PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
anyone else think it would be hilarious if our first offensive play is Dave?
No...Dave's dead baby...daves dead. It will be a short pass play to get Braxton in the game. Or...a motion run...but I'd go more with a pass. It'll probably be a 67% pass and 33% run...IMHO. Unless Brax breaks more runs of broken pass plays.

Meyer still runs Dave.
What he doesn't do it is run it 95% of the time, regardless of situation and effectiveness.
I was thinking of "Dave to troll the fans" when I saw the thread title. The first 3rd and long (10 or more yards) I say we do a play action pass.
Class of 2010.
I know he still runs it. but with all the hype about the new offense, i think it would great if we lined up and ran it first. the crowd reaction would just be classic
If it is raining: Read Option
If not: Bomb. Going for it all on play one
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
I vote read option as well...
@Buckeye76, doubt we pass anywhere close to that much, especially with the rain coming.
a play called 'The Bollman'... run up the middle, and regardless of how many yards Hyde can gain, he takes a knee after 1 yard in honor of the Walrus.
Braxton fumbles the snap..picks it up and runs for 10 yards.
play-action fake to C. Hyde....deep crossing completion to D. Smith...1st down
"You win with people." - Woody Hayes
An inside zone play to Hyde.
Fake Jet Sweep and then a deep pass to Devin Smith
It'll probably be either a kick off or kick return.
4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off
Ill call the inside zone or the draw, I mean thats all we ran against nebraska and look how that turned out
Bubble screen. Duh.
When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.
I want play action to Devon Smith down the sideline for an 80 yard TD pass... As the sports information director at the high school I coach at says... I WANT TO EMBARRASS PEOPLE!
I thought a player said it would be a special play and would go for a big gain...no idea what that could mean but it should be fun to watch
Brewster: thread clearly says OFFENSIVE play. Nice try though :)
Meyer calls a "3 yards and a cloud of dust" run up the gut just to #%&@ with us. Then he does a "just kidding" play where Miller throws a beautiful slant route to Philly Brown for a 25 yd gain.
They come out line up in the I formation then switch to with spread and still runs the inside zone read with Born getting the ball then the next play is a Bubble screen to Stoney and he houses it.
I actually think it would be great if Meyer trolled the stadium:
Sends the team out from the sideline, straight to the line, no huddle. He's got Boren, Vannet, Heuerman, Stoney, Hyde in the game. He lines up in power I, triple TE with like 25 seconds on the play clock. They sit there for a couple of seconds while the whole stadium groans/gasps. Then they shift to a 5 wide set, motion Hyde back into the backfield, run the draw stick read with a hook and ladder added. 60 yard TD (assuming a 40yd return by Philly Brown to open the game). I might die of giddiness.
If you remember last season. Fick's first play was a false start by Shuggy Bear, no joke. Then the second play was DAVE

Read Ross' article. It may very well be a variation of Dave.
I'm going with Dave as well.
Play Action. 73 yard TD to Devin Smith.
I'm calling a 3-WR set with Hyde in the backfield behind Braxton, Hyde shifts to Braxton's left, if it's raining it'll be a read option, if it's not raining fake-zone read, roll to the left and looks for Philly Brown for a 8-10yd gain.
Boren with the first carry mark it down!!!!
I'm going screen to philly brown for 13 yards
Dave in the pistol to Hyde, five yard gain.
Statue of Liberty or Hook and Latter
Fake Dave QB roll-out.
An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches
Quick kick punt from B. Miller to catch them off guard.
For $3700 donated to the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research, the first play of both the first and second half will be called by the auction winner from the Women's Football Clinic. It will be interesting to see what the calls are.
Even Meyer knows you need to shake the offseason nerves out. He'll start conservative with some runs, options, and bubble screens to get the team feeling good. THEN it'll start blowing up.
Counter Trey all day.
Fake zone read, reverse to Philly, throwback to Braxton who takes it to the house.
Triv-Headline says first play!
True haha I was referenceing the text in the thread. Call this one a tie
Draw-Hyde gain of 6
~Because we couldn't go for three~
Zone Read and he hands to Hyde without reading the DE.lol
