Dana Holgorsen: TCU game isn’t ‘any more important than Kansas’

Dana Holgorsen is really taking West Virginia’s season one game at a time.

During his weekly press conference, he said that he doesn’t view this Saturday’s game against TCU (a top 10 ranked team) any differently than a game against Kansas (who has won one Big 12 game in two years).

Holgorsen’s full quote was, “Just because TCU’s No. 8 in the country doesn’t make it any more important than Kansas. You guys can call me full of crap, but I mean it.”

He’s not full of crap, and he’s also not wrong.

Obviously there’s a big difference between TCU and Kansas, but Holgorsen’s sentiment is a good one. You can run the risk of having your players too nervous if you hype them up too much before a big game, and you can lose to teams you should beat if you aren’t adequately prepared.

West Virginia sounds like they’re preparing for a College Gameday appearance just like they would any other game, and attempting to not get lost in the spotlight. If they can do that, they’ll have a solid chance of beating TCU on the road.
