LOOK: Dez Bryant, Tyron Johnson Exchange Tweets About OSU Offense

first_imgDez Bryant knows a thing or two about Oklahoma State and their high powered offense. And coming out of high school from Lufkin, he was a top 50 prospect — something him and former LSU receiver turned Oklahoma State transfer Tyron Johnson have in common. On twitter Thursday, Johnson mentioned Dez on twitter about what he plans to do when he scores for the first time in orange and black, and Dez had a seasoned response prepped and ready:I gotta throw up that ❌ when I score my first touchdown in that orange and black @DezBryant— 国王 (@_TBJXIII) September 23, 2016 Facts I got no choice but to work and have fun in this offense! https://t.co/TMqQt1YDle— 国王 (@_TBJXIII) September 23, 2016Johnson was a five-star prospect from New Orleans who signed with LSU in 2015 and spent his freshman year with the Tigers, but chose to transfer to Oklahoma State for a chance to play “in a more wide open offense.” That’s exactly what he will get at OSU, but unfortunately for OSU fans they’ll have to wait until next season to see him throwing up the X in the orange and black. They way ok state throw the football it becomes contagious ..it makes you work hard with out knowing it lol https://t.co/LrfAFYcBZ2— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) September 23, 2016center_img While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Film Study: Cowboy Run Game is Key Against Texas

It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. The Oklahoma State Cowboys had the most successful run performances against Baylor last week, but that might not be the case this week versus Texas.The Longhorns have a stout front seven, one of the better ones in the conference, and defend the run exceptionally well. They currently have the third-best run defense in the Big 12, giving up around 150.7 YPG on the ground.Offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich spoke on the Longhorns’ exceptional front on Monday.“They are very good at defending the inside run,” Yurcich said. “They’re stout up front and their structures and fronts take away a lot of inside runs, whether they are gap schemes or zones. They do a great job from the interior standpoint and where they’ve been hurt is the outside run, but when you get them stretched, it’s time to attack them on the inside. You can’t be exclusive or have one-dimensional-type runs.”Head coach Mike Gundy had the same sentiments on the ‘Horns.“The personnel that they play with is very rarely undersized at any position,” Gundy said. “They’re 300-pound guys that move well and that’s the situation that we’re facing this week.”The Cowboys have shown the ability to run the ball between the tackles as of late, but their outside run game is a different story. They ran a lot of outside zone against the Bears last week, and they often ended up as a tackle for loss because of backside pursuit:pursuit_tflThe contain players shedding their blocks:contain_tflOr a combination of the two:flow_tflYes, UT is coming off a 50-43 loss against Cal, but that was against a spread team. The Cowboys, despite what anyone tells you, are not a spread team anymore. While Cal had success on the ground in a lot of 10 personnel formations (one back, no tight ends), the Cowboys do it exclusively in either 11 or 12 personnel (one back, one/two tight ends). That means more players in between the tackles, both offensively and defensively.That does not mean that the Pokes won’t put together a spread game plan to try to replicate what Cal did offensively. But they’ll always go back to their base plays. If the Cowboys try and outside zone their way down the field against the Longhorns, players like defensive tackle Paul Boyette or linebacker Malik Jefferson will make sure that goes nowhere. OSU wants to run the ball on the outside, and that’s fine, but they’ll have to get creative if they want to find success.How would you game plan against Texas?

Behind Enemy Lines: Get To Know Texas

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. The Cowboys bring it home this week to face a well-rested no. 22 Texas Longhorn team coming off a bye week. College football analyst Phil Steele picked the talent-rich Longhorns as his most improved team for the 2016 season and while there’s a lot of football to be played, this underclassmen-laden team has an offense that is humming and a very talented defense.OffenseWhile the Cowboys had to adjust quickly from the Pitt ground-centric offense to the Baylor offense, this week will be much less of an adjustment as the Longhorns run the same style of attack as Baylor. “Two weeks in a row we’ve seen that same style of offense” says Coach Gundy as Art Briles’ disciple and former University of Tulsa offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert has really changed the offense in Austin.Against mostly Power 5 competition, the unit is scoring 44.7 points per game (13th in FBS) and racking up 500 yards of total offense, up from 26.4 points and 370.8 yards per game in 2015. So what’s changed? Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but the Horns may have found themselves a quarterback. True freshman Shane Buechele is averaging 240 yards per game while throwing for seven touchdowns to two interceptions and has twice been named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week in this young season.The comps to a recent Longhorn legend are rolling in and combined with the 18-Wheeler package for Tyrone Swoopes, the QB play has really looked different in Austin lately.Buechele has spread the ball around well, but senior slot receiver and top punt returner Jacorey Warrick has the most catches (13) at this point. Starting with Warrick are outside receivers junior Armanti Foreman (twin brother of RB D’Onta) and sophomore John Burt, the top target from 2015. An X-factor in the receiving group is QB-turned-WR Jerrod Heard who has a couple of scores and is prime for some wildcat packages and reverse passes.The two-headed monster in the UT backfield is likely the most talented the Cowboys will play outside of Norman as D’Onta Foreman and Chris Warren are an absolute handful. They run behind a very solid offensive line, even without senior captain Kent Perkins who was suspended for the OSU game. On the left side of the line is a pair of all-conference sophomores who lead the way in tackle Connor Williams and guard Patrick Vahe. Junior right tackle Tristan Nickleson is supposed to return for conference play as he was hurt in the opener. The tandem of solid runners and a solid line play has racked up 238.3 yards per game on the ground (23rd in FBS), put mildly as a good test for the deep Cowboy front seven.DefenseLed by former OSU assistant Vance Bedford at defensive coordinator, the Longhorns defense is full of talent and “have a lot of big guys up front that are strong and can certainly hold their gap…. and they have speed on the perimeter” per Coach Gundy. With that being said, after getting exposed by Cal in week 3, there was wide speculation that Charlie Strong would be letting go of Bedford, but those rumors were put out and Strong will have a stronger influence on personnel and play calling moving forward.The unit is similar to OSU in that they’ve had more success stopping the run than the pass and that will be something to watch for. While historically a strength of Charlie Strong teams, the problems against Cal were primarily allowing big plays with several completions over 20 yards. Losing all-conference corner Davante Davis early in the game surely played a role but so far allowing a league high nine passing touchdowns and forcing no interceptions, Mason and the General may be in line for a field day.Similar to Baylor, the Horns run a 3-4 defense that occasionally turns into a 3-3 stack. Up front are veteran tackles Poona Ford and Paul Boyette who both put up a solid four plus tackles a game. A major strength of the front is a solid pass rush that leads the conference with 3.67 sacks per game. You can expect to see plenty of defensive end/outside linebackers Breckyn Hager and Malcolm Roach, who both have a couple of sacks to their name.The leader of the defense is 2015 Big 12 defensive freshman of the year, linebacker Malik Jefferson, affectionately referred to as “the Predator” . Beside Jefferson is leading tackler Anthony Wheeler who has a great nose for the ball, averaging almost seven and a half tackles per game. The other guy in the unit is “fox” linebacker (DE/LB hybrid) Naashon Hughes who has played consistent football.In the defensive secondary, sophomore Devante Davis is the playmaker and former walk-on Dylan Haines, starter of 25 games at safety, led the team a year ago with five interceptions. Cornerback Sheroid Evans leads the team with three pass break ups and is another encouraging story: as a sixth-year senior he hadn’t played a game before starting against Notre Dame since being sidelined in October 2013 when he tore is ACL, recovered, and then tore his ACL again.An X-factor for the defense could be releasing 2016 five star safety recruit Brandon Jones into the secondary. A special teams ace thus far, he’s blocked two punts and with recent issues in the secondary, don’t be surprised to see Jones getting some good time in the defensive backfield. Another player expected to be worked in is talented sophomore safety DeShon Elliott to try and right the ship.While the questions are well detailed, one Texas writer put it best when asking “is the defense fatally flawed, or is it inexperienced potential waiting to harden into realized greatness?”A question that Saturday in Stillwater will bring us one step closer to answering.last_img read more
