The Sock 'Em, Bust 'Em Board Because that's our custom

Dana Holgorsen did 20 minutes with Bruce Feldman on Feldman’s newish podcast at Fox Sports. Right away the two got into the season-opening game against Alabama. That led to the obvious and useful connections to Texas A&M, Kevin Sumlin and Jake Spavital and to Oklahoma, which is startlingly similar to the Mountaineers thanks to Bob Stoops once hiring Holgorsen mentor Mike Leach.

What wasn’t mentioned was something Dana told me last week. The Alabama v. Auburn game film will be quite useful for preparations.

“They’re quite a bit different, but it’s a spread,” Holgorsen said. “It’s more of a run game spread, but it’s up-tempo, the sets are good and there’s a lot of motion. It’ll be good for us.”
