GUNDY AND HOLGORSEN REUNITED — SORT OF
The rapid nature of Big 12 Media Days, where players and coaches are whisked from interview room to interview room, does not allow for a lot of casual chatter between coaches.
That means there wasn't much time for Gundy to catch up with Dana Holgorsen, OSU's former offensive coordinator who now leads West Virginia into the Big 12 as its head coach.
Around 11 a.m., Gundy said during an interview session that he had not yet even seen Holgorsen. Then around lunchtime, the pair exchanged waves in a hallway while Holgorsen was quickly moving in between national television interviews and Gundy was taking a phone call.
Holgorsen and two of his assistants — Joe DeForest and Robert Gillespie — are certainly familiar with the Big 12 and the Cowboys, and vice versa. But Holgorsen shrugged off any concerns about facing OSU, and the offense he installed there in 2010, this season.
“They'll probably know as much about us as we know them,” Holgorsen said. “We've got some guys defensively that come from there, obviously. We've got some guys offensively that come from there.
“It'll probably be similar to the way it was back in 2000, when Coach (Mike) Leach left Oklahoma and went to Texas Tech. You had two teams playing in the same offense that knew a lot about each other. I don't know if it's going to help you or hurt you.”
