The main reason I was -and largely still am- a strong CPJ supporter is that given our current recruiting limitations (small fan base, limited curriculum, the hill, calculus requirement, male to female ratio, recruiting in SEC country, etc) CPJ's offensive system gives us the best chance of beating teams with superior talent. I believed that if our offense is executed properly from a blocking scheme standpoint (with proper in-game blocking adjustments), it can beat vastly superior defenses even if those defenses have time to prepare for it. However yesterday's game was yet another reminder that my initial reason for supporting CPJ's scheme might be faulty, that our offense -while virtually unstoppable with good, disciplined talent- cannot succeed against the more talented teams we play with the current talent we have and probably never will unless we radically (not marginally) improve the talent we recruit and such improvement will not take place unless fundamental changes are made in Tech's admission standards and curriculum. So I would like to know what advantages or disadvantages we would gain from adopting a spread passing scheme modeled after those of Leach, Gundy, Holgorsen, Sumlin, etc. over our current scheme. I see some advantages as: - It is much more appealing to elite HS talent since it's much more aesthetically pleasing to watch and has fewer cut blocks, so the "cut block" and "boring offense" arguments can't be used to negative recruit against us - It opens up a lot more running lanes for read option run plays as the opposing defense is playing nickel all game and only has 2 lb's in so we can take advantage of opposing secondary players lack of tackling ability (specially on one-on-one situations) considering almost every defense's worst tacklers are in the secondary - It's more appealing to linemen as their blocking techniques are closer to those of the NFL (see earlier "cut blocking" argument) - It's better equipped to come from behind and is capable of better executing a 2 minute offense - Has a better run/pass ratio than our current offense so it remains more balanced despite its schematic unbalances -It's more similar to NFL offenses than our current system (specialy considering how spread option concepts are shaping the pro game more and more each day) I see only one disadvantage: - Not dominating time of possession (although TOP is seen as less and less of an advantage in modern football) What do you guys say?
