I was just watching the BYU-Washington game and washington would every once in a while would put the rb in one position, put him in motion to the exact opposite side and then hike it. Now i know the michigan offense can run either way with the read option (qb and rb threat) but couldn't this still add an extra element of confusion to the defense. Instead of them being able to analyze what they want to do exactly before the snap, they would have to reanalyze it. Its not much, but i thought it was a neat little thing that washington used that could easily be implemented.
