Chris Carson Shows Value in Win over Kansas

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. After missing four consecutive games from a hand injury, senior tailback Chris Carson returned to the gridiron with a vengeance Saturday without missing a step.Oklahoma State clearly has their showcase tailback in true freshman Justice Hill – who Carson called the “lead man” on Saturday.But with Oklahoma State’s uptempo, high-power offense, Hill can’t shoulder the load by himself. At least he shouldn’t do it all by himself as a true freshman. They need him fresh down the stretch, thus the value of Chris Carson increases, and his return comes at a perfect time as OSU heads down the stretch of the season.“When a guy’s been out for a significant period of time, like Chris has, you gotta make sure you ease right back into it” offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich said of Carson after the game.On just 8 carries in getting him back in the swing, Carson had 59 yards on the ground and 2 touchdowns, an impressive 7.4 yards per carry that matched Hill’s YPC, although Hill toted it 22 times. He also added a receiving touchdown and was the teams second leading receiver with 27 yards through the air.Carson and Hill are two totally separate running backs, so it’s unfair to compare them. Hill is the explosive, shifty runner. Carson is a more polished pass blocker who has the size to push for tough yardage, as evidenced on Saturday with his red zone appearances that netted him 3 touchdowns, and is an equally talented receiver out of the backfield.After missing the last four games due to injury — Chris Carson ( @chriscarson29) bounced back with three touchdowns in #OKState‘s win. pic.twitter.com/rBgw9oDMDY— Nate Feken (@TheGreat_Nate) October 23, 2016Chris Carson not only looked fresh in his first game back, but appeared to hit holes with more confidence, and had overall a better vision as a runner than he has previously. In a run in the red zone yesterday, he ran into a wall, but instead of pushing ahead, he reversed field to find a hole and burst through it for six:It’s clear that the backfield is more productive with Hill leading the charge, and Carson proved his worth to the group on Saturday and returned to form like we’ve come to know him:Chris Carson high jump!! https://t.co/DwB84MRbUf— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) October 22, 2016With the running game seemingly hitting its stride, Carson will be in a new role playing backup to a true freshman. But it seems his new role is one that could prove to be very valuable for OSU in the home stretch of the season.last_img read more

Film Study: What Makes KSU’s Run Game Unique

The Oklahoma State Cowboys will have their hands full this Saturday against one of the best ground attacks in the Big 12. The Kansas State Wildcats, who are averaging almost five yards a carry, beat teams by keeping the ball on the ground and controlling the clock. Plenty of teams do that. But what makes them unique is how they do it.Kansas State has always had an adept run game. Everything for their offense sets up in between the tackles. They frequently get eight and 10 yard gains on the ground just by running the ball on simple plays like this.izOr this.wcwhamThey will also frequently add downfield route attachments, creating their infamous “pop” play.popBut what makes them truly unique is not the plays that they run. Rather, it’s how they run them. As opposed to another run-first team like Stanford, which packs everyone on the line to create more gaps, Kansas State just increases their lineman’s spacing to make their pre-existing gaps bigger.Look at these graphics below and notice the varying splits of the offensive line. There are two huge gaps, wider than the size of an average offensive lineman, on both sides of the center.ksugapThey run this quite frequently, not only in their wildcat package (above) but in their standard offense.ksugap2These huge gaps open up holes in the run game. If linebackers try and shoot the gaps, they give up their own gaps and leave defense vulnerable to both the outside run game and the pass game over the middle.If the defensive line doesn’t adjust, they allow the offensive line to outflank them, which the offense can take advantage of with outside runs.While it may not look like it at first glance, Kansas State does a lot of interesting things in their run game. If OSU wants to win in Manhattan this Saturday, they’re going to have to shut down the Wildcats’ ground attack, and that is no small feat.How do you think the KSU run game will fare against the OSU front?

Instant Recap: Oklahoma State Survives Scare in Manhattan 43-37

first_imgAfter giving up an 11-play methodical drive with zero pass attempts from the Kansas State Wildcats on the opening possession of the game, Oklahoma State seemed to be out-manned in the running game on defense all day — but still found a way to overcome the mismatch.The Cats took advantage of a fast start to race ahead to a 13-0 lead, but strong play from Mason Rudolph and his receiving corps. sparked a resurgence with two straight scores to put the good guys ahead, 14-13 with 14:00 left to play in the second quarter. Jhajuan Seales was active, Chris Carson made several impressive appearances in the running and passing game, but it was the play of Blake Jarwin that helped OSU in the most surprising way. Going into the half, Jarwin lead OSU in receiving with 2 receptions for 96 yards and a TD — where he finished the day and notched a career high.The Cowboys secured a 21-16 lead at the half, and took the ball the first out of the gate in the second half. But the offense sputtered in the third quarter and was littered by miscues; first, a muffed punt by Barry J. Sanders; then, a pick-six thrown by Mason Rudolph that handed K-State the lead. And to add to the disastrous third, Oklahoma State had a punt blocked that gave the Cats field position in favorable territory along with the momentum.Kansas State capitalized on the turnover and, on the ensuing offensive possession, marched down for a rushing touchdown to take a commanding 30-21 lead.But the Cowboys weren’t done yet, as they responded with a score of their own to bring it to 30-28, and battled back and forth offensively late into the fourth. It was Junkyard James Washington who blew the game wide open with a monstrous 82-yard reception to put them within two with 7:45 to play in the fourth. Ohhhhhhh boy. pic.twitter.com/HLW8PyzeUE— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 5, 2016After a much needed stop late in the fourth, the Cowboys took over possession on offense with around 6:00 left on the clock, and drained it all the way down on a 3:39 second drive that netted OSU 8 points — first on a powerful Chris Carson touchdown run that was capped by a Jalen McCleskey duck that somehow landed in the hands of Rennie Childs to convert the two-point conversion and put them up by six.K-State took over possession and marched all the way down the field to the four-yard line with less than 10 seconds to go, but an OFFENSIVE pass interference call backed the Cats up 15 yards and on the final play of the game, Kansas State’s pass attempt to the end zone was picked off by Jordan Sterns.

Oklahoma State Top Football Target Making Official Visit This Weekend

first_imgOklahoma State’s top target on the gridiron is making his official visit to Stillwater this weekend for the Texas Tech game. The top target, Evan Fields, is a safety and supreme athlete from Midwest City, OK, with offers from K-State, OSU, and high interest from the Sooners. He made his official visit to Manhattan last weekend, where he saw the Pokes come from behind to topple the Wildcats.Official visits are paid for by the university, which means they are able to roll out the red carpet to try and impress the recruit. So far, so good on that front. Here’a a pic of his room during the visit.https://twitter.com/Evan4_/status/797471078360682496The 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect from Mike Gundy’s alma mater is a bit of a late bloomer on the recruiting front. Although OSU just jumped in recently, make no mistake he is one of the most wanted prospects by the OSU staff. With good reason, he’s a hard-hitting safety with excellent cover skills who would make a perfect fit on the back end of Glenn Spencers defense.With OSU set to lose Jordan Sterns and Derrick Moncrief at safety this year, they need someone to come in and contribute immediately at safety. Fields certainly fits that mold. While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Vincent Taylor Could Win Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year

first_imgVincent Taylor has been Oklahoma State’s most important defensive player so far this year. The numbers are stunning for a defensive lineman.36 tackles3 blocked kicks2 forced fumbles9.5 tackles for loss5.5 sacksAnd all of this from the defensive tackle position! Look at these lists. He’s the only one at the top along with Aaron Curry of TCU that plays defensive tackle and not defensive end or linebacker.screen-shot-2016-11-16-at-9-49-48-am screen-shot-2016-11-16-at-9-49-22-am“He might win defensive player of the year,” said Carson Cunningham on our podcast on Monday. “This guy has become of one of the great defensive tackles OSU has ever had. That’s not hyperbole at all. He’s been sensational. When you look up and down the Big 12, who’s going to beat him out for Defensive Player of the Year?” Mike Gundy agreed.“He’s up there with being as good as any player we’ve had on the defensive side of the ball for us,” said Gundy. “He’s come a long way and made great strides in the last six months. He’s another guy that, a year from now, can really position himself to make some good money and have the opportunity to play this game for another six or seven years just seeing the strides he’s made over the last six months.”[email protected] on #okstate DT Vincent Taylor: “He’s up there with being as good as any player we’ve had on the defensive side of the ball.” pic.twitter.com/XAYD2YugiW— Cowboy Football (@CowboyFB) November 15, 2016Only two DTs have won Big 12 DPOY in the last seven years — Ndamukong Suh in 2009 and Andrew Billings last year. But Taylor is positioning himself nicely. There are certainly bigger names — Malik Jefferson and Jordan Willis come to mind — but I’m not sure there has been a player on the defensive line who has had more of an impact on his team’s season than Taylor.Rasul Douglas of West Virginia could stake that claim with a league-leading six picks on the conference’s best defense. Maybe one of the TCU DEs based on sacks depending on how they finish. But Taylor is certainly up there. And his defense has been pretty solid throughout the year.If he has a big Bedlam game and OSU wins the Big 12, he could end up with OSU’s first-ever outright Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year award (Emmanuel Ogbah shared it last year with Billings).

Ramon To Safety, Edison-McGruder Back To Linebacker In Spring Ball

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. Let the exam begin. At coach Mike Gundy’s news conference Monday, he confirmed former cornerback Ramon Richards and former safety Kenneth Edison-McGruder have new roles: Richards at safety and Edison-McGruder back down at linebacker.Both have spent time at those positions in high school and on the Oklahoma State football team, but this is permanent, according to the spring media guide.LOOK: 2016 starting cornerback Ramon Richards (@chief_vii) is listed in the #OKState spring media guide as a SAFETY. pic.twitter.com/TzxzH5XVPo— Hayden Kyle Barber (@HK_Barber) March 6, 2017Richards said because of that experimental experience, the move isn’t a difficult one.“Playing the position is nothing new to me,” Richards said. “As long as I get to go out there and make plays, I’m comfortable.”A change from safety to linebacker is a bit of a formality for Edison-McGruder. He was the Cowboys’ third safety last year behind Jordan Sterns and Tre Flowers. He played a decent amount of snaps, particularly after defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer started using a 3-3-5 defense against Texas Tech.Edison-McGruder finished with 40 total tackles, which was more than starters Ashton Lampkin, Cole Walterscheid and Jarrell Owens.“As y’all know, I like to put my head in,” he said. “So that’s not a big problem at all. I love the physicality.”Gundy said he particularly likes the Edison-McGruder move because it makes him a more valuable asset for the NFL.“A lot of (the move) has to do with that 3-down, 4-down (linemen) concept we’re going to now,” Gundy said. “Having that guy that can play both, if you really have one of those guys, then they’re potentially a high-round pick because they’re skilled.”For Richards, he said he considers himself a defensive back, not a corner and not a safety. Last year, though he definitely gave up his cut of big plays, he added a kind of heightened toughness and willingness to put his head into a pile.His tackle numbers are indicative of that. 20161364 2015715 20141242center_img “I honestly talk to Jordan every day,” Richards said. “He gives me more pointers on maturing as a young man more than anything, spiritually and whatnot, but as far as safety goes, he just tells me to go out there and make plays, believe in myself, keep the confidence and keep my instincts and don’t think too much.”That’s so Sterns talking. Edison-McGruder said aid on his part won’t be necessary.“Ramon don’t need no pointers,” he said. “He’s a great player. I think he’s gonna go out there and dominate.”As for Flowers, Richards said he connected with him the day he got on campus. But back then, it wasn’t peaches and cream like it was last year for a group that was clearly as close as any other group on the field.“We went through a really rough first year, my first year,” Richards said. “We knew what it felt like to be at the bottom. We’ve grown from that. So me and Tre’s relationship has been strong since the beginning.”There also might be some strategy behind the moves. With Richards back at safety, the younger corners such as A.J. Green and Rodarius Williams, along with Darius Curry, will get almost all the snaps in the spring. Those guys have played virtually no game snaps, and with Lampkin gone, at least one of them will have to contribute.At linebacker, adding Edison-McGruder would bolster the group for sure, but it’s probably already set without him. Chad Whitener, Justin Phillips, Calvin Bundage, Patrick Macon, Kirk Tucker, Gyasi Akem just to name more than a few.With that, Spencer said it’s just a test, a test for Richards, McGruder and the litter of young corners.“We can always put Ramon back,” Spencer said. “That’s the good thing about spring ball, nobody’s keeping score. So if we had to line up tomorrow, I don’t know exactly what we’d do. Probably wouldn’t be this, but after four or five practices, we’ll see.” At safety, his numbers will have to at least hit last year’s again. He will fill Flowers’ role more toward the line of scrimmage, and Flowers will slide back and play center field like Sterns did. With that, Richards is in a pretty lucky spot with three safeties, former and present, who can help him through the transition. YearGamesTackleslast_img read more
