    YURCICH'S OFFENSIVE EXPLOSIONS. Ohio State's passing game was quite literally the best its ever been last year, which makes brining in Mike Yurcich to help make things even better seem like a cheat code.

    The dude has quite the resume in a relatively short time in the coaching game.

    From Stephen Means of Cleveland.com:

    Yurcich’s career so far has been defined by taking an under-the-radar quarterback and turning him into a high-caliber player. He is responsible for four of Oklahoma State’s 10 best offensive seasons in school history. Over a six-year span, the Cowboys averaged 38 points and 478.3 yards per game. They scored at least 40 points 35 times, 50 points 15 times and 60 points three times.

    In 2018, he took Taylor Cornelius — who arrived in Stillwater, Okla., as a walk-on — and turned him into one of the top 10 quarterbacks in the country statistically. Cornelius finished the 2018 season with 3,978 passing yards and 32 touchdowns.

    ...

    Everywhere he’s been, Yurcich has led an offense that has broken records. Now he’ll coach a level of quarterback talent he hasn’t previously experienced. When spring practice begins, former five-star recruit Justin Fields, a transfer from Georgia, will be the most talented quarterback Yurcich has ever coached.

    “If a player like Fields is willing to listen to Mike, I think he’s only going to make him better,” Pignatiello said. “He’ll take that talent that he has and use it in the best way possible.”

    “Everywhere he’s been his quarterbacks have set records. Whether it was at Division III, Division II or at Oklahoma State. So any quarterback that wants to listen to him is going to set records.”

    I knew next to nothing about Mike Yurcich when he was hired, but I've never once thought badly of Oklahoma State's passing attack or quarterback play. Their offense has been as high-powered as it gets, and I couldn't tell you the last time they've signed a top-100 prospect.

    If Yurcich can average 478 yards with the guys signing at Oklahoma State – no disrespect – I understandably have extremely high hopes for his ability to work with some of the most talented players in the country.

    I love the concept presented in that last article: look what he's done with average talent; imagine what he'll do with our guys. The only problem is that this was the same thing that was said about Grinch before last season. I'm still fully on board the Yurcich train, though.

    I think Yurcich may have a more defined role on the offense than Grinch did on defense. And Wilson seems to be more open to others input than Schiano, imo

    I think that's probably right and reason not to blend the two.
