New Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen talked on 1560 AM in Houston and Triple Play Radio Network in Stillwater earlier this week about taking over the Cowboy offense. Here are some key points Holgorsen made during the interviews:
The Game 1560 AM in Houston:
→On what he asked Case Keenum to do:
"I’ll give him a formation and just push him along and say, ‘Go to work.’ With young, inexperienced quarterbacks, they hate it because they’re like, ‘Give me some help here.’ Experienced guys love it. You have to trust them to be able to do it, and if they make a mistake, you can’t yell at them because that discourages them from thinking quickly and doing the right thing.”
→On giving the Cowboy quarterbacks the freedom Keenum had:
"I’ll have to point them in the right direction early on. The first six months, we’ll gear them to do exactly what we want them to do.”
→On what Mike Gundy said to him:
"He just wants to manage things. Mike Leach ran the offense, Kevin (Sumlin) manages everything, you can’t do that if you’re worried about one-third of the ball.
