Oklahoma State is a week away from Bedlam, and this week Oklahoma is heading to West Virginia to face Dana Holgorsen’s offense and in a way get a head start on preparing for the Cowboys offense. You hate to see the Sooners inherit that advantage, but this week the Cowboys get the advantage as the Mountaineers offense was a good prep for Texas Tech’s no-huddle spread offense.

West Virginia University head football coach Dana Holgorsen met with the media on Tuesday to talk about the challenge that Oklahoma will bring this weekend, the focus of the team moving forward, and what the team needs to do to break the current four game losing streak. MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – A transcript of [...]
Dana Holgorsen quit helping Oklahoma State win football games when he left the Alamodome as the Cowboys 2010 Alamo Bowl win over Arizona was wrapping up. Holgorsen had already taken the job as coach-in-waiting at West Virginia, and he left the field with less than a minute to play saying his goodbyes to several players, including quarterback Brandon Weeden and wide receiver Justin Blackmon.
The comment from West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen was telling. Echoed as it was by other players and coaches, it explains a good bit about West Virginia's four-game losing streak.
After each game, this feature will analyze several aspects of the Oklahoma State football team. Each category will either rise (+1), fall (-1) or stay even (0).

At least Dana Holgorsen appears as dejected as I do after watching four consecutive losses.
First-year Oklahoma State baseball coach Josh Holliday is looking forward to Wednesday, the day the NCAA National Letter of Intent early signing period begins. That’s because Holliday and his staff have put together an impressive list of signees, including four high school prospects on the 2013 ESPN Top 60 list.
Georgia commitment Naim Mustafaa visited Oklahoma State over the weekend and he was impressed. How impressed? Get the latest here.
Back in the summer I told a few friends that I’d be pleased if West Virginia went 8-4 in its first season in the Big 12.
They scoffed and told me how anything less than 10-2 would be a huge disappointment. It appears we were both wrong (and they are clearly bumming big time).
At 5-4, WVU still has a chance to get to 8-4, but it’s not likely considering the Mountaineers...
Todd Monken said his job is really tough now. The Oklahoma State offensive coordinator knew who he had to work with before the Cowboys experienced a series of injuries at quarterback. But Monken has watched the baton passed from one signal caller to the next throughout the season.
West Virginia lost their fourth straight game on Saturday, falling to Oklahoma State 55-34. After a surging 5-0 start to the season, the Mountaineers now find themselves fighting to even become bowl eligible. Even in defeat, some players stood out among the rest. We examine those players – and hand out this weeks Musket Awards [...]
