Dana Holgorsen is one of the most outspoken critics of officiating in the college football world.
In a press conference today, he didn’t throw any haymakers over some controversial calls against TCU, but he did voice some apparent frustration, according to Tony Caridi of the Mountaineer Sports Network.
. @Holgorsendana says "it's a waste of time" to submit plays for officiating review to the league office. Says it won't change the outcome.

Two days ago, Holgorsen declined to talk about the officiating during the TCU-WVU game, but there still seems to be some frustration there.
West Virginia fans were livid with the officiating after the game, some going so far as to unironically allege that there is a conspiracy against the Mountaineers.
According to the Charleston Gazette-Mail’s Mitch Vingle, after the game, Holgorsen said, “I won’t talk about the officials. I’d like to, but I don’t want to.”
The Mountaineers have Texas Tech next, and what was thought to not be a struggle of a game a few months ago is looking like a tall task. The Red Raiders are playing solid defense, and their turnover margin is outstanding. West Virginia has had Texas Tech’s number in the past, and they’ll need to play a solid game to get a win at home. The Mountaineers are only a few plays away from an undefeated record, so a victory here is definitely within grasp.
