JT untouched, unhurried against Wofford. Not the case vs Tulane. Good thing we know how to run the ball.
I was watching the OSU-VPI game and they were talking about the wide splits Urban Meyer uses in his Spread Option offense and how that wasn't necessarily a bad thing for pass protection. Obviously, if the smaller OT's can handle the bullrush of the bigger DE, they should do fine. Their fleet footedness should handle the speed rush better. It's all about leverage. I think the smaller OT would handle someone like Clowney or JA better than the big lumbering OT.Pass protection will never be good with this offense. Wide OL splits and small OT's that are for second level run blocking.
I love that play. When we get another Dwyer with vision at BB we'll run it some more I'm sure.I watched the tackles in particular during obvious passing downs and the O Linemen remained in 3 point stances with a lot of weight on their hand. For the life of me I don't understand why on these types of downs we don't put our guys in a 2 point stance. I understand the need to "sell the run", but everyone in the stadium knows a pass is coming. On that note, we could run a draw every so often with linemen in that type of stance. Whatever happened to that draw play we ran a TON with Dwyer? It always got great yardage.
Sure. Load option I think it is called by some. We destroyed Kansas with this play repeatedly in that thrashing we gave them a couple years ago. In fact, I think we saw it yesterday if I am not mistaken.Do we run a play where we don't ride the BB into the mesh...instead the BB directly goes out to block on the perimeter and the QB options with the motioned AB? Kinda like the speed option but with the motion AB and the BB as an extra blocker on the perimeter.
Would love to see JT and Zennon optioning on the perimeter...winner breaks one for a long TD.
Thanks, Boomer. Wasn't sure what it was called. Looked it up on youtube after your post:Sure. Load option I think it is called by some. We destroyed Kansas with this play repeatedly in that thrashing we gave them a couple years ago. In fact, I think we saw it yesterday if I am not mistaken.
