"It's a different teaching technique," the Parkersburg native said. "There's just something different. I don't know [what it is]. I'm not sure.
"We had great coaches in the past. I loved Coach Johnson, but I think it's an honor to be able to learn from both of them, to tell you the truth. I think I've learned a lot from each guy so far."
Two players who have been limited in their ability to learn those lessons from Bedenbaugh this spring have been tackles Don Barclay and Jeff Braun, both of whom have been held out of action all spring after offseason shoulder surgeries.
But beyond the actual act of putting things into practice on the field, Jenkins said both players have been as involved as possible.
"Donny and Braun are two smart guys, so they're not really missing that much," Jenkins said. "Yeah, they're missing the physicality on the field, gelling with the team, but they're not missing assignments and stuff.
"They're smart guys. They're in the meetings They know what to do. They're in meetings answering questions just like they practiced, so I think they'll be fine."
Jenkins elaborated on those points, as well as his thoughts on whether the days of the offensive line being the "scapegoat" for West Virginia's offensive struggles have come and gone, in this interview.
