When we fire Brick we should hire a coordinator whose adept at running the option. Most people think that the option is boring. However, when you run the triple option effectively it makes for a lot of exciting big gains on the ground and through the air.
Not to mention the fact that this conference is totally unprepared from top to bottom to deal with a good option attack. Before the rest of 'em caught on we'd could win a couple of MEAC championships on that basis alone.
Nobody runs the option anymore. And that's unfortunate cause in my opinion it's fun to watch and makes for good football.
But where do we get somebody to implement it? And if we ran it how many of our current athletes would still have been interested in coming to A&T? Everybody wants to play in a pass it system nowadays.
on second thought, Brick could implement the damn option. He knows the veer like the back of his hand. I guess he might be trying to steer away from it to prove a point to Pough after Pough's backhanded comment in the SC papers when Brick left. It's time to go back to it.
Why not just be more simplified and balanced and run the wing-t?
Simplified? YES. Running the wing-t gives an offense more options than the triple option. Particularly with this bunch.
The team is full of outside speed but doesn't have the big, grinding fast guy like Brick had with Coty Martin S.C. State. (Brian Johnson is okay but we apparently aren't going to use him - as a tailback.)
Before you mention that dreaded name (referring to a certain AD at NCCU) - Remember that I grew up (90-94) watching DSU in th early 90's under Bill Collick, who pratically lived with Tubby Raymond during his summers at Delaware.
He's right. The only reason it stopped working (in my opinion) was 1) we quit executing it worth a damn and 2) literally almost half the conference was running it (us, Hampton, DSU) so it was the most common offense to see.
Of course if you wanna stop it nine plays out of 10 all you have to do is follow the guards, but that tenth time the ball is somewhere's else.
Nobody in I-AA is running it anymore to my knowledge.
Fred Kaiss?!?!? Everybody in the swac clowns that guys' existence.
There's a ton of wing-t coaches out of work right now. Our receivers can't catch, our qbs can't hardly pass, our o-line can't hold a block. It's probably the only offense that would work for us with our current situation. Of course, next year it won't matter because we'll see a lot of new faces and hence a new situation.
We should keep Brick. It's Coach Small's decision anyway and I think we should give them time to implement their program. If it doesn't work then you revisit the topic.
