Nationally, Clemson finished 26th in total offense with 440.8 yards per game. The Tigers were 59th in rushing [158.5 yards] and 21st in passing [282.3 yards].
Even after the visits to Reno and Stillwater, Morris' hurry-up, no-huddle attack isn't going anywhere.
"We're not changing what we do. We're going to do what we do. Just to find a new wrinkle. There's always a better mouse trap," he said after Wednesday afternoon's practice.
Oklahoma State's pass-happy spread finished second in the country in passing in each of the last two seasons. During both seasons, Cowboy wide receiver Justin Blackmon was the Biletnikoff Award winner.
"They pass to win. We're more of a balanced attack," Morris said. "Could you go out there and get a few things? A few odd and end things -- the way they moved Blackmon around -- they did a great job of moving him around all over the field. That was kind of our approach.
"How did they move Blackmon around? What are the different concepts with him? Things like that. You go out and try to find a new wrinkle here and there. When you come back and add something, you throw something away. I'm a firm believer in that."
The visit to Nevada was focused on the running game. In each of the last two seasons, the Wolfpack have finished among the top-10 best rushing teams in the country.
"Over the last six years, they've been in the top-five in the country in total offense," Morris said. "And running the football, which is extremely important, they're very impressive. What are they doing out there that we could do?
"It may be one little, bitty thing -- the way we take a step or approach terminology."
The second-year coordinator thinks more will have to be done to improve upon last season's impressive showing.
"You can't do the same thing [as] last year and expect the same results. That's what we challenge our players with. That's what we challenge our staff with," Morris said.
Morris always looking to improve
