I agree after watching their Tennessee game they are definitely vulnerable.Honestly I'm pretty happy with this matchup. Could be much worse like playing Syracuse, VT, or any team that can throw with the miscommunication and coverage issues we had with Knowles in the secondary and assuming we could be without Redwine.
Diaz, Richt, and everyone on our D has seen enough of GT to be prepared. Just preach patience, gap accountability, and tackling and we won't have any problems.
Also, don't look at their defensive numbers and assume they are stout.. obviously they are going to be ranked that way based off time of possession. They give up chunk plays and they are vulnerable on the backend.
I was watching their film, they are small DL similar to Duke. I think we need to spread them out and attack their LB's ability to cover in space. Also they don't have much depth on the DL... hopefully by 3rd quarter we have worn them out with quick scores, forcing them to abandon the run.The reason why I think we could lose this game is their passing attack out of the option. They stick daggers into teams with that crap. Their defense isn't a joke either this year, kinda like the tougher than expected Duke defense.
Wrong. It only works against lesser talent. Miami destroyed the Nebraskas and Okalahomas of the world who used to run this crap.It's a great offense. It's not as sexy as the spread-em-out, fun and gun offenses that are so popular today, but the triple option is a fantastic college offense.
If there were any team in major college football running this offense today with halfway decent athletes, they would be blowing teams out left and right.
There's a reason teams used to run this stuff a lot more - because it WORKS.
