Alright everyone, I just want people's opinions on this. What do you think about running offensvie plays out of the shotgun on the goalline? I am talking inside the 5-yard line. I only say this because when ASU was playing Missouri last week, ASU was on the 1, it was first down, and they were about to punch it in for the win. So they proceed to run shotgun read and a QB ISO from shotgun. WHY DO THIS ON THE GOALLINE? I hate Shotgun on the goalline. I notice OSU does this as well, and I get so nervouse. When you get inside the 5, it should be under center, pound, pound, pound, pound, and pound some more. QB sneak, FB dive, HB iso/offtackle. But to use shotgun on the GL and try to run it in that way, you have to wait for the ball to get to you, then you are already 5 yards back. I-formation = quicker.
I say this because ASU was on the 1, the got stuffed, twice, and tried to play action pass I believe and got stuffed again, all on the one. Then they got a penalty, threw the ball and it got picked. I believe that was the sequence of events. Honestly, why do shotgun inside the 5? That is when power should meet power and as quick as possible. Thoughts? I was really pissed they did not score because I picked them to win in my college pick-em and it cost me first place. haha
what are your thoughts?
