"It is nothing that is a major overhaul but we want to play faster, we want to attack the basket constantly and obviously we have to get the ball inside to our big guys," Boyle said. "Our philosophy on offense hasn't changed but there are some new things that we put in that I like right now. Being effective when we get in the heat of battle, that is the challenge.". This is something we’ve heard before and we’re hearing this once again. Historically CU’s been above average on offensive possession length and below average on overall possessions in the game. This is largely due to the defense that Tad employs. CU’s straight up no gamble defense makes teams run it late into the shot clock.

Is Tad downplaying this new offensive approach? Josh Scott doesn't seem to think it's nothing major. "The new offense keeps people moving," said junior big man Josh Scott. "I like the new offense. I can be more of a playmaker out of it because they were putting a lot of attention on me and Askia [Booker]. If everybody moves, they can't just double team [us]." Passing out of the double team was certainly an issue last year with Scott, teams collaplsed on him and the lack of movement in the offense made it nearly impossible for him to find an open man. The lack of movement has always been an issue as CU is consistently in the bottom 1/4th in the NCAA in assists to field goal made.

"I'm enjoying it a lot. "Last year, sometimes ... we were stagnant, standing a little bit too much. In this offense, there's a lot of cutting, a lot of back-door (cuts), and there's a lot of ball screens and a lot of movement, a lot of free wheel. I think if everyone gets it and we all work together as a team and play teamwork basketball, we should get a lot of (wins) this year." And then AllBuffs very own (am I allowed to say that?) tweeting this out today.. [tweet]519158163061628930[/tweet] All in all I've come to expect to hear things like this coming out of Tad's mouth, but with Scott an XJ both calling this a new offense and Will (who's probably been at more practices than any non-player or coach the last few years) tweeting out things like that......Maybe, just maybe we're in store for a little shake-up in the offense this year.
