    Question about ISU offense

    Sorry if someone else posted this earlier, but I didn't see it. I just found this grantland article from several weeks ago about QB-option "combo" or "packaged" plays crossing over from college to NFL. Pretty interesting stuff.

    My question is: Is this the type of offense Messingham is trying to run? Some of the sets and concepts seem familiar, but I don't have cyclones.tv (cardinal sin, I know. I also don't have RV as my avatar) and so I don't watch replays of games a lot. Can folks with more football knowledge give some insight?

    Messingham runs the "Blatantly obvious and easy to read" offense.

    This will end well I'm sure.

    I have nothing but questions about our offense.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: Question about ISU offense

    Last year we ran some packaged plays, but we mostly ran the traditional zone read (run-run option). I don't remember us running any packaged plays against UNI. I don't understand why we don't run a decent amount of packaged plays. It would be a good way to run the option while not putting SR in a position to get hit as often.

    Re: Question about ISU offense

    It looks to me like our passing plays are blocked like passing plays (unlike the description in the article where the OL blocks everything like a run without getting too far downfield).

    I could be missing some of these. I dont think we do a very good job of exploiting the defense and "making sure they are always wrong" as the article explains

    Re: Question about ISU offense

    They have been run before but if I see another zone read run with an uncovered slot receiver, I am going to blow up into a thousand pieces. We don't run them much.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Another one from Grantland about Chip Kelly's offense and packaged plays:

    Now I know we're not the Eagles, or even Oregon for that matter, but the packaged plays definitely seems like the way to go.
