Balanced Offense

Postby Hadooj » Tue Oct 02, 2012 9:00 pm

Just read the article @ Gillislee possibly getting 30 carries. I've been a big fan of MG for 3 yrs, but hopefully he's getting most of them running out the clock with a lead. Driskel has made more strides in 4 games (particularly between 1st and 2nd weeks) than I remember seeing a QB make. Great arm, great accuracy and can run. His ability to hang in a deliver two TD's vs Tenn when he knew he was about to get hit was Tebowesque. I believe we will win this game if Muschamp lets Pease open up the playbook early with 5 to 20 yd passes, not spending the 1st Half trying to impose our running game on LSU. I know Muschamp wants to be that team that you cant stop their run when you know its coming, but we are not there yet against a team like LSU.

Curious what you guys think will work and what you think Muschamp will do?

PS...I may not remember this game on Sunday as I'll be watching in a Vegas sportsbook

We have to be able to run the ball if we want to have any shot at winning this game. If they don't respect our running game then it will be a long day. Their front 4 will create pressure and if we can't keep their linebackers and safeties honest with the threat of a run, then there will be nowhere to throw the ball. That is the key to the game.

Since I expect LSU to sell out to stop the run, I see Jordan Reed having a chance for a huge game making catches on seam routes, and over the middle. He is a huge target, and is a mismatch for a safety with the ball in his hands. I think if we can soften them up a little with Reed, LSU may have to back off the line a little bit, allowing MikeyG to do some damage. HOWEVER... if our O line can't provide enough protection against LSU's 4 man rush (strong possibility), to allow JD to make some quick passes... it's gonna be a long night.

I would mix it up with run and dink and dunk, look what BG did when we ran ran up the lanes they were getting off 5-10 yard passes is hard to defend those, of course they are tougher talent but so are we and just evolve from there. Had runs up the middle, 10-20 yard passes, just don't forget if they are getting to the QB drop it off for a 5 yard gain. No turnovers we can't have any. We need for Lswho to turn it over... twice would be nice.

After this game is over we will probably have seen all the
plays BP has in his arsenal. There will be no saving
certain plays for another game. It will be interesting to
watch his selection of plays. It is so nice to not know
the next play he will call. The last two years were hard
to endure. The defensive coaches we played against
had very little to prepare for. Saturday LSU has to
prepare for some unknown.

LSU is favored by 2 1/2 points. I think that will motivate
the Gators.

And........ Olivia is going to the game. She is a huge
gator fan and will bring us good luck.

Trying to pre-figure this game will make "You" unbalanced.
Here's how & why : Double mystery.

LSU has played teams that could stress neither the Tigers' O nor D.
Their weak opponents could not advantage a tiger mistake or prevent
LSU from rebounding from falling behind. Ergo, how can we know LSU's
real value.

While LSU is full mystery, UF is partially "hatched" out of its mystery
thru our solid score differences vs UT & UK plus our unwavering
upward improvements.

On a 1 to 10 measure scale, our skilled players JD-9, MG-9, WRs-8
but OL-5.5, DBs-5.5, DL-6. { I'm adhering to Einstein's Relativitease }.
For the "big-time" opponents UF needs 8.5+ across the spectrum AND
to keep opponents 8 or below.

Anyone who absolutely knows we can do this to LSU ?? If not now,
we will know by 1st Q if we dominate. If we get behind a little,
we'll have to wait until near the end of the 4th Q to be sure.

Geez, Gators have to play the game . AND it's in the SWAMP !

Two mystery teams--Florida is improved, but by how much? It's obvious that Pease is a big upgrade, but this is only the fifth game, and against an elite SEC defense. Neither team has beaten anyone currently ranked. Florida will have its hands full and needs to come out swinging.

It's time for DuBose to step up. Remember last year he was the deep td that took the roof off the d. With a play action ( all this gotta pound the ball talk ) I think we go deep early.... If he can hold onto its a td pass the young LSU d. If its a drop its gonna be difficult for JD to wanna go deep. We haven't had a long catch by design and if we can get me to back off I think golly has a big night. I think with Chaz green, halipio, and our our will finally get on somebody to open the seam. I also thin burton launches one in the wildcat. Just my opinion. I took the spread... :happyevil:

We will have some tough running Saturday. Hopefully we can crack the defense some. If Gilly get 30 carries I would be happy with that as it would mean some success rushing. JD is going to be a factor here. If he can put pressure on Chubby Chavis to focus on him. "Will he run, pass, play action." It will be good for UF. And LSU cannot sell out on what UF is doing on every play (i.e. Cheeseburger Charlie) Converesly with LSU on offense its simple stop the run, pressure Metzenberger, win the game.

Pease's offense is based around finding space and putting play makers in those spaces. It will be key that Driskel is able to find those play makers quickly enough. That should help open up some running seams. One thing consistent about this offense....is it's unpredictability. Will be fun to watch :cool:

JD has some legs. This is the kind of game where he needs to be allowed to use them on some design runs. Maybe some draws and some options. Will keep them from keying on MG all the time and could open up some throwing laanes as well.

We haven't been that team against anyone yet...even BG. Sure we ran for 200+ but alot of that was on a couple of very long runs and when we lined up in short yardage and tried to impose our will we nowhere. To beat LSU we are going to have to be able to run and pass and be balanced. We will not be able to run it down their throats whenever we want and we won't be able to just pass the ball all over...if we abandon the run their Dline will tee off on Driskel and if we just try to run and throw short they will bring everyone up into the box and kill us.

Considering Pease wants to run 60-70 plays of offense a game 30 carries from the number one back seems pretty balanced to me.

If UF runs 70 plays they will win. Some teams that's not the case with, but I don't see LSU being a team that just scores so quick UF is getting a ton of additional plays. 30 carries from Gilly also means there are another 10-15 runs between Burton, Brown, Jones, and Patton, so that would put it at around 65% run, 35% pass.
