OSU’s offense finds the perfect balance

While none of the remaining receivers can match Bryant’s penchant for big plays, OSU has continued to get significant yardage through the air. Other Cowboys have been responsible for 29 receptions that covered at least 20 yards.

“To me, you have to do whatever your personnel allows you to do and whatever the defense gives you,” said Joe Wickline, OSU’s offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator. “It might be a lot of passing yards, it might be a lot of rush yards or it might be some of each. Basically, statistically, it just ends up wherever it ends up.

“You want your game plan to be balanced. If you can’t be great at passing or great at running, then you’d better be balanced. Being balanced is more than just run-pass. It’s the types of runs — inside, outside, counters, quarterback runs, option runs. Passing is the same way — dropback, rollout, play-action. It’s not just about the yards you get, but how you get them. You want to be balanced schematically.”

The use of the quarterback run game has become a staple of Gundy’s no-huddle spread offense.

In 2006, Bobby Reid rushed for 500 yards and five touchdowns. With 1,855 yards and 22 touchdowns, Zac Robinson is the most prolific running QB in school history.

Robinson sustained a shoulder bruise in the Nov. 14 victory over Texas Tech. Robinson did not play against Colorado last week, but has returned to the practice field and, Gundy says, is expected to play against the Sooners.
