The question remains will we see more of this going forward, or was it specific to Ugag?DaBuzz, I will offer my thoughts on this. I have been thinking about this exact subject.
I think the offense that you saw in the Georgia game is an evolution in CPJ's game plan that is a direct result of the "mesh attack" that VT started and it definitely involves passing. CPJ realizes our option decision making wasn't fast enough, and we have the ability to implement more play action passing. This is what we did on Saturday.
Some things I saw:
- fewer meshes in the game plan...
- slants! (We ran none against VT, I didn't count but maybe 7 against GA?)
- pass to A back in the flat
- the a back motion, and stop to vary the snap count
Georgia attacked the mesh, and they didn't have nearly the success as VT did earlier in the season.
I suggest the game plan you saw us implement against GA is the answer to your question.
