Not this fallacy again. Our recruiting is not the NFL draft, never-mind the fact the results suggest our recruits do not fit this scheme. What exactly about our recruiting, which is to sign the best possible athletes and players, is innate to this system? We have WR recruits of all shapes and sizes. We use RBs of all manners, and recruiting a bigger back is one off-season away. All high school Olinemen need development, and any style of offense works with having mobile, physical, and skilled linemen. Our current scheme is not an equalizer in recruiting, if anything it is so flawed that worrying how our recruits fit is pointless.Quote:
I don't know a lot about fundamentals, but as far as schematically the offense IMO should still be a spread offense, it's what we have been recruiting for
I've heard this a few times. Isn't there coordination between the personnel in the game and the play being called? If not, that explains why Woody goes left/right sometimes rather than forward (e.g. safety in first game against Tulsa). Doesn't quite make sense to me.
If Standard bulks up, maybe (big freakin' maybe) he fits the bill.
Other than that, we'd have to recruit someone that's a bruiser.
The lack of utilization with Woody makes me think this coaching staff isnt looking for that type of back. At the very least they've shown they don't really know exactly what to do with him. I think this year was a step back in terms of play calling when Woody was on the field. If we don't intend to tailor the gameplan to a guy like that, then whats the point of recruiting one?
-Look at the past three classes of WR. More standard, mediocre speed WRs, rather than short, quick guys. Name a program or offense that predominately recruits 6-5 giants at WR.
-At RB, who does not recruit RBs that are faster and quicker than Woody? Plus, White was recruited by the previous staff. Every program would take a faster, quicker Woody, and all programs recruit smaller backs when they cannot.
-There is nothing about our Olinemen that suggests they only fit our offense. We like them as athletic, big, and physical as possible- which is useful for any system. Never-mind the fact we had better Oline play when we had road-graders for an OL.
-Tell me, what kind of tight end was Ricky Howard? Name a program that exclusively recruits TEs that are more like Olinemen than receivers. Not many.
