It is truly amazing that TOSU can attract talent from far away, out of the PAC 12's backyard, sight unseen.

This Buckeye Nation. It is large. It is everywhere.

Meanwhile, in Ann Arbor, Jim Harbaugh is planning a sleepover trip to Las Vegas in a Motel 6.

I think Urban, like all of the coaches before him adheres to the Woody principle. There are 3 things that can happen when you throw the ball and only 1 is good. If you can run all over an opponent, stick with the run. There's no need to pass.

Where Urban is different is that he will pass the ball based on numbers. 1 or 0 safeties back = play action pass. But if it's 4th and 1 we will still run it. Ohio State will never be a pass-first offense like the SF 49ers, simply because we historically have had the linemen and RBs to run the ball effectively.

You make a fair point. 

Kevin Wilson only has limited control. He can influence which WRs and TEs are on the field but he can't make them catch. He isn't the QB coach. Those positions could thrive or still struggle.

The best he can do is to oversee the organization of the offense and make timely play calls, but it's up to the players and position coaches to execute within the plan.
