Big 12 Media Days always promises one thing: fantastic quotes! 2015 didn’t disappoint either. We were given everything from the funny to taking not so subtle shots, and nobody does it better than Dana Holgorsen.
5: Dana Holgorsen to the Red Bull girls
“I’m one of your better supporters.”
This happened outside the ballroom in the Omni Hotel, but it was just too perfect to leave off the list!
4: Dana Holgorsen if Running Game Will Lead The Offense
“Hope not. Geez, I still like to throw the ball a good bit, you know.”
Dana was just as funny on stage talking football. It’s no secret the offensive genius likes to air it out.
3: Art Briles was asked what he’s doing to combat penalties
“… trying not to commit them.”
You have to love his crass.
2: Gary Patterson On The CFB Playoff
“I thought the whole thing about going to a playoff was that they picked the four best teams.” Patterson said. “That’s what I was led to believe.”
We can make it out to be about conference championships or non-conference schedules, but the fact of the matter is, the CFB Playoff was tasked to one job. Find the best four teams, not the best four conference champions, or the best four teams with strong strength of schedule. Just the best four.
1: Dana Holgorsen on Lincoln Riley
“Mike Leach saw something in him as a freshman QB. And what he saw was a s***ty player and a great mind.”
How can you not love Holgorsen?
