Check out our new offensive coordinator on ESPN

Curious about UK’s new offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson? West Virginia is currently playing Texas A&M in the Liberty Bowl in Dawson’s last game on the staff, so if you wants a sneak peek at what UK’s offense may look like next season, switch on over to ESPN. Right now, the Aggies are up 7-3, but Dawson and head coach Dana Holgorsen have the Mountaineers moving.

    I just don’t know how much you can tell about an O-coordinator who doesn’t call plays. He may be amazing. But I’d rather watch tape of a game where he calls plays.

    Someone who is not stuck at work right now like me, please let the rest of us poor schmucks know how the game goes, and how UWV’s offense looks.

    I think the story line that he doesn’t call plays does not really mean he is not involved in play calling. From reading around it is more like he sends down 2-3 plays and Head Coach picks one. To act like he has no involvement or that he isn’t learning anything from that process is a bit of a stretch.

    The touchdown pass was a very simple WR screen called at the right time. The backup QB took a 3 step drop, his his WR perfectly where he could turn upfield and the WR ran it for the TD. Thing is, 7/10 throws Towles would have thrown that pass too high, to low, or behind the WR.

      It sure helped that A&M bumbled a bit on coverage. Blitzed from the opposite side and left them lacking on defenders. Very good blocking from the WRs and a gap just wide enough to run up the sideline for the TD.

    WVU is moving the ball pretty well. 45 yd TD pass on a WR screen. Couple nice long passes. 130 yd passing in the 1Q which just ended. 20-14 WVU

    Another deep ball for a TD, approx 45 yd in the air, caught around the 3 yd line. A&M has a lot of break downs on defense so it is hard to tell whether WVU is good. 😀

      WR had 5 yards separation on his defender.

    He’s calling a really good game so far. It helps to have White at wide receiver.

    I watched the 2nd half and liked what I saw. It would have been more enjoyable if their QB could have thrown the ball in a lake. He passed like CJones shot against UK.

    Like the down-field throws. But Howard, the WVU QB was terribly inacurrate compared to the A&M freshman. A&M just had a better team overall. Their bad defense even stepped up.
    Glad the SEC won. That’s 2 for 2, counting SC’s win.

    Looks like Billy Gillis Pie in that photo. Hope that is no bad omen.
