    Snap under center

    Rewatching the game and saw that we took a couple snaps under center in a singleback two TE set with Woody as the RB. I haven't been really concerned with our lack of under center snaps like some, but I think that practicing it a bit and being able to use it in the shadow of our own endzone or in the redzone could be a nice tool.

    I've never really understood running the shotty on the goal line, but I don't pretend to be a d1 coach.

    Re: Snap under center

    Agree and would like to see the zone read banned between the 20's. Pound the ball quickly with any of our backs. Also would like to see the two back set where we can sweep outside or option on the other side.

    Re: Snap under center

    i love the under the center... it sets up really well for play action in the future, and i think its a perfect fit for woodys running style...

    Re: Snap under center

    I could never claim the mind of a coach, but it does seem like some under-center installs would be great for our offense. With our running back depth it seems like it would be a nice option.

    Agree, I was please to see them run it since before the season started someone said it would be used. Need to stop losing yardage close to the goal line and sets up play action as well.

    This has always been my attitude as well. As simple as it sounds, just seems like you're making a one yard situation into a 4 or 5 yard.

    With Woody-maybe. However, the announcers have pointed out and I agree that our "design" QB runs are often on these tight formations, and most of the time don't work. The QB runs work better with the spread.

    Re: Snap under center

    Also liked the between-the-tackles runs with a slot-WR coming in motion & showing the reverse action. Seemed liked old times under Loney with Ennis @ RB & Moses coming on the reverse-motion.
