West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen is no stranger to visitor locker rooms.
Having coached at the collegiate level in some form or fashion for the previous two and a half decades, Holgoren has coached up his positional units, offenses, or entire team in seemingly countless locker rooms across the country and on Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium, he’ll be in one he’s quite fond of with West Virginia set to square off with TCU.
“I think it’s been pretty good when we go to TCU,” Holgorsen recently said on his thoughts of opposing locker rooms. “That’s probably the nicest one I’ve ever seen. They redid their stuff, and it’s unbelievable.”
At the turn of the decade, TCU unveiled its plans for a $105 million renovation the Amon G. Carter Stadium, which was completed just in time for the Horned Frogs introduction to the Big 12 in 2013.
Of course, the general facilities are expected to be top-notch, but that’s not always the case for the visitors locker room, in particular.
As Holgorsen noted, the locker room for last week’s meeting with Kansas, “didn’t smell very well,” and the visitors locker rooms at Texas make it difficult to communicate with the entire team.
“That is what a visitor’s locker room should be, shouldn’t it? Treat the visitor like crap, make it hard on them,” Holgorsen said. “No air conditioning, no stalls on the toilets; that makes me chuckle.”
For as bad as visitors locker rooms across the nation may be, even at the NFL level, it’s safe to say Holgorsen will feel right at home in Fort Worth on Saturday, courtesy of some of the newest visitors locker rooms in college football.
