    Offensive Playcalling: Diversity, Illusion are keys

    Great article on offensive schemes. Our offense has had neither illusion nor diversity.

    Meh. He doesn't know what he's talking about. It's not about illusion and diversity.

    It's about 4th downs and screens.

    Thanks for posting the article. Make it look complicated, but keep it simple. Brilliant.

    Re: Offensive Playcalling: Diversity, Illusion are keys

    3 years ago I wrote pretty much this same article for the IFCA journal. Simple schemes out of tons of formations and motions.

    Had ISU hired Harbaugh (he was interested; at San Diego at the time) instead of Chizik we would probably be running this offense and CPR would still be the head coach.

    Even before illusion and diversity, however, comes tiny little thinks like blocking, and execution.
