He said he knew from painful personal experience that the D will cheat over to the wide side and you will get burned with the same play to the short side.
I have wet dreams about repeatedly running the weak side triple option out of the I formation vs UVA in 1998. It just kept working, over and over.

I agree on the recruiting angle as well. The simple fact is that everyone's competing for Pro Set archetypes. That's what the recruiting 'stars' are based on, and it's what everyone competes over, and that forces lots of really great offensive talent to the defensive side of the ball in the transition from high school to NCAA. We get to use these guys where they want to play, which gives us a competitive advantage in recruiting ATH style players.

Noone is gonna play B-Back and SB. Kids will play one or the other.

Correy Earls would make a good SB.

Then, reading an end and deciding to keep or pitch and making that pitch correctly is equally difficult. Nesbitt did not look like he handled the ball well at all to me this year.

If he does not work out at QB, I think he would be a great slotback, including some pass option plays.

Does anyone think Manley will be a possible darkhorse to "get" this offense and be a contender for playing time?
I just believe that CPJ is the most adept developer of an option QB the world has ever seen. He's had great athletes run (GSU) it and had not so great athletes run it (Navy) and both have had great success (more at GSU). He had 3 different QB's in three years at Navy and similar situations at GSU and barely missed a beat (maybe half a beat) with each change. All that is to make the point that he can develop Josh Nesbitt, with the athletic tools he has (and he isn't an intellectual slouch --> he passed his freshman year at GT), into a great option QB without a doubt.

The reason is because they rep it a "zillion" times at every practice. It becomes less mental and more mechanical.

Manley won't be coming back to play at all next year. I heard that Gailey sat him down before the end of this season and told him he should not expect his scholly for his 5th year. I was somewhat shocked to hear that Gailey did this, but he honored 4 years and Manley never did more than hold a clip board. But Manley is going to be a regular student next year.

Obviously you don't watch a lot of football to think that the shotgun is run 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage.

Bullsh*t they won't. You don't think in short and goal situations that Dwyer might appear as a SB with Kelly or Bray at the RB/FB position? I guarantee it.

Has anyone every played both SB and BB for PJ before? I don't know, I'm asking.

Do note, SBs and BBs have two different position coaches.

I agree with BOR on this one. Dwyer is a very very good candidate to play both positions. And why not? We are realtively thin (or young and undeveloped) at RB next year, a key position for the WTF O. Dwyer could do either.

Additionally, why not dangle a carrot for future star runningbacks by showing that they'll get reps in both methods of running, methods needed for development for the NFL. It can't hurt.
