Thread: Bobsled Formation

  1. Default Bobsled Formation

    Is it just me, or does something positive usually happen out of this formation? Surprised we don't see it more.

    Could be a dive, option to either side, zone read run from the QB, or a pass... The first touchdown against Georgia State was out of this formation and the blocking was perfect and I don't even think Wertz got touched. But it just seems like over the last couple of years that formation rarely leads to a stuffed play.

    Am I dreaming that?

    I really wish we'd counter out of it though.

    We telegraph the playside by the motion prior to the snap, and it seems teams are starting to key on that and bite hard to that side.

    When we DO counter, it will be epic.

    Good point... That could almost be your base formation at that point... Option to either side, dive, QB zone read, counter, or pass. All options. The counter would be deadly out of it if you telegraph with motion but then counter the other way.

    It was successful against GA State, but honestly I don’t recall a lot of success with it throughout the year, but I may have forgotten a few good runs from it.

    The reason it is successful is because we do not use it much....4-5 times a game is enough....

    I'm not sure on what part you are dreaming, but out of that formation we did score a TD and Werts got rocked after pitching the ball.

    The first touchdown was more of a zone read out of that formation and Wertz scored untouched from 15 yards out or so. The option out of the formation where he got rocked, that was bobsled formation?
