Holgorsen's lounge

Bruce Feldman, who now writes for CBS Sports, spent last week with the West Virginia staff. He was there for LSU week and wrote a very good article about how the week played out for the offensive staff and quarterback Geno Smith. 

One of our favorite paragraphs was:

The Sunday evening practice is short. It's mostly special teams stuff and lasts under an hour. The team has dinner by 7:30. The staff is waist deep in LSU film. Most of the WVU coaches will go home soon after the team meal. Meanwhile, Holgorsen settles into what staffers affectionately call "The Lounge" to resume studying the Tigers. The 10-by-20 room next to the head coach's office, which used to be where former WVU coach Bill Stewart would smoke his cigars, has been remodeled and now has two theater-style seats, a few bar stools, an antique metal Coke cart, a Red Bull cooler and a 50-inch flat screen with an Xbox. Holgorsen likes the feel of the room for whenever he wants to have a one-on-one with a player. It's also an ideal spot for the coach and Spavital to get another look at a ferocious defense.

Show of hands please, who is surprised by the Red Bull cooler? Anyone...anyone?
