PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
What is everybodies favorite offensive set we currently run? I really love our BRACARO set and the options we have off of it. How do you guys feel?
I love the Pistol, even though we haven't run much of it. Such a strong set for Braxton to run out of.
This one: (Edit: I fixed it, Earle. Thanks!)
OT OG C OG OT WR
HB WR WR
Love Hyde and Smith in the same backfield. Both can run it and block for the other. Tough to defend those 2 horses plus Braxton.
OT OG C OG OT H-BACK WR WR
Triple option to the weak side, I believe the formation looked something like this and the first time I saw it was againist the Illini. I think the H back was off set though.
Mine would be similar to hodge's, but the RB would be on the opposite side of the QB, slightly behind the QB, and the other running back would be slightly in front of the Qb on the opposite side, a little something like this in the backfield:
OT OG C OG OT TE
RB WR WR
Either TE or a WR on the weak side.
Maybe just formatting, but Hodge and Jason, those appear to be illegal formations with your inside WR's on the LOS covered. Need to drop one of those guys back a step so they can be eligible for a pass.
@Earle, yah I tried, for some reason the formatting wouldn't allow me to do the proper alignments
This set if pretty offensive
Shotgun, 5 Wide Outs. Spreads the field out, and I know the only options will be Braxton making a play throwing the ball, or Braxton making a play running the ball. #Fireworks
The set we were in on that play in the Penn State game where Braxton faked the handoff to Hyde then followed him up the hole and Hyde suddenly became the lead blocker. That play has a TON of potential. There's a reason we've only seen it once.
"Sherman ran an option play right through the south" - Greatest Civil War analogy EVER.
We don't seem to run it much this year (esp with Boren on D) but I loved the power pistol with the RB behind Brax and Boren next to him. Then either split out Stoney or have him along the line, or move him in motion with a WR to either side and run option, power dive, play action, or a counter with Boren coming back the other way and Stoney leading the way.
Splitbacks for me.
Braxton, Hyde and Smith in the same backfield will be an unstoppable force next year. We've only seen the tip of the iceberg on that formation
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men
I think Jordan Hall takes a Philly Brown role.
TE T G C G T TE
RB FB RB
Straight T baby!
I am outdated & old school though!
Very happy with our offensive output now!
WR OT OG C OG OT WR
WR / RB WR / TE
QB RB / FB
Base Shotgun spread .... the possibilites from this set are endless with runs/passes, motion to trips / two back sets / 5 wide empty, etc.......
Let's not forget the wishbone:

Loved to watch those old Texas/Oklahoma matchups.
The TE screen we ran against NEB last year with Jake. Have not really seen it since. Easy throw and odds of picking up yards after catch are good. Very good.
Only place I can find it is at 1:58 mark here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Z60CkUcOiGg#!
