It's hard to believe that it's that time of year again when Mountaineer fans from around the country start planning their weekend trips to Morgantown and WVU students revolve their studies around Saturday afternoon games. But in a "football town", this is the time of year you live for.
This football season is sure to be bigger and better than ever, and along with the "newness" that the Big 12 Conference brings, we also bring Mountaineer fans something new of our own.
Tune in this Saturday morning to your local West Virginia Media Station to catch the very first episode of this year's Dana Holgorsen Show. Throughout the season, we will take you behind the scenes of one of the most powerful football programs in the country, as well as bring you up close and personal with WVU Head Football Coach Dana Holgorsen.
We promise to leave no stone unturned as we grant you as much access as possible to one of the most highly anticipated seasons of Mountaineer Football in years.
This week's episode takes a brief look back on the successful 2011 season before sitting down, one on one, with Coach Holgorsen. He updates us on his team's progress in training camp and gives us his expectations for his squad's first year in the Big 12.
Geoff Coyle takes us inside West Virginia Football Fan Day that happened this past weekend in the Caperton Indoor Facility. This family friendly event brought out an unprecedented number of fans proving to be the most attended WVU Football Fan Day to date.
Geoff also sat down with Associate Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator, Joe DeForest, to get the update on the defensive side of the ball going into the 2012 season.
We take you inside the recent Big 12 Media Days in Dallas, Texas. From Big 12 Mascots to Mountaineer Football standouts taking center stage, this is one special segment you do not want to miss.
Scott Grayson sits down with West Virginia Football Offensive Coordinator, Shannon Dawson, as Coach Dawson tells us how his Mountaineer Offense is looking as a whole and fills us in on how he is embracing his new role.
Scott will bring us inside the Big 12 Officials Clinic that took place this summer. With a new conference and a new year, some changes to the rule book come as no surprise, and Scott will fill us in on it all.
We wrap up the show taking a quick look at some new players to keep a close eye on this year as we anxiously await West Virginia's first year in the Big 12 Conference.
The Dana Holgorsen Show airs on FOX59 in the Beckley-Bluefield market and Fox Ohio Valley in the Wheeling/Steubenville market, Fridays at 11pm. It airs at 9am, Saturday on WBOY, WOWK, WTRF & WVNS.
The show will first be available on wvillustrated.com Saturday at 10 am. It will remain on our website for you to watch at your leisure.
