Urban at his prior press conferences is always saying he wants balance between the run and the pass which he has said is about 50:50. So, other teams hear Urban say this and are charting each play of the game. So other D-Coordinators know that Urban will NOT pass 75-80 percent of the time because Urban is conservative and forces his run-pass play calling balance. However, that is NOT working for Urban because he is being game planned by other D-Coordinators on his words of a 50-50 run-pass balance.
The Buckeyes need to go to a 75-80 percent pass heavy offense since that is the strength of the offense. A vertical and horizontal passing offense. A 10-yard pass by Haskins is like a long handoff for him since he is such a good passer.
