All Hail Holgo- Smith passes for 656 yards and 8 TDs

Dana Holgorsen is a bit of a character which I think is pretty interesting. However, his approach to offense is outstanding, I think the guy is a genius. He's got Geno Smith passing for video game numbers on Baylor on 45 of 51 (!), not some baby seal, just crazy. Tip of the hat to those guys. I hope Al was watching that game.

I wouldn't say the Baylor bears are a baby seal, but this team gave up 56 to Washington in last year's bowl game, 48 to TCU, 55 to A&M, 42 to Texas Tech, etc.  This is not a defense that is going to keep competent offenses below 35 points.

Smith is Graham Harrell , except with wheels, and Stedman Bailey is Michael Crabtree all over again.

Briles should be commended for his work at Baylor. They too are a scary offensive football team.

Welp, back to lining up in the pro-set for manball....

This game showed what great offenses they both have...it also showed what absolute horrible defenses they both have.  I really don't like being a fan of a team that has virtually no defense.

That Air Raid offense that they have really is something. Geno is amongst the players I have to watch every week (Sammy Watkins is another). I really hope his success will translate to the pros. I'm not sure, but has there been a successful Air Raid QB?

but the WRs are in such fantastic physical condition because they're literally running sprints like 80 times full blast, no huddle.

When I watched Texas Tech a few years ago, these WRs got so wide open, it was ridiculous.

WRs Stedman Bailey,Terrance Williams and Lanear Samspon were  alot of fun to watch.  Brace yourselves NFL.

He may be an offensive genius, but he needs to hire a competent defensive coordinator. I don't care how many points you score, giving up 60+ points a game is pathetic.

They might be in trouble when they play a real defense.

(1/2) Rewatching some Baylor/WVU. WVU's CB coaching awful. BU's 3Q TD to Williams, Jenkins, decent corner, 10yd cushion, backpedals 6 times

 

 

(2/2), takes a false step inside, then turns 180 around and is in trail position on Williams (a 1st rounder). Just odd footwork coaching.

 

 

WVU really thin at CB and BU a nightmare matchup in that regard, but IMHO very poor coaching of CBs was main (not only) culprit of bad D

 

Maybe WVU will always be cursed with having bad DB coaching...

It's not just the stat line that's impressive. Did you see the trajectory on Smith's passes, especially the deep balls? It was a beautiful display. Holgo may be responsible for a great offense, but a scheme is not responsible for 45-51.
