this year because we have to go there to play as opposed to them coming here. They played a phenomenal football game when they came here last year, and they finished the year very strong. I have been to Kansas State several times, and they have built that up from nothing to what you see there today. It is a heck of a place to play a college football game. There is going to be 53,000 people there – they are loud and they are rowdy. Their student section is great, which is right behind our bench. It is a challenging place to go play. All venues in the Big 12 are challenging places to go play. It will be a tremendous challenge for our football team.
