houstonchronicle Thursday, August 29, 2019 3:54:00 PM EAT

Lincoln Riley said : "If you’re not evolving with times defensively, I think you’re certainly going to be at a disadvantage.ȁ#x201d; The most maligned coaches in the Big 12 are defensive coordinators. A conference team has topped the country in total offense for six straight seasons. And in 2011, the conference’s best offense was No. 2 nationally. From 2008 to 2018, the conference churned out four Heismans and five winners of the Davey O’Brien Award, which honors the country’s top quarterbacks. Keep in mind, this is such a quarterback-heavy league that six of the top 10 single-game passing performances in NCAA history belong to the Big 12. The top single-season and career marks for passing yards for a Power Five quarterback are Big 12 guys. The two best seasons for receivers in Power Five leagues also came from the Big 12. But with this latest round of coaching hires, the Big 12 may no longer be stereotyped as a conference that solely plays the type of offenses that reel off pinball numbers. It was trending that way even before this latest spin of the coaching carousel. The Big 12's offensive zenith probably was in 2015, when the top teams in the country were Baylor, Texas Tech and TCU. Oklahoma was seventh. Oklahoma State and West Virginia were in the top 25. The Bears fell back when Art Briles was fired in May 2016. That’s also the same season Campbell was hired to revive Iowa State. He did it through playing better defense and relying on running back David Montgomery. In 2017, Texas’ Tom Herman brought a taste for defense and a balanced approach to the Longhorns' offense, which doesn’t rely on zippy plays. It was the only offense in the league last year not to boast a pass or running play of at least 50 yards. Yet Texas won 10 games and roughed up Georgia for the Sugar Bowl trophy. Herman doesn’t know Brown’s tendencies as yet and he hasn’t faced Miles. But he acknowledges that Klieman’s offenses at North Dakota State were ȁ#x201c;very physicalȁ#x201d; and that Wells will ȁ#x201c;want to run the ball.ȁ#x201d; Matt Rhule, who was hired by Baylor in December 2016, embraces power and the idea of a salty defense. He would prefer to win games with bruising running backs who leave a mark on the linebackers. That’s the football he knows best. He played for Penn State and cheered on the Big Ten. Basically, the only coaches remaining in the league who adore the beauty of a long, vertical pass and desire to see these throws throughout a game are in Oklahoma, separated by about 80 miles. Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy, the most tenured Big 12 coach, has stuck with what works best for him, even when he changes offensive coordinators. At the end of last season, Ohio State lured away Cowboys coordinator Mike Yurcich to be in charge of the Buckeyes' passing game. Gundy had discovered Yurcich at Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania. So Gundy turned to Princeton to hire new coordinator Sean Gleeson. ȁ#x201c;We're going to run the same system,ȁ#x201d; Gundy said of the hiring of Gleeson. ȁ#x201c;He's had success (with) pure drop-back quarterbacks, guys that could run around a little bit, he's been in 10- personnel, 11-personnel, 12-personnel. He's played with speed at times. He's young. He's a good technician with quarterbacks. He's got a bright personality. He's good in recruiting quarterbacks. We all know this.ȁ#x201d; Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley is the current ruler of offense, nationally. Plus, he was groomed at Texas Tech, which started the zooming Big 12 offensive trend in the early 2000s. The Sooners' offensive production is well known. They’ve produced the last two Heisman winners in Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. Riley is turning over the offensive keys this season to former Alabama starter Jalen Hurts. Riley loves an athletic quarterback. Does he see the Big 12 trending away from such big offensive production? ȁ#x201c;I think there will always be really good offenses in this league. I do. But I think the league will continue to evolve," External link

You see guys like this - Steve Smith, Barry Sanders, Tavon Austin, Tyreek Hill — some of those guys, because they're not as long as other athletes, they can get their feet in the ground quicker.

Lincoln Riley : “Yeah, a ton of respect. I thought he moved around well. I thought he really threw the ball well. There wasn’t many of the passes that weren’t on target. Made a lot of great throws. Didn’t give us too many opportunities. I thought he gave us one there on one of the deep balls that the guy ended up catching. I thought we had a chance to pick that one. But yeah, he did a great job. He played well. He’s a heck of a player. Obviously has a bright future, and he’s a great kid.

Lincoln Riley : “Yeah, CeeDee was phenomenal the whole night. ... He caught eight. We probably should have thrown him about 20. I mean, they had a hard time covering him. They tried some different things and Kyler and him made some great plays together. We started to protect better and gave him some time, so he was phenomenal. Yeah, Hollywood, honestly he was probably not as good as we thought he was going to be. He had some good days of practice. I thought there was honestly just some rust. He had about a whole month here where there was just very, very little that he could do. So we were a little worried about that today, even if he’s feeling pretty decent early. It’s just been a long time since this guy has done a lot, and then you add in a hot, muggy night. I thought conditioning was a little bit of a factor for him, which is understandable. We tried every way to condition him without aggravating the injury as possible. Yeah, I honestly probably thought we’d get a little bit more out of him, but as we got into the game you could tell he wasn’t quite himself. I’m proud of Charleston Rambo. He stepped in and made some big plays for us there, and it bodes well for the future for him” External link

houstonchronicle Thursday, August 29, 2019 3:54:00 PM EAT

Lincoln Riley said : "If you’re not evolving with times defensively, I think you’re certainly going to be at a disadvantage.ȁ#x201d; The most maligned coaches in the Big 12 are defensive coordinators. A conference team has topped the country in total offense for six straight seasons. And in 2011, the conference’s best offense was No. 2 nationally. From 2008 to 2018, the conference churned out four Heismans and five winners of the Davey O’Brien Award, which honors the country’s top quarterbacks. Keep in mind, this is such a quarterback-heavy league that six of the top 10 single-game passing performances in NCAA history belong to the Big 12. The top single-season and career marks for passing yards for a Power Five quarterback are Big 12 guys. The two best seasons for receivers in Power Five leagues also came from the Big 12. But with this latest round of coaching hires, the Big 12 may no longer be stereotyped as a conference that solely plays the type of offenses that reel off pinball numbers. It was trending that way even before this latest spin of the coaching carousel. The Big 12's offensive zenith probably was in 2015, when the top teams in the country were Baylor, Texas Tech and TCU. Oklahoma was seventh. Oklahoma State and West Virginia were in the top 25. The Bears fell back when Art Briles was fired in May 2016. That’s also the same season Campbell was hired to revive Iowa State. He did it through playing better defense and relying on running back David Montgomery. In 2017, Texas’ Tom Herman brought a taste for defense and a balanced approach to the Longhorns' offense, which doesn’t rely on zippy plays. It was the only offense in the league last year not to boast a pass or running play of at least 50 yards. Yet Texas won 10 games and roughed up Georgia for the Sugar Bowl trophy. Herman doesn’t know Brown’s tendencies as yet and he hasn’t faced Miles. But he acknowledges that Klieman’s offenses at North Dakota State were ȁ#x201c;very physicalȁ#x201d; and that Wells will ȁ#x201c;want to run the ball.ȁ#x201d; Matt Rhule, who was hired by Baylor in December 2016, embraces power and the idea of a salty defense. He would prefer to win games with bruising running backs who leave a mark on the linebackers. That’s the football he knows best. He played for Penn State and cheered on the Big Ten. Basically, the only coaches remaining in the league who adore the beauty of a long, vertical pass and desire to see these throws throughout a game are in Oklahoma, separated by about 80 miles. Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy, the most tenured Big 12 coach, has stuck with what works best for him, even when he changes offensive coordinators. At the end of last season, Ohio State lured away Cowboys coordinator Mike Yurcich to be in charge of the Buckeyes' passing game. Gundy had discovered Yurcich at Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania. So Gundy turned to Princeton to hire new coordinator Sean Gleeson. ȁ#x201c;We're going to run the same system,ȁ#x201d; Gundy said of the hiring of Gleeson. ȁ#x201c;He's had success (with) pure drop-back quarterbacks, guys that could run around a little bit, he's been in 10- personnel, 11-personnel, 12-personnel. He's played with speed at times. He's young. He's a good technician with quarterbacks. He's got a bright personality. He's good in recruiting quarterbacks. We all know this.ȁ#x201d; Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley is the current ruler of offense, nationally. Plus, he was groomed at Texas Tech, which started the zooming Big 12 offensive trend in the early 2000s. The Sooners' offensive production is well known. They’ve produced the last two Heisman winners in Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. Riley is turning over the offensive keys this season to former Alabama starter Jalen Hurts. Riley loves an athletic quarterback. Does he see the Big 12 trending away from such big offensive production? ȁ#x201c;I think there will always be really good offenses in this league. I do. But I think the league will continue to evolve," External link

Lincoln Riley : “Yeah, a ton of respect. I thought he moved around well. I thought he really threw the ball well. There wasn’t many of the passes that weren’t on target. Made a lot of great throws. Didn’t give us too many opportunities. I thought he gave us one there on one of the deep balls that the guy ended up catching. I thought we had a chance to pick that one. But yeah, he did a great job. He played well. He’s a heck of a player. Obviously has a bright future, and he’s a great kid. We got to know him and his family a little bit on the little award circuit, and that’s an awesome family. He’s got a magnetic personality, and obviously he’s a fantastic player” External link

Lincoln Riley : “Yeah, CeeDee was phenomenal the whole night. ... He caught eight. We probably should have thrown him about 20. I mean, they had a hard time covering him. They tried some different things and Kyler and him made some great plays together. We started to protect better and gave him some time, so he was phenomenal. Yeah, Hollywood, honestly he was probably not as good as we thought he was going to be. He had some good days of practice. I thought there was honestly just some rust. He had about a whole month here where there was just very, very little that he could do. So we were a little worried about that today, even if he’s feeling pretty decent early. It’s just been a long time since this guy has done a lot, and then you add in a hot, muggy night. I thought conditioning was a little bit of a factor for him, which is understandable. We tried every way to condition him without aggravating the injury as possible. Yeah, I honestly probably thought we’d get a little bit more out of him, but as we got into the game you could tell he wasn’t quite himself. I’m proud of Charleston Rambo. He stepped in and made some big plays for us there, and it bodes well for the future for him” External link
