seriously ahead of the three-Test summer tour of A

MORGANTOWN, W. Nike Air VaporMax White Black .Va. -- West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen has gone from the hot seat to leading West Virginia to a sizzling start to the season.No. 12 West Virginia (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) is a surprising early contender in the conference after being tapped in the preseason to finish seventh.Im excited where were at, Holgorsen said. But its just five games. Weve got seven more important ones coming up.Faced with plenty of questions about his own job security entering 2016, Holgorsen has put together strong performances -- and had some good luck along the way.Kansas State missed a late field goal in a tight game earlier this month, and BYU nearly rallied from 16 points down in the fourth quarter but turned the ball over on its final drive near West Virginias end zone.A confidence boost came with West Virginias 48-17 dismantling of high-scoring Texas Tech on the road last Saturday. The celebration was limited to the two-plus hour plane ride home before preparations started for Saturdays home game with TCU (4-2, 2-1).You get over it real quick, Holgorsen said. Its pretty much you settle in and get back to work. This is our hardest game yet.To be determined: Whether his players heed his word about staying focused.It didnt work in 2012, when West Virginia started 5-0 and rose to No. 5 before its first full Big 12 season took a toll. West Virginia lost the next five games.I dont think anybody truly knows that answer until we go through it. And you all are thinking 2012. I know you all are, Holgorsen said. This is a totally different team.I think this team is a good group of kids that like each other and like playing the game. And they didnt listen when everybody was saying we sucked, and theyre not going to listen when everybody is saying were good. Its pretty much as simple as that.Win or lose, his players say Holgorsen has remained consistent with his perfectionist approach.Hes always going to be fired up, linebacker Al-Rasheed Benton said. Hes always going to be one of those guys that will get in your face if you arent doing exactly what you need to do. From the first game to the last game, he wont let up. He just wants to see you getting better and better each week.Holgorsens schemes certainly have changed.Holgorsen comes from the Air Raid coaching tree that included Hal Mumme at Iowa Wesleyan and later under Mike Leach at Texas Tech. But rather than relying on a passing attack, Holgorsen understood the need to evolve his running game, too.Wendell Smallwood was the Big 12 rushing champion a year ago. West Virginia now runs the ball 54 percent of the time. Quarterback Skyler Howard has shown hes dangerous with both his arm and his feet.On defense, Holgorsen has made it a greater priority to recruit junior college players and other transfers who can step right away. Despite having nine new starters this season, most of them are seniors.Holgorsen went 10-3 and won the Orange Bowl in his first season in 2011, then signed a six-year contract extension -- his last one -- in August 2012. But Holgorsen went 26-25 the next four seasons.Athletic director Shane Lyons told Holgorsen last December he could keep his job. Lyons later said no further contract discussions would be held until after the 2016 season.Lyons reiterated that point again this week. He did say the Texas Tech win accelerated the teams momentum.Thats what you want, you want to build your confidence, Lyons said. Thats what Dana and his staff have done.TCU coach Gary Patterson said hes noticed the Mountaineers have got a lot of energy and theyve got a lot of positive on their side right now.Its been fun watching them. Dana has done a great job. The kids are playing hard, Patterson said. Youve got to be able to go match that.---AP college football website: Nike Air VaporMax Light Violet Light Violet-Violet Dust .C. Lions has come to an end. Banks told TSN on Jan 2 that he had no interest in playing out the option year of his contract with the Lions in 2014, and he again made that clear in a conversation with Lions GM Wally Buono last week. Nike Air VaporMax Brown Yellow . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005.Forwards coach Steve Borthwick says England are excited about Sundays one-off Test with Wales at Twickenham, live on Sky Sports 3. The fixture replaces the traditional end-of-season non-cap international against the Barbarians and is being staged to assist the Rugby Football Union in compensating Aviva Premiership clubs for the disruption caused by last autumns World Cup.England will select their strongest available team for the last of three Twickenham matches in eight months against Warren Gatlands men, but are missing players from league finalists Saracens and Exeter, who meet at the same venue 24 hours earlier. The following day the Grand Slam winners head to Australia for a three-Test series against the Wallabies and Wales depart for New Zealand, before a season that effectively started in September 2014 because of the World Cup finally comes to a close.Borthwick insists England should expect to win on Sunday despite the unavailability of stars such as Billy Vunipola, Maro Itoje and Jack Nowell in front of what is expected to be a full house.From our perspective, this is a Test match. It feels like a huge and exciting Test match, the forwards coach said.At this point weve sold 78,000 tickets so its going to be a sell-out or very close to a sell-out. Luther Burrell is over missing the World Cup and is only focused on Englands upcoming games against Wales and Australia The supporters are excited about it and its a brilliant opportunity to be playing this game in May in what should be a good game. Nike Air VaporMax Carbon Grey Orange. Weve prepared the best we can and we want to win as many matches as we can.Leicester prop Dan Cole echoes those sentiments and is treating the contest seriously ahead of the three-Test summer tour of Australia.Cole admits he would rather have been lining up at Twickenham for the Tigers, but insists they are ready for a tough challenge. Dan Cole is ready for a tough test against vWales Ideally Id be playing in the Premiership final, but Im not. Its not a warm-up game, its a Test match, he said.For me its part of the Australia tour, a four-Test block. Its good being in camp because [head coach] Eddie Jones has put a real spring into the English step.Watch England v Wales on Sunday. Coverage begins on Sky Sports 3 HD at 2:30pm.
