As QB coach and OC, does Lindgren teach the QB to read the defense pre snap and make any adjustments to the play, or does he teach Sefo to call the play, look and the D, and then decide what he should do within the confines of the play? I hope it is the former, but I am guessing it is the latter. As I re-watched the Hawaii game some time back, I saw the defensive formation and what the pre-snap reads are, and from that thought of what routes should work while then watching the play and having us do something else completely. I have only re-watched a few series in the ASU game, but the same type of things keep showing up: First drive of the game, after we got a 1st down (so its 1st and 10), we lined up twins left (wide side) single WR right, single back and TE. ASU put 7 on the LOS looking to come bring everyone. They had 4 DBs, man coverage, with the lone safety deep on the twins (pre snap the safety moved so he was midway between the far hash and OB). This put Spruce one on one up top. It also left the entire middle of the field WIDE F-ING OPEN. They were basically giving the underneath routes as the CB were playing off the line. At the snap all 7 ASU in the box come in, and are picked up by OL, RB, and TE. Any drag, slant, or in route is going to be open as the CB's are 8ish yards off the LOS and would have to react and come in), but what do our receivers run? Nelson runs a go. Bobo (slot) runs a double move go (the first move is a fake in at about 10 yards which was just behind the CB and then go where the safety never bit or moved up) and the 3rd WR runs about an 8 yard stop (the ASU CB is sitting about 10 yards off the ball, takes only one step back and is on him) Sefo makes the only smart throw he has which is to a single covered Spruce, but the CB is stride for stride with Nelson as it is a go and he started 8 yards from the LOS with no other move given. Problem is all the routes are wrong. The rule I have always heard is take what the D gives you, and the D was giving an easy short 5 yard completion, and then requiring the DB to make an open field tackle as they had no immediate support. Even better, since the line picked up the blitz, instead of a double move, if bob just comes over the middle he will have a hell of a play. I knew the result prior to watching the play, but as I watched the D move on replay, this seemed like a read a QB should make. This is why I ask the question.
