    Default SLU Triple Option?

    I heard Hud mention at his pres confrence that SLU is an option team that will run a lot of triple option at us. I did not know that. That is always a scary situation as our D never sees that. That style O can be the equalizer if guys aren't discipline and get out of their responsibity. I hope the D is practicing with no football this week.

    Georgia southern didn't run the triple option last year against us for 2 reasons 1 they were down to there 3rd QB who is more of a spread guy and 2 the new OC was trying to move away from it. He has been fired and a new OC from Ga Tech was hired to go back in the option direction. Fritz didn't have the personnel to run it in his first year at TU. HUD said the QB is a legit 4.3 guy transfer from South Carolina.

    A better example of what the option can do for an undermanned team is see what Ga So did to Florida 2 years ago or how our undersized military academy's compete against bigger more physical defenses all the time. That O has me more nervous today than I was a week ago.

    Im on the other side I feel 1000x better going up against a flex team than a spread with the D we run everyone fills a gap and play smart football

    Clearly the key to winning this game will come down to who wins the turnover battle

    Not scared of the triple option at all.

    I agree.

    Our pass defense always worries me--especially when our corners line up 10 yards off the line.

    I would rather face the TripOpp right out the gate than 7 games into a season when you're hopefully in a groove.

    ........remember that the option offense necessitates assignment defense with particular defensive positions responsible for certain parts of the option scheme.....if these assignments are missed, dive, keep, and pitch results in big time success....like T-Bine mentioned, glad we got them with some video and practice time!!!

    They will run a 2 qb system so that tells me all the QB will do is key off on playside DE

    Our defense will need all of 2 possessions to figure out and shut down SLU. Not worried about them in the least. This will be a lopsided victory and we still won't know what kind of team we have. Tulsa will be the measuring stick.

    We fare better against the run than the pass. QBs that can stand in the pocket and sling it have picked us apart in the past (at least last season.) See Idaho, Boise, App State games vs. G. Southern and TU. I'd take an option team out the gate over a pro style.

    Did you watch the Ga So game last year? If you did you would know they did not run their typical tripple option, as they did in previous years under Fritz. They were using their 3rd team QB due to injury. Fritz had not been able to recruit the atheletes he needs to run the option in just one year, so neither of those are good examples. SLU has a 4.3 speed QB very suited for that O. You are also referencing last years D which had very good linebacker play to stop the run. LB is a huge ? mark on this D. This year our DBs will be the strong point so you'd think pass D will be better. Pass D is more about the rush that it is about coverage. You can not cover a receiver for ever. If D line play is not good they can run option or pass it don't matter we'll be in trouble either way.

    We're not a classic triple option team like you see at Navy/Air Force/Army etc. We run a spread offense with a downhill style running attack, with some triple option principles mixed in. We threw it about 25 times per game last year.

    So a Spread Option Offenses unless the QB lines up under center

    We run some spread option, but we're more diverse than that. I don't think we've lined up under center since 2013, maybe a few times in 2014.

    Ga State lost to FCS Tenn State last night. It's not that uncommon for this sort of thing to happen. UL better be ready to play four full quarters of inspired football against SLU.
