Big 12 football: Could Joe DeForest's job be on the line vs. TCU?
Joe DeForest spent 11 years as an OSU assistant coach, carving a reputation as a great recruiter and a kicking-teams mastermind. But DeForest wanted to upgrade his resume, so last January he joined pal Dana Holgorsen in West Virginia as the Mountaineer defensive coordinator.

It hasn't gone well. West Virginia did not have the defensive personnel suited to combat the Big 12's spread offenses.
The Mountaineers, 2-2 in the conference, have allowed 63 points to Baylor, 45 to Texas, 49 to Texas Tech and 55 to Kansas State. That's an average of 53 points a game.
Saturday, West Virginia hosts TCU, which is scrambling with redshirt freshman quarterback Trevone Boykin, who replaced troubled Casey Paschall four games ago.
If the Mountaineers continue to allow video-game type point totals, Holgorsen might seek more than an upgrade in talent to help the defense.
