    I know nothing about X's and O's, but I felt like all I heard about in August was how the pistol was going to revolutionize the offense compared to last year. I still don't really know what it is, but are we still running it? If we are, why isn't it working?

    I don't think there's a suitable name for what we run...

    Every year, we're revolutionizing the offense.
    It just comes out more like the French Revolution every time.

    We run the mess-o-****

    Which is odd because sometimes when I eat bad even my **** runs. This O doesn't even do that

    I was listening to the director's comments of Les Miserables. He said that a lot of the revolutions were basically a group provoking riots and hoping that the others around them would join in. I sometimes feel that way about our fb team. Some of the players do their thing hoping the others will join in.

    They seem to line up in the pistol at shotgun depth then motion the rb into a standard shotgun. That way defenses are like OMG is that the pistol, nevermind they looked to the sideline and called a wr screen.

    Well, we know that Mess won't be a revolutionary, because he hates throwing bombs.

    I believe we are running the cap gun offense. Constantly firing blanks.

    Was this a reference to the Camus play "the just assassins"?
