Wyoming coach Dave Christensen in March decided to take over the play calling duties in the wake of offensive coordinator Gregg Brandon’s departure to New Mexico State.

In doing so, Christensen assured anyone who was listening that the 2013 Wyoming Cowboys would be the “fastest” team in the country.

We’re not talking 40 times, we’re talking amassing a lot of plays similar to the offense Christensen directed while the offensive coordinator at Missouri.

"We have been a no-huddle offense, but I felt that, in the last few years, our tempo has slowed down drastically," Christensen told SiriusXM College Sports Nation. "It's unacceptable for what I want to do what I have in mind as an offense. We're trying to get back to a tempo that's maybe a little greater than when I was at Missouri."

To make sure there was no confusion about Christensen’s intentions, Christensen tweeted out a makeshift movie poster with his team starring in “FastNFurious 13” thus joining the ranks of coaches with a Photoshopping fetish.

Christensen, who spent 11 years as the OC at Missouri, ran 1,112 and 982 plays in his final two seasons with the program. In contrast, Oregon, which is widely considered the nation’s fastest team, ran 1,058 plays last season and ran 1,.024 in 2010 when they played for a national title.

Nevada led the Mountain West Conference in play run last year with 1,080. Wyoming ran a paltry 852, which ranked seventh in the conference.
