Herman: 'Last year we operated at a freshman, or remedial level'
Historically, year two of Urban Meyer's head coaching stops have been a year where his teams have seen drastic improvement on the offensive side of the ball.
As Brandon Castel of theozone.net points out, Meyer's Bowling Green squad went from four touchdowns and over 30 ppg in his first season to 65 total touchdowns and over 40 points per game in year two. At Utah, the offense went from 29 ppg to over 45 ppg over the span of a year.
Last season, the Buckeyes led the Big Ten with 37 points per game, and that's coming off a spring where they operated at a "remedial level" according to offensive coordinator Tom Herman.
“It's exciting to be ahead and to be in that place where we're at right now this spring of being able to teach the finer points. Last year was freshman level, maybe not even that, maybe remedial level, and so now we've graduated into sophomore or junior level. We're no where near graduate level yet, but we're working towards it.”
It's scary to think of what Herman (a finalist for the FootballScoop 2012 Quarterbacks Coach of the Year) and the Buckeyes are capable of when they reach that "graduate level" operation status.
Herman added that the offense has come a long way since last spring, and they've spent this spring focusing on the finer points of their offensive system.
“The good thing is that you don't have to spend time,or you spend less time at least, with the basics of formations and how we call things and the mechanics and the operation. And now you can start teaching the finer points a little bit.”
“What we are planning on doing offensively is being the best fundamental offensive unit in the country. We felt like last year we were just trying to get lined up and understand the schemes and what to do.” Herman added.
