Last season, the West Virginia offense had a record-breaking campaign in its first year under the direction of offensive guru Dana Holgorsen.
Just one offseason of work produced a 4,000-yard passer and two 1,000-yard receivers, including the national leader in all-purpose yardage.
In year two, Holgorsen's offense promises to be even better, and here's why.
According to Tony Caridi of WVUSports.com, Holgorsen's offense can be implemented in just three days, then perfected through repetition:
"Enter Holgorsen, who has jumped to the other end of the spectrum with an offense built on simple assignments that are refined to the highest level of precision through repetition...Holgorsen said it would take three days, that’s three days, to install his offense that’s been ranked among the nation’s best in its recent stops at Houston and Oklahoma State."
Essentially, Holgorsen's offense is a relatively simple scheme in which no player will fill more than his designated role. Holgorsen finds out what his players do best, puts them in place to do just that and finally, those athletes practice that one job over and over until they are masters of their trade.
West Virginia returns almost its entire starting offense, so now the offensive line, running backs, receivers and most importantly, quarterback Geno Smith, will all have an entire season and two offseasons of work in the system.
I'm no mathematician, but that's a lot more than three days. With that much repetition, this offense is poised to explode in 2012.
