    2013 run game

    Can't remember the exact interview, but I remember CPR going off about the offense and the run game and how things were going to change. This gets talked about each year, but could this be when we finally see some I-Form or singleback sets to run the ball?

    I'm assuming we'll see more pistol with the addition of Coach K

    I don't think that the sets are really all that relevant. The line just has to block. Go from there.

    Well with what our passing game will probably be, running the ball might be pretty tough.

    Probably simply more pistol. Maybe some under center but by that I mean only a little bit. Still a shot gun heavy spread offense.

    Things will change. Not sure the average fan will notice but things will change. Little things that should make a pretty good difference.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    The O-line needs to run block a whole helluva lot better, regardless of what formation they decide to run out of.

    Better o-line play and some consistent QB play would do more for the running game than any tweaks in the system would.

    Re: 2013 run game

    Running out of the pistol would allow our backs to hit the line with more speed. I think that could be an advantage.

    More pistol, which will be closer to a traditional running set than what we've been doing out of the shotgun.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Partially true, formation can help a pool o-line out alot. It's harder to hit something coming at you from a sharper angle than it is to get to something going at a fairly flat angle

    Re: 2013 run game

    I think with Richardson/Rohach behind center and improved O-Line play, i don't see anyway our running game doesn't get better from last year. With what we have returning in the backfield and on the line, how does it get worse?

    Also, i believe Wimberly is really going to turn some heads. He will be a great compliment to Woody/White.

    Does anyone think that our line will not be a lot better than last year with the addition of Coach K and our redshirted talent?











    "This is the most severe the talk has been since I've been here," said Thomas, who will be a junior. "If that was to be the case and I hope it's not -- whoever steps in, we can still do something special.
    "If it happens that Fred were to leave and I hope he stays -- we will stick together. We're super-talented, no matter what. We can do something special next year."

    The redshirted talent? I think that depends on whether Duaron Williams is fully healthy or not.

    Other than that, I'd say that Shaban Dika's health will say a lot as well.
