Like every other woe begotten soul that follows Ole Miss Football, I sat there Saturday night watching the Rebels take on Auburn. For the second week in a row Ole Miss has played a solid first half of football before falling apart in the 3rd quarter. All of the message board pundits over at The Spirit and in The Grove are fuming over the 2nd half meltdowns and the word “Adjustments” has become a time bomb of hatred, malice, and confusion. Well, I finally decided that I should make an adjustment to this website (1st post in about 6 months) and go over some of the things that I saw during the game.
|Someone must have mentioned Pete Boone|
-I did not TiVo the game so I have not been able to review things.
-I was so focused on the Ole Miss offense – particularly their newfound fondness of gap scheme run plays – that, like David Lee, I didn’t notice any adjustments by AU’s defense.
-This post is being based off of memory and watching live football so it may contain errors.
AU Run Game:
Gus Malzahn’s offense has been cataloged and dissected by every football writer in the country. People that study his offense start to notice the reality: is not an overly complex scheme that is loaded up with a bevy of different plays and schemes, but rather a nice mix of plays that are masked several times over and executed from a number of different formations, shift, motions, and personnel groupings. Today I really just want to hit on two of Malzahn’s top run plays against Ole Miss: the Power and the Hand Sweep.
