Mike Yurcich, the stage is yours. After being ripped up and down these internet streets for most of the last few years, Yurcich has (by most measures) slapped together back-to-back top 25 offenses in Stillwater. Last year, Oklahoma State finished No. 23 nationally in points per drive. This year, they improved on that, moving all the way to No. 17. This was third-best in the Big 12 behind OU and Texas Tech.Here is a look at the top 25 nationally.OU had a ridiculous year (although not as ridiculous as the 3.99 points per drive they scored back in 2008). OSU was right there with the likes of Michigan, Louisville and Pitt (wait, Pitt?!) These numbers are mildly misleading because, you know, New Mexico didn’t play the same schedule as Oklahoma State, but New Mexico also doesn’t have the same caliber players as Oklahoma State does.This was actually one of the better years in the Gundy era (which coincides with the time since this stat was introduced in the mid 2000s). Here are all the PPD numbers for OSU dating back to 2007. It is the best offense OSU has had since Todd Monken left in 2012.And guess what … it’s going to be even better in 2017.
