    Why dont we go under center?

    I really hate it when its 3rd and 2 and we line up in the pistol or shotgun when they know we're going to run it. Why dont we line up under center and hand it off to Woody?

    Because then they would really know your going to run it....staying in the spread does just that spreads the field, if they put more in the box, then you should be able to take advantage of a weak spot somewhere in the defense

    Damn Rich beat me to the obvious answer....

    Although, Woody since his last fumble has not seen much of the field.

    Re: Why dont we go under center?

    I'm tired of the no huddle, hurry up offense we currently have. The problem is there is no hurry up in the offense at all. The ball is still being snapped with 5 seconds left on the play clock. Why not get the entire offense in a huddle to call a play if your still going to use the entire play clock?

    We do not have a hurry up offense, it's a no huddle offense. And the reason we do it is the defense can't make substitutions.

    OK, a no huddle offense but still, it is not working! Why not try an actual huddle offense. Our offense can't get much worse so why not try to change to something that might just work?

    Re: Why dont we go under center?

    It is clearly time to lose faith in our coaches ability to recruit and develop their players, and change something for the sake of change.



    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    keeps the defense on the field. doesnt allow them to substitute for certain situations.

    The only problem is the defense has no problem substituting players at all.

    We don't go under center because we're such a dangerous offense in the shotgun! 100th in the NCAA.

    Teams still sub on us.. Not understanding why we don't take advantage of that more.
