    Good write up. I totally did not expect this outcome but am grateful for it.
    I think CTH has shown us something. Two solid coordinator hires, kept recruiting humming along, and now this – a total domination – to head into the off season.
    I think this is why you let this play out. We once thought CTH was a great hire. I don't think we were wrong.
    IMO, the difference tonight was the pass pressure we were able to generate. And much of it came from the DL, not blitzes although those helped too. Ossai had a coming out party tonight. Break out the piñata, I'm on board!
    Play calling was SO much better tonight. Even though CTH won't be doing that next year.

    I didn't go to the game in Columbus but everyone I know said it was bad and they wouldn't go again.
    One time during the Peter the Great run, I was walking out of the Cotton Bowl and some young women gave some sooners the HOOK'EM Horns sign as they drove by in a Jeep. One drunk sooner took offense to this (later he said he thought they flipped him the bird) and tried to open the door on the side of one of the women with his fist balled up. Luckily for her the door was locked so the drunk idiot sooner (redundant I know) put his fist through the back window of the Jeep they were in however in the process he cut his hand up really bad. Long story short, that dumbarse sooner left that day knowing Texas won and with a badly cut-up hand.

    tejasrulz reacted to Aaron Carrara in Texas makes it Official: Yurcich named Offensive Coordinator   
    Official release via Texas Athletics:
    Austin – Mike Yurcich, who has been a key cog in some of the nation’s most explosive offenses at Ohio State and Oklahoma State over the past seven seasons, has been named offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Texas, head coach Tom Herman announced Sunday.
    “I talked with a number of coaches as we tried to find the best fit at offensive coordinator, and Mike is a guy who really stood out,” Herman said. “I’ve admired his work for many years, he’s very highly regarded and respected in the coaching world, and in talking at length with him, I was extremely impressed with what he’ll bring to our staff. He knows our conference well from his time at Oklahoma State and, including the run he had with Ohio State this year, has played a big part in some of the nation’s best offenses for the past several years. All of that said, what impresses me most about him is how he works with and develops players and the creative ways he utilizes all of his weapons on offense.”
    Yurcich (YER-sitch) has spent 20 years coaching at the collegiate level, including 14 as an offensive coordinator, and most recently served as passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Ohio State during the 2019 season. Prior to that, he spent six seasons as offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State from 2013-18.
    “When looking at offensive coordinator positions, Texas is a no-brainer career move,” Yurcich said. “I’m excited to work with coach Herman and the entire staff. Having recruited the state of Texas, and having coordinated in the Big 12, I’m excited and proud to represent UT Football as its next offensive coordinator.” 
    This season, Yurcich helped the Buckeyes to a 13-1 record and a trip to the College Football Playoff, while molding sophomore QB Justin Fields into a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, the Walter Camp Football Foundation (WCFF) Player of the Year Award, and the Davey O’Brien Award.
    The Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, Fields was named second-team All-America by the WCFF, Associated Press, American Football Coaches Association and Football Writers Association of America. Fields ranks second in Ohio State single-season history with 40 passing touchdowns, which is third in the nation this year, while throwing just three interceptions for the nation’s best touchdown to interception ratio. He was also third in school history with 3,273 passing yards, and he accounted for a total of 51 touchdowns, just three shy of Dwayne Haskins’ Big Ten record of 54 set last season. Fields finished the season responsible for 306 points, which is third in the nation, while his passing efficiency rating of 181.40 is fifth.
    Overall, Ohio State in third in the nation in scoring offense, setting a school single-season record with 46.9 points per game, and is fifth in total offense with 529.9 yards per game, which is second in school history. The 656 total points scored this year are the second-most in program history and 16 behind the 2014 team’s single-season record when the offense was guided by Herman. The Buckeyes rank fifth in the nation in team passing efficiency with a rating of 180.51, while leading the nation in third-down conversions at 55.2 percent. 
    Prior to his time at Ohio State, Oklahoma State experienced one of its great offensive eras under Yurcich, with the program averaging 38.0 points per game and 478.3 yards per game throughout his six-year run, compiling a record of 52-24 with four 10-win seasons and four bowl game victories. That included two appearances in New Year’s Six games – the 2016 Sugar Bowl and the 2014 Cotton Bowl. The Cowboys scored 40 or more points 35 times and put up 50 or more points 15 times.
    In 2018, Oklahoma State’s offense ranked in the top 15 nationally in scoring offense (13th, 38.4 ppg), total offense (10th, 500.2 ypg), passing offense (10th, 309.8 ypg) and total first downs (7th, 339). The Cowboys also ranked second in the Big 12 in rushing offense (190.3 ypg) and rushing touchdowns (30). Leading the way was walk-on quarterback Taylor Cornelius, who Yurcich developed into a top-10 ranked player nationally in passing yards (4th, 3,978), passing yards per game (6th, 306.0 ypg), passing touchdowns (8th, 32), total offense (6th, 337.3 ypg), points responsible for (5th, 252) and points responsible for per game (6th, 19.4 ppg).
    The 2017 Oklahoma State offense was arguably the best in school history, featuring a 4,000-yard passer in Mason Rudolph, two 1,000-yard receivers in James Washington and Marcell Ateman and a 1,000-yard rusher in Justice Hill. That group led the Cowboys to a 10-3 season and a No. 14 final national ranking, capped by a win over Virginia Tech in the Camping World Bowl.
    The Cowboy offense led the nation in passing yards (389.2 ypg), was second in total offense (568.9 ypg) and fourth in scoring (45.0 ppg). Rudolph was the winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award as college football’s best senior quarterback, and Washington won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s outstanding receiver. Operating in Yurcich’s offense for his entire college career, Washington finished as Oklahoma State’s all-time leading receiver with 4,472 career yards, a mark that ranked second in Big 12 history.
    The offense set single-season school records for total offense, total offense yards per game, yards per play, passing yards, pass efficiency, passing yards per attempt, passing yards per game and first downs, among numerous other records. It reached the 50-point mark in six games and eclipsed 500 yards of offense nine times, including a school-record 747 yards against Baylor.
    In 2016, Oklahoma State was one of only two Power Five conference teams to produce a 4,000-yard passer (Rudolph), a 1,000-yard rusher (Hill) and a 1,000-yard receiver (Washington). The offense ranked in the top 20 in the nation in total offense (14th, 494.8 ypg), scoring offense (17th, 38.6 ppg), passing offense (9th, 323.9 ypg) and passing efficiency (158.37). The Cowboys posted a 10-3 record, a No. 11 final national ranking and defeated Colorado in the Valero Alamo Bowl.
    Yurcich coordinated a two-quarterback system in 2015 that was a central reason for Oklahoma State finishing 10-3 with a top-20 ranking and earning a berth into the Sugar Bowl. Rudolph ranked 17th nationally in passing yards (3,770) and seventh nationally in yards per completion (14.3 ypc). J.W. Walsh was responsible for 156 points despite having only 162 total offense attempts (0.92 points responsible for per total offense attempt). Rudolph and Walsh combined to throw 34 touchdown passes. As a whole, the offense ranked 14th in the nation in scoring (39.5 ppg), 22nd in total offense (480.0 ypg) and seventh in passing (353.2 ypg).
    In 2014, Yurcich oversaw an offense that produced Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year Tyreek Hill and ranked in the top 13th nationally in red zone offense (.905). In his first season in Stillwater in 2013, the offense ranked 14th nationally in scoring (39.1 ppg) and 29th in passing offense (277.2 ypg). The Cowboys finished with a 10-3 record, a No. 17 final national ranking and an appearance in the Cotton Bowl.
    Over Yurcich’s six years at Oklahoma State, the program ranked fifth nationally in passing yards per game (315.9), 11th in touchdown passes (179), seventh in total yards per game (478.6) and sixth in scoring (38.0 ppg).
    Yurcich was hired at Oklahoma State after two seasons (2011-12) as offensive coordinator at Shippensburg University. His first Shippensburg team set numerous school records, including points scored, touchdowns and total offense. His second led the NCAA Division II in total offense (529.2 ypg) and was second in scoring (46.9 ppg) and passing (387.7 ypg) during an 11-2 campaign.
    Quarterback Zach Zulli was one of his most decorated players, winning the 2012 Harlon Hill Trophy as the top player in Division II.
    Yurcich coached six seasons at Edinboro University from 2005-10, handling quarterbacks and wide receivers in 2005 and adding offensive coordinator duties to his title for the five seasons between 2006 and 2010.
    A four-year stay (1999-2002) at Saint Francis (Ind.) coaching running backs, quarterbacks and ultimately serving as offensive coordinator in 2002 was Yurcich’s introduction into the coaching profession. He then moved on to an offensive graduate assistant position at Indiana University for the 2003 and 2004 seasons.
    A native of Euclid, Ohio, Yurcich is a 1999 graduate of California University in Pennsylvania. He and his wife, Julie, who is from Youngstown, Ohio, and was an All-America cross country runner at Edinboro, have three children: sons Jack and Clay, and a daughter, Maria.

    Gundy made some real bad decisions that cost his team the game. On the 53 yard FG attempt just before the half, aggy got the ball where it was marked so why not try and get the 1st down on 4th and 1? okie lite had the around 1:30 seconds to move the ball forward or score a TD even if they would have picked it up.

    Well I'm hoping that it is a good game and Texas wins. I know Utah has a good record, but Texas may be healed up for a change and very well could win the game. I do think it was time to change the offensive and defensive coaches. My thoughts on Coach Herman is to let him stay for a long time. He is a good coach, I know many people want a coach fired anytime we do not win. Lots of injuries this year and very young players.

    Duncanville would have lit NS up with him as QB. Be that said, Herman needs to start recruiting that FR who took his place. For a kid (looked like a young man) who was in JR High school last year, he played very well.
