    More Versatility in Auburn's Gameplan Next Year?

    Gotta get a better push in those A-Gaps though. Can't just be due to space.
  2. I'm sure we're all happy and a bit more satisfied now that Coach Malzahn seems to have "come into his own" in letting the players play and his coaches coach, however, I've a question that is pretty pressing. Will our offense be more versatile next year and actually excel in doing more than spreading the field laterally to make easy money with run plays and screens? We've seen glimmers of a deep passing game this year, however, it seems that there are still some blemishes that keep even the most ardent of sunshine pumpers from simply letting go. Our offense is pretty one-dimensional in certain facets. Go up against a team with good enough linebackers and athletic enough safeties to get downhill and fill + scrape laterally and make plays in space and we're fairly sunk. This definitely needs to be remedied. Whether it's going whole-hog pitch and catch, or simply adding in more route concepts and combos that make use of the defense's predisposition to hone in on our running-lanes and neglect their pass duty a bit. Either by aligning closer to the LOS, or shortening their drift in coverage. I believe that without such versatility-in-scheme, we'll be shackled to having to rely on players during tough and debilitating schedules that are sure to bring injuries with them. Thoughts?

    Had to hop off for a while, but I see it was not bad luck that I was gone! Kirby Smart said: "Humility is only a week away."

    Big in the sense of deep shots.

    ANOTHER THING THAT I HATE ABOUT OR OFFENSE: Most of our big plays require MAX PROTECTION which takes away a TE option as well as our Athletic RB.

    Hit the RB when you see Man coverage with a LB.

    Kerryon had to work WAY too hard for that one.

    Hero-Ball... A simple recovery will be all we need, not picking it up and trying to salvage the play.

    The only thing that I DON'T like is that Alabama is saving Bo. That's what killed us last game. Bama starts feeding and letting Scarbrough get hot and into a rhythm. When that happens, that's when the defense gets a little stressed because that's a load to handle. Requires a lot of attention leaving the pass a lot more open, as well as allowing play-action. Also, Alabama's balanced formations make this a lot easier so it's more of a caution than a guarantee.

    That would make all the difference honestly. I'd love to combo those routes with the HB's too.

    What?! A creative goal line play? This is going to be a good one.

    Kerryon is good at the moment, though I'd have him run a few more routes past just screens. Need to send him on Wheels and Angles in order to really get him open a bit more. All in all, I'm liking this offensive attack.

    Coach has got to limit the runs by Stidman. Also, still no intermediate routes being ran. Nonetheless, that Jumbo slot with NCM is perfect.

    This is a really good start for Auburn. Not just in holding Alabama, but also the fact that they limited their TOP. That's critical. Keeps the offense from getting out of rhythm and also makes sure that Alabama doesn't get a good strategy to bleed your defense dry.

    zone read option

    Those are "Unplanned" runs, by a team of which defenses have scouted don't have a QB who's a threat to run. When you start including more planned running into the gameplan, then defenses will begin to scout and prepare for a QB who may keep it on a backside read and assign the will to handle the exchange, while the end takes the dive, or start tightening the box with more cover-3 and in the box safeties to support. Bottom line, it's good to have the QB sprinkle in a run or two when necessary, however, make it a feature and you'll regret it unless you have a super-athlete at that position.
