    Attacking an attacking defense

    Alright I have never coached at anywhere near a Division I level, but everyone is making a huge deal out of all the "looks" Jantz will see. The problem is there are a few big issues with Texas doing that against Iowa State.

    1. The first, is this year at times we actually look like a hurry up team and if we can push the pace with Texas as they are getting cute with late movement and blitzes there will be holes in the passing game especially in the flats and middle of the field.

    2. A late movement defense opens natural running lanes you just have to make the correct reads.

    3. A pressure defense like Texas will get make some tackles for a loss, but with backs like Johnson and White that can explode with speed and wiggle in the open field when the pressure misses there will be lots of open field and only a safety in the way of a huge play.

    I'm hoping for some good football discussion so feel free to tear this apart.

    I think a few things will be key. First, we need to get Jantz comfortable early in the game. Throw a few quick screens, or quick outs-- get him comfortable with the game before he starts making decisions on throwing deep. Also, last year we seemed to gash the Texas OL catching them in some blitzes. Misdirections and running away from the blitz will be very important.

    TX corners will be white on rice against our receivers early on... gonna need them to step up and separate to create the easy / comfortable throws.

    screen passes, play action, and mis-direction will help.

    Re: Attacking an attacking defense

    I like the bubble screen against attacking defenses. I hate the WR screen against attacking defenses, it never works, and I wish ISU take it out of the playbook. The TE is critical in the passing game, and also, quick short passes over the middle. What teams really need is to hold the rush off long enough to complete a down field deep to make teams have there safeties back off a little.

    Re: Attacking an attacking defense

    I guess when I see the words "attacking" defense, the word overpursuit certainly comes to mind. Depending on where the overpursuit is coming from I would guess Herman has a number of what they call "constraint" plays in mind to counter. Might be speed option with Shontrelle, maybe bubble screen to Horne, depends on where they are out of position.

    Re: Attacking an attacking defense

    Gap sound plays like inside and outside zone are key where all players are going one direction at snap and blocking an area.
    ISU's version of inside zone was huge last year for 2 reasons, AA making correct reads, and 2, Texas LBs overpursuing which made for a nice cutback lane.
    Various coverage looks really screw with 3 and 5 step passing game and I think you will find biggest pass plays to be from either broken plays with SJ scrambling, or boot/rollout plays where the coverage will have to roll and QB has more time to read things.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
