    no-huddle offense

    Our defensive depth might be our biggest problem this year. Wouldn't running a no-huddle offense cause more playing time for our defense? I can see us using the no-huddle against the non-conference teams, when the game clock is low, when we are behind, or in short yardage or nickel situations; but if we consistently try to extend the game against deeper opponents, aren't we playing into their advantage?

    Re: no-huddle offense

    Tom Herman has already said that the no huddle will be a primary staple of his offense.

    I love it!
    Who was that other school who uses it?
    ...worked like a charm.

    I think you're assuming that no-huddle means being impatient pre-snap and not using the play clock. A lot of teams that run no-huddle use it to prevent the defense from substituting and allow the quarterback to use most of the play clock to make pre-snap reads and select a play to best exploit the defensive formation. This doesn't necessarily mean that the offensive possessions are any shorter than a traditional offense.

    While true, the spring game performance says otherwise. We hustled and snapped pretty quickly.

    I think the coaches realize that our defense is not good enough top to bottom to not allow points, and they will probably allow a lot of them, so finding any way for the offense to put up a lot is a must.

    Hence, no huddle and 60-45 games.

    Re: no-huddle offense

    It won't be a problem when our D is only on the field for 3 plays and a punt every series

    Or for one play with a pick or fumble

    I don't believe that Herman has stressed the importance of his offensive players getting in peak shape so that they can rest and recover standing around waiting to snap the ball. He plans on wearing down the opposing defense by not wasting any more clock time than he has to.
