07:35 AM ET 09.13 | And a freshman shall lead them. There isn't a lot to be said about West Virginia's offense through two games, the latest being a 16-7 loss to Oklahoma that saw a Dana Holgorsen offense finish with its lowest point total since a 30-6 loss to Colorado when he was an assistant at Texas Tech in 2006. So, Holgorsen decided to do something about it on Thursday night, announcing on his radio show that Ford Childress will start Saturday's game against Georgia State. "I accept full responsibility for seven points," said Holgorsen, whose team faces the Panthers (0-2) in a noon game televised on Root. "I don't care who we are playing, it's embarrassing. I've got the utmost respect for Bob and Mike Stoops, but that being said, seven points is embarrassing, and we need to fix it."

WVU lost a ton of talent from last year's offense.. O line, Buie, Smith ... new QB doesn't have much help.

I don't think WVA is relishing the thought of their trip to Baylor.

Shoot, I was just going to start a campaign to get Holgorsen to be our OC. Looks like he can't pick a QB either.

Baylor hosts WVA to kick off their conference slate. They also play host to I State, OU, TTech, and the 'Horns. They come a callin' on K State, Kansas, OK State, and TCU. Gotta say, it's a fairly nice conference schedule.

Earnestly, for success, the OC has to match up with the HC's basic football philosophy. Among QB developers, who do you think Dantonio would hire?

I don't know enough of the OC's out there, but given the style of football Dantonio likes to play, I would like him get an OC with NFL experience on a staff like Pittsburgh, Baltimore or Green Bay. I also think he needs to give the OC control of the offensive staff. I think our O-line coach (Staten) underachieves, same thing with our recievers coach (Samuel).

Tinnie, I believe they play the Sand Aggies at Jerry's World. They have been the last few years.

Sounds like Les Miles. He now has an NFL one as you describe...Cam Cameron.

Did you see that crapfest between TCU-Tech. Man the B12 is the new Big East.

It's all Bevo's fault, of course.

That was a pretty sloppy game.

Gotta give Tubbs a little credit....the tech defense looked much better than they have in the past.

But neither one of them looked like Big 12 offenses.

Forgot to say Tubbs left the defense with some talent it looks like.

Well they're a crapfest too.

If Bevo's Boys don't get it up and take down Ol' Miss in Austin, Dodds & Brown both have to go.

That's kind of what I was thinking, but it has to be someone with a strong run-game background.
