Football 2008---- The Spread Offense


Let's get back to football. The Spread Offense is going viral in college football. Appalachian State beat Michigan with it. Oregon killed Michigan with it.

Oklahoma is adopting it. Former FCS/I-AA coach Paul Wulff is bringing it to Washington State.

Our BCS opponent Texas Tech wrote the book on the spread offense.

The Spread Offense has its own website (including methods of defensing it).

And the Citadel wants to try to defensing it against Appalachian State.

UPDATE: Just to give you more to worry about, Texas Tech is loaded this year .

UPDATE FRIDAY 28TH: Michigan and Wisconsin are adding the spread option.

Umass would have 2 more national championships if there were running the spread. The defense has consistantly been the best in the country. They need to Upgrade the offense ASAP. No knock on the current qb, but the future is here. Benz or F150.

Has anyone heard of any position changes on our OL?

Getek to OT from TE

jIt sounds easy. Just get an athletic qb and away we go. DB likes to play smash mouth fb and control the ball with the lead in the fourth quarter with a dominating offnesive line. Running the spread seems to me to be a change in philosophy from the head coach throughout the team. Maybe it is simpler than I think, I'll let the coaching staff decide but I don't think you can run the spread for a few series than go back to the old way. It is either the spread philosophy or the smash mouth not both. Sitting in Chatanooga I remember thinking how dominate AS offensive line seemed at the end of the game or was it that we had two severly injured defensive lineman playing hurt? Do what do but do it well.

We need to schedule opposing teams with vision. What is the long-term effect of playing each OOC game.
We shouldn't be playing Texas Tech. We have no rivalry with them nor is there any reason to play them. We should be playing a team from the BE, MAC, Army, or Navy every year. (Temple, Syracuse, Buffalo preferred followed by Pittsburg) Teams we can build up a rivalry with over a period of time.

Getek to OT from TE

We only have 3 TE's on our roster.
Jorgensen, Getek, Silver and haven't signed any incoming TE freshmen or transfers. Getek at 6-6 250 has good height 6-6 to play OT. Does he weigh enough? Moving a TE from a position which has no depth doesn't sound good and shouldn't be necessary with all of the other OL we have on the roster.
Current Roster
4 RS-SR Calicchio, Coblyn, Gottehrer, Incanto
1 JR Ducasse
2 RS-SO Boyle, Ihne
5 RS-FR Binkoski, Nolan, Ostaszewski, Samuda, Sawicki
Also
4 FR true freshmen we won't see at spring ball

• Coen will be a RS-SR this year
• In just three seasons holds virtually every career record in UMass passing history. First in passing yards (8,282) passing efficiency (152.43), first in completion percentage (64.5), first in touchdown passes (66), first in completions (624), and first in attempts (968).

• Octavious will be a RS-FR this yr.
Can he beat out one of the best QB's ever to play at UM and throw for 2,500 yards this year?

Getek will have to add some size. Krevis from DL to TE
