The problem with the triple option (IMO) is that hardly anyone is HS runs it. So when you get guys to GT, it is not what they are used to and takes time to learn. I also think the TO is outdated. IF* run correctly, it is unstoppable, but how many seasons will it take to cut your losses and try something else? How many winning teams (NC) run the TO?
I think that is the problem, but I don't get paid to be a coach.
I think points per drive is the simplest and most direct measure of an offensive efficiency. It's comparable to the scoring offense stat (point per game) but does not suffer from the growing difference in number of possessions on offense between the hunh passing offenses that can get close to 20 possessions a game and GT's more methodical run-first offense which will have closer to 10 possessions a game.
What national ranking in points per drive over the last six years would you accept as evidence that our offensive scheme is not the problem?
