Anyone else notice Braxton taking practice snaps as if he were under? Could we see a shift to what Chip Kelly does in Philly?
Hate to be that guy, it's great we are talking about the d-line, all the firepower on offense, but what about the field goal kicker? That will cost us a lot of games.
Good point. We might resemble more of Oregon in terms of how we run the spread until we find our power back. It will be easy to run the offense the first half of the season without a power back but I hope to god we find one because in the Big Ten you won't survive without one. I also Herman's version of the spread allows Braxton to be more of a quarterback when comes to the passing game than most spread offenses in country.
Think San Francisco 49ers
I would say we're running a more pro style spread offense than the offense Urban ran at Florida. A lot more emphasis on the running back setting up the play action pass but we have a quarterback that can run. IMO
If the play side defensive end crashes does the pulling guard log block him or does the pulling still work his way to the second level regardless of what the defensive end does?
I've read a lot about how Alabama and Florida State build their teams. Start by recruiting athletes for defense and then if those athletes can change the scoreboard then put them on offense. So my question is, are we recruiting more athletes for defense who can play most positions in the back 7 or are recruiting guys who are position specific?
