MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen heaped praise on freshman Daryl Worley, rescinded last week’s praise for the offensive line, and said the Mountaineers are “excited about going to Baltimore” to face unbeaten Maryland.

He also announced the departure of senior cornerback Brodrick Jenkins, an 11-game starter who had been relegated to backup status this season. Declining to clarify whether Jenkins left the team or was dismissed, Holgorsen revealed only that “it’s internal.”

    guess i will have to get rid of my grey and black wvu clothing!!

  • john c

    omg he is wearing a black shirt.........

  • ducks in a row

    After a long day, it would be nice to read some comments about the game itself. Why all the jibber jabber about clothing and colors? Are there any adults on this board?

    I agree with the poster above. This game should be a huge test for 1. (QB) Ford. 2 Receivers. The running game appears to be fairly solid. I'm shocked at the fact that the D seems to be able to defend the pass so far this year, yet can't seem to stop the run. Is that totally opposite from last year, or am I dreaming? I think this one will be tight. How is Rigg doing?

    • Double A

      Good post "Ducks" finally some football!! Rigg will be fine but probably wont go Saturday. Pass D is improved, a lot, in my opinion from just being more experienced and better coached along with a second year in a simplified 3-4 D. Running D will get better. As season matures our running D will also. The whole unit will continue to grow and improve! The big O will get rolling soon and by the time TT comes to Mo Town payback will be spoon fed to those Red Raiders!!!

  • John Davis

    so now the football fans are more interested in the color of holgs shirt than the Maryland game wow? I think we beat Maryland and we r assured of atleast 7 and 5 we lose and it could be a snowball. We got the Kansas and iowa state games texas looks winnable in Motown now and maybe a road win at kstate give us one more maybe two and not a bad year right? Keep ford at the qb spot regardless and the next couple years could be very good!

  • Bim

    A friend of mine in Maryland and follower of MD but not a big fan, says we will win by at least 2 touchdowns. He is basing this on when he watched us play Oklahoma, only.

  • WVWho

    This game shouldn't be close. WVU-31, Maryland-13

    • Hop'sHip

      WVW: I hope you're right, but at the risk of being called a Grinch, I suspect you are living in Whoville.

  • leroy j gibbs

    Must be a slow sports day

  • Bim

    Why don't we play Rocky Top after each game instead of Country Roads. Colors, songs makes no difference.

    • Dave

      Rocky Top is a nice song but it's not a West Virginia song, it's a Tennessee song.

      Good ole Rocky Top
      Rocky Top Tennessee

      • Bim

        Dave, my point, black is not a wvu color

        • Duggie

          I can't believe you guys are making a big deal over the shirt. It's a shirt. I have been a WVU fan for several decades and don't around and wonder what shirt Holgerson will wear every year. What I really can't believe is why Luck would hire a coach with hair like that. All the other coaches had great hair. Holgerson's hair is all over the place. I know he says it's so the QB can see him better on the side line because the other coaches wear hats and have great hair but I don't believe it. He just isn't following WVU tradition of coaches with great hair. He has no school pride. He needs to go.

          • Dougie

            That was great!

  • SPIKE BISHOP

    I Just Don't Follow The "Color Of The Shirt" Fiasco. That Doesn't Make You Better Or Worse As Far As Coaching Goes!!! As For He'll Leave, That's A "Sucker" Bet, I Bet You Continue To Post Your Thoughts!!!!

  • Dave

    We will absolutely have to bring our 'A' game to beat the Terps. They have a good QB with 2 great receivers in Diggs and Deon Long (former Mountaineer). Play great and we win; play good and we lose a close one; play mediocre and we lose by at least two touchdowns. Let's play great!!! Go Mounties!!

  • Kevin

    I guess that WV logo on his shirt doesn't count for anything?? Who cares if it's black/white/green/red/blue/yellow/purple?? If HE likes it, feels comfortable in it, and the players can find him easier in it, then why not wear it? If you weren't so ignorant you would notice that our home jersey has a good bit of black in/on it anyway......

    • Ragweed

      OK Kevin. I can go with any of those colors except the green.......

  • j

    If all you have to whine about is what color shirt he wears you have a pretty easy life. I own black WVU shirts, and a couple grey ones. And I can guarantee I bleed gold and blue

    • William

      Why would you buy black or grey ones?
      Mountaineers are blue and gold, the other ones are ugly.
      True Mountaineer fans will always wear blue and gold. Chalk that up as your mistake.
      Throw those away and always wear Mountaineer colors(blue and gold)

      • Pudge

        You have nothing but gold and blue in your closet?

        Another swing and a miss for William.

      • Kevin

        Again, the new home uniforms have BLACK ON THEM!!!

    • Sosick O'William

      These numbskulls like Wet Willie who focus on what color shirts our coaches wear would themselves wear pink with lilac polka dots shirts if Nike paid them what they pay the coaches to wear black.

  • Phil M.

    I don't agree with your statement that WVU fans will want Dana gone at the end of the season. Who are we going to replace him with ?

    But I do agree that he needs top start sporting the old gold and blue. Enough of the black.

    • UGOTBEARDENVY

      see top line for explanation

    • Bobby M

      I dont care if he was wearing PINK Jammies! Just win the game!

      Coaches are like consultants! You dont hire them for their loyalties to the company. You hire them to get - the - job - done!

      Dear Coach Holgs: Please beat Maryland this weekend. PS: I dont give a CRAP what color shirt you wear during the game. Just win!

  • William

    Dana "You Know" Holgerson loves that black and white Nike Shirt. Why can't this coach wear Mountaineer colors blue & gold?
    answer - because this guy is not a true mountaineer and never will be. Its just a matter of time till he leaves WVU. By the end of this year, most WVU fans will want to run him out of Morgantown.

    • Bobby M

      TRUE! But heres the kicker - so WHAT????!!!???!??!??!?

      Even our "own" Gold and Blue MAN RR bolted out OF town! Whats it ALL mean? Who in the HECK cares!?? Whether Holgs is here FOR one more game or 500 - dont care AT ALL! I just HOPE whoever is the WVU coach on THE sideline tries to WIN the darn game! Until then they'll just KEEP comin and going - so WHAT?!


      Spot it up! Rock N ROLL Rumble coming to Maryland!

  • Joe Cool

    Will he be wearing Maryland colors like he has every game since he's been here?

    • UGOTBEARDENVY

      He wears the black shirt so the QBs can pick him out of the crowd. if he wore gold or blue he would blend in. its not because he doesn't like wearing our colors

      • Joe Cool

        I know he says that, but I would think gold for him while the other coaches wore blue would be better for that. There are also refs and the chain crew on the sidelines in black. As far as the game goes, WVU by 10. MD lost both of their corners and should be weak on D.

      • Larry

        I've heard that explanation before, personally I think it's bunk, why does every other head coach in D1 wear their team colors?

        • DC

          Every other coach in college does not wear their teams colors, a lot wear white for the same reason as DH wears black.

          • Larry

            Yeah, but the white is accented with their regular colors, his has no sign of WVU colors.

    • Dave

      I was getting ready to say what a nice shirt Dana had on. I've got one similar.

    • Double A

      you "people" are ridiculous, immature children... venting and ignorantly berating our head coach for his choice of clothing during a game that he is trying to coach his (and true Mountaineer fans) team to a victory for this program. Try discussing the actual game/games instead of whining like the morons you are over...a shirt... geez
