Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman has a lot to be excited about this year.
It’s not just Braxton Miller’s improved accuracy. It’s not the four senior starters who anchor and lead his offense along the line. It’s not the experienced wide receivers who are coming into their own, the first-year players primed to make an impact or the nearly limitless depth the Buckeyes have at running back.
It’s that Ohio State has all of this going at the same time. With the season nearing and the Buckeyes pegged as one of the few national title contenders, everything seems to be coming together for Herman and his offense.
What’s not to like about that?
Ohio State is in its final week of fall camp, which will be followed by game-week preparations for the Buckeyes’ season opener against Buffalo. That gives Herman one more week to round his offense into shape before the coaching staff turns its attention, and practice time, to a tailored game plan.
Herman met with the media Monday afternoon and shared his thoughts on the Buckeyes’ offense. According to Ben Axelrod of BuckeyeGrove.com, Ohio State is operating at a much higher level than they were last year.
We’re much faster, we’re much more well oiled if you will with our jet pace and our uptempo stuff. It’s running a lot smoother, definitely. I do know this: I sleep a lot easier at night than I did last year at this time.
