    bubble screen practice

    I was watching the bubble screen practice on CycloneTV , mostly looking for the missing WR, and came away feeling the way I always do with the bubble screen, just don't do it if you can't get it right. It looked like the 12 or so times they ran it, the result would have been a loss in all but maybe 2.

    Re: bubble screen practice

    Did they run it after read option right and read option left failed?

    It's a litt tougher if the defense knows it's coming.


    It's all snark from here on out

    implying that the defenses last year didn't know it was coming on a passing down.

    Bubble screens aren't really used on passing downs, since they are more of a run play anyway, so I would say, no, the defenses last year did not expect them on passing downs.

    Re: bubble screen practice

    Bubble screens are a necessity to open up the run game. Has to be a threat to pull LB's out of the box otherwise you are playing 7 on 7 in the run game with 2 safeties still to come. Better odds playing 2 on 2 or 3 on 3 out in space. Bubble screen is an extension of the run game. 4 yards is a success.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: bubble screen practice

    In the past, we haven't had a QB that can get the ball to the WR quickly and on target. That just kills any chance of it working at all. You also need WRs that will block too. We haven't had that either for a while.

    Unless those two things improve, there's no need to run it IMO. All I can see in my head are visions of WRs having to reach well behind them, down at their ankles, or up high to catch these bubble screens. Once that happens, the play is dead from the start. These are bang bang plays. You MUST have a fast accurate throw, then get a good initial block, and then they can be huge plays.

    Re: bubble screen practice

    Unless you have Aaron Rodgers as your QB, it's hard to run a successful bubble screen. Accuracy and quick release are a MUST from your QB. It would work good with Jarvis West if we had big strong WR to block.

    Re: bubble screen practice

    Speed of delivery looks improved with Richardson; with some better blocking from wr things looked improved. It's pretty much 3 on 3 out there so I wouldn't judge too much. We know more against uni

    Re: bubble screen practice

    I know it's been frustrating at times, but that play is essentially how we knocked off OSU 2 years ago

    Um... no.

    We knocked OSU off two years ago because Quinn Sharp missed a field goal with less than two minutes to go.

    Then Barnett fumbled the ball on the very next play that we luckily recovered and ran out the clock to go to overtime.

    Bubble screens had nothing to do with us winning that game.

    Uh, its hard to run a successful bubble screen without one of the top NFL QBs? I think you are overestimating the bubble screen. I've seen plenty of teams run it successfully against us.

    The game was more than the last 2 minutes. There were another 58 before that.

    You sound EXACTLY like the KU fans that were "justifying" what happened in Hilton this past year.

    Can't have it both ways? Can you?

    We dodged a bullet more than once against OSU, and bubble screens had nothing to do with it.
