Major and Wyatt will put their stamp on the NEW offense moving forward!
Love the 4 wides and cutting the QB loose!
This team is young and 2013 will be fun!
agreed...Ash played an exceptional second half when he was allowed to play the position and wing it....very promising.
Love it! Spread based with the ability to go power when called upon
I love pistol sets. Major was nervous in the 1st half it appeared. He didn't want to take risks and didn't have a rhythm. The penalties didn't help that though. Mack understands we need that tempo.
Scored 5 points less than the season average and that included 3 turnovers.
I'll take a wait and see approach.
OSU held some pretty good offenses below they're averages this year.
I think he was afraid of getting Ash hurt with no real backup option. It seemed like it all changed after he called that first QB keeper and the Diggs interception. It was like he said screw it, lets go win this thing. You notice how many called keepers there were from that point on? Also, did you notice that unlike Harsin, he kept going back to what worked? Hopeful about next year and the increased tempo...
That is one thing that frustrated me about Harsin is that he a lot of times went away from what was working. WVU comes to mind. OSU in 2011.
What did OSU give up on average?

I agree with that take as well. I would have liked to see more wildcat but who am I to complain? Hook Em boys.
Came into the game giving up 19.75 points per game. It was a great 2nd half by the entire offense staff. Likely would have been more minus the whiff block by Espinosa.
Not too mention leaving 3-7 points on the table when Goodwin couldn't track the pass from Ash and then the FG got blocked.
He said that in his post game statements on the LHN.
+1 on more wildcat. Think we will get to see it on steroids next year with the predator in the gun.
Good to know. I'm stuck in TWC-ville
How often did they allow their QB to be sacked 10 times in a game? Their offense wasn't doing their defense a lot of favors, and yes, refreshingly, our defense had something to do with it.
I'll take a wait and see approach as well. I was very unimpressed with how we moved the ball on the ground, and we're nowhere good enough at any position on offense to rely on the pass as our prime mover. We don't have to run for 200 + a game, but we need to be competent at it, and it's not a coincidence that Mack has such a guady W/L record when UT outrushes it's opponents.
We'll see what Major comes up with.
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
Just looking it up but they played 5 top 60 total offensive teams (AZ, ASU, Oregon, BYU, UCLA) and gave up an average of 28.8 points per game and did not include UT's 31 point game tonight.
UT also had the benefit of 3 turnovers and a de facto home game.
Nothing wrong with taking a wait and see approach. 2nd half adjustments were great though.

I was shocked by how different the offense was in this game. It felt much more like a game called by GD than Harsin. We came out extremely conservative. The use of constraint plays in setting up the defense has vanished. It had much more of a random grab bag feel to it. Misdirection in the running game wasnt featured nearly as much.
I will give him credit for opening up the vertical passing game in the second half when OSU went up 27-17. I thought he also did a good job of using tempo to pressure the defense on our second to last TD drive.
It also felt like that we reverted to relying on the QB to almost singlehandidly carry the load on offense, at least in the second half anyway.
So in other words a return to the offense that lead Texas to one of the most dominant runs in college football history.
11-1, 13-0, 10-3, 10-3, 12-1, 13-1 = 69-9
Its ok, you can "release the good..."
Nobody is saying Major is the second coming, but people are excited that he stuck with what wa working AND evolved his gameplan as the game progressed.
And since you seem determined to undercut the performance, I ask you how many of those teams you list had a new OC calling plays without even one non-redshirted backup QB available to them, with a patchwork O-line? Not one is the answer...

FIFY. Now find me a VY or CM.
9 points against ASU were from the defense, and they turned it over 6 times against Oregon. No where did you also mention that OSU was 4-1 in those games.
