    A Look at Tulsa's Defensive Looks

    I found this article very interesting. Trey Scott is doing some great work for Scout.com/Iowa State. Finally back to some good info out of that site.

    Re: A Look at Tulsa's Defensive Looks

    So, according to the article our offense should have Tulsa figured out - looks and so forth.
    Tulsa's game plan: crowd line of scrimmage - this to help stop run & also to confuse the QB with blitz looks (by either bringing it or not).
    It is all we have seen since the Liberty Bowl from any team, and we haven't done squat against it.

    What do you think is Tulsa's view of the ISU offense and figuring out its formations & tendencies? We need to make teams pay for defending us this way. OU & Blake Bell went vertical quite a bit against Tulsa & they took them behind the woodshed.

    We need to play-action a lot on 1st down, use jet-sweeps (both to run & also to show this motion so they have to account), and make some plays in the vertical pass game. An occasional bubble screen will be okay, but I'd first fake the motion a couple times and either go deep or lead into a draw-run to loosen up the Tulsa DBs.

    This Trey Scott is producing some fine articles. Good to see.

    The subpar defense from the Cyclones gives the Hawks a chance to finally start to get their confidence rolling on offense. Both running the football and through the air.
    *Breakout player prediction.... Everyone is going to have their eyes on Allen Lazard because of his hype coming out of H.S., but Derrick Willies steals the show.

    One think I would like to see ISU do to teams that jump around like this is just go right up to the line and snap the ball. Pick a play and go, hoping that the defense will be half way between we are coming or we are not.

    Texas Tech will do the same with our defense.

    So, Tulsa should be good practice from what ISU will see from Tech'D.
