Polishing Act

With all of the game plan installed prior to arriving in Florida, West Virginia's offensive practice sessions are geared toward cleaning up mistakes and getting in as many reps as possible before Friday's Gator Bowl.

Mullen noted that West Virginia developed its game plan and installed it in the practice sessions conducted prior to the Christmas break, and now is turning its energies toward getting practice reps to make execution second nature before kickoff.

"We need to make sure we're executing. That's what this week is about," Mullen said. "It's a player's sport. They have to go out there and make plays, and if you have more time to do that, you expect a little better execution."

Mullen, who has been an intense presence during WVU's first two practices of the week, will also be working with graduate assistant Pat Kirkland in the coaches box for the game. Mullen has full confidence in Kirkland, who has been an unsung member of West Virginia's staff over the past few seasons.

Mullen also discussed some of the things he expects to see from Florida State, and listed some of the challenges that the Seminoles will provide to his offense.
