Zone Read

Submitted by michigan2323 on January 19th, 2010 at 6:11 PM

This offseason we need to work on the zone read. I am from oregon and I see mosoli run it to perfection. We need to work on the zone read alot with tate and denard. If we are able to do that play well it would help are offense alot.

Personally, I think we need to work on scoring more points than the other team. More than any other factor, outscoring the other team is strongly correlated with winning.

I think the key to this off-season is learning a way to let Denard be an RB that starts 15 yards behind the line, gets to full speed, takes the hand off and just runs through everyone into the endzone. I think if we do that, we will be better.

We should just put him in as the punter. Instead of punting he just takes the snap and runs. He'll have broken the sound barrier by the time he hits the line of scrimmage and will be traveling at Warp 3 when he crosses the end zone then Warp 9.9 by the time he leaves the planet's atmosphere to join his friend Space Emperor Zoltan Mesko.

Ignoring the painful writing ability of our OP, whose favorite ice cream is probably Superman, he raises a good point. Tate was just flat out bad at selling the read this last year, and Denard didn't even run it. I love them both, but they need to do some work.

I'm not sure how much available space is left on Teh Internets... But I think a post arguing that "being better at a staple of this offense would help this offense... so we should get better at it" is probably not a great way to spend any of the remaining space.

That's it!! I've been trying to figure out what we were missing for a couple of months. Thanks, random thought poster. Now could you get to work on breaking down the defensive film, GRob is awaiting your analysis.

We need to bring in some SEC speed! Because if we are fast and we run the spread we get fast people in space and then they can run past the slow B10 right?...Right? (Sarcasm) The poster may be smarter then RR. Good lord.
