Holgerson, WVU keep foot on the Gas


Did anyone notice the comments relayed from Dana Holgorsen coming out of the half in the Orange Bowl?

With his WVU Mountaineers leading 49-20, he was asked if he would go conservative in the second half. His answer was, basically, NO. He said that his team would continue to run its game plan and continue to be aggressive. As we all know, In the second half, they threw the ball and took chances and changed nothing in their offensive game plan until basically 5 minutes were left in the game. As a result, the Mountaineers won the game 70-33, setting a bowl record for most points scored in the process. I was interested to see the reaction of Clemson coach Dabo Swinney postgame. What do you know? He wasn't even upset. He embraced Holgorsen for several seconds and they had what seemed to be a congenial exchange. No shame in falling to a superior foe. Back to my initial point: Coach Holgorsen went into the second half planning to keep his foot on the gas, because that's what his team does. They continued to do in the second half what was working in the first half. THIS is what I am convinced that Mike Bobo doesn't get and will never get. This is what will most likely keep UGA from becoming an elite team in the SEC. Thoughts?
