Loved the map. Proud to be from the rust belt waste land.
In some spread offenses they do. Clemson's offense comes to mind. But Urban's spread is based on more traditional one-back running plays (power, counter, and zones)
I totally agree. It's almost like watching coach's film.
Yes, against vertical routes you are essentially playing man to man but it looks like zone against horizontal or crossing routes.
Yes and no. During any running play the defense will have at least a +1 numerical advantage (b/c the ball carrier's defensive counterpart will always be unblocked). In a more traditional offensive scheme that number increase to +2 because the QB hands the ball off and doesn't block anyone. However with a read option play one player is "blocked" by the QB's read and the defense is back to +1.
With a triple option that doesn't change the fact that the defense has a +1 advantage. The main difference is which defenders are read. During the triple the QB reads one defender and pitches off another. Because both defenders are on the play side the offense has a 3 vs 2 fast break. Compare to a zone read where the QB reads a defended on the backside of the play. In short the offense does not gain the same blocking advantage that the triple does. If you ask old school triple option coached they will tell you the zone read isn't even a real option play. This doesn't really apply to inverted veer or power read play since it reads a play side defender.
Sorry for the long post I hope it helped clear things up.
Glad that it wasn't as serious as earlier believed and glad that he's back with the team. Lesson learned.
In the first example the d-line is in and over front while the example in part two shows them in an under front.
Remember in zone schemes the aiming point for the running back is more of a recommendation and not a hard and fast rule. Backs usually have more freedom make a read based on what lanes open and cut up into the vacant hole.
Pretty sure that kid just smashed my PR on dead lift.
I need to go work out, like right now.
You don't think they might throw it bit more with Kiffin (WCO background) as OC?
Just goes to show that even something as "simple" as zone blocking can be incredibly nuanced.
Add in things like pass protections and it's no wonder why some people consider linemen to be the smartest players on the field.
In the clip it looks like the WR runs a route (a post or a dig possibly) instead of stalk blocking him. The DB would get used to seeing that on running plays and set himself up even more for a play action shot.
Since it's a read play the QB would give it on the sweep to the H back.
As for the blocking assignment, the coaches can change that depending on what the defense is doing.
My 14 y/o daughter used the word "ratchet" the other day to describe another girl.
I thought she was calling her a socket wrench.
With the way the safties chase that jet motion I'm suprised we didn't murder people with the play action more often than we did.
I thought it was just the mood lighting?
If Braxton has developed as advertised, we will see more in the passing game.
As long as it's not against a SEC team in Atlanta. I don't see how they get away with calling those "neutral" site games.
The only one I'm aware of is Sam Boyd, UNLV's stadium.
Amen to that. What are they feeding these kids nowadays?
As far as ass chewings are concerned, that wasn't even that bad.
Um...what are talking about here?
Needs more chrome.
Thats true about Hyde. Not a lot of wasted movement, one cut and boom gets headed north/south which is what you want from a back in a zone scheme.
Looking forward to the rest of the series.
