I agree, although you need someone very talented doing those litle pitches. Those could get turned over real easy. I love the Gators last TD with Tebow jumping to throw.:lol:
Yeah he has done that a few times in his career. The killer was OU covered that play really well. He just made a dead on throw to the WR.
I love the option, and running game in general. It's too bad that college football in general has turned into this quick scoring passing game.
I believe that Florida's particular option style is unique to having a player like Tebow. After he leaves, they are not going to just be able to put the new guy in and have the same success or be able to run the same type of offense.
However, with regard to the triple option-type formation that you speak about, I do think that you will see teams try to do more of that, but you need a QB who is not only a real threat to run/pass, but one who can withstand lots of punishment and dole some out. Tebow is pretty special that way.
As I've stated before, I think that the next Big 12 team to revert to an option/wishbone attack will have success - for example, if I were Baylor, and had 3 years of Robert Griffith to work with, that's where I would go.
That's what makes Florida so good though, when Tebow leaves Meyer will build the offense around whatever the next guy is good at. When they had Leak in there they threw it a lot more, they built the offense around him. Tebow comes in with his ability to run and make good decisions so they went to this offense. I really wish we had coaches that would run the offense based on our strengths and weaknesses
Yeah, if they had Florida's talent
The option is making a nice comeback in the game. The problem I see with it is having the type of QB like Tebow who can put his head down and rush when necessary. And all the other skill players and a talented OLine. Plus you have to mix it up. UF has good WRs so the opposing D has to play coverage where as in a pure option they could play up.
